I was nine years old the first time I binged and I was put on my first diet at twelve. I wasn't actually over-weight until I was eighteen or nineteen years old. That was when I was able to purchase food with my own money and could eat when and what I wanted. I put on about 20 pounds each year until 5 years ago.

In August 2007 and at 670 pounds, I started a binge eating program through my HMO. After that was over, I paid out of pocket for a different eating disorder program. During the next 18 months, I lost about 50 pounds. I realized; however, that I would need to do more in order to be able to lose enough weight to be able to move around and live the life I wanted.

Hi Nora, I am Gini from Canada. DO you use cross stitch kits for your designs and if so where do you find them? I have an awful time finding any here.
