My name is Donna and I am a 42 y.o. stay at home mom. I have a beautiful 5 yr old son and a handsome funny husband. I have been a yo-yo dieter since I was a teenager. I am 6'0 and currently weigh 440 pounds. My goal weight would be between 170 and 180, which I found worked well with my large frame and bones. Most importantly I want to be healthy and happy. I am ashamed to have let my body get like this. I should know better, right, since my profession is nursing. It has taken me a long time to admit that I am addicted to food. Not sweets. Not sodas. Not chips. Food. Meals. And it does not help that I am a pretty good cook and my husband is super skinny and can eat anything and everything. Since being home for the past 6 yrs I have gained 200 pounds. I am carrying a whole other person on my back all the time. And my body is feeling it. I am in agony all the time. One knee has already collapsed and the other is on the way. The bones in my feet are near the breaking point. I am ashamed to go anywhere. It is embarrassing to not fit into chairs when I go somewhere, or worry about one breaking. I want to be able to do things with my family. I want out of this prison. And day by day I plan on breaking this cycle of addiction. I will not let food come before freedom. My family deserves better, and so do I.
