Hello, I just joined today. I have tried so many diets and seem to fail at everything I try. I battle with depression and anxiety on a daily basis, and i'm just having trouble finding my strength to lose this weight. A little about myself, I am a 26 year old mom, I have a 5 year old son who was just diagnosed with classic Autism, so i'm pretty stressed out all day long. My son is a very picky eater, so I find myself just eating whatever I can grab in the kitchen "which is unhealthy kid food" because I am exhausted, I have always been a "fat" kid. My whole life. I mean in my late teens and early twenties I was able to manage my weight to around the 165 mark, but since I got pregnant with my son, I gained 80 pounds with my pregnancy alone, and just kept gaining since then, I now weigh 260 according the scale yesterday. I am just needing some friends, people who are going through the same things as me, people to be there and keep me motivated. I have such low self esteem, that I always talk down to myself, I need positive reinforcement. I have my spouse, we have been married for 7 years, and they are very supportive of me, but it's just not the same, I need people who are currently in the same boat as me, as my spouse is skinny as a rail...lol So I hope to meet some great people, thanks so much for reading this and have a great day.
