Looking for support... it's a long road
I have been a lurker in the online world and never sought support or interaction regarding weight issues.
After serial failures, I think it is time to try something new. Hence this posting. I will try to post weekly from here and see how long it is til I drop out... wish me luck (and fortitude).
Having had childhood onset obesity, I am about 50 and 6' and weigh ca. 350. Like the poem about little girls, when I am good I am very very good (alas) when I am bad I am horrid. I love over-consumption... but enough detail.
I am going to target a weight loss of 70 pounds over the next 7 months... a bit aggressive but I would love to end the year at the much healthier weight of 280. (after I hit 280 we can talk....)
My interim goal is to break 300 (-50 pounds) in 3 months (end of August).
Any comments or ideas will be appreciated... thanks for your support.
