Smile Newbie!

Hi everyone, I've just signed up and I have a rather steep goal of losing 136lbs to get to a healthy BMI before I turn 30 in October this year!

I'd be glad to meet new friends here and to offer support

Is there a function for adding progress photos on this site?

I'm really looking forward to getting to know people!

Lynsey

Welcome to FitDay. What is your time frame?

You can attach pics by clicking "manage attachments" when posting. I usually upload my pics to photobucket and posting the link.

Lynsey, welcome! 136 pounds off in 9-10 months can be done, but you'll have to work it hard! And, it may be that you'd be better off losing a bit more slowly. The weight will peel off quickly at first but unless you do really low cal (been there, done that--not the answer for long-term success, I've discovered) the loses will slow as you get closer to goal.

Please remember that those pounds probably accumulated over a longer period than 9 months and it may be unrealistic to lose them that quickly (not saying you can't, by any means!).

I hope you participate in the forums--I find it very helpful to communicate with others facing your same situation.

If you need any help or advice, just ask.

Regards,
Michael
