I've hit bottom. From the outside, my life is wonderful - a great big house for me and the dog, a family who loves me, a great job, working from home. On the inside, I'm battling obesity, OCD, hoarding, agoraphobia, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, joint pain, and allergies to every known plant. It's time to make the life I actually live as good as the facade.

FAV. QUOTE - Do something to do it, not to have done it.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU - I've never been serious about changing my lifestyle before. I've always known it would be good for me to lose weight (eat better, exercise more, etc), and I've always been convinced I could do it, but I've never actually tried. I'm scared I will fail and have no one to blame but myself. But being a good model for my daughter and getting some serious attention for the medical issues I am facing (which can be pawned off as being weight related, but I'm pretty sure they are not) are making me want to try. I'm going to try really hard.

Default Now I am in 300 weight class Blah!!!! Read My Story

My title was written not to offend anyone who is 300 pounds of more. I have been struggling with my weight for years. For thelast four years, I have had severe cases of bronchitis, asthma,sinusitis, high blood pressure and fibroids. My weight hovered between 285 - 290 pounds. I noticed a month ago that my blood pressure was higher than normal.

Erricah is my username
I live in NJ
I am separated with 2 older children who still lives with me
I have one cat name Annette (she is crazy and moody like me but loves my children to death)

As of tomorrow, I will be joining Retro Fitness.
I do have a specific amount of weight that I want to lose but I am more concerned about losing is slowly. I really want to get off of the high blood pressure pills.
