I am new! Its not gonna be easy but wish me luck!

My brillant roomy introduced me to this site. 2 years ago I went on Weight watchers and lost 76 pounds. This last summer I quit smoking and gained back 20lb and it has really been hard on me emotionally. My whole life I was a big girl so 2 years ago when I became a petite woman it changed my whole life. I never thought it was possible so I was blown away by it happening. Now knowing it is possible but not able to achieve it is really deppressing me. But I am on here daring to try something new. I just want to loose this 20 pounds I gained and without starting to smoke again. So here I am ready to learn this site and fight to become my better self. Wish me luck!

    Welcome and good luck.

    And if that profile pic is you, you are far from being a 'big' girl ;)

    Good for you!

    And you don't need luck, you need determination and commitment. You have just given up smoking so you KNOW you have those, in comparison this will be easy. :bigsmile:

    You have come to the right place to get the support you need and stay motivated toward your goals . Log your foods and exercise religiously ( even when it's not pretty ) , get some supportive people as friends on this site to cheer for you on the " good" days and encourage you on the " bad" days , and treat each day as an opportunity to set the standard for your personal best . Welcome !
