I realized something recently- I still really have no idea why I was doing what I was doing before (eating terribly, letting myself stay at around 300 pounds).
Since this summer, I've had a number of turns for the better- I'm getting straight A+'s now (not that different from before, but still), I'm losing weight steadily, and I quit smoking about a month ago.
Nothing really changed in my life, if anything its gotten more stressful (money's tighter and that always makes my boyfriend and I argue more, and I have a much higher work load with my senior thesis).
I'm thinking that part of it is that I stopped hating myself so much, thinking that I couldn't lose weight or stop smoking or whatever. But I know I really need to spend time thinking about it.
So, for those of you who have been in similar situations, have finally had success in weight loss after yo-yoing or whatever, or success in other things, what's your story?
