Newbie today i start my diet to loose 60lbs

I'm a 22 year old who's just tired of feeling unatractive. I 've lost the weight once but after going threw depression i've gained it back. I've gotten a diet and a good routine that i'm willing to share but im also looking for a friend to chat with and get tips and give each other motivation.

Good luck to everyone who is working to getting healthy and happy

Hey Stephanie,

I'm new and also have about 60 to lose. I have already lost 35, and I'm so excited about that, but it has definitely slowed down since I started. I think I have hit the plateau.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and welcome. I am looking for a friend on here, and someone to keep my lazy butt motivated! I don't know about you, but I know I don't have much of a support system in my life, so anything helps.

Good luck, I know you'll do great!

I also went to curves and after a while get gets boring, plus mostly everyone there was old. I am going to purchase the wii fit plus and see what that does for me. I am not big into exercise so I have to make it fun. LOL Best of luck to you!;)

i'm so excited, we've got a whole little group going on now!
i've never been to Curves but there is one close to my apartment. i always have a hard time working out in places because of my schedule. i work full time, go to school part time and i have a daughter that is always with me. no where around here has a daycare with their gym. i'm pretty much limited to things i can do with her or things i can do at home. i just bought the Dancing with the Stars cardio dance dvd, i'm pretty excited about it. i also get the fit channel on my satellite dish so i've been watching that alot.

stephanie- i work with a girl who has the wii fit and she LOVES it. she keeps buying all these different accessories for it, she said it keeps her motivated pretty well. i'm definitely trying to keep my good work up but its getting ridiculous. but instead of weighing myself, i started measuring again, which has helped me stay focused. i never really believe that muscle weighs more than fat blah blah blah, but even though i haven't lost a pound in a month, i've lost about 7 inches so thats awesome to know.
i know what you mean about not thinking you're that big. i always just considered myself a curvy girl, not ''obese'' ya know. i'm 5' 8'' and i was blessed with a pretty large chest so even though i weighed too much, i don't think it showed as much because of my frame. i don't know, i could just be making excuses lol.

sunni4lyf- i know exactly what you talking about being overweight since 4 or 5! i never knew i was ''the little chubby cute kid'' until my mom told be a couple years ago. whenever i saw pictures, i just thought i was healthy looking, not chubby! i couldn't believe it! but of course, thats my support system right there lol. i will say i definitely didn't feel cute before losing the 35lbs but i'm starting to feel a little better, not where i would like, but better and for me thats a start!

babs7119- i'm the same way with exercise, it has to be fun or i won't do it at all! i'm looking forward to my dancing with the stars workout today, i'll let you know. i don't know if you like to dance or anything like that, but i've noticed those are the workouts i do best with. although, if i had my way, cardio would be at a dance club, with cute guys, and drinks lol

Hope everyone has a wonderful day, i'm going to spend the day with my family and listen to them pick apart what i'm eating and why i'm not eating more and blah blah blah, yeah not looking forward to it!

A fresh start!
I am new to this site. I am hoping to lose 40-45 pounds! I have been struggling for some time but realize its time to be happy with myself again. I look forward to hearing and sharing stories. I have the Wii and it is great and it does work!

I am also new to this site! I have about 65lbs to lose I am having a real hard time getting myself motivated I lost a real close friend this last year and have gained about 20 lbs been a real tough year. I am a lifetime member of Weigh Watchers but leave home for the winter and have moved to a small town where meeting are not available. I just need someone to help me feel like I am not in this by myself. I do have the literature from WW so at least I can kind of follow it to some extent. Just need an online BUDDY
