Hello. My name is Khristy, and I'm a compulsive eater. I've been "clean" now for 9 days now.
I can't tell you what I've lost, because my scale doesn't go beyond 308.8
, but I figure I must have been close to 320
. I am figuring I am around 309 right now, the scale is almost registering. I don't know why I am happy about that, but I guess it's because I'm not around 320 anymore.
I am a serial lurker on these boards. I come here to be inspired almost every morning. I thought maybe I had better contribute something as well.
This weekend, my husband and I decided to go and buy bicycles, and we biked 6 (albeit flat) miles yesterday. A long ways from laying on the couch all afternoon. I know that if I can get him on board to this lifestyle change, it will make it all that much more easy for me.
I've had one successful diet attempt in the past, that was basically Atkins-style "dieting". I lost 70lbs, and actually maintained it for over a year after quitting. I had only made it to 200 lbs, but I was a size 16, and I felt good there. But then the lbs slowly crept back on, while I looked the other way. I tried to start again a couple of times, but I was terrified of failure. I'm even terrified this time, but I am pulling through. I reassure myself every day that I can do this, that I don't have to make bad choices, and try to visualize myself thinner/healthier.
I have no idea what to do, what to eat - but I learn so much from these boards. I don't know what tomorrow is going to bring, but I know that if I make one good choice a day
, everything else will fall into place.
