Yes–I do struggle with it, and I have since I was in my mid-thirties. I’ve lost and gained I don’t know how many pounds, but I couldn’t keep it off. The last time, I lost 75pounds-- down to my goal weight–that was 6 years ago…and I have watched it slowly climb in the last 6 months or so ( I’m 5’2–every ounce shows on me!) and I’ve gained 17 pounds…UGH!!! It’s not a huge thing yet–but if I keep letting it come pound by pound–it’ll be that way!!
So THANKS, Celine!!! --I’m going to check that website out and bookmark it!! I’ll see if I can STOP THE INSANITY!! before it has gotten completely away from me! I’m 56, and at this age, my doctor says, it’s natural to gain–especially with some of the meds I have to take for life, so I need all the support I can get…
I hope joy is at the beginning of that website–I need to control my eating, but more than that–I need to exercise, and I have Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Anti-Social Anxiety Disorder–(just to name a few things) so sometimes, it’s excruciatingly painful for me to step out my door–other times, when I’m with my dh or ds, I can do it ok…it’s a lotta things–but no more than anyone eles’. We all have things we deal with, and things we want to work on…and I’m looking forward to this website. I need all the support I can get…because when I’m stressed or depressed or in pain, my addiction is food. (and yarn, of course!!)
I, too, am a Christian,Celine, and I’m very proud and humbled and glad to say that the blood of Jesus Christ saved me,too, and the thought of NOT knowing that there is a God who loves me, and is there when I pray to HIM, well, it scares me!!
