The prospect of taking control of my weight and my eating habits is quite terrifying. After being in a 10 year marriage full of depression and self-doubt I awoke to find myself significantly overweight. I gained quite a bit of weight with each of my 2 children and never really lost any of it. The marriage ended 4 years ago. I've achieved so may things personally since then but overcoming obesity is not one of them. I'm now in a healthy relationship and engaged to be married in October. I would love to look beautiful in a wedding dress, but even more, I would love to be healthy and to be able to live my life to the fullest. I'm incredibly self-reliant and feel there isn't anything I can't overcome...but I've realized maybe reaching out to others for support is the piece I've been missing.View Thread
