Hi, my name is Angela im a 26 year old female living in Arizona in the US. I am so thankful for all the wonderful resources, advice, forums, recipes and encouragement this website has to offer. I have been struggling with the same 30-40lbs since forever, looking to meet others who need support that want to lose close to the same amount or in same situation. Since I became a member of Fatsecret I decided to change my eating habits and have been following a "diet" similar to the weight watchers program.

Thank you for reading my introduction. Please feel free to drop me a line. Very Happy

Hi Angela; I'm Susan, a grandma living in south florida. I have been on fat secret for some time. Last year I lost and gained back the same 15 pounds on south beach. After deciding to give up all dieting, I changed my mind and joined weight watchers 3 weeks ago. I find the diet easier to follow than I ever did in the past and so far (it is only the beginning) it's working! I find the meetings which I pay for in advance, keep me grounded. Take it slowly-good luck. I am also looking at 20=30 pounds.

In order to succeed at weight loss I must be:
exert will-power
become the person I WANT to be, not the overweight person that I am

I started folling weight watchers 3 weeks ago too! good luck with your goals! glad it is working for you! I dont attend meetings, but I know my points and have been keeping my diet within that amount. I have also increased my workouts to be tougher. Finding the time and energy has been a challenge while working full time and finshing my bachelors degree. I'll be looking forward to dedicating more time to my workouts when I get my first summer break in over 6 years! Glad to meet you and best of luck to you in your journey to a healthier you! Smile

I need help with dieting
Probably lowering your calories by at least 500 a day and eating clean is your best bet.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
