Hello! I had a friend introduce me to this site, and so far I'm loving it! I am desperately trying to lose 60lbs and get back to a healthy weight. I try to love my body the best i can, but that can be difficult at my current situation. Please, all the support that can be thrown my way is needed.

    Welcome, and best to you!! Remember the old Taoist saying when you dislike the way you look....It is not the vessel that is useful, but the space within....

    Hi, and welcome to THE best site on the web! :love:
    Between the easy to use food counter (which by the way is SUCH an eye opener!) and all the wonderfully supportive members, you WILL be able to lose the weight that you want to, AND, it'll "almost" be easy doing it!
    I recommend logging ALL your foods BEFORE you have them, rather than later, as it tends to lead to better food choices. (not to mention you'll know if you've got enough numbers left to have a night time snack, like I ALWAYS try to do!) Some people also like to weigh and measure some things, such as meats, rather than just estimating and possibly being WAY off!
    Also, drink lots of water, that seems to help alot too. :drinker:

    Hi and welcome!
    I know exactly what you mean by trying to love your body no matter what...and even though it is true that you should, it can be hard sometimes. Just remember that you deserve to be healthy and happy! Everytime I don't feel like exercising or everytime I almost eat that bowl of ice cream, I tell myself I am worth taking care of! Try and tell yourself that everday!

    Today is my first day on this site and already, I have realized how badly I eat. I am definitely going to keep up with the food diary. I'm tired of being the "fat" friend. :tongue:

    Good for you! That's all I needed too! When I came here, I found out right away that all I needed was to see my numbers and "work with them", and have a determined attitude. And as you'll see by my profile pics, MFP REALLY, REALLY works! Stick with it, and it will work for you TOO! :smile:
