Hello everyone. I'm new. I decided that I'm going to try AGAIN starting tomorrow and felt that joining this site for support would be a good place to start. I'm a 45 yr old soon to be single mom of a 22 year old daughter and I'm starting the process of leaving a 16 year relationship that's probably been over for years.
I currently weigh 246 lbs and I'm 5'3" tall. I've been gaining and losing weight since 19 yrs old. The heaviest I've been was 266 I think...the least I've been able to drop down to was 156. (for like a hot minute) (and that was from a starting point of about 187)
I've been on Atkins, Weight watchers, Quick Weight Loss center, the cabbage soup diet, the 3 day diet, South Beach, The Makers Diet, and on and on and on. All of them would work, it was me who would fail. I seriously don't understand why! Well actually I do. I'm an addict with food. Pure and simple. I'm either very strict and ON a diet, or I'm off and eating like a psycho. I don't exercise. I'm being upfront because I need to. Tomorrow I'm going to start Weight watchers with my old book from when it was the points program (before Points Plus)
I'm glad to be here and I hope that I find inspiration, encouragement, and friends.
