Default Need a change!

So I have come to the realization that I need to make some major changes in my life. I started gaining this weight about 2 years ago, and have had a steeper decline the last 12 months.

I am borderline plus sized at size 14, and these clothes are starting to feel tight and uncomfortable.
I just visited the doctor and have a BP of 138/108
I am susectible to depression and feel it creeping up on me. I have been on anti-depressants before, but found in the past that I have better mental health when I eat correctly and exercise rather than take pills.

I am really excited about starting a weight loss journey. I am tired of feeling like a cow, and am thrilled to find a community with the same goals because I know I'll need support.

Welcome! You've made a great choice. I started my weight loss when the 14's started feeling tight. Now I'm wearing 6/8 for the first time ever. You can do it too! And you won't regret it.
