Hi everyone! Obviously I'm pretty MFP dedicated, but I've never checked out the message boards before and wanted to share my progress. I started logging in 2013 at a weight of 303 but got serious in late 2014. After hitting a low of 138 lbs, I had some major life challenges -- a medication that seriously affected my weight, depression and anxiety struggles with accompanying bad reactions to medications, reactive hypoglycemia that drove my hunger through the roof, and a return to comfort eating after the unexpected death of my husband. By April of last year I had regained to 176, and I'm almost prouder to have lost 34 pounds in the past year than to have lost 160 in the past 5. Life isn't linear, and weight loss isn't always either.
