The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
Hi name is Cindy and I'm an overeater

Ugh. I've been avoiding you all because I have failed yet again. I'm at an all time high weight. I have eaten my way through my first year without Mom. I will weigh Monday. I will be accountable. I will post it. I feel horrible. Harder to breathe etc. I am ashamed. I never thought I would get this heavy again|
Never stay away because you

feel like you have failed. You haven't failed, you have just found ways that don't work for you. Keep practicing and trying new things so you can find what does work. We totally understand where you are coming from do you think we have been together for years because it all came together for us easily? Come on back home and let us help you so that you don't have to do it alone. |
We all understand...because...

We have all been there! Please donít stay away! I was excited to see you posting with us and then you disappeared! We all know the struggle Cindyh...and we will all be here to listen to you and cheer you on! |
I know first hand that it doesnít come easy. Sometimes itís an all or nothing kind of thing, and sometimes itís baby steps...donít worry about anything except what you are doing today! Start thinking of food as fuel for your body, make smart choices, and learn to forgive yourself and move on if you have a day that isnít perfect! You donít have to be perfect, you just have to be consistent! Instead of thinking about losing weight, think about getting healthy! If you work on that, the weight will come off!
I wish I had all the answers but I donít. I just know that you are worth getting up every day and doing this! You canít be here for your husband, your kids, or your grandkids if you donít! Thereís a reason when you are flying and there is turbulence on the plane and the oxygen masks come down, that they tell you to put yours on first BEFORE you help others! You HAVE to take care of YOU if you want to be able to help anyone else!
I am so glad you reached out on here and I hope you pop in here each day! We miss you when you are gone!

For me, some days are easier than others but I don't know if it will ever be 'easy' or natural. I hope so. Having WW as my structure really helps. Even if I wander off, I have a system to come back to and reorient me during the week. |
I stay away when I feel ashamed, too. It doesn't help anything at all. Stick around. Each of us are experts in what you are feeling.

With John and I we lift each other up or bring each other down. It helps if we can eat the same way. If one gains we both gain|
You are not alone

You are so so so not alone. We've got to do this for ourselves, CindyH. We are worth it. |
I totally understand...

I think of my mom so much. It's very difficult. Just keep trying... because one day it will stick. |
I couldn't function without lots of sugar. I understand.
I am on Team Cindyh.
Thank you Beverly

I appreciate that. It's not easy. I stay on play a few days then I lose it|
