I am overweight. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I have lower back problems. I need to lose weight. I have an 8 month old grandson that I would like to get down on the floor to play with. I need to lose weight. I eat a lot of salads and drink a lot of water. But I only eat two meals a day (I tend to skip breakfast), and often times I eat my second meal or an unhealthy snack late at night before going to bed. I do little to no exercise. I know it's serious, but I get discouraged so easily. I tried for years to get the weight off, and when all my effort brought little or no change, I gave up. At least now, I can say I'm overweight for lack of trying. But I have to get serious about it and lose the weight. I don't like what I see when I look in the mirror. There's a slimmer, fitter me inside, and I really do what her to come out.
