1st I want to say hi and thank the people that have already welcomed me! What a nice place. I've been "lurking" and trying to figure out what to say. I'm 38 years old and I just went to the doctor on Friday and got on the scale and it said 325. I have gained 25 pounds in the last year. My goal for as long as I can remember has been to get under 200 and now it is to get under 300...then my goal will go back to not only getting under 200 but also staying under 300. It sure piles on easily doesn't it? It seems the harder I try to take it off the more I add on! I feel like such a failure and a loser. Well that sums up how I'm feeling. I have read a lot of the other posts. I think I found someplace that I fit in except that so many of you sound so positive! I hope you rub off on me!!! My legs hurt so bad (like I saw in another post) especially my knees and I'm to where if I'm up for more than 5 minutes or so at a time my back hurts so bad that I HAVE to sit down and rest. Not to mention how out of breath I get so easily and just what bad shape I am in in general. My health besides my weight is fine but I suffer from depression and anxiety which I take medication for and have for years. So that is my introduction now my question is that I've been looking around for a treadmill...something that I can use at home cause I'm embarrassed to go and try to walk outside of my home but I can't find something that will hold me. The max capacity on everything that I have found is 300 pounds. Does anyone have any suggestions on equipment that can handle my weight and then some...just to be sure? Thank you for welcoming me I'm glad to have found you.
