Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Tricia and I am 35 years old. I have a lot of weight to lose. About 5 years ago now, I did well on Weight Watchers I lost 63 pounds. I was so proud of myself.

However I have gained all that back, possibly more. I haven't weighed myself yet. I guess I am afraid to. At this time I can't afford to join the actual Weight Watchers program....So I am going to be doing it by counting calories and logging exercise.

I am going to concentrate at this time on hitting 190. It's not the final weight I want to be, but I need to start somewhere.

I am really looking forward to interacting with people, who know what I am going through.

Hey! I'm so glad you joined Smile I am definitely looking for friends on here for motivation Smile You sound exactly like me. I was on a healthy eating and fitness regimen kick a couple of years ago. I went to Curve's and lost a great bit of weight. After really bad relationships, I gained it all back and more. I am finally in a decent relationship with somebody who really loves me and wants to see me succeed in everything I set out to do. He is behind me 1 billion percent in this journey Smile You definitely remind me of myself, though. I remember the days when I was 190...ahh. Loved it lol. I would love to be 190 again. Definitely not my final goal either, but it's a great short-term goal Wink We can do it!

Welcome, both of you. You will like it here. There is room for all kinds of weight loss programs here, and I believe FatSecret really helps us all do this.
Personally, I count calories, don't exercise too much and lose weight like crazy. Feel free to add me as a buddy, should you feel like it.
Do this passionately and dedicated, make it fun and not a struggle and you will get to where you want to be.
Life is good!

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Hi Guy/Gals, I'm 26 tried nearly every diet alive some worked other didn't lost 7 stone on Atkins but put it all back on and more when I went back to normal (healthy) eating and now looking to basically get myself to The Me I Want to Be hence the member name. I've checked out a lot of communities and FatSecret appears to be a great mix of people on different diets but ultimately with the same goal. I salute you and am happy to be joining you all through the journey of weight-loss. TTFN

Hi, my name is Oscar. Trying to figure out this websight seems to be pretty cool, fixing to be 40 in a couple of weeks decided to get healthy back in march, I've lost 29 pounds since then, diets don't work! I've learned its all about changing you eating habits, eat to live, don't live to eat! And plenty of cardio! Good luck to all! I know we can all reach that goal!!!!!
