> Ah, Jane,

Continue to post anyway, I'm not asking you to censor yourself; I'm just expressing what it did to me to read it. I am fat and ugly. And I'm getting orthodontic braces next week too. lololol ! It's true. I have to laugh at it all otherwise I'll cry.

Hello Sid and Jane

I didn't mean to give the wrong impression. I am very overweight 5'2" 182 lbs. I just felt that I recently learned that being active might be helpful. I don't condone dieting because it never works. I have found that walking (which is what I started with) made a difference. At this point I am just hoping to keep up my activity and strengthen my physical body -- so perhaps I can be healthier. With my depression I tend to do nothing--lie around and sleep or cry-so I tried this hoping to help the depression too. I do agree that one should not be hung up on body image, however, it makes sense to try and get healthier physically as that may also help with the emotional state.

Jane, don't feel bad about the post -- I think you were just putting out a question in hopes for suggestions for yourself. Keep trying -- it does help.
