Angry Hi!! I'm a newbie

All of you are encouraging and supportive of each other.

I am a single mom of two boys, ages 10 & 11. I had been thin all of my life until my marriage broke up 9 years ago. I work full time. I am the sole support of my sons. During the past 9 years I have gained 90 lbs.

I finally decided I need to do something, as I was so disgusted with the way I looked and felt. I hated to shop because even if I could find clothes to fit me, they did'nt look very good on me.

I am now going to start doing for me. I haven't had a date in 9 years, and I think I need to start exploring this part of my life also.
But first, I need to feel better about myself first.

I am trying to do this on my own, I just started last week. I am trying a vegetarian diet (I don't care for meat anyway). Low fat of course.

I haven't been really exercising, as it is so cold right now in the east, and I really want to walk.

It's very nice to meet all of you.

Current weight - 212 (as of 1/25/03)
