Smile Hey there - I'm hooked

Hello everybody, nice to meet you

I'm hooked - hooked on sugar, hooked on eating, chewing and gnawing everything that comes along my way.

Just the mere thought of dieting causes me to hoard food - just in case (don't know which case exactly though).

I tried dieting before and even had some success, but I always regained my weight.

I did WW twice, but I felt that my mothers constant nagging discouraged me quite fast. She has her opinions about dieting and I have mine - they clashed.

Now I live on my own since 2010 and I think it is time I take care of myself.

With over 300 lbs I have a long road ahead, but I hope I can find inspiration and motivation at this forum.

If you have any questions I am happy to answer.

You have to want to be healthy and slim more than you want sugary treats--simple as that.

All of us had our addictions (and still have) but must ask ourselves every time we're tempted: what do I REALLY want here???

The good news is that your sugar habit is just that--a habit. You can plan your food intake, work your plan, and gradually see your sugar habit fade. Or at least come under good control.

I'm writing as a major chocoholic who has come to grips with this issue...if I can do it, it can be done.

You have to want slim MORE than fat...every time you eat. And it works.

I strongly recommend Beck's books which teach self-discipline in eating...they're the only ones that worked for me. Every decision about what you put in your mouth either strengthens you or weakens you--I had never thought about it that way. In fact, she stresses self-discipline (or making good choices) in other areas of a healthy life--and it WORKS.

All the best to you as you opt for health and looking fabulous.

Welcome to the forum! My first piece of advice would be to look at your eating plan (diet) as a healthy lifestyle change. Get excited, you are doing something GOOD for YOU, try not to think of it as a punishment.
Second, do not look at the total you want to lose, that number can make you think it is impossible to reach but guess what? It's NOT! Break it down into mini goals and celebrate each pound lost!
Do not give up, you CAN do it!

Thanks everybody - I already feel motivated
I remember from my earlier diets, that I actually felt so much better after loosing just a few pounds - it makes such a difference!
Blueheron thanks for the book tip, thats a really good idea! I felt a bit awkward writing that specific problem of mine down, it feels so very personal ... thanks for the suggestion.
NEMom, mini goals is also a really good idea, I will do that for the beginning
I have been reading around the forum and site and I believe that I will do calorie counting instead of one specific diet plan - it doesn't make me think of what I cannot have, but of what I can have
Positive thoughts! :P
Thanks again all of you.
