My name is Samantha Im 23 and from southwest Florida, born and raised. I've been heavy pretty much my entire life, going through high school in a size 13 pants. I thought that was considered overweight, fat, now id give anything to fit into my size 13 pants. lol. I have had medical problems, suffering from thyroid issues as well as kidney issues, and at 22 went through cervical cancer. If I can overcome that I feel like I can finally shake the 100+ lbs of stress, sadness, and excess I've put on my body. I have a wonderful "skinny" husband who loves me for me, and is supportive and eating what I eat. Im looking to connect with people who know what its like, and to hopefully lose the weight together.

What are some of your embarassing/emotional/eye opening reasons for loosing weight?
Im 23, 320lbs. Ive been heavier my whole life, but have really let myself go in the past 3 years after I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I found out in the same day that not only did I have cancer but that my chances for having children in the future are basically 0-8%.I feel that my weight is more emotional than anything, and since I have overcome the emotional aspect of my weight its time for me to deal with the actual weight itself. I just started with my lifestyle change but already feel a lot better, even though Ive lost 5lbs, with 125 more to go.

health concerns- fact I could get diabetes, the detrimental damage that ive done by placing pounds of fat around my vital organs. Already being labled at risk for a heart attack, death at an early age.
The fact that I cannot buy a bra, underwear, pants, shirts, dresses, etc anywhere, other than places that specifically are for large people. I like to be stylish, so I dont have many options.

Going to Universal Studios and not being able to fit on most of the rides, and feeling bad seeing my husband watch the other people ride because he didnt want to leave me alone.
Going out to eat and having strangers stare at me critically, watching every bite I take
Limiting my social life because I dont want to chance that im the only "fat girl"
