As the title suggests, I am new to this site. I wasn't sure where to post, but I figured the 100 lbs support forum was an apt choice, as I have 100 lbs to lose.
My story is the same as many, always was a heavy kid. Tried different diets growing up. By the time I was 14 I weighed 246 lbs. Then I developed an eating disorder and I was thin for about 5 seconds
, well, between 15 and 19 when I didn't actually eat anything I hovered around 150 lbs. From college onward my weight went up and down, but I never actually went over 200 lbs until 2 years ago. Now I am 28, 250 lbs and I'm 5'7". I blame my past eating habits for the situation I am in now, it wrecked havoc on my metabolism.
In general, I don't eat badly. I don't have a sweet tooth, so sweets is not my problem. I decided to join this site because I figured with so many people going through the same struggle, I am bound to find the support I need. Number one on my list is to start excercising again, that will help me the most. I probably could stand to cut some calories too. I kept a journal for the past two weeks of what I was eating, it ended up being an average of 1700 calories a day which I don't think is excessive and I don't think it should put me at 250 lbs......but who knows I could be wrong? Thats why I'm here.
Looking forwarded to meeting some wonderful People here!!!
Good Luck to you All
