    I'm new here. I'm a single mother of two little boys and I am what would be considered morbidly obese. I'm 5ft 1 and weigh 277. A couple years ago, I managed to drop 50lbs and I have put it back on and then some. I felt great just by dropping 50lbs and I want to get that feeling back. I'm having a hard time finding my motivation. I just want to get healthy for myself and my kids.

I've always known that I have a weight problem, but my family doesn't see this as an issue. If they were...
