Thailand Nov 2014 - Feeling very uncomfortable in my own skin

This needs to change, very uncomfortable at this weight and I hate pics right now (10/14)

I felt huge here, realized this is what I look like and how everyone else sees me.



Happy Face

I have been working on weight loss for over 30 years. What I need to be working on is Optimal Health!

I don't want this to continue. I do have health struggles, but I know what they are. I am doing all I can to manage them and luckily, I am not on medication like the rest of my family. But...

Being this heavy is not healthy. It is not where I want to be.

I am coming up on my 40th birthday and don't want to be at the weight and BMI I am at. My goal is to lose 100 lbs by then, I am already down about a third of that. I have about 7.5 months to lose about 70 pounds. I know it is possible. About 10 pounds a month is not crazy and I know what I need to do.

I am DONE being on this track, it's time to do something different!
