Default Hey Everyone

Hey everyone!

My name is Jenn and I am 26 years old. I have been fat for almost my entire life. I reached my largest at 316lbs and then after 1.5 years I was able to drop down to 206lbs but I have gained back up to 230lbs and I am now having trouble losing it again.

Hoping joining this site and talking to people with similar struggles will help me. My boyfriend and best friend are as big as a toothpick and don't understand my struggles or how I can't eat a hamburger and cookies for every meal.

I'm excited to see how this goes!

S/C/G: Nearing the home stretch


Jenn! Congratulations on getting down to 206! How did you lose weight the first time? Is there any chance of replicating that success by using the same approach this time?

You can definitely do this!
Back in August 2013, I convinced myself to give my plan a shot until October 31, 2013. I told myself then that, when that date came, I would be grateful I had committed myself to losing weight. Sure enough, when October 31, 2013 came, I was deeply grateful and pleased with my progress. It's been 19 months and over 115 lbs lost, and I remain deeply grateful every day. There are no words to explain how worth it the hard work is.
Reached onederland 31.12.2013!
Became 'overweight' (BMI of 29.7) on July 29, 2014!

Current Attempt (Slow Carb Diet, started July 19, 2013) <> Previous Attempt (Calorie-Counting, 2009)

= 10 lbs lost; = 5 lbs lost:
1. 196 lbs = "Overweight" BMI of 29.8 MET GOAL!!
2. 178 lbs = Lowest Weight in 13 years, BMI of 27.1 MET GOAL!!
3. 164 lbs = "Normal Weight" BMI of 24.9
4. 145 lbs = Goal Weight BMI of 22.0
Stay between 145 lbs and 155 lbs

Well the first time I lost the weight, I didn't take a healthy approach. The first couple months I was taking phentermine, and then I stopped that and mainly ate only celery and plain cheerios the rest of the time. I was basically starving myself. So I don't think replicating that will do me any good. What I need to do is stop letting other people influence what I eat and tell my friends no when they want to go to a pace that only serves fried foods or to a place I know I won't eat healthy....just gotta get my motivation and willpower!
