300+ No More
For me, it started when I was much younger. In high school, it was okay that I was the heaviest, as long as I stayed under 200 pounds.
In college, it was okay that I was 200 pounds as long as I didn't become a size 20.
When I was a size 20, it was okay because at least I wasn't 250 pounds.
When I was 250 pounds, it was okay because at least I was lighter than my husband - but I never dared say, "at least I'm not 300 pounds," because by that time, I knew the trend.
This group is for all the men and women out there who have been here or above - for whom 19 days is the beginning of a long and often painful journey, and for those of us who have been putting off the realization that we cannot let this go on forever. This group is for those of us who can shed 50% of our body mass right now and still have some to go to get to an ideal size.
