Default Hello -- Getting back to healthy

Hi all,

I am joining this site to help me in my continuing recovery from a major auto accident last year where I broke my back (among other things!). I spent my 50th Bday in the hospital last April, and can honestly say, it was one of my darkest days I ever remember. The sad truth is that it wasn't even so much about my injury or the fact that I could have almost died, but more about what I feared most--gaining more weight which has been a big battle since my mid-forties!

It's been a long 9 months since that day...and I've slowly recovered and now living somewhat normally, except I've not lost any weight or began a physical fitness program.

I am now focused on getting my strength back -- and rebuilding a healthy body. Because I have 80 pounds to lose, I am fearful that I will get overwhelmed if I don't take it slow and keep my goals realistic. I tend to be an overachiever who constantly puts unrealistic expectations on myself!

I am hoping this forum will be a good place to connect with others who share these feelings and we can talk each other through the ups and downs!

Default Thanks - how much do you want to lose?

How much do you have to lose? I have to reset my goals down a bit and focus on chunks -- like maybe 30 lbs at a time or else I think I will get too discouraged.
