Finishing the journey, I got lost on the way!

I am 54 and single. I wasn't a heavy child. I didn't gain weight until I hit puberty. And then I gained and gained. I spent most of my adult life overweight. I did lose over 100, two different times in the last 12 years only to regain most of it both times. I have a huge problem with sugar. I am an addict, a Sugar Addict!!

I had gastric bypass surgery in 2005 and lost just over 100 pounds in just a year, not getting to my goal weight before regaining weight. I am an emotional eater.

emoticon I read that half of all people who have GBS regain all the weight again after two years, so you aren't alone. What the YOUTUBE documentary "THE WEIGHT OF THE NATION" as it has four parts. Very good series.

Welcome to the EE team!!

I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!!

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!

~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!
