Hi everyone! I'm 32 years old, and I currently weigh 198 lbs. I'd like to get down to 110 or 115 lbs. I don't have 100 lbs to lose, but I hope I'm still welcome here.
In the past year, my weight has really started to affect my health. I have high blood pressure, and I'm having a lot of joint pain in my knees. A few months ago, I was diagnosed with asthma. I can't walk up a flight of stairs without having an asthma attack. I feel hopeless, alone, and most of all, old
. People who are twice my age can walk circles around me.
In the past few months, I've become really depressed. I've lost hope that I can lose this weight. At the same time, the thought of living the rest of my life like this is unbearable. I'm hoping to find people who understand that losing weight is not easy!
I have started attending online OA meetings, and I subscribed to several OA email lists. I want to go to a physical meeting, but the times conflict with my work schedule.
Thanks for reading. I appreciate it!
