Trying again with a different method

I am tired of being fat. I am tired of hurting all the time..my bones hurt. I dont breathe or sleep well. I need to finally be an example to my kids. I gotta quit kidding myself. I would like to smile when I look in the mirror for the first time in ten years. Maybe able to buy clothes that look like they belong on a woman...not just struggle into anything that fits. Most of all I want to live...love...dance...one more chance. That is all I ask.

I know where you are coming from. That is what motivates me each day..just give me one more time at it. I want to go out dancing,.. I want to be able to look in the mirror once again....I so get what you are saying.
Just want you to know I am behind you all the way.
I tell myself before sleep each night that I refuse to eat wrongly or overeat and the next day that is exactly what happens! I have the will to eat small and healthy, and want to exercise. That's called consciousness work. I did that years ago and lost weight, looked great in a bikini. Family crisis threw me off but I am back at my nightly work at telling my body who's boss! :)
I wish you the very best!
