I am a 41 year old, native Alabamian. I grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and currently reside in the McCalla area.
I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I was a little overweight in high-school and college, however, I was very active, so I was able to keep my weight in check. Starting putting on weight in college...and the downhill spiral started. I'm not sure how I let myself get so out of control. Its like one day I was a size 10 and the next I was a 22...everything in between is a blur. Well now I've blurred myself to a whopping 240lbs. My self esteem is very low. I don't want to socialize because I feel like I look so bad and just do not fit in. I'm ready for a change, and with God's help, I think I can do this. I want to do this for myself.
