Okay, here I go! My name is Lynn and I'm 47 years young! I live in California (near Silicon Valley), married 21 years, and have no children. Basically my life revolves around my family, my husband, and our dog's Bear and Moose. Bear is the child we never had, and Goose is our newest addition. We usually spend most of our weekends with Bear either at the beach, parks, restaurants, festivals, basically any place that welcomes dogs. Goose is a a work in progress.

For quite some time my eating habits have gotten worse. I'm required to wear medical scrubs at work, basically wearing sweat pants five days a week, it's very dangerous especially when you have food issues. I’m a terrible grocery shopper, I buy random stuff, I don't plan meals, and when I come home late from work "it's too late to cook". And if that's not enough, I’m a huge worrier (the economy, work, etc.), it effects my eating habits tremendously! But I'm here to say - I will overcome! I feel a renewed hope, found some great tools, awesome support, and I want to feel healthier! Update; With that said I've recently had gastric bypass surgery. Very recently, still trying to navigate my new way of life. This too is a work in progress. I can't say that I've gotten to that place to say it's the best thing I've ever done but keep you posted.

I've found that I love to write in my journal, I bare my soul about food, being fat and hopefully in the future about being skinny. The reason I love it so much is because of the anonymity it gives me; I’m extremely uncomfortable being so open / vulnerable / intimate with friends and family. In the past my journal has not included my interpersonal relationships; family, friends, co-workers, however I've recently decided that's a mistake. Why? Even though I'm not a fan of airing my own laundry the truth is I will I never learn about any journey, any patterns I may have, emotional eating habits. etc. So hold on to your hat, becasue here it comes!!
