Hi my name is Kelly and I am 37 yr mother of 2 beautiful children; a 10 yr old girl and a 8 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.

Hi my name is Kelly and I am 37 yr mother of 2 beautiful children; a 10 yr old girl and a 8 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 recent "marriage" weight gain of 20 lbs. 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....

That would be great to meet up for a class! I'm trying to surround myself with people that work out on a regular basis. I like to work out with others more than I like to work out alone. What kind of class would you like to take? I went and took yoga sculpt last night. I've wanted to get into spinning and do more strength classes. My ultimate goal is to train for events like triathalon, marithon. (maybe just a mini tri or a half marithon) Have you ever considered training for events?

thank you for your kind and supportive comment on my blog. I remember being a control freak as young as 5...........drove my poor mother crazy with "but what if mommy, what if?" (I think she used to call me chicken little LOL). I wish I could just learn to let go and relax. Heck, I'm a child of the 60's, you would think I would be as mellow as you get.

Sounds like your wedding plans are all coming along.........how exciting!

HUGS emoticon

Thank you so much for your support on my blog. I am sure it is completely different once actually doing it on my own.

The bad part is that he isn't home at night with us. Ever. He works until 1am so we are sleeping when he gets home. When he is home during the day he chooses to bring the boys to daycare so he can have his "me" time and workout or play ball everyday. He has the option of being with the boys more, not necessarily me, but at least the kids he could, but he chooses not to. Its frustrating.

Thanks again for the support. Whatever the result I am trusting that it will be what's meant to be.
