S/C/G: 235/235/150

Height: 5'2"

Default

DATE: 11/9/12

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Mimasaka/Sarah

AGE: Almost 31

BIRTHDAY: 11/20/81

MARITAL STATUS: It's complicated!

SPOUSE’S NAME: N/A

CHILDREN/AGES: N/A

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Movies, movies, movies... but also reading, writing, being with loved ones, walking, etc.

PETS: I adore animals but I don't have any of my own

TOP WEIGHT: Almost 280...? I was so ashamed of myself I don't even know the exact number

CURRENT WEIGHT: I haven't checked lately but it's 230-something

GOAL WEIGHT: I'd be really happy to get back down to at least 180. I was doing GREAT a couple of years ago but have been through a rough patch and gained weight again

HEIGHT: 5'2"

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: "Brownish-blondish"

OCCUPATION: Nothing "objectionable" (haha) but I don't talk about it online

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Walpole, MA... USA!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I'll be eating healthy and exercising for a few weeks at a time... then sometimes spiral downward if I'm feeling particularly bad about myself/am stressed out

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I've really come to recognize when I'm feeling vulnerable. Instead of feeding my bad feelings with food I've learned to do other things such as take a nice bath, walk, play with animals, talk to someone I love, etc. I also know that I don't have to COMPLETELY deprive myself of "treats." Everything in moderation

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?: I strive to be nice to others. I'm hard on my own self at times but I just want other people struggling with their issues to know that they are only human. We all make mistakes and that you should forgive yourself (and others) and be KIND to yourself! You are you regardless of how much you weigh

GOAL WEIGHT: 112

HEIGHT: 5'4"

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: Brown (it's supposed to be blonde but I'm growing it so laying off the dye for now!)

OCCUPATION: Occasional bartender and future student.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Glasgow, Scotland

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Self-sabotage & emotional eating risk when a depressive episode combines with stressful circumstances.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm not dieting. I refuse to berate myself with guilt trips for the occasional binge. I went for counselling to solve other problems in my life, and new self-respect grew from that, which makes me want to treat myself well. I've been doing Intuitive Eating, gentle exercise, and little lifestyle changes (officially) since 10 Dec 2012, and have lost 11lbs. I'm on here because of a 3-donut, 2-mars bar binge that I had last night. I'm under a lot of stress just now which I can usually handle, but when this combines with a brain-storm of suicidal proportions, I need some help. For once I'm willing to be kind enough to myself to talk to others who understand, and let that support help me through the hard times, back to where I want to be. Plus, I know myself much better these days, and while I technically have no willpower, I have a lot more perseverance which will help me get back up when I get knocked down

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Not yet

Depressions has been a big problem for me. Each time I become immobilized by depression, I am unable to focus on my professional career, and I over-eat. I can't seem to get this cycle under control.
