I am in my mid thirties and finally I am overweight. I don't want to look back when I am in my 50's when I am even more over weight and think "Why didn't I do something about it when I had the chance" I have been a weight conscious person since I was about 15 years old and it has been both a good and bad thing. Good because for most part it forced me to keep a heads up when it came to diet and nutrition, On the bad side it has been something that has always been on my mind. After the birth of my second daughter I developed lower back problems and once I stopped running as regular exercise I started to gain more weight, the back problem has got worse and now I have a herniated disc and what I think might be other related aches and pains that I am hoping will go away as my weight begins to go down. I love to walk and even that has become difficult and cumbersome. I am a stay at home mom, who also practices as a visual artist. I am usually a very active person, love cooking with my husband (I am his assistant in the kitchen) Dieting is not really a problem for me, this time I want ot make changes that will last a life time. I want to get to a weight that I feel good at, for me not for others. I am afraid of talking about this with friends as they have always said I am fine and as soon as I start to loose weight they ask me if I am OK. This is about me not them. Anyhow I look forward to meeting some friends and supporters who can help me on this journey.
