You certainly have been through that proverbial "windmill" & I rejoice with you that you chose to allow no more abusive behavior toward yourself. And now I am doubly rejoicing with you that you are back on the right track for being physically fit.
I am so saddened to hear of the loss of your beloved Dad. Please know that my prayers are covering your Mum & you, as you continue to adjust to life without your Dad physically with y'all - although I realize from personal experience that he will always be with you both in thought & memories.
May we both keep foremost in our minds that if true physical hunger is not the problem, then food is not the solution!
Be blessed with success!
Something to know about this gal "Ima" - I follow the Savior of the world!
I stand in awe of the salvation, through Christ Jesus, that Creator God has granted me. May you enjoy the same!
I am so very thankful that the door of access is permanently open to The Creator & His beloved Son, Christ Jesus!

“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “ Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
I am back but it has been so long since i logged on that i am going to start again. A few years ago i managed to loose my weight and keep it off for a long time. My eating has always been 'no off button' but the exercise certainly helped and then i got motivated to eat better. 2 or so years ago we moved out of Florida to California,where my rapidly declining marriage worsened. (emotional abuse, but luckily i went along to a womens center and they helped me regain my sense of self). A little over a year ago. work yet again made it so we had to move,,this time to NC.On the day of the move, my father died. So i flew to the UK (where i was born and raised) to help out my mum (i am an only child). Whilst there and dealing with all the horrible things involved in loosing a parent. My mum helped ME out emotionally and i came back stronger (minded) than ever. Fixed my marriage (by truly having a whacky fight and my hubby finally realising what he had been doing all these years) and things have been okay since. Finally bought a house a few months ago (and moved again but this time only a few miles,,which believe me is less stressful than 3000). Got on the scale and was truly disgusted that i have let myself down. Not just for vanity sake,,but my sense of self. Plus i have heart attacks running down both sides of the family. So it is time to get back to it, no excuses. no eating my emotions and i hope that you are okay that i am back.
