Just wanted to introduce myself. I joined Sparkpeople 1 and a half years ago, but I am new to participating. I am scared. I have struggled with my weight and body image my whole life. Today, I am at my highest weight. I am done living like this.
I just want to be able to make healthy choices about diet and exercise. I have been working for some time to love myself as I am. Today, I know that I am a beautiful person, inside and out, regardless of my "rolls", but I'm not happy. I have made so many healthy choices in other areas of my life. Today I am ready to start with my physical self.
Tomorrow is the day that I have set to start, although, I feel like by getting on here, blogging and joining a couple of teams I have already started. I would like to lose 100 at the very least. It seems overwhelming to me when I think about it, and I know that I need to slow down and take it one day at a time. It just helps me a lot to know that I am not the only one on here looking at such a goal.
Thank you guys for being here!
"We had a new Employer. Being all powerful, He provided what we needed...As we felt new power flow in, as we enjoyed peace of mind, as we discovered we could face life successfully, as we became conscious of His presence, we began to lose our fear of today, tomorrow, or the hereafter.
We were reborn"
