Old newbie here - I've lurked for years and even posted a bit, a long time ago and under a different account - which I can't remember the login details for, but I do know that I posted too much that could be used to identify me, which meant I then wasn't sharing stuff I really needed to. So I'm back, new account, no identifying details.
I apologise for the terrible username - I swear finding a not-taken not-awful username is the hardest part of social media! Um. I'm female, and approaching 30 at a rate that scares me a bit. I had a gastric bypass in summer 2011 - at that time I weighed 308lb. I got down to a healthy weight, then I got complacent and life got awful (I had a major breakdown) and weight started to creep back on. I had the therapy that I probably needed back when I was big, got back on plan, lost a lot, and then got a horrendous job where I was stressed beyond belief, didn't have time to prepare healthy food (I'm not talking complex gourmet cooking either, but time spent chopping a salad for the next day was time I could spend sleeping and just grab a panini from the cafe at work) and kind of comfort ate and kept myself going on pure sugar. Recently I just ticked over the "overweight" line and decided, nope, I need to get back on plan. I've also moved to a job I love where I do have time to chop salad, open a can of tuna, and even chuck meat in the slow cooker from time to time. I've been back on plan for a couple of weeks, lost 10lb, and already my waist is coming back (I'm sure a good bit of that is water lost and a placebo type effect on my self-image, but whatever, I feel better). I've bought an exercise bike, partly because dragging myself around in the pouring rain to get my steps in was starting to get me down, whereas I can read or watch TV on the bike, and partly because pretty soon I'm moving to a city where everyone cycles around.
Currently standing at 5'4" and 137.6lb. I was happiest and healthiest at about 110lb, so that's my target.
