Reality Check for Me - New start
Hello all,
I have been struggling with my weight in the last four years but tonight I got the wake up call of the lifetime for me. I had reached a weight of 207.8lbs which felt like why did I buy a scale. My finascee and I are getting married in August of this year after being together for over 9 years. I swore to myself I was never going to let myself get to this heavy of a weight. I watched my grandmother become mortability obese to the point of bed ridden and I have a sister-in-law that has major health issues because she is also morbaility obese. I have never been this size unless I was pregnant. When I get winded from wrestling with my husband and he is only 3 pounds heavier then I am then I gave myself a good shake. I have started eating better in the last week or two but I need to get back into the lifestyle that I was before I had my youngest. I am an emotional eater, which is not good I know. I am hoping to find encouragement as this is a real struggle for me. Bluntally put I hate how I am right now and need a change.

Fun screen name, I once attended a medieval wedding, a real hoot that... Anyway welcome aboard. It's not going to be easy, I won't lie to you about that, but it's going to be great. I started off heavier than you even, in part because I felt like not only was a heart attack likely, it was eminent, that and I just wanted to be able to keep up with our kids. You might want to check out a couple of threads, their are a couple of 100 pound threads, even if you don't need to lose that much they are really good spots to check. There is also the 7-day motivational thread, starts new each week, gets pages and pages long. Make goals - stick to them, give a report, that sort of thing.
