Smile The LAST First Day!

I just wrote a mile-long blog detailing what got me here today. Feel free to have a read, the link is on my profile. It's long, but I needed a good vent. Haha.

In short, I blacked out today whilst bingeing on Dominos pizza. It was probably one of the lowest points I've had in my life. I lost about a half-hour of my life today and it TERRIFIED ME. So I called my girlfriend and cried. A lot. I went online, researched food addiction, and came to the conclusion that I have been abusing food for quite some time now. After the initial fear and tears, I have a nearly uncontrollable drive to beat this. My father is an addict, as are his brothers and his son, my brother. And I promised myself I would never let my need for something get to the point of addiction. Well food snuck up on me throughout a very difficult five years in college and I gained almost thirty pounds. I graduated a year ago as of May and I can say it's been the most anxiety-ridden, chaotic, depressed year of my life.

I am ready to take control of my life again. I am ready to beat this thing to a darn pulp. I'll be damned if it keeps me down!

But I can't do it alone. I need some friends! I am so ready to support you in return. So feel free to share your story with me and if you are struggling, I'd love to help. We can all do this, I know we can, if we stick together. I hope to lose thirty-forty pounds by August...which will kick off a jam-packed wedding season. And I deserve to be healthy...we all do! LET'S DO THIS!

Stay ferocious!

Determination is good and we are all here to support you when you need it! The good news is, once you get out of school you will realise that people don't really care about how you look I remember walking on eggshells waiting for the next insult while I was at school, but once I left and got a job I wasn't bothered by insults any more.
My advice to you is not to overdo it and go hardcore. Slow and steady wins the race. There are plenty of diet guides on this forum, so you may want to start there.

Good luck!

Welcome, kleeinprogress! I wish you the best with your journey to take control. I'm sure it's no biggie, but the link to your blog didn't work for me. Just so you know...

Thanks girl. Trust me, I am the queen of crash diets. I am determined to have a healthy, balanced relationship with food again. Meaning fruits and veggies and lean proteins...all the good stuff and none of the junk! And back to yoga, which I am very excited about :-)

Thank you so much for your support. I may never have seen you or know you at all, but the fact that you responded to this thread makes me believe you are a beautiful person!! So thank you for sharing that with me!!
