So new to such an old thing
Hi everyone, I have been reading from this site for a long time now. Only today have I decided its time to nip this in the butt. I'm 25, 237 lbs. I've always been heavy except for a year in high school where I was successful doing a low carb diet. Now that I've gotten older, had a child (5 yrs old), I realize even trying an Adkins like approach triggers cravings. I'm at the heaviest I've ever been. I'm unhappy and unhealthy. I want an amazing life. I want to run around and play with my son. I also want a second child. Physically I know I'm not ready and it didn't sink in until my boyfriend looked at me and said 'I don't want you to die' my family has a serious case of bad health problems. He is at a stand still with having a second child until I get healthy. It broke me to hear him out. It breaks me to know I'm letting my son down and even more so myself. Sorry for babbling! Any tips, pointers, info, even good info on how to navigate this site along with any others you guys find helpful would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
