I started out top weight 245 but that was when I actually got on a scale. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 20 years ago. Over the years I've learned that I do so much better when I eat organic foods and I haven't eaten red meat in years I have been gradually working more raw foods, vegetables and fruit into my diet. I avoid drive through resturants like the plague.

Hello and welcome to our team Elise. I do understand what you are going through as I have been overweight all my life. This year I decided to do a lifestyle change. With that I made up my mind to lose weight, eat healthy foods and to workout. I am happy to say since January I have lost 20 lbs. The good thing is that I am having fun in doing all of this. We can diet, but after we lost weight we go back to our old styles and then we pick the weight back up and more.

So, what I am saying to you is this is the first start to a new and healthier you. Make the lifestyle change and not just dieting. Set a plan to take one day at a time. Start with an exercise plan of maybe exercise one day a week and work yourself up to two and so on. When you have the urge to eat try eating something healthy like fruit, veggie or a piece of cheese.

Cooking a good balance meal is not just good for you but your family too. This site is full of so many ideals, along with all the support that you will receive. The recipe's are great, I have tried a lot of them and I have even shared the meal with my family members outside of my home and they love it. They have some great workouts that you can watch and work along with them.

Just know that we are hear to help each other and that we have all been there and done that. Just keep talking to us and letting us know how you are doing. Stay positive and just keep believing in yourself and you will be losing weight in no time.

Hi I am Elise, sometimes I feel like I am the only one that looks like a beachball with arms. I don't want to go out much and part of me wants to be socialable. I am afraid of expressing myself because of my weight. I don't want to be made fun of. There is a movie that I seen one time. of a family that were poor but the mother was so big the town made fun of her, at the end she had a heart attack so to keep her kids from being reduculed the kids burnt the house so she would not be the talk of the town. My son was small at the time and he cried Mommy please lose weight so you won't look like that. I was much smaller than I am now. so I look at myself everyday and feel sad inside. I need all the encouragment that I can get. my friend and I are starting this diet together hoping we can help each other. and she is smaller than me, which makes me feel like a heel that I have let myself get this way. I try to look on the positive side one day at a time. So this morning I woke up to say this is a new day one minute at a time.
thanks for reading my message.
