    I sent you a friend request too.

    I think most humans feel at least a little awkward a lot of the time. But the internet is a great way to not let being shy get in the way of connecting.

    Good luck with your weight loss. Whatever positive changes you make, no matter how small, are steps in the right direction. Be kind to yourself.

    I am not what you are looking for.

    However, I, too, spent 3 decades failing to lose weight. I, too, was looking at an upcoming 50th birthday. While I did not have a specific goal before the birthday arrived I decided to try and make as much progress as was sensible and sustainable. When I did finally turn 50 I was at a weight I had not seen on the scale since I was a teenager. Still overweight but no longer obese.

    You can do it too. Be kind to yourself. Try and be as happy as you can be each day. You do not need to be perfect you just need to be good enough most days. Time will pass anyway so you might as well spend some of it losing weight.

    Ask for anything you need. Someone here will help.
