Butterfly's journey to a new and healthy life

Hello...my name is Maggie aka xbutterflyx. I began my journey March of 2006. I have since lost 78 pounds. I have approx. 79 more that I want to lose. I receive support from my family and a wonderful best friend. I now understand that I am not on a "diet"..but on track for a lifetime of healthy eating habits. Exercise would be a thing to ignore in the past..it has became a way of life now. I want to feel better physically and to just love myself..being overweight does alot to one's self-esteem ...

I receive support from my family and a wonderful best friend. I now understand that I am not on a "diet"..but on track for a lifetime of healthy eating habits. Exercise would be a thing to ignore in the past..it has became a way of life now. I want to feel better physically and to just love myself..being overweight does alot to one's self-esteem and self-image. The mental aspect of being overweight is hard to deal with. Learning to let go is a major hurdle to get over...I am glad to be here and I have a feeling that I will have lots of support getting me over my hurdles. I am so ready to emerge from my cocoon of obesity and to emerge as a beautiful and healthy butterlfy.
