Hi, Susan. I too had a problem with alcohol consumption periodically while being in the military. I just decided enough was enough, when it continued afterward and I couldn't blame it on work and have stopped. That has been quite sometime.
I am in the 100 pounds group and there you will find all the love you need and information, but it is more than that, you will find support and although initially, it might be hard to jump right in there, I have only been there three weeks and I am just one of the crowd. We talk about our eating plans but we also talk about what is bothering us if something is pressing. I think that might be more of what you are looking for. Some are younger than you and I think one is about the same age as you. I think I am the oldest at 52. So, come and join us! We would love to have you.
