It's nice to meet you! My name is Jo and I'm 25 years old. I have struggled with my weight my whole life, from being fairly young. I've dieted, and yo-yoed and lost and gained and I'm weary of it.
I've had so many times where I said "This time, for real! I mean it". Usually I'd make it about two weeks and then the sabotaging thoughts would come back. "It doesn't matter! Eat those cookies, who cares what you weigh!"
The answer is that I care, and this time I'm going to try reaching out for support which I've never done before. I hope that maybe not trying to go it alone will lead to more success.
I'm wondering if some folks can share how they utilized this website to help them in their journey. Is there a place to post my daily successes and struggles? Do people track their weight and their pictures?
I'm also looking for other folks here who are vegan because that's obviously a big part of my relationship with food and something that will be a part of my weight loss journey.
Thanks everyone for listening to me ramble! I've had a great day food wise and I'm heading to the gym tonight to have a great day exercise as well.
Best of luck to everyone in their journeys!
