You have made the first step the important one of realizing that you need to make a change. I am going through this also and needing to make changes maybe we can be a big support to each other....I could use the extra push and challenge from someone else also. I truly hope you don't mind.

I can so relate to your post. In 2006, weighing over 300 pounds, I started a weight loss journey of my own. It took me some time, but I eventually lost over 120 pounds. I hurt my foot back in February, and that made exercise pretty impossible...and to be honest, it made me loose some of my motivation to eat well. So here I am 20 pounds heavier than I'd like to be...continuing to work on my life-long weight loss journey.
It will be full of challenges. BUT...the feeling of success...stepping on the scale and seeing it go down...having people compliment you on your weight loss...buying SMALLER clothes...and most importantly...feeling HEALTHY...will make it all worth it. I wish you the best!

I have decided that I can't live like this anymore...I don't need to be skinny...that is something that I probably never will be and that is ok...that is not what it is about for me...my nephew in all of his sweet 3 year old innocence told me "cissy you are big and fat"...he loves me...he didn't mean to hurt me...I grabbed him and hugged him and told him not to say that to people that it would hurt their feelings but I also told him he was right...and I needed to do something about it...I want to be here to watch my kids have kids...I want to be here for my gorgeous nephews and nieces...I want to continue to be an active ER nurse....I am unhappy with how I move (or don't move!) I am unhappy about how it takes me so long to get back up off of my knee when I start an IV...I need to get focused and start to move more and EAT less...I need to pick healthy habits...I want to be active...feeling like this SUCKS.....I am ready!!!
