....the point when you think 'what the heck have i done to myself?' I reached that point a couple of weeks ago. Like a previous member story i had severe chest pains. I took myself to the doctor and after a barage of tests was relieved to find i was not going to keel over. In fact apart from the excess 40kg's i carry around i am perfectly healthy
Then i faced the shock...shock over the fact that i thought i might be having a heart attack at 32, and even worse....was not suprised i might be having a heart attack!! (really, that is sad isn't it). The following week it came to me that mabey i shouldn't be waiting till i actually am ill to do something about it and attack the problem while i am healthy. So, on the weekend i ate my last 'crap' foods and have put the alcohol aside until i feel able to control myself.
Ive been large for such a long time now...i can't imagine what i will look like when i reach the end, but like everyone, i visualise the reward of buying dressess off the rack and enjoying a better quality of life with my husband and children.
Good luck to all on their journey and i will report in at the end.
