Talking New Kid On The Block

Hi Everyone! I'm misfitpixie and I am new to fitday, but am already in love with this site!! The weight struggle has not been a lifelong battle for me, just in the last 10 years. I always fluctuated between 135-145, but that was as high as the scale ever got. Then I was introduced to speed and got all sucked up. I was disgusting. Once I got cleaned up, I started gaining weight. 10 years later, I tipped the scale at 191, which was just 7 weeks ago. I finally got fed up with being miserable with myself and decided to do something about it. I'm now 19 LBS down and counting!

I love hearing all of your success stories, ideas and most of all...encouragement of one another! I feel very fortunate to be part of this forum and can't wait to build relationships with you all!

Hi misfitpixie
Well done on your progress so far! I'm new here and I noticed your post as I have a very similar story to you. (lost a LOT of weight on coke, cleaned up and starting putting on weight very quickly etc.) I managed to lose some of it but am now stuck in a cycle of yoyo-ing between 130-140lbs. Would love to talk more with you and share some motivation

While we'd love for both of you to keep posting in the forums, you can use the "private message" feature to get in touch with one another. Just wanted you to know
