Hi my name is Kelly and I am 39 yr mother of 2 beautiful children; a 12 yr old girl and a 10 yr old son. I marred my prince charming on January 14th, 2011.

I have never been skinny by society standards, but never extremly over weight either. In HS I was involved in Danceline and regular dance and was average size of 130-135. Went to college where I gained the freshman twenty, lost the weight and after my first marriage gained some weight putting me at about 160 lbs.

I became interested in losing weight after my 2nd child was born and I reached 183lbs, so I joined a gym and started to lose some weight by going 3x a week; which helped me lose about 20-25lbs. However; after an unexpected divorce from my HS sweetheart of 15 years I discovered that could suppress all my anger and feelings thru purging and excessive exercise. In less then 2 months, I lost an additional 30 lbs. In '07 I went through an outpatient program for eating disorders, but I still struggle with relapses and after my last major relapse got to my lowest weight of 128lbs with 11% body fat in November 2008. I am determined to over come this disease and stop it before my daughter picks up on any of these destructive beahviors, because I am not sure I could handle watching her go through this horrible disease or live with the guilt that she learned it from me.

I used to be an exercise fanatic after my divorce as a way for me to deal with my stress and emotions, but within the past year I had a total burnout and now find it a struggle to just go to the gym everyday at lunch for maintenance. I am trying to find additional exercise the fun way now through playing with my kids, walking the dog or playing on my Kickball & Broomball teams.

I am currently working on getting off my "marriage" weight gain of 40 lbs in just 4 short years all while working with my Dr. to determine if I have a medical condition causing the weight gain since I still exercise frequently; looking into the possibility of pre-menopause & thyroid issues. Dieting for a person with ED is never easy, but with the continued support from my Hubby I vow to do this the healthy way....

    I hope things are going well for you and hope you have a relaxing (and not stressful or destructive) time at your cabin! I know it's hard to do, but try talking to your hubby...he's probably just scared and doesn't know what to do. My own hubs gets really distant and defensive when I revert to unhealthy habits...but he always tells me later that it just makes him afraid he's going to lose me to it all again.

    I am so not trying to be nosy, I swear! I just want to offer my support and send you some love! I will be sending good thoughts your way!
