Hi! I am also a 40-something woman who needs to change her life. I am tired of the constant circle of losing, gaining, losing, gaining. I am also hoping to break the code of why I do this to myself. It is great you have wonderful motivation in your daughter. Good luck and hope to hear from you!

Never give up! I think that dropping pounds is the hardest task in the world! However, I feel off this wagon for 3 years and came back and found unbelievable support. I think the most important thing I did was go through my pantry and just tossed out everything that was not good for me (or my husband). I am going to a farm market and buying everything that's fresh right now and we are enjoying huge salads and fresh fruit---a ripe peach is much better for us than a large handful of chocolate chip cookies! Just start with something as easy as getting rid of what you shouldn't have...I know it's hard to throw away perfectly good food. If it's still in the unopened box, I'll bet there's a food pantry around that would love it. Keep plugging along and both you and your daughter will notice the difference. Good luck. Betsyd

Thanks for adding me as a friend. It's never too late for a Mom to model healthy behavior for her children. Sometimes we will do things for others - especially our children - that we wouldn't do for ourselves...let facing these demons be that one thing.
You are brave, you are strong, you can do this!

emoticon I welcome any encouragement, suggestions people have to offer! I am 44, morbidly obese, love hiding behind my size for some reason-really wish I could crack the code. The only flaw in my plan for life long comfort in being overweight is that my 10 year old daughter is following in my footsteps! This has moved me out of my comfort zone and into the action zone. The biggest struggle I am having right now is hanging on to the desperation I have felt. Comfort and complacency seem to cast a shawdow over my absolute brokenness and willingness to explore a whole new world.

Comments are strongly welcomed!
