I currently weigh 260lbs. The only time I've ever weighed more is when I was 9 months pregnant with my son, I got up to 285 lbs with him. The funny thing is, is that I weighed 260 when I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter in October of 2012. I had my daughter, managed to get down to 225 at one point, but then climbed back up to 260. I am absolutely miserable with myself! I am embarrased to be seen in public because of the way I look. I'm embarrased for my husband to be seen with me because I am so large, but yet I don't do a damn thing about it. I always have good intentions to try to lose weight, but as soon as I'm around food they are tossed to the side. Is my love of food so much greater than my love for myself than I'm willing to be trapped inside this large body, struggling to get out? Has anyone else experienced this? Please someone tell me how to take control of my eating and myself so I will finally start to lose the weight!

    Hugs to you right now. Your story resonates with me for sure, and many others as well. I don't know what that magic switch is. I've had it at various times in my life and gained weight back as well. All I can say is please don't give up on yourself. You are worth it and you can do it. Just keep trying new things and get as much support as possible. Be patient with yourself and love yourself. I read a wonderful blog today and maybe you might find some inspiration there:

    Take good care,
