Red face 100+ lbs to lose, new to this site!

I'm 28. I was 274 pounds at my first WW weigh-in, and I'm now 262 I still have a lot of weight to lose to get healthy, though...

I have been a body-positive, size-acceptance fatshionista most of my life. I don't think that will ever change! But I have to shift how I view my body, especially after this past year of medical diagnoses.

About a year ago, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. More recently, I've been informed of my high cholesterol and prediabetes. I told my doctor about joining Weight Watchers and beginning to go to a spin class at the Y- she immediately put me on a cholesterol drug. She said, "I don't want to you to have a heart attack while you're exercising."

I don't want to have a heart attack either!

My uncle died of a heart attack when I was a teenager. Most of my relatives are carrying a few extra pounds. I went to a nutrionist when I was in high school. I was on WW five years ago. So, there have been many nudges and pushes for me to begin a weight-loss journey. I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a self-esteem component, but more than that, I need to get healthy. I am too young to be so physically bankrupt. Will you join me on my journey to a new me? Let's cheer each other on!
