New crazy woman on board for mega weight loss
_Indigo_ posted:
I'm not sure what to do here quite yet but I know that I very much need the weight loss support. I have a very long way to go to reach my weight goal and it's going to take me some time. I get frustrated sometimes thinking about how long it will take.

I started out at somewhere over 350lb on a 5'4" body. Now I'm at 326.6.

I'm in my mid-30's and my weight is keeping me from doing many things I want to do. I'm ready to start losing and living again.

Hello _Indigo_ and thanks for joining us!

Congratulations on your weight loss so far. You're right about how the weight can keep you from doing the things you'd like to.

I used to get frustrated by how long the weight loss was taking, then I remembered how long it took me to put it all on. I'm aiming for 2lbs a month, and after 18 months, I'm pretty much on target with 35lbs lost so far.

You may want check our our Newcomer Tips . Also, as I was telling new member cltabor, this community gets quiet at times, so be patient waiting for replies. If you want quicker responses, you may want to try the Diet Club: 50-100lbs Community .

Cheering you on,

Pounds off since December 2009= 30lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.
