Yes, I 've decided after a lifelong battle of the bulge that I am sick and tired of being fat! I was a chubby baby, a husky kid, a plump teenager...I did have a few thin years in my early twenties, but marriage and two kids have put it all back on me and then some! For awhile, I actually didn't mind being a fat woman. Discovering queen sized pantyhose helped...but I kind of liked being soft and comfortable. Now, though, I am so ready to feel better, healthier, and stronger. I will probably whine and complain a little, but I am glad to have found this site to make new friends and help each other along the way. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi. I'm looking forward to spending online time here!
