Some may recognize me....I've been a member here for ages. It's been awhile since I've posted.

A brief bio/catchup: I have always been fat. Always. Even out of the womb I weighed two ounces more than my twin sister. And that is the way it has stayed. I have been over 300 lbs for most of my adult life, with a couple of random exceptions. I've had my share of ups (marriage, college graduation, great job) and downs (divorce, severe "woman issues"). And my weight has roller coastered right along with life events.

Fast forward to now: Lucky me--I have not one, but two new diagnoses as part of my medical record: one being an eating disorder, and two being Type II diabetes. I've been learning to live as a person with these two issues, and it has been pretty rough. However, I am recognizing and rediscovering some great tools and resources to help manage these things.....one of them being 3FC. This is BY FAR the best website for weight loss info and discussion. I want to start using this site for support again. I am also using Overeaters Anonymous to help sort out the emotional and spiritual issues I have as a result of food.

I know one thing for sure: I am not alone on this journey. I have my Higher Power (whom I choose to call God) and all of you who understand what it's like to have food rule your life. I need you. That's why I'm here.

Much love,
Jen

Welcome back, Jen!!
I've been around a couple of months. I had the same epiphany, that need to reach out. Boy, I wish I had done it a long time ago... It's done wonders already.

Looking forward to speaking with you more and following you on your way! :D

Welcome back! Since you mentioned a higher power (God), I wonder if you've read the book Made to Crave? Amazing! Check it out!
