Old dog, vastly new tricks
Friday, April 14, 2017
I have been heavy most of my life. I was always an active person and I didn't notice how big I was until I lost over 100 pounds in 2009-2010. I didn't use healthy methods to obtain this weight loss at all. I have gained 50 pounds in the last 8 months. I eat for emotional reasons and way too much. I can binge on several meal sized "snacks" and it is never the carrot sticks I reach for. I have never lived a healthy lifestyle so trying to halt and reverse this weight gain is challenging. I am depressed due to weight and barely get off the couch. I have a wonderful supportive spouse who loves me regardless and am not a vain person. Leaving my house sucks, I have a pair of warm up pants that fit still and that is about it. I have to borrow my husband's t shirts as they actually fit. He weighs 25 pounds less than me, that is too much. I found this page and I am hoping to maybe meet some people in the Tacoma/Lakewood WA area to take walks with and stuff. I just want a better life, a different life, a healthier life. All your stories are super inspirational and I wish you all the best of luck with your goals!
