Hi! My name is Amy. I'm a 37 yr old single mom of a 19 yr old daughter and a 16 yr old son. I never thought of myself as an "emotional eater" until I started to reflect on the reasons I started packing on the pounds. I was always very thin growing up and very active in gymnastics until my daughter was 10. I ended up with a knee injury that required my second knee surgery. I put on 18 lbs from 11/05-4/06. During this time my mother had a heart attack, and a stroke, and fell and broke her foot which required a plate and pins to fix. Things started to look up and I joined weight watchers, & lost 13 lbs, and I thought I could do it on my own, so I quit. Without the support and accountability of weighing in every week, I again packed on the pounds. My heaviest was 155- and at 5"2 it puts a lot of strain on my knees and back. I joined weight watchers again 2/09 and lost 37 lbs. I kept it off until 5/11. We found out my dad had throat/larynx cancer and my world came crashing down. He had his voice box removed in June and started chemo/radiation 5 days a week from August-October. Sitting in hospital waiing rooms for months on end I fed my boredom. Then my daughter left for college in September. I packed on the freshman 15. I'm tired of riding the emotional rollercoaster and making the committment to myself to get healthy.

    Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
