I am a F/T caregiver to my elderly mother. She is verbally, mentally and physically abusive.

Since I spend a majority of my time at home I'm looking for a place where I can receive support and encouragement from others to acheive my weight loss goals.

I can't wait to get started on my journey to "getting me back."

Unfortunately, my weight loss goals have significantly increased over the past few years. I now need to lose 100+ pounds. I'm hoping to set mini-goals so the large amount of weight I have to lose doesn't seem as daunting.

Welcome to the Caregivers Support group.

I ditto Sharon's hope for you to get some help. I'm there myself. Fortunately, I have a wonderful husband who helps me alot. We also have a nurse who comes each week to check my gran's vitals.

Good luck on your journey to finding yourself and taking care of yourself.

Hi, Julie -

I can relate to your problems as a caregiver. I took care of both of my parents in the last years of their lives. It is a hard situation to be in. I hope you get some help from family or social agencies.
