Hi! I'm Renee AND I am a Former Fat Person, wife of one super, super great husband, and a cat mom. My previous forever paw children I lost both of them in 2017 😭

Most of my story is in my early blogs which is my 1/16/2012 blog. In brief I have made it to less than 200 pounds THREE times now since I have started on my weight loss journey at the end of 2008, and I feel i have STOPPED sabotaging myself and I am slowly getting closer to goal, even though I haven't even reached my goal yet....no one said this would be easy.
(Added 9/23/12) I have figured out what has happened to me these last two times and why I failed, the shrink didn't tell me, I just FINALLY figured it out! The first time I failed cause I wasn't ready to be someone I haven't been in such a long time. Junior year is when the weight starting creeping up now that I was 29 watching things shrinIk and "wrinkle" where fat had been so long, I was not prepared, I wanted it but I didn't get it. The second time, yes my emotional eating issues when my stepfather passed overwhelmed me A LOT! In fact I went through a lot of things that I will not ever share but I keep myself busy with things and refrain from throwing myself pity parties and I will get through it. So the THIRD time has to be the last right!?!?!?!

    Thank you for your condolences on my cat. He was a blessing! I have to admit, though, that he wasn't always entirely lovable. He was semi-feral, and had a bit of a mean streak. But I always tried to be really patient, and remember that I was really the first person that ever really cared about him. It can be hard to re-train an adult cat. Really difficult!

    So do you have a dog or a cat? Sometimes I think we might get a dog next time, when we're more ready. We need to do a lot of cleaning. We sort of let things go a little bit, because of illnesses and things. So we're going to wait until the house looks ship-shape. Well, whatever problems you're having with the animal, it's never to late to bond with him or her. They even have people skilled in helping with that. The Humane Society has people on their staff that can help. I hope it can improve with time, good luck!

    Yes! I've been off and on a couple of times over the past decade, but pretty much on daily for the past year and a half. This is such an amazing community, it's hard to stay away!

    I re-committed myself to reaching my goals.

    I lost 100 pounds only to "find" most of them again.
