Hello Ladies! Kate79, our stories are similar. Glad to see you here. Good for you for connecting with support. My support comes from this forum, my sister and my obnoxious daily tracking to see exactly what I am doing and keep me from falling asleep and hitting the pause button on my path to wellness again. No time to do that
I was 230, regained to 299 and now am at 289. I am really ashamed to own those numbers (not for anyone else, just for me because of the hard work it took to get the weight off and the record speed it seemed to creep back) and really mad at myself for slipping back but the science behind obesity shows that this is the body's natural tendency. So, now what I am doing is for life and I am committed to that. A little health crisis that could become a big health crisis has broadsided me and further enhanced my commitment to love myself enough to make lasting change.
I hope to be a support to you all and myself through this forum.
