Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 2010

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: ? I feel like I've always been trying to lose weight since I was 14 years old, so it's hard to answer this question.

Goal Weight: 110

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Emotional/stress eating

Following any specific plan: Not really, trying to get into using my LoseIt app to count calories, but I only do it for a few days at a time and then poop out. But really I don't think I need to count calories. My body knows when I've eaten too little or too much.

Hi whatsammysaid! I can definately relate to your story...I was in the same kind of relationship when I gained my weight, as well as dealing with a non-weight related health problem, and in the middle of studying for a degree. I've finally decided, like you, that I need to build an external support system because I am embarrassed about how heavy I've gotten, so much so that I don't tell people how much I weigh, or that I'm trying to lose it. I hope this site will help to keep me accountable for my actions, and I can be more open with people I don't have to work with, etc, every day! Be strong!
