Hey everyone!

Decided I am sick of being so unhealthy and wanted to give weight loss another chance, except this time I am doing it right.

I have been struggling with my weight for about 15 years now (not long, I'm only 25 Lol) and have always had a strange obsession with eating, I have always needed to over eat/over indulge and really have no real clue why this happens. What makes it worse is I am a big home body as well! and I live a pretty sedentary life mainly due to my IBS and anxiety/panic disorder. I did succeed at dropping about 80lbs in about 6 months, but it was done in a rather unhealthy way (I basically cut down to 300 calories at most) WELL, after all that loss, I still had those cravings in the middle of the night and had sleepless nights with a grumbling tummy and when I met my boyfriend and he made me eat more because what I was doing was pretty bad for me.. I fell back into old patterns with the over eating (not his fault) and have gained well over what I initially lost. I don't feel like myself anymore, I hate feeling guilty about eating and I really do.. I had to basically fire my psychiatrist because all he ever talked about was how fat I have become and shelter myself because of my anxiety and IBS.

Anyway, enough of that sadness!

I actually found this forum through google, and thought I would give it a try.. I read through posts and just felt like I could relate with a good mixture of people and I hope I can create wonderful support systems and friendships with anyone who is friendly

Thanks for reading!

- Chrissy

Welcome, Chrissy! I can definitely relate to your story. Sedentary lifestyle, big homebody, insatiable appetite...... And I'm trying to do this the right way for the first time as well. I'm not losing as fast I was when I was doing it the drastic/unhealthy way, but I'm hoping the changes I make are sustainable lifestyle changes. Having to go up and down that scale through the years has really done a number to both my health and my self esteem.

You're joining us at the right time as we're setting up new challenges in the challenges threads. Check them out and join some---being accountable has really made me stick to this! Good luck and I hope to see you around!!
