I weigh a god-awful amount. I have my reasons and excuses, but- holy crap. I look as bad as I feel. Thing is, I've started this journey before. Losing weight is hard. And I'm your typical case for morbid obesity; grown up on Mickey D's and never ate my veggies, not a huge fan of exercising. All the components for health disaster.. and when you're younger health just isn't at the forefront of your mind.
I've lost some weight though. :)
