Hi all. I am 31 and weighed 262 before Christmas. I am down to 245 as of now. I have just joined the YMCA with my sister, who is also struggling with her weight. It has been an ongoing battle for years for both of us. My goal weight is 140, maybe 135. I clearly have a long journey ahead of me. For the first time in my life, I actually have hope and the confidence to know I can do this! I have to do it....for me, for my daughter, for my husband. I want to be healthy and live a long life with my family. I want to walk up the stairs without being out of breath. I want to be able to do everyday tasks without feeling like I have no energy. I am glad to have found this community for support and discussion. If anyone has any tips or pointers, they would be much appreciated.View Thread
