41 years old, based in Washington DC, work as a writer/editor for an education non-profit. I've been overweight my whole life, with the exception of two blocks of 3-4 years when I successfully lost weight and managed to stay on a healthy eating/exercise plan. I have problems with night eating, fast food, emotional eating. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in March and have lost 22 pounds since. Need to lose many, many more. Although my glucose levels get better every week, I'm still unsure sometimes what I should be eating.

I am a college student home for the summer struggling in a constant battle with overeating. Just a year ago I was 25 pounds lighter and slightly anorexic, but once I was forced to gain weight by my doctor, I ended up overdoing it and ultimately reversed my eating disorder to binge-eating. I try to diet, but I always overdo it by eating too restrictively, leading to even larger binges and gained weight. Dieting is all I think about, and I can't live like this anymore.

I am a mother of two beautiful children, Elena & Elijah, and wife of a fantastic husband - Nate. I am a member of the First United Methodist Church in Washington, PA, and am very active. I also am an almost full-time working mom and I have a title abstracting company woth my mother and a friend.
