Thank you thank you all for the support and understanding and this forum to express my feelings about food, depression, paranoia and ridding my life of my dependence on food as a drug. I have changed my whole attitude torward myself, my relationships, my children, my spouse and my relationship with food.
I have lost 33 pounds. My health has improved in every way possible.
Bleeding gums? Gone
Ankle ulcers? Gone
Knee pain? Gone
Heart burn ? Gone
OMG I have a new life.

Wonderful! Well done!
The bleeding gums thing shocked me. Never thought that would be related to weight. You must feel wonderful with all the amazing health improvements.

dear no name,( i won't call you a slob!),
The bleeding gums were related to my sugar addiction! For so many years the vast majority of my caloric intake was hidden sugar! I guess the sugar caused inflammation !

Yaaaay, you! Good work Lucinda! I knew you'd make it, now for ongoing maintenance (hmmm, that was kind of redundant, lol). I'm sure your success will follow you right through this stage in your journey.

It's absolutely amazing how all your health problems just went away!
It just goes to show how our diet has a direct impact on our overall health!
I truly believe that we are what we eat and a healthy diet can be therapeutic and medicinal! Meanwhile, an unhealthy diet leads to sickness and disease.
Congratulations & continued success!

so here it is June 2014 and yes I have maintained! I now exercise (ZUMBA) 2 or more times a week.
I also walk 5 miles per week and I do not ever let myself go hungry! I graze on red cabbage and I roast all kinds of vegetables to add to my salad as a crunch factor. I have actually continued to lose weight without focusing on weight loss. I focus on eating only real original food and except for my Spirutien shake and unsweetened almond milk , everything I eat comes from the vegetable/fruit section of the grocery store.

Well done Lucinda. I hadn't seen your goal thread before so just want to say now also congratulations on losing your excess weight. I think you've just helped me decide what i want to have for dinner tonight too.
