My name is Monique. I am 48 years old and I started logging in last week at 290 pounds. I have struggled with my weight all of my life. Even suffered from eating disorders as a teenager which was followed by two decades of Alcohol and Drug Abuse. I am an emotional eater and come from a long line of them. Today I sit here and I look at how far I have come after passing the 6 year mark since I made a choice to do what ever it took to stop abusing alcohol and drugs and I see that I have to do what ever it take to stop abusing myself and my body with food! I am very encouraged with the fact that I have lost 6 pounds in my first week. And even more that I have consistently logged all of my food even when I had my bad days. I have tried every thing. I had the gastric bypass almost ten years ago which defected and I never had the insurance to get it fixed and now I have everything in place to have the revision and I am giving myself 6 months with this program to see where I can get. I know if I settle for the quick fix of the surgery I will lose the weight to quick and still have not changed my behaviors. So this is the path of my new journey! Grateful that I found this program and I am going to give it my best!
