My name is Tiffany. I am 26 years old with 2 children. A year ago I was doing very well with my weight. I was in the process of losing my baby weight in order to look great for my April 2006 wedding. The day after last Christmas 2005, I was hit with the most horrible news I've ever heard. My 16 year old sister was killed in a car accident. I was crushed. I continued to lose weight during the few months following my sister's death. But not in a healthy way by any means. I stopped eating. I wouldn't consider it an eating disorder (anorexia or bulimia). I was emotioinally distraught and when I did eat, I would get sick. Now almost a year later I have regained my appetite, and the weight started coming back on rather quickly. I am dealing with depression in many angles. Depression over my sister's death, depression about money, and to top it all off, depression about my weight. I don't feel like a woman anymore. I've gotten to a point where I don't want to take my clothes off infront of my husband. I'm just embarrassed.
So I decided I needed a change in my life. I sat down and realized that there is nothing I can do to change the situations regarding my sister, or money. Those issues will work themselves out eventually. The only thing I can control right now is my weight. I really feel that if I can lose some weight, and start feeling better about myself, I will have an easier time lifting myself out of the other parts of my depression. I started my diet one week ago. Though I haven't disciplined myself too well asfar as excerisize, I have been very "by the book" about healthy eating. Now 7 days later, I checked the scale and was amazed. I lost 3 pounds...in one week....NO EXCERSIZE!!! I got so excited. Now I will be more strict about working out, because if I can lose 3 pounds in a week without excersize...imagine how well I will do with it. I know it's only 3 pounds so far....but seeing that small difference proves that what I am doing is working. I am so happy for the first time in a long time, and I can't wait to see what the scale says after a months time.

    Hi Tiffany. You are a strong person to go through everything you've endured and still, you aren't giving up. *HUGS* So glad to have found your page. How are you doing on your program? If you need anything, just send a note my way - maybe we can help each other out.

    I too am 26 yrs. old, I haven't been a member long and I am just trying to find a few people to talk too, I guess you could say to be my support online...
    I have been overweight most of my life. It was really after I got married that I really started gaining though. Then of course there was when my daughter was born, that made me put on the pounds, she is 2 yrs. old now and I still have baby fat.... My husband is going in dec. 8th 2006 to have the lap band weight loss surgery done. I am very supportive of him doing this, his weight is worse than mine and its really starting to affect his health. But, now that it is only days away reality has hit me that he eventually will be smaller than me. I know that I need to loose weight, for not just me but for my daughter as well. So to help me a little bit my husband and I have jokingly made it a competition. I'm so afraid of loosing though. I would love to keep in touch with you and your progress and be each others "online support". Until we talk again, may God bless you in many ways, and give you the strength to keep on. Tina

    Wow, you've been through a lot this year! Your attitude is amazing - and you're right! Adding exercise will only make you feel better! Exercise also releases endorphins, so it may help your depression directly. And 3 pounds becomes 4...5...10...then you start realizing you can achieve your long-term goals! Keep at it! You can do it.
