    Hi Everyone, I have struggled for 30 years to keep the weight off. By no means do I think this will be an easy path.....quite the contrary.....

[color=rgb(47,79,79)]Hi Everyone :) I am new to the group but I'm not new to any weight loss programs except this one. I've probably lost around 3 whole people but gained them back and then some each at each loss. I have lost up to 86 lbs on my own and I gained about 100 back. I have been on the thin side but didn't realize it and I have been on the heavier side which is where I am now. People treated me so different at both sizes and even the sizes in between. I use to be an outgoing person until each heavier time period. Now I stay in my home unless absolutely necessary to go out. My Son does most of the grocery shopping. I can't handle how people treat heavier people. Now it is me that thinks differently about myself. I am a stress eater and boy have I had stress. I have been a caregiver for about 10 years and have recently become a caregiver to a 2nd person who I finally had to send elsewhere in order to try and survive. Self preservation. I am in my half way point to my end date before surgery. I am praying and hoping this will help me. My health has suffered with so many things and I want to live! [/color]
[color=rgb(47,79,79)]Just a little insight. Hope everyone is well and happy with the path they are on at this point in time. [/color]
[color=rgb(47,79,79)]Most sincere :) [/color]
