In 2007, I weighed 317 lbs. I hit rock bottom physically and emotionally. I sought help. Worked the tools provided to me and lost 117 of the 167 I wanted to lose....then life changed. From 2010 to 2015 I said goodbye to 9 family members, my youngest daughter was diagnosed with MS, my middle daughter was diagnosed with Colon Cancer and I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.

I fell apart. Not all at once...gradually....which in some ways is far worse because you don't even realize its happening. I starter working out less, emotional eating and trying to fight back my heart ache on my own. The end result was a 67 lb weight gain, severe physical pain and depression. It's taken me nearly 2 years to come back to Sparkpeople and try again, but I'm here and I'm ready to do the work!

hi mary - thanks for finding me... no wonder my email didn't make it to you. i think my email and sparkpage name are the same - katcleary. yes, i thought it was a good meeting also. i enjoyed talking about the sentences and then writing out some. how are things going with you? i like your status comment - so true!!!!! i'm not even entering meals at this point - altho i want to lose a lot of weight in a month so i probably should be tracking more often and going to the gym would help too. hope you're enjoying the warmer weather. would like to keep in touch.

Hi Mary. Looks like we found one another.
This is all still new to me so bear with me on all the posts, etc.
Good to see you here. Nice to have someone to bounce things off of. :) emoticon
