Ok, before I start this discussion, I want everyone to know I am obese as well. I joined this support group because, well, because I am obese, and I thought that maybe I would find somone who was going through the same thing I was, and could offer some advice. I also have a food addiction, so, that is something I am working on. The thing that bothers me is that some people, not everyone, on this web site believe that just because someone is obese then they have no self worth. That is not true. Everyone on this web site has the skills that they need to acomplish what ever goal they set for them selves. I have read some posts that have really bothered me, because I believe that just because you are obese, that should not stop you from enjoying life. Amusement parks, sex, and everyday life is perfectly enjoyable for obese people. I was well over three hundred pounds, and with some help from my family, I lost alot of that weight. I still have a lot to loose, but with a little hard work, I will loose the rest. I do not mean to sound disrespectful, so please don't take my post as disrespectful.
