I love anime and video games. To be honest this is not my first time as a sparkpeople member. I used to have another profile but well I had been doing fairly good and hadn't used it in a long time so I deleted it thinking I no longer really needed it. Well here i am again so clearly I did :p I had lost a lot of weight in the beginning of my weight loss journey, about 115 lbs. to be exact and for years now I had done a good job maintaining that weight loss and holding around the 190's not where I wanted to be forever but an alright resting place I suppose. either way a lot of things began to happen that kept me from continuing down to my goal weight but here recently I have actually started to gain :( I have been dealing with a lot lately. The main thing that I struggle with is that after 11 years of marriage I am getting a divorce and honestly I'm pretty depressed about the whole situation and just not sure at all how to process my emotions without eating them. Then to top it off I noticed I was losing a lot of hair, at first I assumed it was weight loss related as it sometimes can be. But after going to a dermatologist I was diagnosed with lichen planopilaris which is a type of auto immune inflammatory disease and turns out it is what's causing the hair loss and the hair loss will be permanent. So needless to say I've been dealing with a bit of depression trying to come to terms with all these sudden changes in my life. Of course with depression comes weight problems I gained back about 15 lbs over the summer and fall and I'm now sitting very unhappily at 203 and as many times as I have tried to get myself back on track I just can't seem to do it! So I rejoined hoping getting involved in a weight loss community again would help give my butt a kick in the right direction again finally :)
