Sure....I am really looking for weight loss support. I am not extremley overweight and my health is not at risk, but I feel badly about myself and really need some encouragement. And maybe just a hug. Maybe someone out there to tell me I CAN do it. My life has been very difficult the last couple of years and I want to come out of this the winner. I need help!!!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I had a gastric bypass in Jan '01 lost 70 pounds and then my first husband died of a heart attack. I began drinking alot and stopped losing weight. I got myself together after a few months and have now lost almost 200 pounds. I began to gain back some the past few months after quiting work and staying home. Too much munching time on my hands.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I am joining WW to get some structure and accountability back. I spend too much time at home alone and need to meet with people who are struggling too.

Default Bio for Skjolden

DATE: 2/11/04

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Susie

AGE: 47

BIRTHDAY: October

MARITAL STATUS: M

SPOUSE’S NAME: Jack - my high school sweetheart (28 years)

CHILDREN/AGES: Jordan is 25, married, and in graduate school; Taffy is 22, still in college; Bryan is 19 and in the army; Lindsay is 16 and a junior; Charlie is 15, a freshman, and has pretty serious learning disabilities; Ben is 10, 5th grade, and also has a depression problem. Together they are the most fun you can imagine - what a lively crowd.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Quilting, reading. Homeschooled for 16 years (older kids went straight to college from homeschool), took three years off but we're homeschooling again because the move in November didn't go smoothly for our two youngest kids. Lindsay goes to high school.

PETS: Maisie, Mistral, and Joey - cats with attitude

TOP WEIGHT: 240

CURRENT WEIGHT: 228

GOAL WEIGHT: 172 ?

HEIGHT: 5'5"

EYE COLOR: blue/grey

HAIR COLOR: light brown with highlights. Got my first grey hair at 47 and immediately covered it up

OCCUPATION: health unit coordinator but currently looking for part time employment after relocating with husband's job.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Pacific Northwest - north of Seattle, blessedly close to salt water and mountains.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Staying on the diet, exercising when I'd rather read a book, whenever I get below 200 I start eating compulsively so I'm thinking maybe I'm afraid (?) to be below 200

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I don't think anything is different. I know all of the games I play with myself to sabotage my diet and I let it happen because I'd RATHER eat potato chips than salad. But if I'm always planning to go on a diet or failing at one, at least I feel like I'm trying. I just read this and realized that I'm giving up.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Hmmm. I love the Lord - very imperfectly, I'm afraid. I got my first speeding ticket last weekend. My husband is a park ranger so we always live in very beautiful places, but we've never bought a house. I tend to spend compulsively when I diet or when I'm depressed. My best friend is moving across the country and that makes me sad.

Husband is diabetic, but is in denial. He refuses to get with the program, although he is not over weight, does not eat healthy even though I'm trying to get him to understand. I also go through periods of depression (like now) when I'm stressed. Thankfully, my children do not have a weight problem and have no problem eating "the good things."
I lost 10lbs in Feb. with diet (sort of Dr. Phil's program) and exercising. I'm doing the "Leslie Sandsome's Walk away the pounds" and up to the two mile walk 5 days a week. So far so good. Just need some extra support every now and then.

AGE: 26

MARITAL STATUS: married for just over 2 yrs to my best friend of *counting on fingers* 12 years

SPOUSE’S NAME: Kirk

CHILDREN/AGES: See pets! They're my furry children!

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Harry Potter! Cooking, hunting, playing board games & video games with DH, and just hanging out in general.

PETS: Lobo-12 yrs old-Golden Retriever, Gracie-2 yrs old-Beagle/Basset, Indiana-2 yrs this summer-Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Samantha-8 yrs old-big black kitty, Diesel-2 yrs old- big ginger kitty, Ginger-6 months- fluffball kitty, Buckbeak-about a year old-Cockatiel

CURRENT WEIGHT: see TW

GOAL WEIGHT: between 150-180.. not picky!

HEIGHT: 5 ft 8 w/ a large build

EYE COLOR: green

HAIR COLOR: calico

OCCUPATION: SAHW

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: TEXAS

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: It all happened over night it seemed like. Literally, one morning I finally noticed how heavy I had gotten and it's gone downhill from there. I became very depressed after TTC with no luck (it's going to be 3 years this November and still no luck) and that didn't help anything at all. Made things worse. I crawled into a shell and just didn't want to deal with much. The lack of activity was what did it I think. Now, I'm still in my hole because I don't want to be seen. When I graduated high school back in 96 I was @ 170-180 and looked pretty darn good.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I really don't know. I haven't started anything yet.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm new. This is my first post.
