I'm starting close-ish to where you did. 392lbs - the heaviest I've ever been. I had gotten down to 355lbs just two years ago - not through anything I changed, but just feeling more positive made me want to do more in general. I had just been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and PCOS, but it was the first time I'd been to see a doctor in over ten years. It was liberating to finally get an official diagnosis for something I knew I'd had for a long time. After medications didn't help as much as I hoped they would, I became depressed again. I felt that all my hopes of feeling better had been dashed and that I would never be able to climb out of the hole I was in. Now, I am heavier than ever and feel worse than ever. But recently, I started trying to think more positively. I honestly think taking a vitamin pack every day, for me, is what's caused this increase in positive thinking and energy. For some people, that might be all they need. I'm not sure if it's enough to get me where I want to be, but for right now, I'm just glad I feel better.
