Hi! My name is Sue, and I'm trying to stay motivated to eat in a healthy way, overcome my problem of binge eating, and exercise. I'm an enthusiastic gardener and live in Coastal Maine.

My doctor told me this morning in no uncertain terms that I need to lose weight because of shortness of breath. Today I feel the way I felt 27 years ago when I finally got sick enough of drinking to quit. I'm scared that I'll fail (again) in my weight-loss quest, but I also really want the ...
Hi! My name is Sue, and I'm trying to stay motivated to eat in a healthy way, overcome my problem of binge eating, and exercise. I'm an enthusiastic gardener and live in Coastal Maine.

My doctor told me this morning in no uncertain terms that I need to lose weight because of shortness of breath. Today I feel the way I felt 27 years ago when I finally got sick enough of drinking to quit. I'm scared that I'll fail (again) in my weight-loss quest, but I also really want the benefits I'll get from it.

Update: Now I've been diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus caused by longterm acid reflux. Since that can be a precancerous condition, it's all the more important for me to get to a healthy weight.

Recommitting!

Hi again, Thanks for the comments. I never tried the fast track if it is easier than the other I will try it tonight. I posted another thread and of course I could not do a sticky but I have found a lady in caribou and also a lady who was on this team a while ago MRSJACQUES she is in Brunswick and she likes to walk we might walk together in Brunswick or the rail trail. I wish we could be in touch with others but no-one seems to be doing much with our team. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
