Time for an update--I haven't updated since 2016 and boy I see nothing has changed much in my life. Since my husband walked out on me in 2013, I have found it hard to accomplish anything. I wish I had family or friends for support. I have been so discouraged with life, people and mainly myself. Why am I not able to get control over my eating? Something has got to give at some point. My life is centered around work, my autistic (though very high-functioning) son, and trying to keep my house running. I am losing all motivation. I have started to consider weight loss surgery--but if I can't control myself now, how am I going to do it after. . .

Personal Information:
I am a mother of 2 and had worked 2 jobs until recently. After 30 years at one job, I was downsized and another job after 15 years. In addition to that, I had a mild stroke which led to a 40 lb weight gain and my husband of 26 years walked out on me. I have an autistic son who is 26 and has been my rock through all of this, 29-year-old daughter and I also have an adorable 5-year-old grandson and a 2-year-old grandson. I have been told I have no filter. I usually let loose whatever I am thinking most of the time--hence why I find myself more alone than not.

Other Information:
