Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: So far my biggest hurdle is noz going back to eating unhealthy foods. I have cravings and i get angry at myself many times for giving in. I think i have a binging problem because whenever things go wrong i just eat and eat amd dont stop. I really want to get past this hurdle.

Following any specific plan: I am on a low calorie, low fat, loe carb diet. Originally i was only taking in 1200 caloties a day, but that was not so healthy so i try to not pay such close attention anymore.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I really am determined this year, more so than last. I lost 50 pounds last year but gained back twenty once i went back to school i just failed to keep a routine. This year I hope I can change that.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have a good life, a boyfriend who loves me dearly, but how can you love someone fully if you cant love yourself. I feel so afraif that one day he will get sick of my weight amd leave me even though he assures me that will never be true. I just want to like myself, for once, finally.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I no longer have a mentally abusive boyfriend. My solution to weight loss about 2 years ago was anorexia.

Hi whatsammysaid! I can definately relate to your story...I was in the same kind of relationship when I gained my weight, as well as dealing with a non-weight related health problem, and in the middle of studying for a degree. I've finally decided, like you, that I need to build an external support system because I am embarrassed about how heavy I've gotten, so much so that I don't tell people how much I weigh, or that I'm trying to lose it. I hope this site will help to keep me accountable for my actions, and I can be more open with people I don't have to work with, etc, every day! Be strong!
