Default Back after 8 years

Back on fitday after 8 years. I had lost 130 lbs - then 4 years ago I met someone and got into a horrible relationship with mental and physical abuse. I turned back to food with gusto and gained about 75 of it back.

But no more. I've cleared out all the emotional baggage and now am trying to get back that strength I had before. With God and friends I know I can find it.

My goal is to be able to walk a half marathon again. In 2006, I did 9 halfs and 2 fulls. How'd I let myself lose that?

Anyway, looking forward to getting to know everyone.
