Don't tell me I'm not FAT!

I know I'm heavier than I used to be, I know I'm older too but I also know that I eat too much. At work all the women are always telling me I'm not fat, that I look fine, that I don't need to cut back on my food intake... stop it! If you are my friend tell me to get moving, to hit the gym, encourage me to loose weight. I pick myself apart a lot and I know I am hard on myself, but you can't miss the fat arms, the huge boobs, and the gut...

I'm almost 50 and I can't continue to look like this. Send me helpful advise if you have any.

Hope to be smaller in a few months

This is now... let's see where I go by November 26th when I actually turn 50.

I got your link to your site from Suzi Blu's Ning. I want to encourage you in your weight loss endeavors. I have lost 80 pounds and 10 sizes since March by daily exercise, and a low carb, high protien w/veggies diet. I cut out all soda and drink a lot of water. If you're interested in knowing more of what my new "lifestyle" is like for food/fitness you can contact me via my blog at or catch me at Ning user name TammysStudio. =) Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Edie,
Nice to meet you; been making some very nice new friends in Suzi's class and now you.
I'm way over weight {30-40} and take water and heart pills plus Nexium. Just turned 51 in March and I think if I lost the weight and started exercising...i.e., walking the poor dog we both would benefit.My husband also needs to shed some pounds,more for health than cosmetics but that would be a bonus for all of us.
Anyway, Tammy's comment sounds intriguing; I'll have to check it out. Maybe some of us can help each other beat the chubby blues. Again nice to meet you.
