I have pretty much been sedentary for 2 years now, so I have to start out small. I have really bad social anxiety, so I bought a treadmill to exercise at home with, along with weights and "Walk Away the Pounds" DVDs. Also, I'm making healthier food choices, and learning to cook for myself so I know what is in the food that I'm eating.
I'm a college junior from central PA. I struggle with major depression and bulimia, but I am getting professional help. Oh, and I LOVE Harry Potter and cats!!
Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
I see that you joined the Done Being the Fat Girl team! Welcome! My long-standing tradition is to serenade you with my Done Karaoke version of a song! Sing along if you can, to the tune of Katy Perry's Firework:
Doney you're a firework!! Come on let your colors burst Make 'em go "Do-oo-uhn!" You're gonna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own
Done, Done, Done Even brighter than the sun, sun, sun It's always been inside of you, you, you And now it's time to let it through!!
Be sure to comment on the boards often, and get caught up in the excitement! We can't wait to see all you accomplish! :D ~Jocelyn
