Hi everyone!
Hi, My name is Candice and I decided that I was going to lose weight. I'm 20 years old and unfortunately I have always struggled with being over weight. I'm 5'8 and weight about 280 pounds. I'm hoping to lose a total of 120 pounds and then I will be down to my goal weight of 160. I have always attempted to lose the weight but never follow through with any of my diets. Its just so hard for me because Ii know I'm just lazy and just don't feel like doing it most of the time. I am trying to change all of that. I don't want to make any excuses for why I am so over weight I just want to fix the damage that I've done so that I can be happy and have more confidence. But thank you for reading I need all the encouragement I can get and good luck to all of you who are trying to lose weight as well.

Candice, welcome to FitDay and the forums--glad to have you here!

You've come to the right place to lose that extra weight and get healthy.

There are a couple of 100+ pounds to lose threads you might be interested in joining, as well as some challanges and motivational threads. So spend some time browsing the subforums.

If you have any questions about the site or making a fitness plan, don't hesitate to ask.


PS With all due respect, and I know it's pretty, but some folks may find that green font color is very difficult to read (such as myself).

You can do it! One day at a time! I'm about your same height and weight, but I'm 58 years old. I've packed on the weight over the past 20 years, and vow to turn the clock back.

Well i know that we both can lose this weight, but im only 20 so I really shouldnt have let it get this far:( Thank you for the encouragement i need it :) and good luck to you too!

Candice, good to see you back. 20 is the PERFECT are to nip this problem in the bud. I was well over 100 lbs overweight in HS and lost it all when I was about your age. Of course, gained it all back, but I know you'll be smarter than I was! :)

So don't despair, this is a problem that can be resolved and fairly quickly, if you put your mind and body into it. So go get 'em! :D


PS My old eyes thank you for changing to the plain, boring old black font color. :)
