Good morning everyone ~ by the grace of God I received an email from 'Doug' and came back to this site this morning! I had completely forgotten that I signed up long ago! My name is Debra, and I live in Phoenix, AZ. I am 49 yrs old, and am a recovering food addict. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2005, dropped 147 lbs, and have had a regain of 30+ lbs in the past 6 months. I NEVER dreamed that could happen, but it can if a person continually shoves food into their mouth to calm themselves (as I have been doing). I am so embarrassed and disgusted with myself, but am working on that on a daily basis (baby steps). I AM A GASTRIC BYPASS FAILURE!!! Needless to say, I would LOVE to have the support of understanding people around me. On a positive note, I am determined to drop these gained 30lbs, and drop the additional last 40lbs that I never achieved to hit my goal weight set by my surgeon. I can do this! Anyways.....thank you for listening, and I hope to get to know all of you! Have a blessed day!! Take care, Debra
