I can understand how making healthy choices can be undermined by friends and even certain family members. It's hard to be around food enablers, and people who have a hard time embracing your new philosophies.

Anyway:
Welcome to the team!!!
This is really a supportive environment, and I hope you will love this team as much as I do!

Thank you all for your warm welcomes! And ClarkA6, thank you for the add! emoticon I've always doubted myself in the past, but I've never had an outlet like sparkpeople before, and this is really awesome. I can really do this.

Welcome to the team! This is definitely an awesome group to be a part of:) I'm like you- feeling kind of alone since my friends don't really get what I'm going through. They've never been where I've been. It can get lonely, but I've gotten lots of support through sparkpeople. I'm 23 like you, so I know exactly what it feels like! I'm going to add you as a friend, and feel free to add me back if you'd like. Good luck!

Hi Patti and emoticon to the team!! You have joined a fabulous team that is very active and ready to support each other as we go along with this journey. Understand the emotional and physical changes one goes through with loosing weight. Done it twice now both times i was overwhelmed with the emotions and lets be honest looked at the past journeys as diets. This time it is all about lifestyle change and being healthy in all aspects of my life.

Check out our RockIt challenge that start July 1st. I joined the last challenge with only a few weeks left but have grown close to my team and look forward to checking in with them everyday.

Always remember emoticon

...in search for some workout/support buddies!

So, here we go: My name is Patti, I'm 23 years old and a graduate from SAIC. I consider myself a very passionate, headstrong person and I'm desperately trying to lose weight. I have well over 100lbs to lose, and I'm ready for this lifestyle change. Despite my weight, I've always been a really active person. I love to dance, even if I look silly doing it. All my friends are on the thin side, and they don't necessarily care about what I'm doing. It doesn't bother me that much...ah hell...it does bother me a lot but I try to not let it get me down. I was fun and cool when I was just, "BBW Patti...so strong-minded and beauti--uh--smart and strong!" Now that I'm trying to lose this weight, I don't exist to them. It really, really, sucks. But I'm better off without them, right? I know that I'm doing this for myself and I don't need approval from anyone. But sometimes I forget and the hurt sinks in.

I would love to be able to connect with people who understand the physical and emotional changes I am going through, and not just through the screen. It sucks not being able to openly talk about my struggles with anyone really, and I'm hoping that someone out here on this wonderful website will want to connect with me. Please message or add me if you're also in search for someone to connect with.

Thanks ya'll!
-Patti
