5 years ago I joined this site when I hit 240 pounds because I felt I was spinning out of control with my weight. I had just graduated college with a nursing degree, moved away from family and friends for a job in a city where I knew no one, and had just got out of relationship that left me heartbroken. It was a new start to life as a grownup.
Approx 5 years later I am now 290 pounds and feel hopeless.In the past 5 years I've moved in with my now boyfriend, I went to part time when our beautiful 2 year old daughter was born, and I've been promoted to supervisor at my job. A lot has happened and a lot of added stress has happened. In addition to my boyfriend and my daughter, my boyfriend has two teenage daughters and a disabled brother who lives with us.
The breaking point for me was a trip to kings island this summer when I was kicked off not one but two rides for being too big. Thats when I realized I wasn't just "big boned"
I'm going to Disney World in November and I'm dreading the plane ride due to my weight plus all the activity involved there. I want to be able to keep up with my daughter and enjoy myself as well.
Really hope to drop 20 pounds in the next 2 months but right now I'm feeling its impossible.
