Having a positive body is a wonderful thing to have, but I am well aware of the risks of being obese into later years. A little exercise never hurt anyone. It's healthy to do, but I diegress. I happened upon the Body Image video by Matt Diaz. While I love the video for what it is and message behind it, it terrified that this might be what I might be heading down this road. Even now, looking at images of people that have gone from obesity to a healthier weight....I am scared. Will my confidence be able to handle something like excess skin without destroying it? <<<Is the current question I have on my mind, but I am already running the risk of diabetes and all the other stuff by being 5'9 300+ lbs. And I don't I can handle too much excess skin before such a downturn occurs. =( What do I do?
