Hi. I'm 27 years old, 5'8" and weigh 223 pounds. I am miserable the size I am, I hardly go out because I feel so self conscious, I don't even let my husband see me naked. I have always been on the larger size but this is the heaviest I have ever been. I have tried all the faddy diets going, tried all the miracle diet pills, alternated between starving myself and bingeing then making myself sick. Usually I lose a bit then it goes back on when I start eating "normally". I am determined to do it this time. The crunch came when my friend recently came to visit. She weighs 120 pounds and look amazing. Every day she was in mini skirts and skimpy tops and I felt like such a blob next to her. The final nail in the coffin was when I met an old friend I haven't seen for a couple of years and she felt the need to comment on how much weight I have put on since the last time I saw her. Right there and then I thought: "that's it, I need to lose this weight." So here I am! I know that the weight did not go on overnight so will not come off overnight and I am realistic as to how long it will take me to reach my goal weight of 140 pounds. I know it is going to be hard and I could really use some support!!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
