My name is Lindsay and Im 26 years old. I am a mother of one little girl whos 6 years old! Ive been struggling with my weight for roughly 9 years. It started in high school when i got diagnosed with depression which started me on and lead to alot of emotional eating. I went thru alot of stuff most high school students dont go thru. Im lucky to be outta the situation that got me here, but i still struggle with the long term mental/emotional/psychological effects of my past. I am unhappy being obese and want to change. I fear being this big forever. I struggle with motivation and strength but really want to be healthier and weigh alot less. I have also tried to eat better/get active before and it only lasted a couple days at a time. I gave into what I sometimes feel is an "addiction" to food. I am starting my journey again, starting at 273lbs and being only 5'2. I have faith in myself this time.

*When The Pain Of Staying The Same
Exceeds The Pain Of Change,
You Will Change*

Its NEVER too late to be who I MIGHT have been.

Dieting is hard.
Maintenance is hard.
Being fat is hard.

"I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the f★ck!ng deli without hearing or seeing me."

    Hey Lindsay!!! Welcome back! I am so happy to hear that you are feeling better and the cyst is gone. I actually had a cyst on my ovarie when I was pregnant last year and I know how painful they can be. I am very proud of you for coming back and being determined to lose the weight!! I know you can do this. emoticon

    I have been doing pretty good. Busy with work and taking care of my son but I have been doing good with the weight loss. I joined WW back in July and since then have lost 25.8lbs!! I love it! My total weight loss since having my son back in April is 45.8lbs! It feels so great to know you can lose the weight. It definitly is hard and I do have challenging days but you gotta just keep your head up! I try and get on SparkPeople as much as I can but lately I haven't been able to. I am so glad to be in touch with you again and I hope we can talk more and keep up the great progress!

    It's soo awesome that you joined the gym! I feel being a gym member helps soo much! When you know that you are paying for it I think you get more inclined to go. I've has so much more success since I joined my gym in August. It's awesome that you're boyfriend can go with you for free! I like to do the exercise tv on demand stuff whenever I can't get out of the house. I like Leslie Sansone's 2 mile walk!
