I'm new here too! I've recently moved into a new apartment, and I'd really like to get into the habit of good diet and exercise... which is hard for me with my busy schedule. My boyfriend is super supportive, and would like to lose a few pounds too, but he's way less focused and much more lazy than I am. I'm sure he'll enjoy eating healthy with me though. Nice to meet everyone!

Just watch the sauces and cheese on the grill and you should do okay. Watch your portions though!! If you don't already, throw some of those veggies on the grill and enjoy!!

New here ... friend at work was losing weight, so I decided to try this too, and now she picks on ME about being the strict one.

I set my goal kind of high, because I want to make sure I can reach it. Then I will try for the rest. That's just tightening up in comparison! LOL

I have some real-life accountability partners ... my supervisor is dieting also, and 2 other work friends love to work out. So I have real-life help and virtual help.

My husband loves to cook, especially grilling, and that'll be my biggest hurdle because I love to eat what he makes. He'll have to work on healthy stuff.

I hear ya! I started yesterday. What a great find! It seems like you won't be on this journey alone anymore! Keep posting and all kinds of people will offer support and caring! There are some great tools on the pages as well. Even an excercise program I found set up for you according to the items you check off having or not--so no money involved! And walking is a great way to begin cardio too. We can all do this together. Well maybe not today...we are having our Thanksgiving celebration in Canada and ours is today...better stock up on the veggies and only have a wee taste of that yummy gravy!

I am right there with all of you. Just joined yesterday and I have no real support except my kids. Hubby is not too keen on my weight loss because I am cutting his calories too!! Hehehe he needs to lose a few also. Try getting your whole family on board, even if they don't live with you, if they live nearby meet up and go for a walk!! Parks and sidewalks are free so that helps my budget. Canned goods also make nice hand weights in a pinch. I am all about motivation, so you keep posting and I will keep replying!! GO TEAM!!!

I just started on here a couple days ago...Actually I was on here months ago but wasn't putting in the required effort. I have received my kick in the butt and I am finally ready to lose those stubborn lbs. I am also going it alone and hope to find some extra motivation on this site...Everyone seems so friendly and helpful here!

Welcome! I'm new also, but so far it seems like a very supportive and informative place to be. Make small changes and it will be easier to maintain. Have a great day!

As I said...I am new here and i want to lose weight. This site was recommended from another chat hub. I hear there are people here losing weight and I am alone in my challenge and I have no one to help me along. I am on a fixed income so I cannot afford things like WeightWatchers and Nutrisystem(or a gym for that matter!)
