Today I found this on line am 320 lbs and feel like I am dying each day. Ten years ago I didn't care and truthfully thought I wouldn't be here by now. I go to work, get dinner eat and go to bed. I have a tread mill and I am starting back on it, I hurt my knee during Christmas and am just now able to walk again without extreme pain. Going to see my daughter graduate this week and hoping to keep up walking up and down the hills and not get criticized so much I go into a depression--everyone has something to say about how big I have gotten over the years. I really want to feel better, at least to be able to walk from parking lot into work and not be out of breath. I was doing well from June til December last year when I fell. Ready to try again and monitor what I eat. Any suggestions on how to start small steps and build up?View Thread
