I feel the same way DNA!
The word "obese" to me is so disheartening! Why do we have to put a label on everything?! FAT is FAT right? Why don't they just say FAT?!
The scale is another issue. What if you don't get down to the #'s the Dr. wants to see? I like to see inches, that gives me more motivation.
Labels are like cookie cutters if you ask me!

You got it out girl, you'll do just fine. Hang in there with the rest of us obese people and we'll nip this thing in the bud. It's going to take some time but I'm not going anywhere. We are all in this together.

Be the best you can be at this very moment and you'll have no regrets.

I went out and bought a new digital scale this morning to replace out old dial scale. Boy were we all shocked to see that our old scale was 10lbs on the light side. My hubby, daughter and myself all weighed 10lbs more than we did on the dial scale. So I went to my neighbors and used her scale and even drove to my moms to use her scale, and yep, it was true, our old scale was wrong. I adjusted all my numbers and I should still be thrilled because I have lost almost 20 lbs and 7.5 inches, but I guess I never really gave much thought to how out of control my weight is. I wish I could go back 10 years and show myself a picture of the unhappy and bloated me. Not until the last couple of weeks have I really given any thought to how my body shape was controlling my life. I have missed out on so many fun activities mostly because I didn't want to be the fat girl in a bathing suit, or didn't want to risk breaking something with my big butt, or not fitting into a ride at an amusement park.

I can feel a tide of change overtaking my thought process, and I know the Lord will guide me through. I also know I have some terrible habits that I have to break in order to continue my path towards a healthier me. I think I have to feel this great sadness that has washed over me today. I need to acknowledge that I am "obese" and now move on. I could never have said that word before...obese, obese, obese. I always thought, "I'm not obese, I am just fat".

I know this is long and should probally be on my blog page, but I guess I posted it here because I was hoping I am not alone. Just knowing that I am not the only person in America that feels this sorrow somehow makes me feel like it can be cured.

Ugh! I hate feeling like this.
