Was this past February, I am 5'10 and at my heaviest was 344 lbs, and today weighed in at 236! I still have a little over 70 lbs to go, but feel hopeful when I think to the future..
The best way that I was able to focus my emotions was to reach out to people, especially in this group, for advice, wisdom and friendship. I was scared too, I think most of us are as we start down this road..
I have no regrets and although this is a complete lifestyle change, things are so much better for me now. I don't miss that old way of life anymore! But beware, that you may go through a mourning period right after.
And wonder what the heck you just did to yourself. Don't worry it's normal. Just try to keep in mind that none of us went home from.

In 2 weeks it just will never happens and it is going to have to be moved out because of insurance. So good so I can mull everything over more. There other part of me is like let's go 2 weeks can't come soon enough. I better get approval so I can get this party started..
Either way I wish I could just know!! But I am definitely scared as well. Thank goodness for this new family I found. Everyone is just so incredibly wonderful!..
Its like the hokey pokey one foot in and one foot out! But on the other hand Ita like I know that my eating habits wont change wothout this, this is the tool to save my life and thats whsat keeps me going. I start my fatty liver Medifast diet tomorrow and was just having a small goodby party with my friends. It has really helped. It felt like a funeral but in a good way if that makes sense. I let my eating balloon go today with the wind at sunset and I feel a new me already! Try it even with only a close friend if you can but it really helps. Buy a yellow balloon and let it go with the sunset and it's like a goodbuy forever :)..
