So. I am currently new. I have been trying to lose weight since october 2013. I have never really cared about the way I have look and have always been very confident. I am losing weight so I feel better and I just started a relationship and want to look good for him as well. He is very supportive and encourages me when I try to be lazy. He even cooks me dinner that goes along with my diet. I have read every ones post from here to get that boost of I am not the only one trying. It's great to see so many people doing well in their journey.

You've done pretty well so far, judging by your numbers! It's good to have you here. You will definitely find help and encouragement, so I hope you stick around! That's a really good reason to be losing weight.. to feel better! See, you won't get to your goal weight right away, but you can start feeling better almost immediately. Good luck to you!

Sorry shalak, just saw this cause Amber brought it back up top.... WELCOME!

I envy you your cooking boyfriend. If he has time, does he also do windows? I may borrow him

No, but really, it's nice that you have a support person on hand to help you through the rough times. It'll be a bit easier than if you had people running around asking what type of ice cream you bought this week and where the Doritos are, lol.
