Default Hello...anyone home?

Have just registered after dipping in and out of here for a while. I suppose I should post in the introductions bit, but this makes more sense to me. I am trying to lose weight and combat depression, both of which have plagued me on and off for years. Anyway, the depression bit is going well and I've managed to lose about 20lbs over almost a year but it has been very, very difficult and I could do with some help!
I'm a big exercise fan and visit the gym 2-3 times per week. Apart from the fat I'm fit-it helps no end with the depression.
All of my issues come from the past-the present is great, I have a fantastic husband & 2 great kids and I know how lucky I am but I am just desperate to break the chains of low self esteem and self sabotage that bind me to the past. I know the overeating is tied up with this somewhere-I'm eating to fill my soul not my stomach.
I'll do my best to help motivate you, but is there anyone out there who can hold my hand through this last ditch attempt to look like the person I want to be rather than the person I am?
Hope so......

Hello Farawayshore, and welcome !!

I think its wonderful how you have overcome alot of issues and taken control over your depression. 2 - 3 days at the gym is also teriffic. How much are you intending on losing ? are you following any diet plan ?

I can really relate to eating to fill the soul instead of listening to your stomach. I do that all the time. I think lots of us do.

There's a bunch of wonderful ladies on the daily board that can help, all you need to do is join in. Its the thread w/the days' date on it.

First I would fill out the Bio at the top of the boards, this way people can read about you.

Hope to see you on the daily's.
