Hi everybody! Today is my first day

My name is Izabela, I'm 21 years old and currently I weigh 132kg.

I've always been overweight and when I was little I was forced to make several types of diets. None of them worked and I always ended up gaining weight all over again. I never gave much attention to my health and I always had the bad habit of eating everything and exaggerate in quantity.
What made ​​me have the urge to start losing weight, was the fact that everyone around me were moving on with their lives while I stayed behind getting fatter every day more and more.

I'm tired of waiting for a miracle to happen and I magically lose all the weight I need to lose. It's time to take the reins of my life and become a happier and healthier person!

I would be very excited if I made new friends who are going through or who have gone through similar paths to my.
I hope you all have a great day! Let's make today ridiculously healthy!:smile:

    Welcome Izabela...Feel free to add me:)
  • Thanks everybody for the support!
  • Welcome and you CAN do it!
    The first 2-3 days are the doubter days...the 'is this working?' , 'oh man I'm hungry'.
    Just remember this one little piece of advice...you may be hungrier for the moment but you are training your body to eat differently, healthier and not gain weight...it will cry and grumble and beg for food but don't give in!

    Because...that 4th day rolls around and you'll notice the weight start dripping off, just takes a couple days to start the ball rolling.
    When in doubt, come on to this website, read or ask questions and we can help you through it.

    Add friends to your page as a way of gaining support from others, if you feel like consuming a pizza or donut then just post that you need encouragement not to...super fun and easy way to lose weight without gross diet foods.

    Good luck!
