My name is Kristi. I am 31 years old. I am married and have 2 little girls. I have been struggling with my weight all of my life. I can remember being made fun of in elementary school for being big. When I was 24, I had the rouen-y gastric bypass done after I gave birth to my youngest daughter. I weighed in at 350 lbs when I went in for the surgery. I stopped losing at 165 lbs. I maintained my weight for 6 years. Last October,my husband and I lost a baby. I became very depressed and I turned to food for comfort. I quickly packed on 95 lbs without even realizing it. I have been trying since March to lose weight, but it seems like every time I get bored or upset, I eat. I started the Herbalife program in May and I lost 9 lbs in the first week and I feel great on the products, but I can't seem to stop the emotional eating. I have told my husband time and time again not to let me even buy snack food like pretzels and peanuts (my 2 favorite snacks), but I find myself putting them in the cart when we go to the store. I workout every day, and according to my spark people application on my phone, yes, I go over on my calorie intake most days, but I also burn alot every day. I'm not losing any weight anymore. I have got to do something. I want to have another baby, but I don't want to become pregnant at 260 lbs either. I want to be healthy and be able to enjoy it. I hate the way I breathe hard when I'm doing my workout, I hate the way I'd rather lay in bed all day instead of getting up and doing. I don't know how to go about changing my lifestyle and cutting out the constant snacking. I know that if I can cut that out all together, I'd lose weight hand over foot. I know what I'm doing when I'm doing, but I can not seem to make myself stop. Has anyone else ever had this problem? If so, how did you overcome it and change? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
