It looks like you’ve done well on WW despite all the challenges. When I read your essay, however, I kept thinking, “Should I tell her about Bright Line eating?” Well, I guess I just did. It seems after reading your story that you might benefit from the Bright Line eating program.
Susan Peirce Thompson is the author of the book but she has a website, too, and lots of online support. Although the full program is not cheap, you can always start with the book.
Anyway, thank you for sharing your struggle, and best wishes for a healthy you now and in the future.
