Welcome! Sorry to hear you were in an accident. Ouch! Glad you decided to join us. It takes a few weeks to really get use to the changes you're making but you don't need to be hungry all the time. That might make you quit, which is not the point. Don't push yourself too hard. Start slow and work up to it.

Check out the "Eat up, slim down challenge" under the "Community" tab above, then "Challenge Central." The "Health Cooking" challenge is another good one that helps you make low-cal things you can fill up on without going over your calorie limit (if you're able to cook). If you can't cook, you might want to check out some nutrition articles to help you find the best prepared food to buy. Good luck.

emoticon MJ I was 210 and got down to 170 was in a car accident and shot back up to 190, so I know how an accident can effect you. That it slow, try exercises, if you can do them great, if they hurt try something new. Remember there is a difference between discomfort from doing things your body isn't use to and hurting something that is mending. Don't be afraid to ask your Dr if there is anything you should stay away from. If you hurt your wrist, you might find that any thing where you put your weight on your hands is out. My Dr told me NO fried foods. I found a lot of fried foods can be coated like you would for frying then baked. My grandchildren love oven fried chicken with oven fried fries.

MJ,

That is too funny!!! emoticon I would say that you're off to a GREAT start! I'm more delighted to read that you're here for the long haul!!! That's very important, to know yourself what you're able and unable to do. I look forward to being your friend, and helping you in any way that I can.

When I read that you had been in a car accident, deju hit me BIG TIME! I was in a car accident on 07 Sep 2012 and spent 6 months in the hospital, but you know what? I would go through all of it again, in a heart beat. I've made so many friends here and my ENTIRE LIFE has changed for the better. The accident was such a blessing from God!!!

Take care and be blessed,

- Nancy Jean -

Hello Everyone,

I am brand new here and oh so motivated! I was hurt in a car accident several weeks ago and have to wear temporary braces on my wrists. I have gained even more weight and decided to come on here and follow the plan. Well, needless to say, I've been very hungry! Oh and by the way, I've totally given up fried foods. Well, a funny thing happened! The fourth night I was dreaming that I was biting into a crunchy fried chicken leg, and I woke up biting on the velcro tab of my wrist brace! LOL! It was so funny that I didn't even mind that there was four more hours until breakfast! What a start, but I'm here for the long haul. Best Wishes to everyone,
MJ
