It is no problem! I know for me I gringe anytime I see myself. I recall hitting 200 and thinking "well, I won't EVER allow myself to get to 250. Then I hit 250 and thought, "well, I DEFINATELY won't allow myself to get to 300. Then I find myself at my highest of 333! Horrid, HORRID cycle! I also look at this at more than just losing weight and getting skinny/slender...I mostly think about how much healthier I'll be!

Thanks for your reply, It's nice to see someone with struggles like I have. It's awful having back pain and being over weight, it's a vicious cycle!! Thank you for the encouragement! I like your idea of focusing on the little goals and have seen that you assign a reward to your pounds lost and think I'm going to try that out to motivate myself!

I know exactly what you mean! I have DD in my back also. I have a disabled 20 y.o. daughter who is 140 lbs. and I lift on her which aggravates the DD. I love her and will do it for as long as I can but it doesn't change the fact that lifting on her or bending over to change her aggravates my back. I have tried walking outside but walking on that pavement kills my back and trying to do Walk At Home is difficult because we have rugs covering bad spots in the floor until we can renovate the living room next spring. I have been on treadmills and it is much easier on my knee and back. I still have to take baby steps but I'm able to improve and up my time doing so! Being overweight, as I have learned, makes the back worse so I know it will help losing it. You can do this...just one little step at a time and don't focus on the long term goal...look at the little ones, 5 lbs, 10lbs...heck, I get excited just losing 1 lb.!

Hi I'm Mel, a 32 year old wife of 2 young kids. I am tired of looking at the woman in the mirror and feeling sick. I avoid all reflective surfaces and cameras because I HATE who I have become. I have struggled with eating disorders all my life!! I suffer from disk degeneration and arthritis in my back so my exercise is limited. I have an eliptical but have ignored it for a while because of depression over who I have let myself become. Stupid double standard I know! If I used it I wouldn't be depressed about it! I would love to have a buddy to lose weight with, but I'm the fat friend so that doesn't work. My hubby is supportive but I can't bring this to him. Sounds strange but I can't. Hoping to start a new me on here and getting support and giving support! Can't wait!
