Starting Weight/Present/Goal Weight: 228/181/150

Problem: Binge eating

Plan/Way of Eating Calorie counting (have trouble remembering to do this!), non-processed foods, low carb but could be compared to a paleo diet being natural foods? I have a binge eating disorder. I have been trying to figure this out and deal with it all of my adult life. I held it at bay once for 2 years, and somehow it returned. I am still trying to get it back under control and over come it. I know no one else in my real life that has any eating disorder, so I searched the internet for others that understand. Family, and co-workers only see a person who has lost almost 100 lbs on her own and kept most of it off. They don't have any idea I am a binge eater.

Favorite exercise Walking and more walking listening to ipod. I do have a stability ball I want to start using.

Favorite movies: To many to mention as my husband and I are movie buffs and watch at least one movie a night.

Favorite books/plays: Jane Erye, Huckleberry Finn, Diary of Adam and Eve, mystery series (Bones, Sue Grafton, Patrica Cromwell, and so many others. I can't narrow down to just a few. I loved the play 12 angry men, Our Town, I actually enjoyed Shakespeare, Homer, I read David Copperfield a million times, The wisdom of The Cat in the Hat.

Music: I listen to everything but have a great knowledge of music from the late 60's and 70's even though I wasn't even around in the 60's and I was a baby born in 1973.

Favorite Quote(s): "If you ever find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause, and reflect." -- Mark Twain. ďThere is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad.Ē ~ Salvador Dali. I could go on and on and on, but let me try to keep this at a manageable level.

I love this one!


01. What is your favorite word? acceptance

02. What is your least favorite word? "whatnot" I have a co-worker who uses this word in every single sentence every day and I have listened to it for 8 years.

03. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

04. What turns you off? ignorance, inequality, mean people in general, greed

05. What is your favorite curse word? ****

06. What sound or noise do you love? the ocean

07. What sound or noise do you hate? alarm clock at 4 a.m.

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? I accept you for who you are, not who you think you are

Any other tidbits you would like to share:

My husband is 11 years older than I am and is originally from California. I am from Maine, lived there my entire life until I came to Wyoming the day after graduating high school. The majority age difference doesn't matter and only occasionally do our views differ due to regions where we grew up. I see the ocean as a way to work and make a living, he has only fun memories of hanging out at the beach all day.

I have lived in Wyoming since 1991. I have been in this city since attending college, yet I have no "outside" friends. I have my family and my husband. I have found the internet a lifeline and it makes people feel more connected and less lonely (when used correctly).

I am on the board of directors at our local food bank. I have been volunteering there for 4 years.

I have driven bus, have a cd yet I didn't learn to drive a vehicle until I was 26 years old and got a license. However, l captained a lobster boat since teenage years and grew up on the ocean, and yet I have self esteem issues.

I am a mother to 5, two "natural" and 3 step kids. My husband and I met in college back in 1991, were classmates. I remember him as the partner who skipped the day our oral presentation was due. I never forgot him. Fast forward 18 years later and we met again after years of just saying high in the grocery store. We have been married 5 years now and they are the happiest years I have had.
