Good morning, buddy. Yes, I have walked in your shoes. I was at one point in my life, over 315 lb. This morning, I met my goal weight of 171. I am still heavy in my eyes so I am going to move that target down to 165 and then I will "see" how it goes.
Lisa, it is an old saying, but the longest journey starts with the first step and you have made that first step, and it is in the right direction. As you are in the Managing Diabetes Group, I assume you are also diabetic. So am I. My weight loss has made profound changes in my health and it will do the same for you.
You will find incredible support and answers for every question you ask. Remember, the only "wrong" question is the one you dont ask.
So, Lisa, I am not sure what being a buddy is all about, but consider this as my offer to be a buddy to you. This is a difficult journey and we all need help on occasion.
