Hi I'm Mindy. I'm 33 years old and I am recently married. I work as a customer service representative for a company in the financial services industry. I have a design degree and I love all things art and design related. I'm a hobbyist, DIY enthusiast, and a hoarder of vintage and thrift store oddities. I'm a cat person but I love animals of all types. I also enjoy exploring the city and the outlying natural beauty of the Denver area.
I started my weight loss journey at 387 lbs. I started using MyFatSecret after Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass surgery in August of 2012. I used the site religiously at first, recording my food and exercise with obsessiveness. After the weight started to come off rapidly, I stopped using the weight loss tools. Eventually I even stopped weighing in. I have lost a total of 160 lbs but I am far from my goal weight. After a year and a half, my weight loss has totally stalled and I am barely maintaining my weight at 227 lbs.
My life has changed a lot recently. As I mentioned, I am now married, but my husband is a foreign citizen awaiting a marriage visa so we are currently living separately. I tried living with him overseas for 6 months before my return to the US in Dec. After six months of being together nearly every waking moment, it has been difficult for me to readjust to being alone (aside from Skype conversations). This emotional struggle is fueling my overeating habits and I am returning to MyFatSecret for support once again.
