Hi everyone,

I am new to diet.com. I decided to try this because I really need help in getting the weight off. I have over 200 lbs. to lose. I am looking forward to getting to know folks here.

Thanks,
Kandy

Welcome to the board!!!! We are here to support and encourage!! When I started in April I had 130 pounds to lose - I now have under 70 pounds so I am happy to have you here and to give you the encouragement and support you need.

Do you have a plan? What about exercise? You may want to check out the group 'Down 100 pounds by June 2009'. Its been pretty quiet but I check it daily and would love to have some participation!

Thanks Ollieseh,
I don't have a diet plan or an exercise plan yet. I am having problems committing right now. I believe this is because in the back of my mind I am telling myself I don't stick to any diet or exercise plan anyway, so why try. Confused I really want to just change the way I eat and my lifestyle in general. I do plan to join a support group.

I do understand how you are feeling - I use to feel the same - I have sooo far to go why bother!!! Have you taken the diet personality quiz on this site? I found it very helpful - in the beginning I did exactly what it said - I changed a few things not everything at once and then kept adding things. It worked and continues to work for me. Instead of looking at how far you have to go focus on changing one thing - drinking more water, going for a short walk, stop drinking pop, anything that you think you can do!! I would never have believed that I could come this far but I have and I know you can toooooo!!! Let me know how I can help! Don't let your fear of failure keep you from the life you want!!

Thank you so much for your support Patti. I really appreciate it. I am encouraged to do better and just take one step at a time. Yes, I have taken the quiz. You are right. It is very helpful.
