Ready for a change!

Hi,
I am a 50 something widow who is remaking her life and realizing her dreams. I am a college student with a 4.0 GPA, 2/3rds of the way through my first novel, and it is high time I stopped making excuses and made a real effort to lose this weight. I really need to lose 100 lbs. I cannot even *lift* 100 lbs and yet I carry it around every day! Is it any wonder that I am tired and feel bad?

I have always struggled with my weight, and there was one point in my life when I ...
Hi,
I am a 50 something widow who is remaking her life and realizing her dreams. I am a college student with a 4.0 GPA, 2/3rds of the way through my first novel, and it is high time I stopped making excuses and made a real effort to lose this weight. I really need to lose 100 lbs. I cannot even *lift* 100 lbs and yet I carry it around every day! Is it any wonder that I am tired and feel bad?

I have always struggled with my weight, and there was one point in my life when I was in my mid-20s and weighed over 300#s. Losing was a lot easier then. I went from sitting at home doing nothing to working hard on my feet every day, exercising, and cutting back on food and I lost down to 125.

Now I am diabetic, so my metabolism crawls, my back is in really bad shape and I have arthritis. So there are more challenges, but I need to do this. I am tired of being tired of what I see in the mirror. I hate not being able to wear the fashions that I love. And I really hate not being able to do the things I want to do.

Also, people judge me based on my appearance. I am convinced it has kept me from getting a job. People associate fat with lazy, and they know I will probably cause the company health insurance to go up because I will automatically have more health issues. So, I have to change.

I did an online quiz recently that told you how long you would live and was shocked when it told me I had 10 more years. I am not afraid of dying. I am a Christian and I know where I am going, but I have goals and dreams I would like to realize before I go. So, I have really got to change! I hope to find help and inspiration here. I was on here years ago but never really did anything with my membership or for myself. My attitude has changed - but I know I need help!

Still interested in writing? Our team really needs our writers to unite and share their writing and any useful hints/tips/ leads that they have. I am not an expert in writing. Just a simple woman on a journey......Hope you will join me!

Blessings, Christine (aka Huzzah39) - Current Leader of ' Write His Answer"

Thank you for inspiring me! Until I read your intro., I never ever thought about my weight the way you put it. "I can't even lift 100 lbs, but here I am carrying it every day". WOW!! That is powerful words! I have a spine injury & even a gallon of mil is hard for me to carry (with 1 hand as I walk with a cane). Considering I have close to 120 lbs to lose - yeah that IS a big deal :) Again, Thank you!
