I have been overweight since second grade. I have tried many many new approaches but still I eat for emotional reasons. I now need to alter my behavior for myself and children.

I have been overweight since second grade. I have tried many many new approaches but still I eat for emotional reasons. I now need to alter my behavior for myself and children. I don't want the same to happen to them. "Nothing will change if I don't change something". I can't even breathe when I walk I've gained so much weight in the last year. Must realize every day I'm fortunate to be alive will have good and challenges. Can't spend my life in fear - fear something/anything will go wrong.

Don't waste your life in doubts and fears:
spend yourself on the work before you,
well assured that the right performance of
this hour's duties will be the best preparation
for the hours or ages that follow it.
~~Ralph Waldo Emerson~~

Have a Wonderful Day!
