HI Everyone, I am new to this site as of today. I have a couple of requests that I am hoping someone out there can help me with. First thing is I need an inspirational weight loss story to share with my sister via facebook. I want it to look like I am simply sharing an amazing story...which I know it will be, but I want her to be able to take something away from it and see that she can do anything that she sets her mind to. I want the decision to loose weight to come from her and I want to her to see that it is achievable. She is 65, under 5' and over 300lbs. I am worried for her and I want her to be happy and healthy. If someone has a story that is willing to send me that I can post to fb I would very much appreciate it. :)
The second request is for myself...I am going to 50 in august 2013 and I need to loose at least 80lbs by then if not more.I want to be Fit at Fifty. I am the last of ten kids, I am an emotional eater, like many and have struggled with weight for many, many years. What recently broke me was when my dad passed away suddenly eight years ago just before my 40th birthday. I was doing really well with my weight loss..down 45 lbs....the night before he passed away he told me how proud he was of me in my journey and to keep at. When he passed my emotional binge eating kicked into high gear...I ended up at an Binge Eating Clinic that I fought to get into. After a year there and a lot of tears and stories shared with my therapist one day she tells me that "She can't do all the work for me, that you are just not worth it!!" She bascially told me I wasnt' WORTHY! Can you say BROKEN!!! That is me, and this is where I am today,,,broken and feeling like I can't get myself out of this ravine that my therapist pushed me off the cliff in to.
Is there anyone out there that can help me AND MY SISTER? Thanks for reading my extremely long message...I felt it was important to give you as much information as I could to get started so you knew what I am seeking, what kind of inspirational and success stories that I am looking for. Thanks again.
