I injured my back at work while helping a patient- I was a nurse but cannot work as a nurse due to my back injury & chronic back pain. It's made me sad. I can't do the things I used to do.

  8. My husband and I met in 2004, I weighed 120 pounds. I was thin happy and healthy. I gained weight slowly over the following 4 years when my husband and I were married in 2008 I weighed 160 but I didn't think I was unhealthy by 2009 after I had my first child I was insecure at a weight of 180 pounds I lost some weight on my own and got back down to 165 but over the following years 4 years I weight creeped back up on me in 2013 after having my second child I weighed 240 pounds. That number has changed everything for me I became depressed I didn't want to work out because I'm scared people will look at me in disgust and my insecurities are ruining my marriage. For the last 7 years I worked behind a desk and that brought my weight up to 280 in march of 2017. I need help and motivation and mentoring that I just can't get at home. I am scared for my kids because the other day my son said to me mom, when I grow up I want to be fat really huge mom. That broke my heart how can I explaine to him that it's not healthy yet stay this way. I can't do this on my own if I could have the help and guidance of a professional who could also help me teach my children about healthy living but show my kids that I can accomplish my dream of being fit and active and someday helping others do the same. Please help me get my confidence and my health back.

  9. My name is Destiny ima mother of 3 beautiful girls under the ages if six. A working mother..a recovering addict. A women in her early thirties who is itleast 60 pounds overweight. Unhappy unhealthy…suffers from anxiety. N ptsd. I need help can't do this on my own.

  10. I don't even know why I'm writing this. I kinda feel stupid to be honest. But hey, I guess it doesn't hurt to try. I just turned 31 on July 24th. I spent my birthday at the doctors. Getting treated and put on medications for severe anxiety and depression. I was put on the scale and it read 170, in the doctors own words, I was told I was not just over weight but that i was obese. It might not be as much as others who probably deserve the help more than I do, but either way, it was a hard to see and hear. I'm a really short girl. Like 5ft. So seeing those numbers were mind blowing. I guess my depression, anxiety and weight gain goes back to traumatic experiences I had as a child thay were never delt with. I'm a stay at home mom, I have 5 children, all who i homeschool. My last two were twins, so they took and still take a pretty good amount of my energy if not all of it. My diet consists of literally Redbull and junk food since I'm constantly trying to keep up with them, feeding them, teaching, playing with them. Just everything. I really have no time to sit down and eat most of the times. About a year ago I lost my license due to fainting while driving. Thankfully it was just my self and husband in the vehicle at the time. I was checked for everything heart related or blood clots that could have caused it but was found with nothing. Doctors say fainting is due to my anxiety and my stress. Turns out it's one of the many symptoms. I'm stressed because of my weight but with my life I honestly don't know how to kick start it. My weight is effecting me in so many ways. My husband of 13 years and I are on the verge of getting a divorce because of me. I dont feel comfortable with my self let alone let anyone look at me or touch me. We have been separated for over 3 years now. He wants to work things out but I don't know. I guess my thoughts are if you can't love yourself, how could anyone els. You get me. I feel useless. I hate how I feel and how I look. I have a gym membership I never use. I wouldn't even know how to use anything besides the treadmill. I don't even know what else to say. I seriously just hate life right now. I feel disgusting. Giving up just seems so much easier.

  11. Hi, my name is Grace. I'm 31 yrs old, 5.10 in hight, now 312lbs, married with 2 kids, 11 and 4 years old. I haven't been obese all my life. I was actually quit skinny all my childhood up until age 19. I got pregnant with my son. Gained some weight, and lost a lot of it again. Then few years after gained a lot more because of being stressed and more verbally abused from my first husband. I've struggle with weight lost, going up and down. I weighed about 268 lbs before getting pregnant with my daughter, from my lovely second husband. I gained quit a bit during that pregnancy and have been struggling since to loose weight. My physician told me to eat healthy, exercise more and try working a day shift job, as I had been working night shift all those years. My recent lab test shows that I'm at a pre-diabetic stage and I would give everything I've got in me to go back to been healthier to do more with my family, enjoy life more. I have a lot of love and support from my husband and I'm very happy, but would love to feel lighter and less tired. Having this opportunity will definitely be a blessing to me and my family.
    Thank you for your consideration!

They are ready to add another little one to their beautiful family but my sister in law wants to get her weight and health in check. She is already scared of being strong and healthy for her family of three. I truly be that if Christine had guidance from every aspect of weight loss journey through nutrition and fitness she WILL succeed.

I have struggled with my wieght for as long as I could remember and it truly scares me that I am almost 200 pounds. My freshman year of college is when my weight got completely out of control. I am the oldest of three girls being raised by a single mom…you can say money is tight. I took a year off of school so I can work and help out my mom as much as I can. Other than my mom, I am the only other person working a full time job. I have no time to ever really focus on my health, physically and mentally. Being on the go all the time I tend to grab the quick and easy meals… all that arent great for me. Diabetes and high blood pressure run on both sides of my family. About four people in my family currently have diabetes. I do not want to be another statistic. I am ready to push my self to limits my body has never been pushed. Im ready to shead the pounds and keep them off. I want to finally after 19 years feel comfortable in my own skin. I am ready to be vulnerable and show people that they can be their better selves. Im ready to show MYSELF that I can be a better me. This opportunity would be one of the biggest blessings I could receive.

Going from one eating disorder to another, I think my metabolism has finally given up on me. Due to my weight I now have type II diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, joint and muscle pain, and fertility issues. My husband and I are currently trying to conceive and my weight is preventing me from doing so. I want to do this not only for me, but for us as a couple and for my daughter. I want to be a good example for her. I have recently lost 60 pounds and I am stuck. And because I got stuck….I cheated and now I cannot seem to get back into the whole weight loss process. I feel like this is my last hope. I need help, as does my husband. We enable each other and it needs to stop. Please help US to be the person on the outside that we feel we could be in the inside. Thank you.

  43. Hi I'm 32 and the mother to two amazing kids. I had a rough childhood. My mother was a single mom with 3 girls one of which has significant disabilities. She tried her best to make sure we were all taken care of but we ended up moving a lot due to being evicted. She got into a relationship with a cop when I was in 4th grade who abused. My younger sister and myself. He then tried to kill our mother. We moved in with my grandmother and things got better. I had my daughter at 20 and her father didn't stick around. She ended up having very significant disabilities due to having Joubert Syndrome which is a genetic disorder that effects the cerebellum. We struggled for a few years with me trying to go to college and being there for my little girl. We met my future husband when she was 2 and welcomed her little brother a year later he was perfect. But the stress of raising two kids with out help as my boyfriend lived in Massachusetts and I lived in Florida took a toll. I suffered severe depression after the birth of my son. I gained a lot of weight. I currently weigh 276 pounds I'm 5'2 and I'm struggling to have the energy for my kids. Please help me
