Tweet Hello! My name is Rachel, I am 35 year old wife and mother to one 15 year old daughter, living in Maryland. I have worked my entire life up until April '10 when I had a work related accident. Since August '10 I have been working from home and loving it. I have been struggling with weight my whole life. I am at my highest weight right now at 240lbs and at 5'3" this is a huge struggle. My goal weight is 140lbs. I am currently in a gastric bypass program and see a nutritionist monthly. I have been in this program for over a year and feel as though I keep failing and turning to food for comfort. I make no excuses for weight and that is why I have joined this project. I need support and I need to communicate with women who have the same struggles I do. I am looking forward to finally having a more stable support group.
