Hello! I just posted a similar message! I too am scared and need some support. I am almost 40, need to lose about 50 pounds and scared as hell that I can't do it. But, seeing others that feel the same way makes me think that we can get over this. I just read some motivational posts. Baby steps seems to be what lots of people are saying. So, take it one minute, hour, day or week at a time. That's my plan! Good luck to you and hopefully we meet again when we have been successful!
