I have struggled with my weight and emotional eating my whole life. In 2001, I committed myself to eating healthy and exercising and got great results. I maintained those results until around 2007 when the weight started to creep back on. My mother was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma and I was her primary support person. Despite fighting, we lost her in July of 2008. It is the most difficult thing I have gone through in my life. Since then, eating has taken control of my life. I feel like I have lost the last several years, as if I have been sleepwalking and just going through the motions for a long time now. Despite maintaining my job and "life" I basically shut down emotionally and retreated from everything and everyone. I'm ready to feel present in my body again and feel good again. It's a constant struggle, but I'm up for the fight. I've done it before and will do it again. Looking for friends to share this journey! I will not let myself fall down so far into the depths again. I have something to offer this life and others and I want to be an active participant in my life again. I am DONE making excuses. I am DONE with feeling trapped in a cycle of mindless eating. I am DONE with sitting at home and never moving. I am DONE hating myself for how I have been hurting myself. I am DONE! *Recommitting 23 September 2017*

    Stopping by to wish you a good week. Also, if you would like to try something different with a little challenge...I have one for you to consider. It's a small private team that competes with others within the larger X-Weighted team. Doing various challenges. Runs for 8 weeks. Drop me a note of your interest and I'll send you a team invitation to the X-Weighted 11 Challenge....Dwindling_Divas team. Join, look it over and add your name to the sign-up thread. Main requirement is to post weight weekly...other activities, all though very beneficial, are optional.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks.

    I really love autumn too. Seeing the leaves change colours is always so beautiful.
