Hi everyone!  My name is Norma.  I am 47 years old and have 2 adult children & 1 grandson.  I have been struggling with severe overeating most of my life.  However, I didn’t start gaining weight until after my kids were born.  I have been off and on so many diets.  I hit my highest weight and lowest point in my life in Dec 2016.  I had a stroke just 2 days before Christmas.  At that time, I weighed 311 pounds.  I was able to get myself down to 250 out of sheer fear of death.  However, I have been stuck here for over a year now.  Just bobbing up and down right around the same weight give or take 10 pounds.  I had never thought of turning my weight struggle over to God before.  I am very thankful to have found this page.  I look forward to meeting you all and working with you and God to get our healthy happy selves.
