Hello, my name is Amanda. I just found this website today. I just started on a journey to lose roughly 140 pounds, it is very intimidating so I am on a search to find other people who are going through a similar situation. I'd like to find some friends that can help support me and so that I can support them! I have a busy lifestyle and find a hard time getting my food prepared. I also struggle with binge eating since I have a lot of anxiety and depression. I have also made an appointment to see a psych APRN to help with the mental aspect as well. My goal is to become healthier in mind, body, and soul. It seems like I have tried to lose weight and failed 100 times before, but I am hoping to find success this time. I am open to any suggestions and tips any of you have.

Hey there! I just found this website too! haha! Same here, I have tried so many diet plans and failed at so many that sometimes I am just tired of trying. But I told myself that for once in my life I need to make it work. All those time and effort spent at planning is not going to waste. All that build-up was exactly for this moment, this time, that I am going to succeed.

So all the best to you too! I will be here to encourage and cheer you on!!


Cheers!!

Hi everyone,

I have just joined the site, and am looking for the same thing as you all I think! Just a place to discuss progress/keep me accountable, and also somewhere to vent on the bad days!

A little about me:

I'm 25 (26 next month), female, living in London. I'm very social, love being around people (not that I let on my feelings around my weight to anyone), I also love to read and travel. I have had an awful relationship with food for as long as I can remember. I was always a chubby child, but piled on the lbs when I was an early teenager. When I was 16 I had a horse riding accident, and spent a lot of time in recovery and non-intentionally lost weight during this period. When I was back up and about, I became slightly addicted to restricted my food intake and lost even more weight, but was barely eating a thing. I got down to about 135lbs at my lowest. I don't know what snapped me out of this phase, I think it was seeing a friend go through severe bulimia, and I knew I didn't want to be that person. The weight slowly crept on again for the next few years. The last two have seen a good 30/40lb weight gain, as I've been struggling with anxiety/depression and use food as a way to feel bad about myself, a sort of punishment.

On the positive side, at the beginning of this year I decided to change. I'm bored of thinking "oh one day...", so I decided to start the 5:2 diet. For those who haven't heard of it, it's where you eat 500 kcals on 2 days of the week, and then eat 'normally' on the remaining five days. I lost 7lbs in the first 4 weeks, which, although slow, was a great feeling. I started incorporating a lot of positive things into my routine - a lot more walking, and just understanding more about what I'm putting in my body. Then a couple of weeks ago the scale stayed the same - it was inevitably going to happen at some point - but it was horribly demotivating, as I really felt like I'd been very good that week. It meant that last week was not good. I only managed one fast day, and really pigged out on a couple of the other days. I felt absolutely horrible about it, and couldn't even face the scale on Friday.

Vent over - this week is a new week. I am on a fast day today, and am planning on walking back from work (about 4 miles), so will get my steps in. It would be lovely to connect with anyone who is taking the journey (any age/location/size/gender). Either on this thread or through private messages (I think this site does that?) Please do get in touch.

Have a very happy Monday!

G
