I have been overweight my entire life and morbidly obese for most of that. I lost 150 pounds in 2000 but was still obese according to the BMI scale. I gained 100 pounds back over 10 years and am now ready to lose it all (plus) or die trying. My new goal is to be within the healthy weight range by the end of 2011. For real.

I am tired of going to bed at night wondering if I'll have a heart attack in my sleep. I am tired of being in denial. I am tired of using food to help me cope with life. I am tired of not allowing myself to live. I am tired of making excuses, being afraid to try and wallowing in failure. I am tired of being afraid of success.

To be successful I need to be honest, deal with conflict, be gentle with myself, make mistakes and move on, give myself the room to go slow, know that this will take time, be patient, and with every step I take move closer to my goals. Every day is a new day - I need to keep trying.
