Default From Lurker to Participator

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.

Congratulations, Khristy - Nine days is a super start and just taking it a meal at a time, sometimes an hour at a time, is what will get you to your goal... the time will pass no matter what - we might as well make good choices along the way and get to where we want to be.

Great decision to buy bikes and to get out and USE them! Don't put anything about that down - so what if it was flat - you DID it and that's more than a lot of other people could say on a relaxing Sunday. Good job!

Come up with a few "go to" healthy, filling meals and then you'll always have something in your back pocket that you can prep quickly and have the ingredients available. You can do this!

Thanks everyone. Today I got on the scale and it wavered between 308.6 and ERROR - so I am almost at a measurable weight. LOL
