First let me give you a little background about myself and my weight issues.

6 years ago I was at my heaviest.....385lbs...I seriously just woke up one moring and decided this was the day I was going to go on a diet and stick to it. Over the next 8 months I lost a total of 165lbs! I was on cloud nine. I am 6ft tall so weight 225 might seem like alot to some people but its a lot better thatn 385. I maintained that weight until I got pregnant with my son. I only gained 18 lbs and lost every pound after I had him. For some reason the last year has been so hard for me. I have slowely started gaining a few pounds here and earing a lil more. I have gained 47 pounds since last Christmas....

Every eveing I cry because I am so depressed. I get mad at myself and then promise that "tomorrow" will be different and I am going to stick to it. Tomorrow never comes though. I just can't get motivated to stick to it. When I am shoveling a huge piece of cake in my mouth I know its wrong but I still do it.

I am looking for someone to become a email diet buddy with me. Just for support and someone to vent to when the chocolate ice cream is calling my name.

Losing 165 pounds is absolutely AMAZING!!!! Can I ask why you don't have that as your start weight?

You have definitely come to the right place! I would be honored to be your email buddy - still need one from time to time myself - great for accountability. I've lost 80 over the course of a year and I'm slowly gaining back (due to back surgery), but I'm beginning to feel depressed because I can't seem to get it together.

Send me a PM with your email - I have a blackberry so I'm available 24/7.
