Hi, I was looking for a support group and found this site. I'm eager to make new friends with the same goals as me. I started out being 410 pounds and now I weigh 360 pounds. It would be less but I have gained atleast 8 pounds back that I had to relose again.. Which is always a pain. However, I want to be encouraging to anyone who feels hopeless... I think lots of times because the world treats people who are overweight like they don't matter that we sometimes lose the care we place in ourselve. We want to help ourself but we don't respect ourself, feel ashamed, and why bother, right? No one else cares?! Its an endless cycle of abuse that we do to ourself because we hate what being overweight does to us and how the world makes us feel so bad about it..... The good thing is that we are so valuable/beautiful! We have a purpose in our life and we need to fight for it.. If we don't - our future children, husband, job, and etc. will miss out on the wonders of "us". We can control what we eat even though its hard at first but everyday you do good then you build discipline to fight the next day. And the more good stuff you put in your body the more your body craves it.. Your body craves what you feed it.. So, when you change your eating habits and you really want something sweet its b/c thats what your body is used to b/c of how we have been feeding it.. After 30 days of change you will not want to eat things that you used to eat... When you start learning about calories/fat and how unhealthy things are for you..Knowledge is power!! You want won't to put it in your body... Anyway - I thought I would share. I'm not in any means a know it all and I have a very long way left to go to loose the rest of this unwanted weight but I just wanted to leave some encouragement that you do have the power to change your life and you ARE SOOO worth it. ; )
