It's Time To Introduce Myself

Postby shortfynesse » July 6th, 2006, 4:06 pm

Hello All,

My name is Tammy and I'm from Ohio. I'm 25 yrs old. 5'0 and weight is about 200 (too scared to step on scale) I've been reading your posts for over a week now and your words of encouragement to each other and pictures have really been inspiring. I'm finally ready to make a commitment to weight loss. I just recently moved and pulled out a dress I've had since I was 12. It was a size 14. I have been a size 14/16 for over 13 years now and it's time for a change.

I will be ordering my first Medifast package within the next week and by reading your posts and seeing your pictures, I can't wait to get started. I hope that I can continue to use you as support and hopefully be an inspiration to someone else some day. Thank you so much!

Hey Tammy _ Welcome!! I am orginally from Ohio and have lived in Hawaii for about 16 years.

But it happend :-P This forum has been a life line for me, so many wonderful people full of great advice. Best of luck to you in taking the steps you need to get to your goal.

Welcome shortfynesse :lol: This is Tlo (your personal friend). I know that we will be able to go on this journey together.
To all of you who are reading this, myself and shortfynesse know each other quite well and actually we use to work together. We both have discussed how we have battled our weight for years, and after I saw two of my family members have amazing success with Medifast I decided to try it, and also let shortfynesse in on the secret. :lol:
So we are going to go on this journey together, and both of us are new to this, and we have each other to lean on when things get hard.
So WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME, SHORTFYNESSE!!! I can't wait till we get skinny, so can go for a ride in my new car :mrgreen:

Heyyy Tlo!!!!! Yes Tlo and I are good friends. I belive this weight loss journey will be a lot easier knowing someone is cheering you on. I can't wait to ride in the new Jag! After hearing about her family member's success I was ready to try it for myself. I had never heard of a weight loss story first hand, just on TV and that is what sold it for me.

Thank you all for your warm welcome. I can't wait to go on this journey with all of you.

Get that Jag warmed up. Before you know it you'll be out and about in it. :D You two will be looooookin' good riding in that car!!! It will be easier for each of you to have the other. You will motivate each other and keep each of you on track. Just be very very compliant. If it's not in the Quick Start Booklet don't put it in your mouth. You want to part with those pounds in the fastest and safest manner. Thats exactly the way to do it. Oh, and drink all that water!!! I'm going watch the pounds coming off!!!

You will find this place to be full of the best people and support you could ever ask for. This is a great place to share your successes and slip-ups because all are here to cheer you on and even dust you off. You will find so many success stories - just take a look at the studio - these pictures tell the whole story.

Look forward to seeing your progress!!
