Yesterday I thought I might be having a heart attack. My heart was racing. I felt dizzy. I felt shaky. I felt scared. I was at work. Can you imagine being the fat waitress having a heart attack at work? The cliché. The horror. Not to mention if I died. What if I died? What if as I near 300 pounds I dropped dead and abandoned my girls because I am addicted to food? What is wrong with me? I know everything I NEED to do to lose weight but when does it become a priority? I have no clue. I am not sorry I am fat I just need to be less fat. I need to be a bit healthier.

    We all have to find that one thing which will motivate us to make a change. There is nothing "wrong" with you. You were correct when you said you are addicted to food. The food industry is highly invested in making sure we get "hooked" and stay "hooked". There is help if you are committed to changing. Hope what almost happened to you will serve as a "wake-up" call. Don't give up.

    Blessings

    I also had to take an ambulance ride when I had really terrible chest pains. I was with my husband in a store at the time. It felt just like a heart attack. I was not having one though. I had reflex disease. I was so over weight and out of shape, not much has changed, I am still over weight, considered obese. I had been to two funerals that week, and I really think that's why I was going through this at that time. I am still trying to make changes and it took me a while to start. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I'm glad you weren't having a heart attack... Some people do die from obesity without having this realization. So we are on the right track to already have this foresight that if we don't change, the end is closer for us than a fit & healthy person,.
    We just need to stick with it and we will reach our goal sooner than expected.

    I hope you saw a doctor to make sure it wasn't a mild heart-attack or something else. Something you said really stuck with me: "What if as I near 300 pounds I dropped dead and abandoned my girls because I am addicted to food?" It's a reminder that my own food addiction must always be kept in check for so many reasons including wanting to be alive for my family! Please take care and if you haven't see a doctor, please go. If you can't do it for you, do it for your girls!

    I think most all of us have "the head knowledge" of what we need to do to lose weight, but it is hard work to transfer the knowledge to actually doing the work. I feel like I'm at that point right now and it is really hard.
