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!

    Hello Carol, I am wondering if you happen to be Apostolic? There are not many out there that enjoy wearing skirts all the time and I see you have one on in all your full length pictures. 🤗

    I saw your note on SP homepage, good for you! You are making AMAZING progress. I need to remind myself all the time, that small setbacks do not define me, I am trying. I can't look at someone else's story and think it's my own. I'm not going to lose the weight I have gained in a month, or even 2 it's taken me a long time to be heavy, I'm not going to become thin overnight either. It's a journey, it's my life. Good luck to you. Remember why you started this.

    Thank you for your welcome comment. I read your post and relate with the feeling of "hiding" away from society. We are more than the shell of our body I am beginning to learn. I hope you reach your goals for health and enjoy YOU along the way.
