Cant do this alone

Wanna_be_sexyWanna_be_sexy Posts: 7Member Member Posts: 7Member Member
My name is kathy, I'm 32 and about 100 lbs fluffy. I have type II diabetes, high blood pressure, PCOS, and recently sleep apnea. If that isn't enough to do something, I don't know what is.

I'm lazy and a big slacker. I need friends to stay on me and motivation all around! Please help me!

    Hey, Kathy! My name is Crystal and I'm 65# down, and hopefully will lose another 35 by the end of the year. I also have PCOS and I know the first thing doctors tell you is that it will be very difficult for you to lose weight. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM!! You CAN do this if you want it bad enough.

    You are not alone! We are all here to help encourage each other!! I'll send you a friend request! :flowerforyou:

    Stay positive and know you can do it! I take it one meal at a time - especially at work when there is so much junk floating around. My goal today is to walk on my 15 min. breaks and at least get a 1/2 hour of exercise in. Small goal but totally doable. Keep your chin up. I have like 90lbs to lose myself. :smile:

    You don't have to do this alone.
    Glad you are reaching out to others here on MFP. I have found that this community is very helpful. I love my friends here and they inspire me every day. Since we are already friends why don't you send some friend requests out to some of the people on my list

    Hi Kathy! I'm new here too since last week. 35yrs and I need to lose about 40 lbs. I too have high blood pressure, circulation issues, and a too fast heart rate that I'm on medication. I hope to get off of the medication by losing weight, eating right, and exercising... a lot!

    I will add you as a friend! You can do this!

    You can do it! For me, it's taken a lot to override my desire to go home after work and veg, but I'm doing it! I'm 25 and I need to lose 40-50 pounds. I have only been diagnosed with PCOS and I am hoping to get my weight in control before any more diagnoses are made. I've been here for a while and haven't made any friends yet, but I am more than willing to help motivate anyone who needs it. :)

    Thank you all for such a fast response. I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you! I'm limited to access while at work and most active in the evenings. Here's to a great day, hump day at that! ;)

    welcome to add me! we can get rid of our respective 100lbs together!!

    It'll be hard at first but once you've got going you'll gain so much more energy (especially when you change what you eat like I did) and you'll crave gym days (I do now!) :3

    Hang in there Kathy~ I was on myfitness a year and half ago and did super. Then stress of life got the best of me, moving, family deaths etc.. And gained everything back plus. Im here for your support as well. We can do this.. What is easier for me, is doing the every few hours eating something, so Im never hungry. And I always fill in my dinner first, so I know that I get to eat at the end of a long day. I work from bottom up, instead of breakfast down. lol.. I know weird, but it works for me..
    ♥ Hang in there ♥

    Hi Kathy! I'm 34 and I was about 60lbs too fluffy (working on the last leg). I also had/have a lot of the same health issues you do, but I've reversed a lot of it. (You can check out my profile for info.) Feel free to add me if you want, I would be happy to help motivate. :)
