Oh My..........we have work to do. I have always been overweight and at times have done some really stupid things to lose weight and they worked. One put me in the hospital with convulsion. I do believe I have lost at least 500 lbs in my life time...........and of course it always comes back. NO NO I do not weight 500 lbs but I am a yo yo weight loss person.
Well now those drug companies put us in a bind, do we want to live, (Prednisone) or be sane (ADs) or do we want to be thin and anxious and depressed.................Tough decision. I mean that seriously as people do look at our physical appearance. AS we get older everything goes south on our bodies and all I wanted was a vacation to Florida.
We are all beautiful people on the inside but what we see in the mirror is what we live with in our minds.
I am so glad you are all getting this out on the table. Let it out............I would have been very surprised to hear someone say, I think I am beautiful, the perfect weight, eat all the right things and I take care of me 100%.
I don't think those people are on this forum. However, for 2009 let us join together and start to learn how we can accept who we are and improve on our health and our weight goals. What we are looking for is to feel good about ourselves.
Bless everyone of you.
Nanners, I am glad for you and I understand the bloated tummy. Would you rent your husband out for the right price.

Lordy, lordy, lordy... What a loaded question Kitt!!! I used to joke around when I was skin and bones ( literally) that there was a 500 lb. woman inside me yelling : LET ME OUT. LET ME OUT!!!Well the joke is on me because when I turned 45 and had what the doctors thought was an MS attack... I was unable to walk etc.. .ended up having to start using a scooter... / and crutches and gained soooo much weight. I don't weigh 500 lbs but I have never been this heavy at 210 lbs ( I'm 5'9'' tall and used to weigh a whopping 110 lbs) I too have a tiny frame so my bones ache all the time from all this excess weight.... and NO I DON"T LIKE THE WAY I LOOK! Someone gives me a compliment and my first response is to ask them if they need glasses.! !!!!! I think its bad enough comparing yourself to others but when you compare yourself to what you USED to look like it is even worse! Must stop doing that.... but oh it is sooo difficult.
