    Getting back on it since slipping up yesterday. Had 3 days of heavy eating now back to it starting now.
  • This is exactly what I need! I'm the heaviest that I have ever been in my life. Although I may not "look" my weight in clothes...each day I see the true me in the mirror and it repulses me. I quit smoking 3 years ago on new years day and have gained 45 pounds since. I've decided its time to shed this weight/body for good. No more excuses. Hopefully, we can encourage each other and hold each other accountable. I begin my journey tomorrow. I have to be realistic....due to my sedentary lifestyle, I'll start with walking and/or riding the recumbent bike and eating breakfast (which I never eat). How will YOU begin your journey???

    I've got about 75 lbs to lose. Just got a Misfit activity tracker for Christmas so I started recording what I eat/calorie intake yesterday. Going to start exercising tomorrow. Looking forward to helping to motivate others and making friends on MFP!
  • I'm starting Monday morning bright and early more intense. Working on the beach body now!

    I'm in too! I started the 24th and am ready to stick with it. I'm going back to the gym tomorrow (2nd time) now. How can we miss with all this support.

    Ummm now that I just ate Wendy's and 3 cookies :\ , I think I'll start now LOL I was going to wait until the new year but I weighed myself and I am the highest I've ever been. Ugh! I lost 45 lbs on here in 2009. I had 2 babies and had lost almost all of my weight again, when my brother committed suicide. After that, I went through a bout of depression and gained alot of weight back. At that point, it was very hard to get back into the healthy lifestyle I had learned before. Soooo now, I have about 45-55 lbs to lose. I am also going to quit smoking. Between high blood pressure and having gestational diabetes in my last pregnancy (blood pressure still high, diabetes gone...for now), I need to do this and quit smoking. I need to be around for my girls as long as possible...

    I am with you. Going to pack gym bag now!
  • I'm starting now as well. Why wait is what I thought. I'd like to buddy up help and get help. Swap ideas that work . I'm trying to reach out because in the past I've always done this on my own. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone to become a better "ME"

    Fitbit Flex for Christmas was my wake-up call. Started today also and need all the help I can get. 45 Min ride on Rail Trail was the start.

    Feel free to add me as well. I decided to start early--maybe just so it wouldn't feel like a run of the mill New Year's resolution.

    Great Decision to start NOW !!!! Add me for encouragement and support.. Anyone can add me as I'm looking to add some new friends after cleaning up my list of non-supporters
  • Hi everyone. I'm starting again. I'm 40 years old, mother of two, farmer's wife and 10 stone 4 pounds. I'm only 4 foot 11, so I'm a good size 14. I'm sick of it! And it does nothing for my health. I hate the way I look.

    I'm unfit, and really want to start riding my horse again. I take anti depressants for anxiety, which doesn't help the weight loss as well. I eat emotionally, especially when I'm stressed, and always find it hard to lose weight, as I seem to self-sabotage... I work from home, live in gorgeous countryside and love reading, seeing all my friends, and looking after my kids. Please add me as a friend (I've no idea how you do this...) as I need all the support I can get!
