Hello everyone, I'm back :) it's been too many years since I've been away. :( But the up side is I'm trying again ;) .... Well enough with the introduction and onto the Story of why I'm here. Like most of you I have a non-conventional relationship with food! My weight has reached an all time high! :( A whopping 275 lbs! Not something that i I'm proud of at all, actually it's right the reverse. I'm so embarrassed with my weight I pay my bills and purchase groceries on Thursdays to avoid people I know. It's not that I don't want to talk to anyone but because I don't want them to see me like this. I haven't always had a weight problem. As a young child I was thin but when I reached 10 years old my weight spiked and I was chubby. My mom and I went on a diet when I was about 12 and I lost quite a bit of weight. To make a long story shorter after my first child I dropped to 119 lbs but after my second child I gained up to 236lbs it took 4 years or so before I lost the weight and dropped to 130lbs at the age of 27. I kept it off for a few years but then it went to rising again. In 2010 I dropped to 185lbs kept it off for a few years once again and that brings me up to today at 275lbs :( I know I can do it if I don't give up! I want to enjoy life again instead of hiding under a rock, so to speak. I don't want to live to eat anymore. I want eat to live and not be ashamed to take pics with the family and fellowship with friends without feeling like I'm being analyzed. Normal is what I want my life to be again!

    Hi! You may 'friend' me if you'd like. I also have a lot of pounds to burn off. I'm thinking of it as POTENTIAL ENERGY...which really just means I've got all the energy I need to get active...built RIGHT in my body. lol
    I am 5'4, and weigh about 252. I am turning 50 (If I live long enough) in March. I have several children, ages 24-11. My hubby and I home-educate the kidders. We are Christians.
    Now you've got all the info ya need to decide if I'm a suitable buddy for you. :)

    Either way, I wish you well on this fantastic new journey! It's FUN getting healthy. Just think that for every positive step you take, it will make you healthier than you were, just MINUTES ago.
