Hi! Welcome! I have just started this journey with SP and I already LOVE it. I've battled my weight my entire life and, like you, lost some, gained it back, lost some, gained it back again. I understand your struggles. Focus on loving yourself and giving yourself the best care possible. Only YOU can do that! You have everything you need within you to be successful. Good luck!!!
You're not alone. This is a great place to give and to get support!
Remember to reach out with specific questions as they come up. You truly can do this.

I feel like I live in this world of confusion. I struggle with my weight, it's TOO MUCH, and I strive to lose weight and I've done great in the past and then gain it back because I never truly believe I deserve to lose weight. I make stupid excuses like losing tons of weight will leave too much sagging skin and I can't afford to have it removed so I don't want that to happen... or I've been fat my entire life, I might as well just always be fat!
I'm a mom! I have a beautiful 5 year old daughter and handsome yet crazy 2 year old son. They are my reason to strive to be better, to get healthy, to learn to LOVE me because I want my children to love themselves. I see my daughter wanting to be just like me and it scares me that she might follow in my footsteps and I was teased all through school and I cannot let that happen for her.
I'm here to ask for supportive friends. Because I have tried so many times in the past my "real life" friends don't even believe that I will stick to anything and my husband is overweight as well but says he is happy being large and loves me no matter what so he doesn't help me stay motivated either.
Please be praying for me as I strive to start this journey AGAIN and stick to it for LIFE, because it's a lifestyle change that I want! Thank you!!!
