I am in my 50s, married, with 8 grandkids - 4 boys and 4 girls. I started here to gain insight on stress relief, emotional eating, as well as a few health issues. I was always the dieting yoyo...up and down and up and down. Then in December 2009 I started getting sick and my emotional eating stopped. I pretty much stopped eating altogether for a while. I was just sick. Now, July 2010, 50 pounds lighter, after doctors and tests, the reason is still a mystery, but here I am. I'll take it.
Getting healthy, which means my weight, finding ways to ease my stress, trying to get my Fibromyalgia and IBS under control, as well as taking the time for ME for a change.
Been away from the site. Now it's 2010. I'm back, and trying to figure that out.
I am from Pennsylvania.
If and when I get any time for me, I love to read. Some of my favorite authors are Tracie Peterson, Fern Michaels, Cassie Edwards, Nora Roberts, and Linda Lael Miller, just to name a few.
