I have been obese for 20 years. 38 years old now. Recently made some changes and am currently 162. thinner than I have ever been. Finding it hard to keep going in the face of tremendous stress and lack of belief in myself. I have no friends or support so am reaching out online for help and advice and to help others as i am doing something right to get this far. I recently completed two 5ks one being a filthy obstacle course. I have never been athletic, so am trying to see myself differently. I have some kind of dismorphic body image. I do not see a difference in my body when I look in the mirror but logically know I've had to buy smaller clothes so it must be true. I do yoga 5 times a week and am considering becoming an instructor.


*** finding great friends here. Bouncing up and down those darn 4 pounds....thanks all for support. Been back on track and down more than those 4 pounds since coming here.

Living in an attitude of gratitude

***got the scale moving again, down to 157. Realizing how close I am getting to goal. Blogging helps. Just popping out whatever is on my mind.
