Enough already!

I've been heavy my whole life and have been yo-yo dieting for the past 7 years. I'm making permanent changes to my diet and lifestyle and look forward to having a long, healthy life.

I have lost several loved ones (including my mother) due to weight problems and I refuse to let weight be my killer.

I want to get out and start living. I have so much that I want to do, but I've let me weight hold me back for far too long. I finally got on an airplane last year ...

I want to get out and start living. I have so much that I want to do, but I've let me weight hold me back for far too long. I finally got on an airplane last year (2010) for the first time since 2002. I was worried about the 2 seat thing, but I was totally fine. I definitely have to stop living in fear. That starts now!

I used to dance competitively, but as I gained weight I stopped doing it and sort of became a recluse. At almost 30, I'm just starting to come out of my shell again and I find that no one is judging me more harshly than me. Gotta stop that - for good.

Hi...happy Easter...
I just wanted to stop by and tell you that I know how you feel. I lost my sister over a year ago because of her weight. It is still hard because she was my best friend. I am trying to loss weight too because I don't want to die young. I also know what you mean about airplane seats. I am always afraid of whether I will fit in the seat(theatre, airplane, waiting room). It is hard to live in fear.

It is time for a change....and I am sure we can do it.

Nice to meet you....I hope to talk to you again...(sfrench04)
