I am going to start anew, today. I told a friend of mine if I ever quit saying I'm fgoing to start again, then I have lost all hope. I have already started today. I will stick to it this time. I have to be positive.

It is hard enough to try to lose the weight, but when you quit smoking it adds on as well. I quit awhile back and even with that monkey off my back It is a struggle with the weight issues. You can make this happen!

I hope I am doing this right.... I'm trying to figure out how to work this message board/forum. Anyways, thanks all for the welcomes and kind words and GREAT advice. As I am sure you all know what a struggle this is. I especially hate it at work cause, I am the ONLY fat person there!! (What a stinky position to be in, UGH.) I am sure all the girls are saying "what a pig" (or at least in my mind they are). Yes, I do have some self esteem issues besides being so heavy so its a doouble struggle for me. I did at least quit smoking (thus the weight problem). It has been way to long to still be blaming that but, when I quit, I gained a half ton. I won't start to smoke to help me loose. I already did that and it did not work! So, I've actually quit smoking 2 times!! But, I am well over that habit so no worries there. I have started to keep track of all I eat starting today. Good, bad, or otherwise. At least I will know. I just read somewhere that you are twice as successful by doing that. So, the meal tracker here looks pretty good. I wish all of you great success (and me too). Evelyn

Hi All, Here I am, going to try to loose some weight again. I wish I could. I am tired of being so fat (and ugly). I just want my skinny husband to be proud of me. (He has never said he wasn't.) I don't want to be embarrassed in public. We like to go on our motorcycles but lately, I don't go at all cause I am too ashamed of myself. I am hoping to find a LOT of support and encouragement here. I heard of this site in the Womans World magazine. (Oh, I seem to ramble on and on at times!)
