I Wish To Be A Butterfly

*Waves* Hi Everyone!


I am Angela. I am a 42 year old, 338 lb. woman who has been there/done this before and am in worse shape than ever but I have finally gotten to the point that I am just completely sick of the way that I feel.

*Waves* Hi Everyone!


I am Angela. I am a 42 year old, 338 lb. woman who has been there/done this before and am in worse shape than ever but I have finally gotten to the point that I am just completely sick of the way that I feel. I am a business owner from home (home based pet sitting/grooming) and a full time online student so my schedule is nuts at times. I used to be the healthy fat girl that was morbidly obese but healthy, if that makes sense. Never much of an ailment other than the occasional cold so being fat was not a big deal to me. I still do not have any ailments per se but now my knees and back keep me from doing what I want to do and my desire to do anything is wavering. I do not want to be that person who sits so much that they never get up again.

I am being realistic this time in that I plan to lose slowly (I hate slowly), make my goals in 10 lb. increments (did I say that I hate slowly) I really do hate that it has to be done so slowly but I know what happens when I get gung ho and want to lose this and that and end up giving up because the goals are either too big or seem insurmountable.

I also am not going to fool myself as to how difficult it is to lose weight. It was far easier to gain itÖas a matter of fact, it seems to have gotten here so quickly that sometimes I do not even notice it. Getting the weight off will not be that easy (oh, but I so wish that it was). It takes work, it takes education and it takes perseverance. I am not going to lie either, it seems to take money! Not that getting this fat did not cost money, it surely did. Groceries, good foods, cost money and it seems to cost more to get fit than it does to be fat. Bottom line though, is that getting fit is the only option that I have. It will not get better from here if I do not lose some weight.

I am tired of the world passing me by and I am not joining it! Am I scared? Sure! I am scared of lots of things like will I be the same person when I lose this weight, will people treat me the same and will it even matter if they do, will my home life be strong enough to withstand the changes I must make, and things like that. I believe everyone goes through these fears or concerns. I am just one of the thousands here that have to learn to lose weight! I wish you all great success and wish myself that success as well!

Letís get healthy!
