I'm 33, a licensed counselor in a community mental health center for 6 years. I'm also working on 2 certifications now- DBT therapist for adults and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for kids. I LOVE to learn :-)

I've been overweight 90% of my life, there was a 6 month period of time where I was "thin" and haven't seen it since. Trying to find it again :) I really struggle with exercise.

Hey Tif,
Have you ever tried Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone? Her walks can be easily done in your living room. And they can be geared up or down depending on your energy/fitness level. There are many of them on You Tube for free. And I have never regretted buying one of her dvd's.
I'm so proud of you for committing to your plan & making it work!
