My Story:
Hello. I am Rachael, a 44 yr old mom of 2 boys, one graduating high school and the other in college. I live with my boyfriend, Will, in south central PA with our 2 cats and dog. Having been morbidly obese most of my adult life, I have tried many weight loss plans, only to never reach goal and to yo-yo back close to where I started. I think my biggest problems in the past were believing that I could lose weight long term without actually cooking whole foods (fast food and delivery had been a very big problem for me) and not truly understanding what lifestyle change really means. Although I used the phrase all the time, I never could quite "live it". This board has really helped me to understand what it means to live a lifestyle change, not just talk about it. Another problem I deal with is emotional eating and binging, but I am learning how to deal with my emotions via journaling and self talk. I am also learning how to deal with my food addictions. It is a long journey, but I am up to the challenge.
