I Wish To Be A Butterfly

*Waves* Hi Everyone!

I am Angela, 41 years old and weigh in at 342.2 lbs on a 5í3Ē frame. I am here to learn how to live life differently, learn to eat for living not for comfort and to make a few friends along the way.

Right now in my life, I cannot walk more than 10 minutes without being terribly winded to the point of almost gasping for breath(lung infection recently hasnít completely healed) and my body physically aching. It makes me want to cry because a year ...
*Waves* Hi Everyone!

I am Angela, 41 years old and weigh in at 342.2 lbs on a 5í3Ē frame. I am here to learn how to live life differently, learn to eat for living not for comfort and to make a few friends along the way.

Right now in my life, I cannot walk more than 10 minutes without being terribly winded to the point of almost gasping for breath(lung infection recently hasnít completely healed) and my body physically aching. It makes me want to cry because a year ago, I wasnít this bad off. Two years ago, I was a very healthy 250 lbs. Yes, that sounds weird but it was true! I got hurt in November of 2012(torn rotator cuff and deltoid muscle) and after two surgeries in 2012, everything went down hill! I gained and gained until I have gained 92 lbs in a year and a half. It makes me ashamed, sad and very concerned for my heath! I realize that if I donít get this weight off, I will end up hospitalized, bed ridden or worse.

Mentally, I am at a great point in my life! I have dealt with a lot of things this past year and my mind has been clear and happy most of 2013! I have had a very rough life from childhood (some chosen, some not) and it was very difficult to learn that it was okay to be happy! Now that I understand that, I feel that I can accomplish anything! This will be the hardest, yet greatest accomplishment of my life when I lose this weight! I have goals, dreams and plans that cannot be accomplished right now because of my weight and I want to get these things done this year!

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
