Big Boned Woman

I have been overweight ever since I was in high school. I am over 300 pounds. I know I need to lose weight but we you are over 40 it isn't easy to do. My husband said that I was sexy and beautiful just the way I was so I am not really worried about it. I know that I need to lose weight for my health. I told my husband that I wanted to start walking 30 minutes every day.  well thats all for now.

Nothing wrong with being over 300 pounds. I'd be in heaven if I weighed over 300 pounds! :)

I am also overweight but am over 50. It is very hard to lose at this stage of the game but it can be done. I just have to get started again. The first of last year I went on a website that I don't remember the name of at this time but started watching what I ate and started walking. I lost 27 pounds by counting my calories which was a pain but it worked. Later on in the year my father in law got really bad and passed away and that changed everything. I have now gained back all the weight plus some and need to get it off again. I am 56 yrs old an weigh in the neighborhood of 265 or more. <br />
I am going to be starting a new regimen soon so if you need any help or want to talk let me know. Will be glad to talk to ya or help. <br />
Good luck.

I am pretty much in the same boat you are. <br />

My boyfriend says he loves me and thinks Im sexy the way I am but I think I would feel better about myself if I did something about my weight, plus it would better my health.<br />
