ACTIVE IN 2008

one of my goals in 2008 is to be an active member of this community, i think its great to have friends online that know what u are going through, i have been very antisocial and dont have many friends any more, i have always put it down to concentrating on my career and my husband but i realy think it has alot to do with my weight, i realy dont want to go out looking the way i do and even when i do go out i spend forever in my bedroom haveing a mental breakdown about clothes before i go so 2008 is also going to be about being more social, losing weight to be healthy and be happy with myself and realy just trying to have more fun in life, im going to be 22 in 2 months and although getting my career on track is very important to me, i dont want to wake up in 10 years and discover that i wasted youth being unhappy, antisocial and overweight.

Small milestone
I can understand. I am not very social either, and my escalating weight also fed into that in my 20s. I remember ranting every time I had to go to a special function on the lack of wardrobe that I had, but not really wanting to buy clothes.

I found if you can make the smaller milestones, you naturally want to tell someone, or you tend to get compliments from work colleagues. This has boosted my confidence in social circles, and is starting to break the habit.

I hope you do well.

I was at the same spot for too many years. I let my weight stop me from being social and doing things I love. I've always been an outdoorsy girl but I thought "Fat people can't be outdoorsy". I really regret all those years I spent on the couch feeling sorry for myself.

Join online communities that you share a passion with. I belong to a lot of dog communities :D And from there I learned the lingo, educated myself and therefore when I encountered other dog lovers IRL we had a lot to talk about.

EXCELLENT goals. Make gradual changes and you can do it!
