Hi everyone, I have been a member for awhile now, but have never used the tools on here. I was supposed to start today, but mad at myself. My mom had a dinner today and I ended up having some candy, ate the steak dinner she fixed me and had seconds on her homemade mashed potatoes and gravy (she's from the south and her gravy is delicious - I can never pass up her gravy or her homemade baking powder biscuits).
Tomorrow for sure I have to start. I am looking for some local supporters to do this with and motivate each other. I have two friends in this area. One needs to lose weight just as badly as I do, but he is dying now (he has a bad liver - they can't replace it because 1) he weighs over 500 pounds, and 2) he is a diabetic and his blood sugar is close to 400 everyday. His doctor says he is too high risk to operate on and with his diabetes out of control it would just destroy the new liver. I keep trying to get him to lose weight with me, but he says, "No, I am dying and there is nothing I can do to stop it." My other friend is already thin, but claims he needs to lose weight in his mid-section - I can't see where he needs to lose any weight though. It would be nice to meet some other friends in this area. Especially female friends. I have no female friends here to bond with and there are a lot of things guys wouldn't understand. I am open to new friendships with men and women though.
Tomorrow is a new day though and I plan to stay 100% on plan now that the holidays are behind us.
