Welcome newbie!!! Glad you are here and it sounds like you are starting with a great attitude - to start slow - I found that that really worked for me. I started by walking a few days a week with a friend - then started drinking more water - then adding more veggies - then tracking food. After several months I have added in strength training. I have a long way to go, but am making progress - and you can too!! And remember - even losing 10% of body weight has huge health benefits. One thing I do that really helps me - I don't think about the big goal - I'm always thinking about the next 10 lbs - and I ALWAYS reward myself for all progress. I used to reward myself for things with food - so i did a lot of thinking and came up with some ideas for how to reward myself with other things... it really helps to be nice to me!! Good luck - and I look forward to hearing about your progress!

When I read your post, it was like I was reading something I had written myself. So many similarities it was scary! This is a great website. I've been on since January, and I have lost 45 pounds so far. Its all about learning control, which has been hard for me. Trust me, you can do this. If I can do it, anyone can. Good luck and keep us all posted on your progress.

Hi Team! I joined this site this week after months of following SlimKatie's blog, www.runsforcookies.com - after reading her story and scanning a few of yours, I feel that I am in the right place. I have never dieted or exercised in my life... I've always had a distorted reality of myself and never really realized how big I am until recently. A couple side-view pictures and a couple uncomfortable experiences have brought me to Earth...

I'm 5'9" and 360lbs, I remember in high school saying "if I ever get past 200lbs, shoot me." well, being taller, I could carry my excess weight pretty well, but there's no space to really tuck in and hide 360lbs. It's embarrassing having to ask for a table when you can't fit into a booth and having people next to you move down when you're all tucked into theatre seats... I've caught a couple not so flattering glances into a computer monitor or window when I'm "resting comfortably" and I do not like what I see. So here I am!

I'm going to try to start out slow and not overwhelm myself. I know I won't see results overnight, but I also know I won't see any results AT ALL by continuing to ignore it. I love food, I am an over-eater, and it's gotten worse now that I am living on my own. Before, I could cook for roommates and family who I was living with and it would get gobbled up, cooking for myself easily tempts me into eating a 2nd and 3rd helping. I also don't enjoy cooking just for 1 and find myself hitting up the drive-thrus and ordering out for that and convenience.

I look forward to reading the message boards, participating in goals, and I am excited to relate easily, provide and receive support from people with my same "obstacles" and begin my journey.

Feel free to add me as a friend, but be ready to answer some questions about how the site works, I am slowly exploring each tab and link and trying to remember how to get back to sections I like :) I just joined this team after reading a success story that said such great things about you all, and I joined 300lbs +.

Some other random facts: I live in Minnesota, I'm a 9-1-1 dispatcher, I live alone in an apartment with my overweight cat (why do they make looking fat and fluffy so good?), and I'm turning 30 next month!
