Hi there, I just joined this group and I just set my first goal tonight to begin a LONG journey to get out of this trapped body that I am in. I am 36 years old and I weigh 320 pounds. I know that I cannot do this alone so with the help of those that know how I feel and the good Lord above I believe that I can make the impossible happen. In my mind before, I just accepted the way that I am. I felt there was no hope for me, I am too far gone. Then the other night, my husband and I ordered pizza with cinnimon sticks, I ate so much that I was gasping for air, I was miserable even into the next day. I decided then that I would never do that again. SO here I am. I have set my first of many goals. My first goal is to lose 20 pounds by the end of August. We'll go from there once I get there. I hope that I can new friends here and get some encouraegment and hopefully be an encouragement to those that start after I do. Thanks and God bless you.

Hi Tina, Welcome!! I think this is a great site for offering support and encouragement, especially on the blogs. I know for myself the change has to come first in my mind... as long as I believed it was impossible, I never started. Congratulations on starting your journey! Remember that God can do exceedingly abundantly ABOVE all that we could think or even IMAGINE.... so you don't even have to be able to imagine doing this on your own power or by yourself. Or technically even be able to imagine the wonderful end results. I practice turning the whole process over to God and pray that I will do His will, not mine. That's really helped me not become obsessed (which I'm very prone to do.) You are not alone on the journey! (And I don't just mean God... now I mean the wonderful extrapounds friends, too!  )

Aww. thanks LizzieRuth. I really like the site so far. I love all the tools to track my success and the support groups. I will take your advice and pray and give this to God. I do with everything else why not this too? It is his temple so I know that it is in his will for it to be healthy. So here I go. I am ready to do this once and for all. No starting and stopping and starting over again. It either is or it isn't.

I am so glad to have found a place to connect with other Christians who struggle as I have. I am endeavoring to create a live book-study of Think and Grow Thin..
God's best blessings to you,
