Hey my friend I know exactly how you feel right now, I was there in exactly the same place. I knew I was getting fat and I finally took the courage to get on the scale and I was so shocked to see my weight, I broke down and cried. I read on that darn scale that I was 194#, that was such a bad shock. I thought how could I let myself get to such a terrible weight.
Today I am now down to 148#. Yahoo!!!!!!! IF I CAN DO IT, YOU CAN AS WELL!!!!!!
Now another word of wisdom. It has taken me about 2 - 3 years to do it, but it has been well worth it. So DO NOT GET IN A HURRY. The slower it comes off the better, at least you have a better chance to keep it off.
I still want to loose another 8# but I am doing maintaining for a little while, then I will try to get that off. The last few #s are always the hardest.
Good Luck and my Motto is NEVER GIVE UP EVEN AFTER YOU REACH YOUR GOAL!!!
I am going to add you to my dear friends, so any time you feel like talking, you are welcome at any time. I would love to be your weight loss buddy, whenever you need a shoulder to cry on or a pal to brag to about what you have lost that week.
Hugs and Love and Best Wishes, Rosalyn in Corvallis Oregon
Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance. It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn
Hi, my name is Crystal. I have lost weight before but gained almost all of it back after I had my third and last child. I am 25 and push 200 pounds. I can actually cry now because I just typed that in and it sounds awful. However, I choose to get healthy for me my husband and my kids, but mostly for me. Wish my luck!
