The whole Break-up and Start over cliche
I'm Nova......My bf and I of 3yrs broke up about a month ago and I gained 20lbs, putting me at 220lbs. So I decided that if nothing else I had to lose that 20lbs and here I am three weeks later and 15lbs lighter. I've always been overweight and I finally have the confidence to do something about it. Sick of my friends saying "You're not fat, just big boned" and ready to change. I suffer with depression so I decided to find as much support as possible and being that I will be traveling quite a bit this summer I figured this way I would have support when I needed it, where I needed it, since long distance calls get expensive and time differences can cause problems. I just turned 19 and I hope to start my adult stretch of life with a body I can love rather than cover and despise. Thanks and Good luck to the rest of you as well. I know we can all do it.

Hi Nova!

Love your avatar - looks like my fiance's cat.

I too have friends that say that I am not fat (when I am not only fat but obese) thinking that they are being kind. It would be easier if they were honest and offered support instead of telling me what they think I want to hear.

Sounds like you are on right track mentally - Good luck!

I recently started dieting because of a series of near break-up scares with my boyfriend of 3 years. He was right when he said I never have the convinction to stick to anything - and it came to light that the best thing I could do for myself was to lose all of my excess weight and be proud of my body. That way, he's in the wrong for one - and the break-up scares won't scare me quite as badly when I look exponentially hotter. ;)

Good luck achieving your goals. :)

Good Morning Nova!!!

I just recently went through a break-up with my now ex of 1.5 yrs. I'd started losing weight prior to the break-up but that was just fuel to my fire. Even though it has been REALLY rough emotionally I have used it as my motivation to really stay on my weight loss plan.
