Welcome from Anza,Calif.You can do it! Take it one day at a time or even one hour at a time. Walk even if only a few minutes.everything helps.Drink the water and my most hated option,journal. write down everything that goes in the mouth even gum.That will slow down the mindless eating.I eat when I'm sad,I eat when I'm happy,I eat in public with friends and I eat alone on my bed with my favorite book or TV shoe. I love to eat.So I know the up hill battle you are facing. Just take the weight loss journey in baby steps.You will get there!
My name is Marissa. About 7 years ago, I put all my chips on red, and wouldn't you know that life spun black. I'm not sure if it was depression or apathy, but I kind of stopped caring. About life, about myself. It was pretty selfish of me, I have two kids that I am raising entirely on my own (we're talking NO child support). I used to weigh about 140 (which isn't really good for 5'2", but at least I was content). And now I weigh about 294. I really want to change my life, and grab hold of something better. I'm really tired of being judged (especially of being judged), tired of being tired, tired of this pre-diabetes stage. That's one thing they never tell you - being morbidly obese is PAINFUL. You're feet hurt constantly, your knees hurt, and you get this nasty sores from where your clothes rub. Well, I don't want that anymore. I want to be like my old self, content. If I could be better than my old self, than that would be amazing. I lose focus really easy. I have developed very real and bad habits. I feel like I face the Mount Everest of weight loss goals. But I want a change. And no change is easy. So, I'm really hoping that I can use this site to help me focus, and reach my goals.
