I am a stay at home mother to my 23-month-old daughter. I gave up a job I loved in 8/08 to stay home. I've been struggling with food and weight since I was 18. I've had all kinds of eating disorders and body image problems. I have never been obese, but I'm currently struggling to re-lose the rest of my pregnancy weight. From October to December '09 I lost over 20 lbs. with Jenny Craig (very easily, I might add). Then I discovered my partner of 7 years was having an affair and we are divorcing. It has been a terrible, terrible situation, and I have re-gained much of the lost weight. Needless to say I feel really alone and am finding it so impossible to stick to any diet/weight loss/exercise plan. I want to feel good again--both physically and mentally--but I get so exhausted and depleted and depressed by the end of the day that I end up bingeing or just not following a healthy weight loss plan. So I've come to this site hoping for some support to decrease my loneliness, which I think is a major factor in my inability to lose the weight again and focus on living my life.
So, after that long intro, I am happy to be here!
