Talking

Hi Everybody,

I'm new here but sure am happy to have found this place.

Long story short:
6 years ago I was working humanitarian aid in the Third World, in shape, strong, feeling great.
Met the man of my dreams/got married.
Came back to the states and gained a little weight but not much.
2 Yrs ago, man of my dreams cheated on me with best friend.
I crashed.
Have gained weight steadily and rapidly since and am now at 260, heart problems, high blood pressure and clinical depression.

Went to doc last month and got started on antidepressants, bp meds and now have started dieting and taking xenical.

I have a feeling I might become a fixture around here becuase I sure NEED y'all.

Okay, bio.

I just got my nose pierced and I love it. I think when I lose a few more pounds I'll reward myself with another piercing... ears maybe. I am also going to get a tattoo for my birthday -- a dolphin at the nape of my neck with little multicolored starfish gradually decreasing in size all the way up to behind my ears. It will follow my hairline and be covered unless I pull my hair up in a braid or pony-tail, which I only do when I am thinner because right now my face it toooooo fat!

Hi all.

Caroline

Unfortunately, I could not paste the questions onto this message. I want to tell you that I am 65 years old and I am ashamed that I am still struggling to lose weight. I am thinking of returning to WW but I am ashamed to go there where other people know me, and also where I probably will have a hard time loosing. And yet I know that I should lose weight. I am about 75 lbs over my goal weight. I know that as I continue to age (hopefully) it is better to be thin. I am pretty healthy now, except for the depression, but I feel really hopeless about loosing weight. Does anyone elase have this problem? I have tried it so many times -- and then if I loose I always gain it back.

Jane.....I have your problem.....I am 60 years old now......have been trying to lose weight for over 40 years. I probably have as much weight to lose as you do.

There are times that I feel like giving up in this struggle.....but I seem to pick myself up & start over again....so hang in there.....I think there are lots like us.....who have struggled for decades at this.

What's different this time: I suffered a major disc rupture in my lumbar spine 2 years ago which left me partially paralyzed. I wear a brace on my right leg and walk with a crutch. I NEED to lose weight so I won't lose what mobility I have.

Anything Else?: I've been struggling w/depression since I was a pre-teen, and I've been to counselors and on meds for a time. I thank JESUS that he saved me and made me a child of the KING. His unconditional love has made a difference in my life!
