Hi, everyone. I'm brand new to all this, so please excuse me if I'm writing this at the wrong place, wrong time. I live on the eastern border of ND, retired from 30+ years working at UND. I've been concerned about my weight, trying to lose, since my last child was born, about 25 years ago. I would be ECSTATIC if I weighed what I did 25 yrs ago - at 165, I was about 30 lbs overweight. Sadly, I now exceed my "normal" BMI weight by 100 lbs. I have gone to dieticians, Weight Watchers, OA, Weigh Down Workshop, multiple weight loss programs at UND. I did serious walking in the 90's, and got down to about 175, but acquired a serious case of plantar faciitis that took two years to go away. When I retired in 2006 I weighed about 210; I expected I would then be able to focus on weight loss. In reality, I have become less active, I have less structure in my life, and I can eat any time I chose to. I have focused on weight loss to such an extent that retirement isn't very much fun, and eating/weight loss is an additional emotional issue to be treated BY EATING. I need your support. I hope I am in the right place at the right time to develop a healthy relationship with food, my body and soul, and with living.
Hi! I'm Cathy, from Eastern North Dakota.
