Hi. New to the group... new to any group... never really done the online group thing. I would like to lose somewhere between 75 and 100 lbs. but honestly I'd be thrilled just to have a weight that begins with a 1. 

I've made some positive strides so far this year and I think having a support team of others who have similar goals is a great idea. My goals are taking it one day at a time, doing the best I can and not giving up when there are set-backs. 

We can do this! Here's to a great 2012!

Dione I feel the same way! This year is my year to make it all happen. I feel different going into it this time. I need to lose 160lbs to be considered healthy but like Laura said, I'd be happy weighing anything that begins with a 1!!! We can do this! I can't wait to hear about your progress!

Hi. My name is LaToya and I am in need of support because I am finally ready to get rid of all of this extra weight. I have been dealing with my weight for a very long time now and I am sick and tired. I am a mother of three boys and I have a hard time keeping up with them. My husband says he supports me and for the most part he does but not really how I need him to. I can certainly identify with you all, this is my year. I can feel it. We can do this ladies! I am here for support and to offer support. I need to lose 150lbs. This calls for some serious prayer!

Hi Ladies,
  I'm so glad to finally find a weight loss online support site that seems genuine and not phony or overbearing.  I've just joined and am also looking for some friends to support me on this looong journey!  I weighed this morning and at an all-time high of 260.  My ultimate goal is 140, but honestly I'd be tickled pink to hit 180 again and be able to fit into NORMAL clothes again - no more scouring the racks for the limited plus-size selection!
  I'm looking forward to following all of your progress and hope that you'll chip in and help me out too.  I have a really good feeling about 2012 - I think it's going to be the year of success!  Good luck ladies!
~ Amanda

Hi everyone!

I've posted a new thread as a new member, but glad to see there are others like me who are looking for people to go through the journey with. I am needing to lose 100 pounds to be in my healthy range.

I hope to keep talking with everyone! Good luck as everyone moves forward!

Well good evening everybody.  It is always good to know that there are others out there that struggle with the same issues as you you yourself.  I myself (per Dr) need to lose a little over a 100 lbs.  But I guess I would say my first goal would be to get that nasty 2 off the scale,  I am to much of an emotional eater and I am needing to learn more control over my emotions then just stuffing them down with food.  I am certainly hoping that 2012 is a better year in this area of my life than the past years.  The scales can't continue to go up.  I must learn to take control over my entire life and not let it control me.  Here is to all of us!

I don't know if any of you are still out there, but I would love to have some online buddies for this long term commitment I want to make.  I am in the exact same boat as with all of you.  I have never been my ideal weight, except for maybe when I was 12.  So, I too, would be happy with anything less than 200.  And, more importantly, I want to keep it off this time!
I'm not sure how to add friends, or how that works.  Today is my first day.

I know I am late to the post, but will give this a shot. I recently started my journey of weightloss and am not  really open with friends as I have always been ashamed of my weight. I would elike to make some friends that understand was it is to be the self consciousone that always makes jokes about her own weight. I need to loose total about 110 lbs.

Woo hoo this group is for me. I want to lose 110 or 120 lb. Really more then that but I just be happy to make it to the 100Lb lost mark. I am at 276 right now. So close kissing 300 and I am not going to do it. I am not going that high. I do not want to be this high. I can't believe I am this high in weight.  If I can make it to 176 I be doing great, even better at 166. As long as I get to the 1s. I will be excited when I see 199 or less, but really happy to 166. I even look pretty good at that weight.  Losing at all would be a + I also do a blog on here. I found blogging helps because this is just not my first rodeo.
