Default 60 Pounds Down

This has been an interesting 6 months to say the least. I came home to NY in March to help my mother after her knee replacement. I decided that I was miserable and needed to do something about my weight. I couldnít bear the thought of going back home to Maryland so I stayed with her for 3 weeks. When I finally went back home my fiancť broke up with me and ended our 6 year relationship. He also said some of the nastiest things anyone has ever said to me in my life.

How I stayed on plan through that is a mystery and a miracle. Iím an emotional eater and my reflex was to eat all of my pain. But I packed up and moved to NY and Iím feeling better and better each day.

Iíve still got a ways to go but I have a renewed confidence in myself.

Well done ChickieBoom, that's fantastic progress in the face of some painful and challenging experiences.
Isn't it fab when you discover strength that you never realised you had before? My whole image of myself transformed some years ago, now I know I can do anything - if I'm committed enough to push through the discomfort. Best of luck with your ongoing progress x

ChickieBoom: being able to stay on plan during adversity, not just when it is easy, is a great success indeed. I too have found that after about a year and a half on plan and maintaining, that emotional eating is no longer my thing.

I am sorry your partner felt the need to be verbally abusive when deciding to split up. Sometime people say and do horrible things at this time.
Many people have had similar experiences. I can only assume that the departing partner is trying to justify themselves somehow, due to embarrassment or something, because they feel guilty for some reason.
Always makes me wonder what they did wrong.

Obviously, you are well rid of this, and coming our healthier and stronger as a result.
Now that you are lighter, if you have not become more active during this time, its a great time to take up some exercise activity that YOU enjoy, which can lead to new friendships and acquaintances that are interesting and healthy for you.

well done and congrats, keep up the good work.
