Smile New and need support

hi everyone
i am very new to this website but have been struggling with my weight all my life. I was at a healthy weight in my early 20's for several years after losing weight while in highschool but over the past few years my weight crept up slowly but surely. i am an emotional eater, and use food to self soothe. I think that my weight gain is a direct result of some work-related and financial struggles as I have been fighting to get up the corporate ladder for years with many downfalls! I was in denial for several years - didn't weigh myself until I got pregnant last year- and I was over 200 lbs. Thankfully I didn't gain much weight during pregnancy and it was a wakeup call about my body and relationship with food. I eat balanced foods- natural/veggies- just too much of it and like cheese and chocolate too much... Now that my baby boy has arrived, I am ready to take control of me- i realize that i cannot use any other struggles in my life as an excuse to overeat and not be in control of my weight. I also know that i cannot do this alone. Most of my friends are skinny minnies and have no clue what it is like to really struggle with weight. So am looking for your support. I have read some of the posts and this seems like the positive and nurturing environment. Any advice you can give me would be most helpful.

Thanks,
Jenny Duck
