Default on and off

Sorry I didn't respond sooner - I have been trying to get back on the healthier eating kick, but my willpower is slim to none. Somedays are better than others. If there is food in front of me, I eat it! I have an exercise bike and have been trying to ride it at least four days a week for 25 minutes, but that isnt always possible. I also do some weights, but not often enough. I need to get my food issues under control.

The wedding - got a dress size 16. UGH!!!!!!! (I hear they run big though!) Plans are going well though!

Anyone here know what it is like to be the fat sibling - I have three underweight siblings who could eat 3000 calories a day and not gain an ounce!

Re: ways to lose weight...when I lost my initial weight I counted calories and exercised, but as the years passed, the calorie intake was very low - I usually had 1000-1200 a day. It was impossible to maintain that. I lost the weight too quickly was also I think an issue. I guess patience is the true factor! i give up too easily!

It is wonderful to not feel alone!

Age: 20 (will be 21 in 2.5 months)

Birthday: May 25

Marital Status: Single

Pets: None

Height: 5'6''

Weight: Top:180 Current:176 lbs Goal:140 but will be happy will 150- 155

Treat I have the most trouble giving up: Chocolate, chips

Why I believe I'll be successful losing the weight this time: My weight is affecting my self esteem.........i do not feel confident in front of people (especially guys).........and i think most importantly it prevents me from doing what i want to do.........for instance I want to learn dance but i am afraid to go as i wonder what people will say............. so i think that it is preventing me from living my life ................
i will be 21...........and major milestone in my life...........and i want to get to atleast 155 - 160 by then.......to mark the beginning of a new chapter in my life.............
it better work this time...............i work and go to school full time and so i dont have any time to workout except on the weekends......but i will give it my best shot............

i think this message board and all of u will help me too.

Default Been a While...

It's been a very long time since I've been on. I hope everyone is doing well. I have been very bad here lately, and I'm trying to be serious again.

I had to try on bridesmaid dresses for my best friend's wedding, and I'm officially the biggest bridesmaid...and I'm the MAID OF HONOR!!! The wedding isn't till June so I'm determined to lose some weight before then.

The thing that I need to realize, and I think everyone does too....It didn't take us overnight to be overweight, so it won't take us overnight to become skinny again. patience patience patience!!!

My biggest problem is when I don't see results fast enough, I tend to lose interest or become very frustrated. I have to learn to stick with it and monitor my results on maybe a bi-weekly level instead of weekly level so I can more results.
No people feel more close and more friendly that those who are on the same diet.

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
