So here I am once again.... Huge and Angry! So here's my story og where I've been. I lost a lot of weight and was done into onederland getting compliments feeling good about myself. I had gained a few pounds but for the most part was happy. Not to my goal weight but happy. THEN Hurricane Issac came through and we received 15 feet of water in our home. ALL was lost. Nothing salvageable, no home to go home to, no place to live. I got majorly depressed because we had just lost everything to Katrina seven years to the date earlier. So we lived in hotels and families homes and ate out constantly! I could see myself getting bigger but was too upset to even care. A few months later we found a home in a different part of the state and are living here. I no longer work and I just sit at home all day with nothing to do. I miss my old life, working every day, living in our small town. Things are different and we have been blessed to be able to get a new house but I still miss home. I still want to go home. I know we can never return because they are not planning on fixing our levees. It's hard and all I seem to want to do is eat and sleep. Starting tomorrow I am once again jumping on the weight loss wagon. I have gained 40 pounds since the hurricane. It makes me so angry that I am this big again. I worked so hard to get skinny and I just let myself go. I never thought I would ever be this big again. So I'm here ready to make new goals, accept new challenges and be healthy again.

    I am so sorry to hear about your home. My family lost everything to Hurricane Rita, then again to Hurricane Ike. It was where I grew up not where I live now, but I know how hard it is and the lingering effects it can have. I'm glad that you are back! We are still here for support. Let me know if you need someone to talk to or some encouragement! =)
