I always thought that J.K. Rowling made quite a point with Fluffy, the three-headed dog from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Getting all three of those heads under control at once must have been quite a task, but if you didn't, if you were only in control of one or two of them, watch out. That was asking for trouble.

Three Headed Dog is a community focused on creating better lives through healthy food, healthy activity and healthy thoughts. That's the three headed dog: Food. Fitness. Feelings.

This community is a place to find and share ideas, motivation, success and opportunities for improvement. You're welcome to post anything related to this comm's interest at any time, or you're welcome to hang back and look for motivation and ideas as it suits you. My hope is that this will be a positive community that will help you achieve your fitness goals, whatever they may be.

One of the great things about a gathering of like minds is the ability to share and motivate one another. We're all from different walks of life and have different challenges and struggles and what works for one may not work for another. Please choose your words with care here. There is a line between being constructive and being damaging, and I'd ask you to err on the side of kindness in our discussions. Kicking a member's ass when they've specifically asked for it? Fine. Kicking a member's ass for any other reason? Will likely get you banned.

The community is locked, and membership is moderated. As obnoxious as this sounds, if you would like to join this comm and are not on the flist of one of the mods, please have either have a current member of the comm vouch for you (via the intro post) and/or send a PM to one of the mods. If you have any questions, please Page A Mod, or send a PM to hermette.

Hi, my name's Janine (or J9 if you're feeling lazy). *waves nervous like*

I live in New Zealand, but lived in London for 2.5 years and I love it there. Am very envious of anyone/everyone who gets to hang out in London. I'm very laidback, open and very easy going.

I am currently 108kg. I have no idea what that is in pounds. (238 pounds apparently. Yay for Google!) I would like to get down to 176 pounds (80kg). I also found out about 2 weeks ago that I am pregnant and have been told to (ideally) not put on any weight during my pregnancy (and it would be good for me to lose some). So that's my aim, stay the same or lose. But also I need to vary my diet and exercise more.

My diet is normally pretty good, as I am gluten, wheat, dairy and egg intolerant - but I am not avoiding any of these foods at the moment due to the pregnancy.

I have also already lost 10kg (22lbs) since December last year, but before my wedding (when I was living in London) I got down to 98kg (216lbs), so I know I can do it - but any help/advice/motivation/kicks up the behind are all much needed and appreciated.

*jumps in head first*

Good Afternoon! My name is Jaimee and I'm 25 in two months.

I'm an Aussie, and gluten and fat intolerant, so I really CAN'T eat fast food (you think I'd be in a lot better condition from this fact). I am allergic to exercise (and need some serious arse-kicking because of this). I also have an inability to say no to Cheesburgers with extra pickles when I'm very very drunk, so the next morning, I get hangover AND gluten/fat illness.

Last time I checked on the wiifit, I was about 90kg, but I know my pants are getting tighter, so I'm going to put it out there and say 95kg. I was 115kg in February 2009, before I completely cut gluten out of my diet, so I'm doing something right, I think.

I've hit a bit of a wall, and really need some harsh love to push me again. I'm aiming for about 75kg, but I would be more than happy to actually get fitter and be able to play some kind of sport (can't play at this weight due to excess pressure on bad knee).

I'm an avid believer that no one can ever have too much support when it comes to difficult things. I've been working on losing weight for what feels like my entire life. There have been successes and there have been failures (more of the latter), but I'm still chugging away.

Choo, choo.

I'm a twenty-seven year old Californian who works for a construction company (this means sitting down most of the day). On weekends I like to garden, craft, clean, bake (woe), and I've recently taken up yoga and returned to the gym.

I look forward to swapping war stories with the rest of you!

Hello, everyone! I'm Heather, 33 (34 in two months), mother of one, and currently 185 pounds. I'm super stoked about this comm and looking forward to getting to know everybody.

I recently lost about 25-30 pounds, but have been stagnant for almost 18 months. Ridiculous. hermette was a partner in crime of mine during my weight loss, so I know first-hand the benefit of having people holding you accountable. I know she'll be kicking my ass again here soon, and I'm looking forward to "paying it forward" with anybody else here who needs it!

Who else is excited to get started?!?
