Talking Hi! I am New!

Hello! I am Courtney, 18, and really want to lose weight. When I was in 9th grade, I was 130 lbs and had no problems with my body. Gradually, I gained 50 lbs. So, here I am, a college freshman who weighs 180 lbs, is 5'9, and wears anywhere from a 13-17 size pant. I joined 3fatchicks.com because I need the motivation and these forums seem really friendly and helpful. What I am really looking for here is a weight loss buddy!

One major goal I have accomplished for myself is giving up Coke/Pepsi. My very last Coke was on Jan. 3, 2004. Honestly, I feel GREAT because my boyfriend did not think I could give them up since I was drinking 3 cans a day. Now, I drink tea, lemonaide, and orange juice/soda.

I started exercising everyday starting a couple of days ago. I use 2 lb. weights while running in place and doing sit ups. But, I need better, more effective exercise methods.

I am looking to lose 55 pounds--to weigh 135 lbs. I have set small goals for myself. I just need some tips to stay on track (hence the reason I want a weight loss buddy-they can motivate me and vice versa).

Sorry, this was long, but Hello everyone!

Welcome Courtney. We are about the same height, me 5'8". I got up to 195 and am currently 160, hoping to see 135 or 140 again someday. This site is really helpful so visit often and hang in there. You can do this!

How did I do it? Plain old fashioned exercise. I started walking everywhere and the weight came off on its own over time. Recently I've started to eat healthier and count calories, etc. to budge the last 20 or so off.
