Talking I'm due for an intro.

Hey everyone!

I've been lurking a while and I've posted in a couple of threads, but I decided it's about time to post a proper introduction.

I'm 25 years old and I live in the Midwest, but my partner and I are in the process of relocating to the Bay Area. He's there now, and I will join him when he finds a job. We've been apart a month and a half and I've no idea when I'm going to see him again. But, life goes on.

I'm a vegetarian who would be vegan except for cheese. I'm addicted to it but I am trying very hard to eat less of it. I am also trying to eat an all-natural, whole foods diet, which works most of the time. My exercise of choice is Dance Dance Revolution.

My goal is to be on the high end of what's considered a healthy BMI, which means I need to lose 80 pounds. I'm a very emotional eater-- especially when I am bored or sad. I have lost count of how many times I have said "I will start eating better tomorrow, FOR REAL THIS TIME. I deserve this right now! It will make me feel better." Of course it doesn't. But... you know where I'm coming from.

The good news is that I am in the habit of exercising every morning. The bad news is, come afternoon/evening, the eating things that aren't healthy for me starts. So the scale hasn't budged. I'm at least grateful that I'm not at my very highest weight right now, and that I'm not gaining.

Other than losing weight, I'm into... um, well mostly I just work. My secret indulgences are cheese pizza, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and doing silly things like riding the motorized old people cart around the store I work in when it's night and we're almost closed. I read cookbooks like they're novels and fantasize about being Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray, though I don't even cook nearly as much as either of them. I like playgrounds, coffee, laughing insanely, and telling inappropriate jokes at work.

Um... I suppose that's it. Hi!

You sound quite a bit like me. I understand the eating while sad & bored. I also eat when I am mad. And the inappropriate jokes at work!

Welcome Sashabee!

I totally understand your cheese addiction - I have one of my own!

Thanks for the welcome, you guys.

I... have not been doing so well lately, as far as the eating goes... is there a place somewhere on the 3FC boards to talk about emotional eating? I poked around a little bit but I didn't see anything, at least not right away.
