Where to start? I have been overweight all my adult life and with the weight came my major health problem- Hypertension. I am currently taking 4 different medications just to maintain my blood pressure . I have always worked stressful jobs and been in somewhat stressful relationship. I have found that when you are alone and there is no-one to talk to, food has been my companion along with the television. My wake up call came when my best friend got married a couple of years ago . I was asked to be in her wedding and at the last minute, I was told due to my weight, there would be a "slight change in my dress". Not wanting to ruin her day, I agreed with the changes and I also stuck out from everyone else. It's been so long since I could cross my legs and sit comfortablly in a movie theater seat. Being in the professional field of social services, I'm constantly in the public eye. I try to find clothing to hide the buldges and be comfortable at the same time. Sometimes just finding an outfit can be a challenge itself.
