Hello, I am new! I have decided to label my first post, "Here I Go Again", because this is the fourth major attempt I have made to lose my weight.
I am a 29 year old mother with a two-year old and a very stressful job. Overweight nearly all of my life, I have decided again that I want to lose it all and see what skinny feels like.
I want to know what it is like to keep up with my beautiful daughter, what it is like to take her on amusement park rides, what it is like to sit with her at her kid table. But, most importantly, I want to set a good example for her and her health.
I will tell you, I am extrememly scared. But I am more scared to keep going the way I am going. Currently, I weigh 292.5 lbs. (5'6"). The highest I ever hit was 305 during my pregancy. The lowest I can remember is 165 during my Junior year of college.
I need help, I need support and I am hoping to find it here. I have read through a number of the posts and have found nothing but positive, friendly and genuine support and caring.
Can't wait to hear from you all! Thank You!
