Thank you for your encouragement.ive tried so many approaches but nothing seems to help.
Hi Sam. Yep, this is Linda and I am still here. Nice to see you here again. Though sorry you are in a situation that brings you back. But here for you. To update you, I will be turning 79 on my June birthday. Still hovering around the same weight, the past two years or so. Having gained back about 15 lbs from my goal weight of 150lbs. Joined here around Mar. 2018 at highest ever weight of 216lbs. Reached 148lbs in about a year. Mostly following a combination of Keto and the Mediterranean Diet. But gained back some and really struggling. Am yo yoing around 165-170 lbs now. Gaining and losing the same 10lbs over and over. I have a really hard time not resorting back to old habits and just giving up. Reason I still am in this group. I need the support and accountability. I have no really good excuses, but I am an emotional eater. Food is my "drug" to make me feel better. I am a positive person, but still get a bit depressed sometimes. As so many close friends and family have since passed away. And my closest living friends are now all scattered too far away to visit. My depression is not a pity type thing, I just tend to want more to be alone with just my little dog and eat. Sending good wishes.
