older mom... I had 3 kids in my 30's & nothing has been the same. Forgot to include "me" in the equation.
Now past 50, the whole hormonal mess seems to be working against me. Nothing works...

When I was 8 I got very sick and was placed on steroids daily for 6 months, gaining almost 100 lbs. I was limited in my ability to exercise because of my sickness, spending most of that year in the hospital. I have lost weight over the years, but always find it comes back when I stop being strict with my food and exercise efforts.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I've never really had serious weight issues, I was pretty underweight as a child. As an adult in my later 30's the weight was creeping on so I took action so I would not have to lose a lot of weight. I've lost about 15-20 pounds and keep it off with eating properly and doing exercise~

As far back as I can remember... Prob started around the time I was 6-7 years old... I was abit bigger then the other kids but they all saw it and had no mercy like most kids...
Bit it got out of control when I broke my wrist at 10 yreas old and couldn't take part in my dance school, so went to watch to learn and the new teacher basically came up to me and said 'Why do you even bother coming? You can't dance plus even if you couldn't you're too overweight and stand out against the other girls' - That was it, I felt like a fat nobody!!!

Age 9-10. I started emotional/compulsive eating late at night while my already-divorced parents were in a year-long custody battle in the courts. I gained about 40lb in less than a year on a 5'2" frame. You can see the pictures of me in the photo album change-- age 9, skinny and happy and jumping rope on the front porch. Age 10, standing at the bus stop on the first day of 5th grade, looking sullen and really chubby.
