Default It's time for a change.

I'm Chrys, a 33 year old, 305 pound wreck. I am so tired of crying myself to sleep every night because I can't stand my own company. Because I hate that I can't control myself. I need that change, one way or another and so I am here to try and begin a new path to better myself and my health at the same time.

I need help, I know i do but I hate asking for it. It's one of my biggest weaknesses. I am a shut in, so I figure my first step will be obviously on the web, where I can keep a small amount of privacy and work my way up from there.

So anyway, hello all.

A slightly longer intro on my blog if your really interested, I don't think I can type it all out twice.

Welcome, Chrys! You've come to the right place for support, motivation, and just some good cheerleading! Realizing you need to make change really is the hardest part. Not that exercising is easy.... LOL But I think you're off to a great start. You know why it needs to be done and you're already going out of your comfort zone to make it happen. First victory!! Jump into the threads here and let's start off the new year right!!

Welcome Chrys! I'm fairly new here, but I've already received great support. I've been really down on myself a lot and these people are great for helping you to keep the chin up, if you will.

Hi Chrys,
So many of us have problems with control around food--it isn't as if we can "go cold turkey" as we have to keep eating to survive! Try to have compassion for yourself. Why are we our own worst enemy? Even my subconscious has it out for me--every time I make a declaration to up it up a notch (healthy eating and exercising) I immediately get very sick, or more recently, break a bone. Let's all give ourselves a great big hug!

Welcome!

Thank you all for the kind, warm welcomes. I know I will beable to get the support and perhaps motivation I need to stay on track. I will make an effort to keep active on the boards, I can get very shy very quick. It is something else I need work on lol.
