This is me!

I am a busy wife, mom of 2, and a middle school teacher. I have always struggled with food...I like to eat and often find myself eating at times I know I am not hungry. I am a very emotional eater. I do not like to exercise, but once I get started I seem to enjoy it more. It's getting up off the couch that is the hardest step for me!

I have been having trouble with my eyes, and when I finally went to the doctor, I was passed from specialist to specialist. I ended up in the ER underoing a battery of tests - some not so pleasant - until I was diagnosed with pseudotumor. This is pressure on the brain caused by too much spinal/brain fluid, caused by excessive weight. It acts like a brain tumor. The best relief is to lose weight. If I don't, I could go blind. So that is my new motivation!

You are so beautiful, and you have such a beautiful family as well! I know what it is like to be an emotional eater, I am one too. Let's help each other get back on track and see who can be the biggest loser! :D

I work in the school system as well as a consultant for speech language and behavioral students. I hear you when you talk about how difficult it is to eat healthy and be a working mom. Hopefully we can all gain a little inspiration from each other :)
