Hi, we must have been thinking of the same thing at the same time, wow! I haven't even fixed my profile yet but I think I could use your help too.
I am 37 (fixing to be 38)
Very happily married for 18 years
have 3 children (13, 10, and 9)
Have high blood pressure (June 2011)
Ok, just weighed myself and the scale says 177.8
I am 5'4" tall
I wear an xl shirt and a between a size 14-16 pants
I don't want to put a goal to it yet (no disappointments)
I have it in my mind to start working on it, but didn't want to pay for encouragement so I went online today to look for help and found 3fatchicks.com which I think I am thankful for.
I normally will tell everyone I know that I am going to lose x amount of pounds, or I bet you I can lose x amount of pounds before you; and I normally end up dissappointing myself and whoever I told. I am really embarrassed by my situation. I am blessed and I know it, but my body is LAZY!!
I can say all of this because I don't know you and maybe this will make it better. Ok I will buddy with you if you will buddy with me.
Do I need to make a goal?
Hope we can help each other in this "JOURNEY"!
