DEAR ABBY: As a child, I was sexually, physically and mentally abused. As an adult, I suffered several miscarriages and two of my children died as infants. I have two living children, ages 9 and 16. It should be no surprise that I turned to food for comfort; I ate myself to a whopping 420 pounds. After my marriage ended in a bitter divorce, I decided it was time for a complete makeover.

- California woman rescued after 15 hours on sinking raft
By Laila Kearney SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A California woman who set out to sea in an inflatable dinghy to watch the sunset, spent about 15 hours clinging to the raft after it began taking on water in frigid Monterey Bay, before the U.S. Coast Guard plucked her to safety on Thursday. Two fishermen spotted the woman adrift 2 miles off the shore of Monterey on Wednesday and they called the Coast Guard to send a rescue boat, agency spokesman Roy Olson said. "She seemed to be doing very well, especially for being stranded in 53-degree (12 Celsius) water," Monterey Fire Division Chief Felix Colello said. "I don't know how she survived that, to be honest with you." She suffered mild hypothermia, but she was alert, said Colello, who was present for the recovery off the Central California coast.
