Weight Loss Support - Haven't been around in a while...

View Full Version : Haven't been around in a while...

I haven't been on here in a while. I'm not sure why?? Usually I only go MIA when I go "of my diet"...but ths time has been different. This weight loss go-a-round, has been different that ever other time. I don't know what finally clicked, but I'm not dieting anymore. I'm not on plan or off plan, I'm not having good days or bad days, though I am still working through emotional eating, but I feel like I am finally seeing the answers.

Ok I know that sounds silly. I feel like my new way of eating and exercising (I run now! yeah!) is a lifestyle. The same way I choose not to smoke (I used to and oh I love smoking, I really do) I choose not to over eat too much crap. Though I still enjoy treats. :)

I have still been losing, but very slowly now. I was like 164 lbs in the middle of May, and now I'm 155 lbs.
I may finally be breaking free from my issues after over a decade of being a prisoner of my crumby relationship with food.
This is the longest / lowest I've ever maintained. I got here in a healthy way, and I don't feel like its too much effort to maintain it.

I just wanted to share that. :)

Congrats! Thats a huge accomplishment! Keep up the good work!

I've been away from here for a while too, but just in the last week, I find that I'm not eating due to stress or bordem. So hopefully I'm finding my way to breaking free of my food issues and having a healthy relationship with food.

Your story is inspiring and makes me believe that I too can do it!

Thank you!!

Thats's great news! Weaning yourself off the need for frequent online accountability and support is a big victory, as much as maintaining has been. You're doing wonderfully!

Thank you all! It feels good after over a decade of spinning my wheels to finally move, even if its only an inch at a time! lol
