You are making progress in the right direction. I am so glad for you. You are also in the right place for it to happen. Make friends with those on the site and if you need someone to chat with do it.
I can say that this is my second or third time around and I am determined to get the 25ish puonds off that I need to get off. It can get to be a little bit overwhelming but I am determined. If you need a friend I am here as a sounding board if you like. We can do this together. :)

on losing those 50 lbs. You're on the right track, and I'm delighted that you've decided to join us, so we could help you with the rest of your journey.
You're smart, too, as you gave us such a big goal of what you wanted to lose, but backed it up with not being able to get your head around it, so you broke it down into a more manageable number and time frame. That's the way to do this lifestyle change. Just take baby steps and we're walking right there beside you. If you need anything, just HOLLER and somebody will give you a hand up!

It is much easier, if you set small goals. don't try to look at the big picture, give yourself non food presents when you reach a goal. A new lotion, piece of jewelry, a scarf, or something you want, not what u need.

Good luck! You must be doing something right to have lost 50 lbs. so far. Glad it is working for you.

I joined in 2009, but never really used the site. (Only used it to track food.) I have been using the site faithfully for about two weeks or so and it seems to be helping. I am hoping to lose 170 pounds total. I have lost 50 so far. I am not sure I can even visualize what that looks like for me, so for now, my goal is another 25 by late Feb.
Still trying to wrap my head around the idea that I can do this on my own. So far so good.
