Today I came to a realization, how much stress being overweight, I'm causing myself. Simple everyday things are not simple everyday things for me. I constantly have to be concerned about everything around me, such as, making sure a chair will hold me or if if its too low, will I be able to get up. Even using the toilet away from home, many are so low and even the clean up afterwards. Many times I want to go out, but I choose to stay home cause I dont want to be in the way of others or the surroundings are uncomfortable for me, cant get on the ground or sit on the bences, cant walk for long distances or stand too long and then to put up with the stares. These are simple things for most people and they dont understand really when you try to explain, so you just be quiet and let them assume whatever, but that also is a stress. Right now, I feel better and less stress, so thank you sparkpeople for letting me vent.

    Oh honey, I hear you. I could've written this blog myself. Being very overweight brings with it a whole set of problems that most thinner people aren't even aware exist. All of the things you've mentioned are probably the biggest factor in keeping me on track. I want SO MUCH not to have to worry about chairs, distances, stairs, STARES, etc. These things all belong to the realm of the obese--and I want to get the heck out of that kingdom...and I want you to come with me :)

    We can get this weight off. Honest. It takes, time, planning, faith, and perseverance, but it certainly, and without a doubt can be done. I'm going to do it, and I know you will too!
