Hi there everyone!!
I have reached my lowest point and have decided to really take control of my life and get this weight off of me once in for all. I am 29 years old and live in South Georgia. I do not have any kids right now, and I am finally realizing it probably has alot to do with my size. I am 230lbs, and really I need to weigh around 135-150lbs. I prefer to be 135 but for now I am going to set small goals and hopefully in a years time I can reach that goal.

I have been so angry and so sad for so long, and its because I have let my weight consume me. It has made me into this person I do not even recognize and well quite frankly I don't like this person I have become. I have always been a bubbly, easy going person that just loves life to the fullest, and well now all i want to do is roll up in a ball and lay on my couch which I eat chips all day. ha!!

So I am here for the first time in my life, to quit feeling sorry for myself, and take action. I have done this time and time again. You know get the courage up and do it, but for some reason I just dont stick it out. But I know I need to do this. Not only to feel good about myself again and have that confidence, but to be healthy. They say once you hit 30 its just harder to get off. So I have a year to do that.

I know with all you people out there supporting me, I will get through it because you all out of anyone knows what I am going through. I am tired of letting this fat take over my life to where I stop doing the things I love because either I am so ashamed of what I would look like doing them, or because I just don't have the energy. Its not fun being fat. I never thought I would be this person, but the facts are I AM...and well I just need to do something about it once in for all!!!

Now, whose with me???

We can do this!!!! If we can spend hours on end in front of the televsion, then we should be able to get at least 30 min of exercise in a day. Don't ya agree??

Good luck to all,

    I started seriously in October 2006.
    It's taken some time, with many months not losing, and even gaining 10 pounds one month while on holiday.
    But slow and steady wins the race! emoticon

    I'll do my best to keep on you. Anytime you feel you need a little emoticon let me know. You will find motivating others can help keep yourself motivated. This is not an impossible journey, but it does take time and lots of patience.

    firstly WELCOME TO SP~!! emoticon
    ... I so know what you mean ... I'm at exactly the same point as you.
    I woke up one day thinking ... I do not like what I have become physically.
    I had some friend who used to complain about being plain and not being interesting and you would reach the point of then why not do something~? If it really bothers you so ... go and take a hobby get involved in the community ... try a new style. Then I thought well it's easy to say that but what about myself. It's not like I can't drop the weight right~?
    So a huge attitude check later here I am. Not sitting in a corner complaining and feeling sorry for myself emoticon
    So far so good ...
    Would you like to be a spark buddy of mine~??
    We could get through it together~?
