Obesity hurts my health, injures my ego, short changes my social life, embarrasses my family and myself inwardly, interferes with my options where ever I go, and limits my mobility. I find myself making jokes, laughing a lot, always smiling on the outside, but crying on the inside when it comes to discussing my weight- overloaded- body. I even have to settle for less in my choices of buying new clothes. I don't know how you feel about what your scale tells you but it haunts me.
Welcome to my world of always being fixated on why I can't fit in this world by blending in and not sticking out like a sore thumb. Let's face it after a while anyone who has a lot of weight to lose does a lot of reading and searching for help and answers. Dare I say we know it all? I know what to do to change my body image but I don't always care when It is so overwhelming. Maybe we together can form a emotional support system because we are a minority. We want to be accepted as is if that be our choice, or at least live in a healthier manner and to our fullest life span, here here! By the way did I say hello, I'm glad you'er checking out this site. Looking forward to comments on how you are doing. Good Luck
