Well, I did it ... I signed up... 1st step taken. I happily filled in my profile with much gusto. Sat here planning how I will start to take care of myself for a change. Rhyming off all the excuses in my head that I have told myself in the past.
Fact of the matter is I feel the time is now. My body certainly feels that the time is now. I am concerned about my healthy as I'm not getting any younger. I am 44 and have been overweight for most of my adult life. I have been surrounded by enablers (in the nicest sense of the word) for many of these years, it just takes one compliment from somebody and I feel good about myself... Sadly I do nothing about my weight whilst I feel good and so the excuses continue. Truth is I am morbidly obese, the brave face that I have always put on is not enough any more. It is time for me to take care of myself!!! I look forward to getting to know others that are on this journey, to listen to their advice and get motivated.
