Hi, my name is Ethel. I am an addict. I am addicted to food, and my mind, body, & soul is seriously out of control. I weigh 322 lbs. at this time. I,m 51 yrs. old and i,m not happy with myself. I KNOW I WANT TO LOSE THIS WEIGHT. And I know that it has to start with me being determined, and willing, having courage , & strength.I don,t want to come on this site appearing like i,m complaining, have self pity, as being lazy, etc. I know I have much work ahead of me. What I want is easier said than did. My mind is telling me one thing, my body is showing & telling me another thing, And my soul is surely crying and telling me yet another something. I,m out of control, and I NEED HELP. I was introduced to this site by my niece, who is a member and is doing very well. I came to this site, & was checking it out, it sparked my interest right away. I,m glad to be a member, Good luck, & GOD bless to everyone

    Hi Ethel

    I just found your SP page. I am so impresded. You know what you want and know how much you need to lose to get to where you want to be. You spelled it all out here on your page to help you remember your goals. Your goals can be reached, you can do this and everyone at SP is so supportive.

    I have only been a member for a month but the love, care and support I have received is what gives me the strength and energy to continue on my journey one day at a time.

    I hope you don't mind if I add you as a friend. Let us know how you are doing.

    Ethel, you are more than welcome! My all time high weight was 316 about five years ago. I lost about 30 pounds on WW then but ended up dropping off the program and stayed around 280's for years. Unfortunately I lost 60 pounds two years ago and then put them back on almost as fast. So don't lose hope. You're off to a wonderful start!
