My journey [Edit Post]

I started my journey with my wieght problem when I was a child. I ate to comfort myself, food was my very best friend.
When I became a teenager I started watching my wieght. You know the boys and parties, dates and for a while I could do it. Then I had a child and thought oh my god what if I can't get this off. I was able to lose the wieght I gained which was 55lbs., plus lose another 20lbs to put me at a nice size 9 and 135lbs.
I got married and thought it would last for every but, alas my picker was really off and I picked a man who loved beer more then me. So guess who became my best friend again? Food! for 13 years this went on until I was saved. I lost wieght again and dated, and then two tragedies happened in my life. I lost my oldest sister my best friend, my hero. 3 weeks later my father almost lost his life it was a horrible 2 weeks waiting to see what would happen. And again I ate for comfort and friendship. I balloned up to 282 lbs. by the time I was 50 years old and was just discussed with myself because I failed again and was in bad physical shape. By the time I had my surgery in April of 2007 thanks to thyroid meds I had lost 16 lbs. and was still morbidly obese of course but on my way to where I could finally live the life that God had intended for me to have, happy and health.
Today I've got help to stop this cycle before it kills me, I have 4 terrific grandkids that I love and want to be around for alongtime.and wonderful friends and family who have supported me in their own way (some more then others.....lol ) to become the person I am meant to be.
