I found sparkpeople last week. Well, actually, a colleague referred to me here. I just found this team tonight, though. It is an ideal team for me, as I weigh well over 200- probably 235- and struggle with monstrous depression.

I have lost 30 lbs. at least 4 separate times over the past 20 years. Once, I kept it off for close to 2 years. Then in 1999, I lost over 50 lbs and was within 20 of my goal (I started at 203 that time). Then, I had a marital issue, started eating again, and within a year the weight was all back. It never spent any time leveled off!

I put my emotional overeating down to a number of issues- I've been dxed with PTSD due to a very dysfunctional childhood, a lifelong battle with depression, an unhappy marriage- all of these things have challenged my ability to treat my body well, the way I know it needs to be treated. And now, as I'm getting older, it is all coming home to roost, too, in terms of weight related health problems. Ugh!

So, I'm glad to have found this site and this team and I am hoping that this will be "the" time for me! Thanks for reading (oh, and by the way, you will notice I have quite a tendency to ramble!)

Inhale faith, exhale fear.
