Hi everyone!! I am new to this site, I ve discovered this trough an app on my phone last year, but never really got into it until recently. I need to change my eating habits as well as doing more exercise. I joined a gym a few weeks ago, and have been trying to quit smoking. It seems people here are very positive.

Well, you took the first step Huraaayy!!
Welcome! this is a very useful sight, and the app is a very big help. Join a group for specific exercise motivation/challenges.

I'm also trying to change my eating habits. More fruits and veggies and out with sodas and sugary drinks. I'm trying to avoid processed food but i can't give up bread.

I know you can meet your goal because i started a bit higher than your starting weight and i am now 108 and i just bought my first size 0 jeans over the weekend. Yup i went from a size 10 to a zero. (well i have to admit i even wore size 12 at my lowest point)

So good luck! You can do it.

Hi Jenn -

Welcome (from another newbie). I am a somebody that sounds like you bio-wise. I'll let you slide on the Eagles fan thing. Actually, I'm not into football, but I love hockey. We may go to lagerheads, but that's next year Smile

Anyway, family oriented, fun, gardening ALSO joined in August but did nothing much until this week... So, I just wanted to say hi.

I found that people are really supportive so make lots of buddies! Also, I checked out your 'diet'. It looks like good, habit changing and healthy stuff. I'm a 'changing my eating patterns' rather than 'diet' person too.

Have a good time getting involved!

Best - Woowoo

@Argi88, Thank you very much. And congrats on your big weight loss!!! I am a size 9 and I usually have to keep comments to myself bc my friends get upset with me bc they say I dont need to lose weight. I know what makes me feel good and happy. I like this site bc I dont want to be judged. My biggest problem is that I have issues with my body image and I am trying to change it. I also drink a lot.
@woox2 I am also a hockey fan!!! I love the Flyers!! I am a big outdoors person and love being active. I just need to get rid of the people in my life that bring me down, and I know that this is a great first step.

"i usually have to keep comments to myself" -- i know how that is.
But you are right, i knew what size i was before and i didn't feel comfortable until i went back. Even if everyone else did their best to make me feel good where i was.
Now my problem is the flabs. I'm wanting to really exercise to turn those flabs into abs. People get the wrong idea, i know i'm not "fat" but eating healthy has become a lifestyle and honestly it feels good. I feel great!
