The situation is now better but we still have problems to work out through God's grace. I hope you will understand and just continue to pray for my family.
Stress and success

As far as my weight loss goes, I have been steadily working on it throughout this situation. One thing about being an emotional eater, your stress will either trigger you to eat more or it triggers you to stop eating. In my situation, it has gone both ways. Two months ago, when this all happened, I gained at first. My weight went back up to over 300 pounds and my heart broke. I knew I was killing myself and just making it worst by eating. I had mentioned before that I was considering lap band or gastric bypass surgery. That is still an option at this point, but I am hoping not to need either.
I was reading my emails one night and saw an ad for a great deal on Medi Weight Loss Clinic. This program is completely run by doctors and I decided to give it one last try. I am so glad that I did. This program not only works with the medical part of losing weight but also the emotional end of eating. I started the program five weeks ago. When I started the program, I weighed 303 pounds. I am in my sixth week now and have lost 26.8 pounds. I am now down to 275! I weigh in every Thursday and my first goal with the program is 30 pounds in six weeks. As of today, I am 3.2 pounds and four days away from meeting that goal. I love this program and how easy it is to follow.
Thank you for taking time out of your life to spend with me in mine! Thank you for caring and thank you for your understanding and prayers. God Bless!
