wanted to start off by saying its so hard to just get out there and make new friends especially when you feel so scared about how people will look at you. you know the old judge before knowing you. i used to weigh 119lbs and be so out going and dare to do it all and now i am 310lbs and i have really shut my life down. i am married and mother of three and grandmother of 2 and i used to use the kids as an excuse to be to busy to take care of myself. now there is no excuse because one is out and one is going to ge a senior and my baby is going to be a freshman. so in others words they dont need me or want me anymore. i am probably going thru empty nest syndrome. now i want to start taking and putting myself first and i look around and i am alone and by god i looked in the mirror and i dont know who this person is anymore and i want to find "me" again. where do i start?
