Hi, y'all. My name is Marie and I've been living in Texas for 75 years. I'm now ln a small town about an hour southeast of Houston.

My weight was never a problem until about ten years ago, when my husband died. For months after that, I ate Blue Bell Ice Cream for supper every night and the pounds started appearing. I was lonely and depressed and I just kept eating.

Four years later, I finally worked up the courage to sell our beautiful home and move out of Houston. I finally found a neat little town and bought a 1939 fixer-upper cottage. I didn't know one person in this town. So now I was ALONE and lonely and depressed. More pounds arrived.

Then the pandemic arrived, and I went from being a fluffy granny to being officially obese. Last December I turned 75 and was going downhill fast, if ya know what I mean.

Almost a week ago I discovered this website and I'm determined to stop being so darn compulsive and mindless when I eat. Food is not love and it can't comfort me. Gotta find something else.

Hi. I just found this message you wrote earlier this week. Duh. Nice to meet you too. My hubby and I spent our wedding night in Paris LOL. Then we went on to Unity Village for the rest of our honeymoon! That was many years ago, but thanks for the memory.
