Screen Name: Slimin07

Age: 43

Family life: Divorced, 1 daughter age 23

Occupation: Political/Government

Hobbies/Interests: Music, Reading, Movies, Sports (viewing)

Favorite Music: Any except rap or alternative.

Favorite Color(s): Turqoise, red, pink, purple

Favorite exercise/workouts: None yet, hopefully that will change.

What are your fitness/health goals? My goal is to undo some of the damage that being obese has done to my body and to ward off any future health problems.

Trigger to change: My feet and back hurt all the time, and I hate the way I look and feel.

Struggle: I'm an emotional eater. I'm single and I don't have alot of friends and at 43 I'm not sure how to go about making new friends. My tendency to be a hermit so I won't have to go places by myself leads to eating from loneliness and boredom. That's why I'm here. Maybe on my lonely evenings I can find a friend to chat with here instead of eating.

3 things to improve: I definitely need to exercise, get out of the house more to avoid binge eating, and have a more positive attitude.

Evil motivaton: None. I don't care about looking better than anyone else. I just want to be healthy and as attractive as I can be.

What do I want to wear at goal weight: Pencil skirts and nice heels.

Wow - it's a whole year since I posted this. I have lost 67 pounds and my sister has put on about 30.

We are now wearing the same size clothes but she's about 5 inches smaller than me so she looks bigger on it. So I actually looked better than her this Christmas for the very first time ever in my whole entire life!!!

Is it rotten to be a tiny bit pleased about this?
