Like the title says, I'm brand new here. I've been working at losing weight for awhile now, and while I have been losing it slowly, I decided that I needed something with more structure and accountability than just trying to do it on my own, so here I am. I'm stuck at home today sick, so I figure now was as good a time to join as ever.
A little about me, I'm 25 years old, and I've been overweight all my life. I'm at the point where I just want to feel attractive. I'm 5'7" at 178, so I figure that I need to lose about 30 pounds, give or take. I'm hoping that joining this website will give me the tools and motivation to really stick with my weight loss plans and just get it done this time.
I'm joining now, right in the middle of the holiday season because A) I would like to look slimmer by Christmas, B) I don't want to wait for a New Years Resolution to start really losing weight, and C) it feels like everyone around me has been losing weight and I want to join them.
So, that is me. I'm looking forward to getting to know other people around here with similar goals. I'll find a picture of myself to include on my page soon.
