Time for an update--I haven't updated since 2016 and boy I see nothing has changed much in my life. Since my husband walked out on me in 2013, I have found it hard to accomplish anything. I wish I had family or friends for support. I have been so discouraged with life, people and mainly myself. Why am I not able to get control over my eating? Something has got to give at some point. My life is centered around work, my autistic (though very high-functioning) son, and trying to keep my house running. I am losing all motivation. I have started to consider weight loss surgery--but if I can't control myself now, how am I going to do it after. . .

Member Since: 2/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 275

My Goals:
I would like to lose about 100 lb, be more self confident, healthier, and be at peace with myself!

My Program:
Portion size
Limit sugar/carbs
walk more

Personal Information:
I am a mother of 2 and had worked 2 jobs until recently. After 30 years at one job, I was downsized and another job after 15 years. In addition to that, I had a mild stroke which led to a 40 lb weight gain and my husband of 26 years walked out on me. I have an autistic son who is 26 and has been my rock through all of this, 29-year-old daughter and I also have an adorable 5-year-old grandson and a 2-year-old grandson. I have been told I have no filter. I usually let loose whatever I am thinking most of the time--hence why I find myself more alone than not.

Other Information:
Willie Nelson

    Remember today you are worth the love you have for others.
    Today you will fight the good fight.
    You will honor yourself, by fighting your demons.
    Feed yourself the love that you have for God and others, to yourself.
    Nourish your soul with foods that make you want to be happy.
    Honor your temple.
    Don't put yourself, on the bottom of your list.
    Represent what it is you give out to others.
    And stand strong in the fact that you are loved.
    Don't see the bottle half empty,
    For it is half full!
    Be grateful for life.
    Try loving your best friend, you!
