Welcome! It can become addictive - checking in to see how everyone's doing! Your goals sound realistic - enjoy the journey - it's full of ups & downs and you'll probably learn a lot along the way.

thanks for the encouragement. i already feel alittle doubtful that i'll be able to reach this goal, but if i do that then it'll never happen. i got to keep positive even if i manage to meet my goal or not

Hey yunalee, you can do it! I know it can feel daunting, and frustrating, but try to take it one day at a time, or even one moment at a time. This battle is won and new (good) habits are formed with every positive choice you make - every time you eat something good or better for you than you used to, and every time you move around and exercise. You can and you will do it. Even if you're not sure, fake it until you are.

+1 ^^ Excellent statement!
Welcome and you have a do-able goal, I've been using Fitday for a couple of years now (took me a year to figure out there was a forum) and I've lost over 50lbs during that time and have kept it off with the help of Fitday.

Start weight:
212 3/09
Today's weight:
161 2/11

So Ya, you can duit!

Thanks Mike!
I'll remind my self sometimes by picking up a 50lb dumbell and try to imagine that much additional weight hanging off my body.
It really puts it in perspective of how far I've gone with my lifestyle change and how its here to stay
