Default HElP !!!

I need help! I am basically house bound! I have a great support with my husband, as he gets home @3:00. everyday he asks what do you want do honey? I always reply nothing! I have posted afew times , but can't seem to locate them I get up and just do nothing but sit @ the computer. I used to love taking care of my home,but now I can't get moyivated. as all I want to do is sit and eat junk I weigh 250lbs, and I'm 5'2' I'm going to this lady in my town @ 4:00 that has a Goal Weight clinic. Never heard of it before and it's been in my town for 10 years and is only 2 miles from me You all sound so supportive Have a good day P.S. does anyone have a problem with urine leaking? Sorry to be so graphic Thanks for listening :

Tell him you want to go for a walk around the block! I'd love for someone to say that to me!

Well, if you click on your profile, it will let you click another link to see all your posts. It will search them out for you.

I will answer this question in a Private Message, as it's a very private matter, that I don't think anyone but you wants to hear about.

Anyway, welcome and good luck @ 4 today--let us know what this lady says.

Welcome!

I'm glad to hear that you are motivated to do something. Pretty face is right, you should tell your husband you want to go for a walk. If anything it will get you out in the fresh air and that should make you feel better. I know it always does for me.

I hope that you find the support that you need here. Post often, and remember that we are all struggling with the weight issues.

Godschild - I really like your name. We are all God's children, and we all owe it to Him to take care of the earthly body he's given us.

So, on that note, welcome! I know you will find all the support you need here. Some of your things in your post lead me to think that maybe some of your weight problem is due to undiagnosed depression. (I know depression sure makes me eat!) Maybe you should see a therapist for a professional opinion.

Good luck!

Welcome, Godschild!! You've taken the first step by coming here. I'm fairly new myself and I've already received such great feedback, motivation, and inspiration. Good luck with your endeavors. I look forward to hearing from you about the health clinic. Take care.

Default oh honey...

here, dear. have a hug.... it'll be ok.

but what's going on with you? sounds like stress. depression. something is quite literally eating you!!!!!

now, instead of sitting at the computer all day, maybe you could start small. i'm not talking about walking a half mile just yet. just walking in place for 5 minutes at a time every hour. yes. just start SOMEWHERE.

how did the goal weight clinic appt go?

just stay and hang out with us. a bunch of great ladies. and very smart ones, too.

Dear Godschild,

Welcome to the site
If you want some info on leaking just do a seach at any pregancy site, One in three women have this problem at some stage and it can be treated, there are special exersizes you can do and hopefully will get completly better. It's a big problem with pregnancy so all big sites address it.
Good to hear your eating healthy and feeling more positive, Good luck

Kitty

I think Jenelle may be right about the depression ... I think a lot of us have probably been in your shoes. Even a little therapy can help. And exercise releases a natural anti-depressant (which I recommend you try before someone tries to put you on medication). Doing some light weight-lifting is a quick way to give you a boost -- at least it has been for me -- so you might want to explore some simple resistance exercises you can do, as well as the walking.

It must be wonderful to have such a supportive husband. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter giving you such trouble and heartache, and I hope your granddaughter is not in any danger ...

Oh, and another thing: you said you're housebound -- does that mean you can't go out or you choose not to go out? If you can go out, would it possible for you to get a part-time job or do some volunteering? This would get you out among people, another thing that would boost your psyche and get you a little busy. I imagine you belong to a church? They may be able to help you out in this respect. There's a woman at my church who is rather large and partially disabled who volunteers doing office work at the church.

I wish you the best! Stick around and keep us informed!

Welcome Godschild (I love your name, too!) It's tough, tough, tough getting started, but we HAVE to start somewhere. Start small & take it one day at a time... better yet, take it one minute at a time!

:grouphugs: We're all here whenever you need support!

Welcome!!! I'm a little late, but I have been away.

I am so proud of you for getting out. Does that mean that you are housebound by choice?

This is a great group of women. If your looking for support and motivation then you have come to the right place!!

Again...WELCOME!!
