I am considering joining a gym. It is time to get heathier and take some weight off. I am 35 and the heaviest I have ever been. I am shocked a little every time I weigh. I see the numbers but in my head I still see myself as being just a little chubby. Reverse anorexia-I look in the mirror and see a skinny person. PITIFUL. The scale and my measurements don't lie though, I am double what I used to be.

I don't have any huge goals-a size or amt of pounds I want to lose-but I long to be able to wear clothes again. By that, I mean just go to the store and buy something pretty. Not throw on the tents they sell for fat people. Plus size clothing is pitiful unless you are shelling out the big money (And of course, I am not) at the fancy schmancy stores.

Wish me well, I will keep you posted on any progress I make. No diet, just eating heathier. Well maybe weight watchers since it is not really a diet-but a smart plan for eating. I wonder how many points a milky way egg is?

I'm making a point to post on your site since you posted on mine. I wish you the best of luck and want you to know that you are always invited to our aerobics class. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30pm at the church. I'm not a mean teacher, but I will make you sweat. It's a great group of ladies who don't care what you wear, how much you weigh or how well you move. They're just there for the exercise and the fellowship. However, you must be prepared to discuss men, menopause and aging bodies. I also promise not to make you do pelvic thrusts when the finance committee is meeting in the next room. Sorry, Hula Girl has to post this anonymously because word verification isn't cooperatig.

You can do it, girl! I'm on a weight loss quest myself. I've lost 41 pounds, and I'm finally in regular size clothes (as opposed to muumuu sizes). I've still got 55 to go, and the past couple of days have not been the best, but we can do this--right?!
