Hi everyone.. I have been a member of DS for about a month. I am 40 years old and going through menopause. I have been overweight most of my life but went to Europe my senior year of high school and became very healthy but after returning home ended up with a eating disorder when I came back to the US because I did not want to gain weight back. In college I binged and purged but loved the way I looked and felt. I never got help for my ED but the year I left College I ended up pregnant with my now 18 year old son. I gained 75 pounds when i was pregnant with my son because I would never purge and take away from him being healthy. I sure did binge. the results are I am very overweight and have not been able to get my weight back under control. When I was in Finland I kept a journal. I wrote down what I ate and also what exercising I did for the day. It really helped to look back. Since gaining all this weight I have become very misserable in my life lately. At home and at work. I use to be so happy all the time everyone wanted to be around me because I was always laughing and joking around. I now feel very insecure around people and would rather not interact. I need help and support to get my happy go lucky life back and I hope coming to DS will help in my journey of a overweight Woman trying to get her life back to her happy go lucky person I use to be. Feel free to take a look at my journal and feel free to give me any ideas, support possible and I will help all I can along the way... My journal enteries can be very long at times because it helps to get everything off my mind.
