New to this site... thought I'd start out with my most pressing question, instead of an intro.
After so long, I am finally starting to ask myself why I allow myself to overeat and eat the wrong foods day in and day out. I've steadily gained weight since I married 13 years ago and am now topping my scale at 242 lbs. My logical mind *knows* what's good for me and *knows* what's bad for me... and yet I eat none of the good and all of the bad. I might feel gung-ho for a minute or so (maybe I'll get a salad), and then order a fried chicken sandwich and a milkshake anyway...
I *know* I'm fat and I *know* I need to lose weight for my health and for the sake of my child.
Being "chubby" and then "obese" for most of my life, one would think I'd been on every diet known to man (or woman)... and yet I haven't dieted once.
Was wondering if anyone else has been in the same boat and, if so, how did you kick start yourself???
