Yes, I can!

I never had much of a weight problem until I got Graves Disease (a thyroid disease) in 2000 and soon after, Type 1 diabetes. After having my thyroid removed and starting an insulin injection program, I gained fifty pounds in three months and although I live a relatively healthy lifestyle (whole grains, fresh veggies and fruits, lots of excercise), I still have not been able to take it all off b/c I have become an emotional eater. But I don't care what it takes, I WILL LOSE THE WEIGHT!!!

Yeah after I fell off the "weight loss" wagon from becoming so frustrated... I pretty much stopped coming to SP. But 5 mo. of diet/exercise and NO reward can frustrate anyone I imagine. I think it's time for me to get back into the swing of things though. I've taken too long of a break and have gained back too much weight for my own liking. All those "new" smaller clothes are starting to get too tight on me.
