Default Hi, I'm Constance

I'm hoping to get some support on this forum by directly communicating with some members who want to travel this weight loss journey with me. My weight gain has not been a problem until now. My knees are killing me and I'm feeling painful joints never experienced before. I was thin most of my life until I got a divorce from an abusive husband. I basically thumbed the world, rejecting it. Believe it or not, I am a happy fat person. But, now this weight gain has slowed me down with doing the things I love: tennis, hiking, cycling. I'd love to look better in my clothes again. I have to lose about 100 lbs. I can't believe I'm this heavy!

Hi and welcome. I'm new here too. We all do not what to be fat, so we are here. I hope you'll find what you are looking for here.
I'm sure you can lose 100 lbs. If someone did it, you can too.

Is it insensitive to congratulate you on the divorce? That's one kind of weight loss...

Slowing down is something I definitely relate to, too, especially the hiking and cycling. Suddenly, my favorite hikes are crazy difficult and I can't keep up with the long bike rides that used to be so fun and freeing. How did that sneak up on me? You can definitely do this, though!

Hi Constance: Nice to meet you. I'm Susan. Like you, I have recently gained a lot of weight...mine due to health issues. When I started out several months ago, I too had a lot (105 lbs) to lose. I've since lost 17, with 88 to go. It will take a while (at least for me, since I'm 64 and walk with a cane, so exercise options are limited), but it's a journey worth traveling. Good for you, making the decision to abandon your former abusive relationship. If you look around on this forum, you will find various threads that provide support. For example, I regularly post to a thread called "August Weight Loss Challenge", which you will find in the "Chicks up for a Challenge" sub-forum under "Support Groups". We post our goals each month and our progress, and we encourage each other. Feel free to join us. Alternately, look around and you will find similar threads that you can join. I wish you the best of luck!
