Hi again! I'm not new to Sparkpeople. I am a member since 2007- sometimes more active, sometimes not active at all. This year I decided to take fewer students at home- I am a teacher at night school too- so I can ocus on losing the weight once and for all. Being realistic, I've made myself understand it'll take two years, but this first year is critical. I was bulimic for 20 years. In the worst period I would throw up around 15 times a day. I am now even free of binges- the work I did on Spark previously helped me with that. I 've put on a lot of weight since the first time here but overcoming bulimia was more important. Now I am ready to finally lose the weight.
