I noticed there haven't been much activity from this group and I find that surprising but not surprising. With the rise of obesity in the US, there should always be a discussion on how to shed the extra pounds. Folks gain weight for different reasons and I would like to share mine with you. Afterwards, I'm hoping that someone will give good advice on how to take some of this buredon off me. And it's going to be a long, tormenting journey because not only am I a big girl, I am now living with Leukemia. So as motivated as I am, I can't do no more than my cancer will allow me. Well, first of all, I come from a family of large folks. That shouldn't make a difference but it does when I need an excuse to eat that 3rd piece of fried chicken breast. And I learned how to cook at an early age. That's because I was plump as a child and it was easier to be in the kitchen helping make cake rather than being outside with the kids playing hopscotch. But as I got older and interested in boys, my weight was important to me. I wanted to look pretty. Then as a woman, I wanted to look sexy. By the time I was 34, I was a tall, thick sexy woman. Then I moved down south; originally from New York. I met a man who was big but not overly fat. Our bodies complimented each other. After a couple of home cooked meals, this man decided he wanted to make me his woman and I accepted. Little did I know that my future would consist of eating alot of meat. This man could put away 4 porkchops in one sitting. I began to try to keep up with him and the weight took on a life of its own. Before you know it, I was 300 and miserable. So miserable, that I used more food to punish myself for getting fat. And as we all know, with unwanted weight comes depression and anxiety and the fear of being unwanted by the opposite sex. Sounds like your story. Hit me back and tell me how you gained your weight. Maybe we can motivate each other to begin the new journey of taking control of our lives and start shedding all those pork chops!
