New here

mid_penJuly 24, 2006

Hello. I'm new to the site and I wanted to introduce myself. I have about 100 pounds to lose. I've gained and lost so much over the past years that I've about given up. But I hope someone here will be a weightloss buddy and help me get back the motivation I need to get healthy again. Is there anyone here who has that much to lose and would like to have a buddy and be one?

Hi Mid Pen,
Welcome. Where in CA are you? What program if any are you planning to use? You can find me on the WW threads but I use a very modified plan that works for me instead of points or CORE. I'm a yo-yo dieter also. I tend to gain whenever I have to caregive or stay home a lot. Don't have as much as you to lose but I did lose 70 lbs. years ago and kept most of it off for periods of time.

Hi mid_pen --

I'm not really new. I've been lurking a long time. But given my recent success, I thought I'd come out of the closet so to speak and announce that I've lost 3 1/2 pounds over the last 10 days on a "raw food" diet.

I also have 100 pounds to lose or after my initial 3 1/2 pound loss, I only have 97 more to go!

Don't think we need to be on the same diet. I realize that most people will think the "raw food" diet is a little far out. But I'd be glad to post here weekly about how my diet is going and would be interested to see how you are doing. I know what it's like to have so much weight to lose and to feel very very unmotivated about counting calories, etc.

Let me know how you're doing.
Take care.

Thank you. I'd love to be able to post here about pounds lost. And I agree, the method isn't as important as the weight loss. I'll be checking in after the weekend, as I'm going on vacation. Heaven knows how much I'll have gained by then!
