You don't have to sit on that couch or lay in bed beneath the covers. You don't have to go to the kitchen and graze for comfort or to hide behind. You *don't*. You have the power within you to take a stand. It's scary, it's definitely an uphill process, DONT be afraid to let go of the things that GOT YOU here (struggling with weight, most likely a lot of health issues). DONT be afraid and DONT put it off. if YOU want to feel better about yourself, then DO something about it RIGHT now.
You - are the only one who can do this for *yourself*. If you need help, GET it. If you need support, DONT be afraid to reach out (forums here! a counsellor, a work out buddy). It's not the end of 'comfort' it's the beginning of a new and *wonderful life* that you are SO Deserved of HAVING.
