Hello...brand new to this site as I just found it, but have loved what I have read so far.
I've been overweight since I was 8 years old and I am now 38. I am so tired of being so heavy (about 278lbs) as inside of me there is a thinner person just longing to break free and that girl wants to horseback ride and go camping with her kids and all sorts of things. On the outside, however, this girl needs to become healthier.
I sabotage myself often as I struggle with self control, HOWEVER, I quit smoking 9 weeks ago and have been feeling empowered to lose weight. I NEVER thought I could give up cigarettes as I loved to smoke (and still miss it) but have not once cheated. I KNOW if I can quit that, then surely I can lose weight.
Just really looking to make some new friends, those who are working on weight loss like I am or those who have achieved it who can inspire it. Would love to support all of you as well!
