So.....here's a bit about me.
In my 20's I was up and down the scale from 180-220. Now I find myself over the 300 pound mark and I'm terrified. I want to live a long and happy life. Like most people, I am a good person who works hard at her career. I want marriage and children. I know I need to be healthy to raise a healthy family. but it is a daily struggle and true battle.
It's more than weight; it is education. Body physiology education! Pancreatic reactions to sugar! Wow that was fascinating to learn about and a bit shocking when I think back to all the sugar I unknowingly put in my body. Wow, no wonder! A friend of mine made it look so easy over this past year.....slow and steady determination she said. So, this is the beginning of a change overall for me. I wake up everyday facing myself, not ignoring it, even if the scale goes up. I first started on this site at 314 pounds. Then I got on the scale after the holidays and was up to 334 pounds. I had not used the site, had not monitor my eating habits nor calories burned. I am now committed to myself. Watch over and caring for my body like a worried mother over a sick child.
I'm so motivated by the other's on this site as well. It's good to be part of a community of like minds and like goals. It's my daily retreat and honest encouragement.
Good Luck to us all!!!
