My name is Colleen. I am 35 years old, married, mother of 2 and I am fat. Just plain fat. I realize that this is not a positive way to refer to myself but, I have finally realized that...I am fat.
I am 5'5" 220lbs. My eating is out of control and I am constantly tired. I do not choose the correct foods. I do not eat enough fruits and veggies. I do not exercise with any consistency. Half of the time, I don't even want to leave the house. I live in the South and it gets HOT in the summer. The thought of wearing sleeveless shirts and shorts makes me sick.. Worst of all, I constantly obsess over these things. I beat myself up, I tear myself down and I become more and more depressed. . It's a vicious cycle.
I have 2 choices - I am continue on this same path, and continue to get fatter and fatter and, ultimately, make myself sick
I can choose to make some significant changes in my life.
I choose the second option!
Now that I have gotten all of that off of my chest, it is time to move forward. Time to be more positive. Time to take each day, each hour, each minute, one at a time.
I am REALLY looking forward to meeting some new friends here on 3FC. I have read through many of your posts and I am finding a lot of inspiration.
Cheers to a New Me!!! FINALLY!
