Default Hi, I'm jumping in the water!

Just want to introduce myself before jumping in on the 47 thread.

Iíve always struggled with my weight, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much. My low was 137 (for like a week a decade ago) and my high is today (202). For many years I hung in around 165 and was always able to lose a quick 10 pounds for a special event. Things have changed in the last 18 monthsÖ..

My dad died after a long illness then, and my weight crept up to 175. I struggled to get it back down but with little success. Then last September, I moved in with my mom in a different state to help her out and switched jobs. Quit smoking (!). Hit Peri menopause, which stinks by the way! 27 pounds later, here I am.

I am having a hard time working up the effort to eat less. My problem lately is portion size. And I am an emotional eater. I am also fairly lonely here in this new town but have lately been reaching out. I know being around more people will have me caring again.

I have not put forth a real weight loss plan in a couples of years. Iíve been operating on the ďNo food is badĒ plan. And while thatís true for many, not so true for me. I need to eat like a human again! And cut out the big lunches and desserts!

My goal is 35 pounds lost by Christmas (and a cruise! ) Thatís 1.5 a week and I donít think thatís too much to ask of myself !

Love you all ! Hope
