I am sick of the way I feel in my own body.

Cloths don't fit right.

I don't look in mirrors any more unless I have to.

I don't go our unless I have to.

When I was thin I thought I could relate to "the Fat Girl", I had no idea how they really felt.

Well I am done with it!

I am 35 years old and feel like I am 85. I have severe GERD, chronic pancreatitis, sphincter of ODDI dysfunction, arthritis, scoliosis, depression, panic attacks, and Factor V Leiden. With the pancreatitis I am so very close to becomming diabetic, and obese on top of that is NOT helping. My doctor wants me on a strict diet, because I HAVE to loose weight to better my health. It seems too steep of a hill for me to climb and it scares me that I can't do it. It is just all the pain and fear of failure that holds me back. I have to, and I WILL!

I live in beautiful St. Paul, and can take advantage of all the walking/biking paths by the river. Call that a pro.

I have great friends and have their support.

There are awesome co-ops and the farmers market for tons of fresh vegetables and fruit.

I have tried before, and life events have given me good excuses to quit. I can't this time.

SO I am ready to learn and grow here, not to mention reach my goals. I am so ready for all of this to change. And with everyones support I believe I can fdo it!
