I have been heavy all of my life. I had open-heart surgery in January of 2010. I am desperate to lose weight and get my life and health back. I tipped the scale at the doctors office at 403lb. Wow. I know that I have more than forty pounds to lose, but for my mental health and for fear of being over whelmed at seeing "250 lbs to go" every day, I am going to break it up into ten percent of my body weight intervals. I have finally created a group of friends that are supportive and loving and I think with their help, I can keep on track this time. Losing weight is such a mental game for me. I need to keep positive thoughts and keep moving forward. My son is my world and I don't just want to be here for him, I want to participate in life with him. No more waiting to be skinny to do things-I am doing them now!
