Thank you all for your supportive words. I'm really excited to be back, especially with this new mind set going in. One day at a time. One meal at a time. One decision at a time.

I know that feeling.
I was there. That decision to make a lifelong change. It's scary. I was doubtful early on. I even had the "I'll get it sorted out, lose some weight, and then I can be 'normal' again"

I realized that wouldn't work. This is the new normal. And you know what? I'm completely OK with that. I eat well. I eat a lot. I don't feel like I'm shorted in any way.

And I feel great.

You will too. Enjoy the journey. Relish the success. It's the best I've felt mentally or physically in a quarter of a century.

Hi everyone. I cannot say that I am new to SP. However, I have hit my rock bottom and am here to make a real committment to myself and hopefully achieving a life of good health, physical and emotional wellness with my body, and a life of balance. I was not always obese, but I have always had body image issues. Now at 340 pounds I am ready to embark on this journey "for me." I finally understand that this is going to be a lifelong journey. I didn't gain the weight over night and it's not going to come off over night either. I just hope that I can have the support of all the wonderful people using this site who understands the struggles I am facing and can occassionally lend a kind word of motivation.
