I am 26yrs old, 5'8" and a horrible weight of 260lbs. I lost my job 5 months ago and have gained 50 lbs in the last 5 months. It is terrible I know. My 7 yr old has started making fun of how fat mom is. :'( It's so depressing. I have never been thin in my life and I just wish I knew what it felt like to be fit and pretty. I just need the encouragement. I don't have a get up and go. Please no mean comments.

First off sorry for your tough times being laid off is the worst...secondly kids are kids my 7year old like to make fun of "mommies big butt" but doesn't mean any harm just being a kid....you are beautiful never let anyone tell you different...now i'm no workout pro but I would like to not tell you but ask you to take things slow if you try to make a bunch of changes at once your going to over load and that might cause you to give up....so look through and find a couple 10min workouts that you are comfortable doing...

I'm sorry, i know first hand how hard it is when your own family makes fun of your weight. Dont let it get you down, but movitivate you to lose weight. Its hard work, but just start by walking. You'd be surprised at how a walk can make you feel better. I pray that God will help and comfort you.
