Hi all, I have been reading the many post here and can sympathize with the problem of losing weight. Not and easy accomplishment for sure! A little info about me: I am 5'6" I got up to 200 pds and in time lost 21. Than a particular depressing situations developed in my life again and I lost all ambition and desire to do anything except what I just had to do each day. Chronic depression set in. I now live alone and never had to all my life til the last few years. Grown kids cause me grief and recent failed marriage. suffer from depression and nerves. I now feel able to get back on track. Yet still have good days and bad. Lately have been having good days more often and feeling much better. I do put into practice many good things to help get thru depression. Just takes time, like losing weight. Now I am wanting and trying to lose more weight. I eat healthy foods for the most part for meals, but I do light snacks of chocolate mints and hot chocolate. and a chocolate covered donut some mornings. Not all the time. I know that is not good. but in truth, these chocolate mints and hot coa-coa calm my nerves a lot. At times I go on a 'binge' and eat just anything that comes to mind. Than I regret it. So that is my downfall. Than I try to get back on track awhile. And it inspires me to read all your experiences and the support given here. I am glad I found the weight loss forum. Will welcome any advice and shared experiences. I know I can lose weight, but it don't come off as easy as it used to for me. Want to lose 40 or so pounds. Seems the heavier I was the more I lost. I have been stuck at this 183 lbs for a long time.
