Jul 2007: Here in England now for 3 years, I love my Life, although I do admit I miss the States at times as well.
I had open heart surgery (aortic valve replacement) in January 2007, and am eternally grateful to the health system over here.
My goal is to (finally) lose this excess weight once and for all, and find healthy -- both mentally and physically -- ways to cope with the emotional ups and downs, rather than eating over it all!
Feel free to contact me, to share ideas, thoughts, suggestions,.or to chat -- shall we help one another on this journey? :)
I weighed over 350 lbs a few summers ago and have gone down and up a few times since, but thank God, not over 300. I am grateful I haven't gone back up that high again, as I can easily do so. WAY too easily. I am starting this profile here at 246, and want to be below 156, if possible. Not sure what is reasonable anymore, though, as I am 55 now, not 19, & have been up and down so many times, I have no idea what I can do, let alone what my body can do. I know my needs are emotional support and finding the (inner?) strength to tackle what is eating at me. I look forward to sharing with any and all of you that would like to do so -- not just to tell you MY story, but hear and share yours with you as well, if you would like that. Thanks! :)
I attend a support group (12-step) for my compulsive overeating, and am wanting some new friends. I believe this will get me "out of myself" and out of self-absorption and self-pity. I think that is best -- for ME anyway!
hiya, I am American, born and raised east coast, but most of my adult life on the west coast. I have 2 grown sons (I divorced their dad in 1998, after too many years of emotional abuse), and now live in England.
I have a wide range of interests, although I am still looking to "find myself" -- I don't as yet know my purpose, OR my passion... if that makes any sense...?
Any ideas how I can do this?
