Hi all new people.
The best thing about this is tracking, support and finding idea's for food. You are accountable and need to want to lose weight for this to work.
One step at a time, one day at a time. Don't look back, don't forget why you want to do this and don't beat yourself up when you have a bad day.

Good luck to those that are new.

Hi tamara and welcome to the team, you can do it if you put your mind to it just remember to take it one day at a time. Let us know if you need anything.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Hi I'm Amy and I'm 36 and a busy mom working full time. I have an office job where I sit most of my day. Although I've been struggling with my weight for the better part of 12 years I finally reached a point in my life where I felt really unhealthy and like my weight was holding me back. My goal is to be healthy and more active and to feel better about living in my own skin! I have lost about 15 pounds in the last few months but now I seem to be at a stand still and know I need more support and help.

Tamara I can really relate to your post also. Just today I was walking on the trail and it was a very popular morning to walk and pretty busy. I just though about how nice it would be not to be the huge girl on the trail. Thoughts like that usually hit me in the grocery store because I'm feeling like people are judging what's in my cart. But I do think we all can lose the weight and reading about other people's journeys have been very motivational for me.

I know exactly what you're talking about! I believe that together we can all do this. We just need to really be here for each other when it comes to support and encouragement.

I can def relate to that not wanting to be the biggest woman in the room feeling. I have lost 115 pounds and I still have to deal with that almost all the time, lol. I have 155 left to lose to get to my goal of 130 pounds. I will be here for support bc we have about the same we are wanting to lose, so just contact me if you are needing support or are having a moment of weakness 👍

Hi! I'm Tamara. I am here to try to lose weight an get healthier. I have been trying this on my own for quite a while, but I think what I need this time is support from a community of people who are at the same place as me or have recently been where I am. My weight loss goal is to lose over 150 lbs. I want to be more comfortable with who I am without having the constant worry of being the biggest woman in the room. I'm ready for a change. Here we go!
