Default Well woman health check - scary

hi, I've introduced myself over in the UK board but thought I'd say hello here as well.

So a recent health check has finally scared me in to dealing with my weight seriously. Diabetes waist measurement in the red section, height and weight giving me a morbidly obese BMI and frightening statistics about heart disease (at least I'm not a smoker)... of course none of these things were a surprise but I've buried my head in the sand for the last 40 odd lbs.

Soooo, hello I've got at least 100lbs to shift... do you mind if I hang out here Pud x

Hello! Welcome to the 100 lb. Club!

I'm ex-UK, and proof that they'll let anyone in here! So, I think you'll be more than okay. Hmm... same height and similar goal to me too....

I'm here for health reasons, too. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and obesity is a major risk factor.

Welcome. This is an awesome group.

This has been one of the best resources for me, for my weight loss journey and I didn't find it until I was 4 months into it. Its real people, with real issues, and we are all depending on ourselves and each other for our lives is the way I look at it.

Welcome to the club, girlfriend!
