Hi everyone! My name is Frances and I'm finally getting the courage to join an online weight-loss community, and this place seems perfect!
Quick profile: Currently 5'4" and 137lbs. Last November, I was ~117lbs BUT I reached that weight via unhealthy means (no exercise/low intake). A range of family issues resulted me dealing with them the only way I knew how - EATING. Now I realise that food isn't the answer, and if I carry on this way, I'll gain weight and unhappiness. I'm looking to get around ~117lbs again but this time I want to do things the healthy way. I now have a gym membership and wish to maintain a moderate intake.
As I've said, I'm an emotional eater...
But i'm totally going to kick that habit! The amount of money I spend buying a chocolate bar here and there, or a bottle of soda, is crazy. I need to STOP this habit asap. I eat when I'm not hungry, all I can think about is food.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has felt like this, so any encouragement is welcomed
I think I just need to take this step - talking to others like myself - to put me on the right track.
Hope to get to know you all better
