Hello,

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!

Frist off I want to welcome you to the forums and I hope you find great support here. I am sorry your husband was a total cad and that you are going through this. Focus on your daughter and both of your well being, look towards tomorrow and not back. Keep us updated and welcome once again
