Looking for the support to walk the journey of Life !!!

Hi - My name is Mellissa. I am 46 years old, and the Mother of 2. I have been married for 27 years, to a wonderful man.

Unfortunately, I have struggled with my weight, all of my married life. As well, I have struggled with depression & seriously LOW self-esteem.

I have spent my whole life trying to please everyone else. It is like I always need everyone's approval. In the process of trying to always please everyone else, I have let myself slip into a cocoon, where I now find it very hard to show my true emotions.

I am very self-conscious of my weight & appearance, and always feel like I am - where I shouldn't be.

Over the past 5 years I have been attending WW on & off. My first attempt went very well - I lost 60 lbs. and was looking and feeling better than I had in years.Unfortunately, I have not been able to maintain that loss. I have gained that back and more!! My subsequent attempts have not been near as successful.

I tend to let my emotions rule my life - I really want to become a strong person and be able to stand up for myself & quit letting things get to me so easily, and to quit putting everyone & everything before me..

I am now starting to realize that I need to start pleasing ME First, & the others afterwards. It is probably one of the hardest challenges I have faced in a really long time.

I want to lose my excess weight so that I can start to feel good about myself again. I am hoping that with the loss of the weight I can learn to have more self confidence & become a more outgoing "happy" person. Maybe I have this wrong - Maybe if I could learn to have more self confidence & become a more outgoing "happy" person - I would lose the weight.

Which ever way - I Just want to be happy & healthy again!!!

I am looking for support to help me walk this journey, & I feel like SP is going to be a place I can find that support.

As of today I am recommitting myself to WW & to MYSELF - I know for me - it has worked in the past - I just need to recommit

I have to do this - I can do this - I want to do this & I Will do this.

Remember "Baby Steps"
