Default Hello everyone

I joined today to help me succeed in losing the 30 pounds I gained after I lost my mom 3 years ago. I'd lost over 60 pounds and was doing well to maintain, but once I lost mom, I went back to old, bad habits.

I found that support groups and logging what I ate helped me before, so I'm hoping to repeat that success and get back to 130!

Hi Munkigirl! I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. It's certainly understandable that you would turn to food to self-medicate your emotions. However, I am so glad that you are ready to take care of yourself! You will find lots of support here. Whatever weight loss plan you are using, I'm sure we probably have a forum here that covers it. Browse all around and jump right in! There is so much here to read and to learn! Good luck on your weight loss journey!
Current Attempt (Slow Carb Diet, started July 19, 2013) <> Previous Attempt (Calorie-Counting, 2009)

= 10 lbs lost; = 5 lbs lost:
1. 196 lbs = "Overweight" BMI of 29.8 MET GOAL!!
2. 178 lbs = Lowest Weight in 13 years, BMI of 27.1 MET GOAL!!
3. 164 lbs = "Normal Weight" BMI of 24.9
4. 145 lbs = Goal Weight BMI of 22.0
Stay between 145 lbs and 155 lbs

Welcome! I'm so sorry to hear about your mom, that is tremendously difficult. I congratulate you on getting back on the health wagon, you can do it!
Loving yourself is an act of will. It doesn't just happen, you have to choose it.
