100 lb. Club - Well woman health check - scary
01-16-2009, 03:20 PM
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 :wave: I've got at least 100lbs to shift... do you mind if I hang out here :goodvibes Pud x

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!
