I love this sight. I can talk about anything with my weight loss or not. Tell my deepest regrets & embarrassments & know I will not be judged. I feel safe here. You pump me up when I need it. Thank you for your help. I love you.

Don't be afraid to push yourself. You can do more than you think you can and you shouldn't let fear of failure or embarrassment hold you back. To quote the title of an old self help book: feel the fear and do it anyway!
Embarrassment only lasts a minute, but the feeling of accomplishment lasts a lot longer and will keep you going. Don't let embarrassment/shyness/fear prevent you from asking for help if you need it - most people want to help you achieve your goals. The ones that don't are to be pitied!
Dancing is so much fun. There is no right or wrong way to do it. Celebrate yourself and move to the music. I put on top 40 hits with a heart thumping beat and move. My teenage daughter used to cover her eyes and groan in embarrassment. Now she can't help but move too. We now dance together.
