I have been obese for 20 years. 38 years old now. Recently made some changes and am currently 162. thinner than I have ever been. Finding it hard to keep going in the face of tremendous stress and lack of belief in myself. I have no friends or support so am reaching out online for help and advice and to help others as i am doing something right to get this far. I recently completed two 5ks one being a filthy obstacle course. I have never been athletic, so am trying to see myself differently. I have some kind of dismorphic body image. I do not see a difference in my body when I look in the mirror but logically know I've had to buy smaller clothes so it must be true. I do yoga 5 times a week and am considering becoming an instructor.


*** finding great friends here. Bouncing up and down those darn 4 pounds....thanks all for support. Been back on track and down more than those 4 pounds since coming here.

Living in an attitude of gratitude

***got the scale moving again, down to 157. Realizing how close I am getting to goal. Blogging helps. Just popping out whatever is on my mind.

I totally remember you! Congrats on the wedding! Sorry to hear about your medical issues but hopefully being back here will help you heal up and feel strong and healthy again!
The Hen House is still in full swing although I am not sure if we moved to the new board before or after you joined... love to see you there if you want daily support!
