Thumbs down Looking for support buddy

Hello I am new to this site but I am truly hoping that if I have some support and somewhere to turn besides the kitchen I will have the willpower to stop saying " Ohhh I'll try again tomorrow " and realize that everyday is a new battle to overcome . I have spent the last few months saying that I;ll start a diet tomorrow and that resulted in 20 more pounds gained . I know that if I keep it up the rest of my life is gonna fly right past me as I sit back and say that I'll do better tomorrow . Sooooo now is the time and I am going to do it . I weigh 224 and am 5'3 ......I've started the new year by giving up PEPSI (which I was drinking constantly) and have switched to mostly water and some diet pop. For me this is a big achievement cause water wasn't in my previous vocabulary . If anyone is interested in beings buddies let me know . I need some help with motivation but will be more than willing to give motivation in return . And good luck everyone .

Hey I'm a fatchickinPA as well! Right up there with you in weight too! Just started today, and haven't a clue as to what I'm doing. Grasping at straws you might say.
Maybe we can kickstart each other!

I feel for you all up in the northland... I'm originally from New York State and know how it is in the winter time.. hard to get outside and do anything.. hard to stay inside and keep warm! I know all I want to do when its cold is curl up, read a book, and sit by a fire.. exercise is not high on my list.. especially because I have to be outside to feel like I'm doing anything...

Alabama hasn't been conducive to exercise lately.. it's been cold here (30's & 40's)- I know, you're laughing, but southerners can't handle cold. You should see when they mention snow on the news!

Good luck to you all.. and keep everyone posted on your progress!!
