I too think of life before I gained all this weight, way before the trauma set in, back when I could dance and bend my body in ways that felt so good to my soul, feeling the power in my legs as I jump and fly through the air. Sadly I thought I was fat back then and slowly I let myself become what I felt. CRAZY. Now I'm fighting to get back to that.

I'm currently at 402. I've lost weight before and got down to 349 but hit a depression and got past a point I have never been...the 400's. Damn. No matter what I am going to keep at it as I work on my mind and spirit.

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face... The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it... You must make yourself succeed every time. You must do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt

"I have the nerve to walk my own way, however hard, in my search for reality, rather than climb upon the rattling wagon of wishful illusions."
- Zora Neale Hurston

Hello everyone.

Sorry I went missing. Things just keep happening here and it takes so much for me to get through the emotional stuff that it affects my CFS/ME/Fibro and I end up in pain and in bed.

The latest is that my car that I have had since 95 now needs more work than its worth to fix it, so I am forced to try to sell it as is, or have it scrapped. My husb is still trying to find a job, so there is no way I can get another car now, and it's just one more bad thing that's happened over the past year or so.

ANYWAY...I hate to admit that I did a bunch of emotional eating over this and my weight was up to 414 earlier this week. As of today I am at 411. I will change my weight on my tracker after I post this.

I was thinking a lot about how my life used to be before I gained all this weight. I want that life back.

So, I need to start feeding THAT person. The person I am on the INSIDE. The person my SOUL really is.

I hope whoever reads this can join me in making the choices needed to FEED WHO YOU ARE.

I am going to try very very hard to post here every day and my most sincere hope is that others will join me and together we will be strong enough to become who we are on the outside, to match who we are on the inside.

Hello everyone!

Rainy and chilly here this morning.

I decided to switch things up and I'm having my lunch for dinner and vice versa.

Evenings are the hardest for me, and I'm usually worn out and don't feel like cooking.

So, I am going to have the salad I usually eat for lunch in the evening, and have whatever I would normally eat for my evening meal for lunch.

It worked really well yesterday. I had Chicken Curry and Naan for lunch, and then a big healthy salad for dinner.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Hey Greta,

So good to see you!

I have gained a bunch of weight with stress eating and I really need to get my act together.

I deserve better!

Hi all,

New, I'm here for you and everyone else as much as I can be. No matter where we are in our battle with food addiction we can always push the restart button.

Keep pushing it. You got this.
