100 lbs to lose

My name is Dusti and Ive got over 100 lbs to lose. I am currently on day 11 of my journey and could use any motivation, tips, friends, etc that anyone wants to throw my way! I don't really have any major support or anyone to motivate me. All my friends are pretty thin and the ones that aren't are content with their current size. I have been counting calories and going to the gym and not really noticing any major results. I can tell a difference in my breathing and stamina but weight wise, nothing. Any tips or suggestions to kick the weight loss up a notch? Thanks!

    Hi! It says you have lost 10 pounds...that is great!! What helped me was choosing friends that were committed to MFP, eating at a modest calorie deficit, having things in common with my friends and them having open diaries ( I think having an open diary helped keep me accountable, and I was able to get better advice)
    Make sure you are logging and weighing everything on a food scale, do not deprive yourself. Try to fit treats into your day so you don't make poor decisions. Drink lots of water. Get cardio and weight training in (make sure you do something you enjoy) Dont worry too much about how fast it is happening. It will happen. Good luck

    I have about 200+ to lose and so far for my third day in I have seen a wonderful out pouring of help and advice. Support is one I struggle with too everyone else in my family are healthy weight so nothing for them to do, add in two nephews under ten who haven't met a sweet they don't like and it gets worse. So I joined here to get help and to help others. Feel free to add me to your friends and we can help motivate each other. Tip for the day eat slower and don't get on the scale everyday.

    MFP has been key to continued weight loss for me. Ton's of support also available. Takes some perseverance...but well worth it. Things actually become easier the more time that goes by...I'm down to the last 15-30 lbs I need to lose. Good luck...
