Why limit it to "3 skinny chicks" - we can do better than that! My mini goals are real mini - i'm estatic if i can just get rid of one more pound! Two more by Mothers Day would be awesome!

Awesome, so glad we connected! YES we can do this! I just looked into overeaters anonymous meetings. This could be a whole new chapter in my life! (now that the fog is finally lifting on my bad case of denial) =)

OA, is the bomb I've heard. I went to one meeting, and this real skinny lady was running the group, she showed us her pictures, and she was 500 lbs. in them. I was so shocked!!! I'm going too bf!!! You've inspired me already I like it; we're on a roll. Yes, this is a "whole new chapter in"our lives The fog is lifting off bf, of denial for you and me both. We are helpless and we KNOW THIS!! That's the start----->STOP LYING TO OURSELVES, AND REACH OUT FOR HELP, BECAUSE WE'VE LET THINGS GO OUT OF CONTROL. Everybody need to ask questions, seek support/friendship, and right our wrongs. That is LIFE!! If we don't then we fall victim to our self-sabotage. People can wish bad against us, and when we do bad they applaud. But, it is only because our lives got out control. Thats why success is the best revenge. I don't wish bad on nothing in life. I just know that I can admit it now, when I need help and go to the positive, logical, helpful place/s for me. I believe in Maslow's theory of the Hierarchy of Needs, so true and so real!!

I can't wait bf until you come back with your food, bragging. This nice lady at my job is doing the Nutrisystem and she loves it!! Her dil has lost 90 lbs on it.

Wow, 500 pounds! You KNOW if someone like that can get control it's totally within reach for us! I went to the CHICKS IN CONTROL forum yesterday and read the sticky about over eating, and it just hit me! I have a serious problem, it's not a joke!

Anyway I'm happy about taking this first step. How do you do with your dieting on the weekends? Is that your hardest times? What do you do for exercise, and how much?

Definitely its within reach for us, we don't have a quarter of that to lose. That is persistence, and my mind try to "approve" going off, and people do too, they don't mean any harm, but don't realize how we truly suffer from being outta control. I found the OA site and the locations in my area. I'm going too, the next one is tomorrow, wish me luck that i get my lazy butt there, lol. I'm visiting chicks in control in a minute, I loooove that name!!! Nope its not a joke, really it isn't about our eating behavior.

I do fine with my dieting on the weekends, I see it as another day, the only way I see the weekend different is because I can rest. When I exercise, I just walk, but not nothing purposefully. I do it when I'm on my way to work, at work, or on my way home, getting extra walking in like I'll walk instead of using the bus all the way or 1/2 the way. I will use the stairs when I feel like it, but not force myself, then I'll hate it and quit all together. BF, I can't ask you what you do with your dieting and exercsise until you implement your food. But, have you started some lil things as of yet, and if so what?

Where are you from April? I really haven't done anything as of yet. When I do get my food, I will walk on the treadmill or go for walks around the neighborhood. I have three kids so I need to LEARN HOW to eat so that I can teach them. Thankfully they are still young enough to change their little habits.

It is true that people don't realize how out of control we are. It doesn't seem real, it seems like an "exuse for being fat". I bet that is what people that don't suffer from this think. Honestly, until I read that post, I didn't realize that it is truly a sickness. I can't wait to start going to those OA meetings. Mine are on thursday night. I am glad that you are going tomorrow. Like someone told me- that takes courage. I am proud of you and you should be proud too! You're standing up and saying "I'm taking my life back!" Let me know how it goes. I want details, details, details, so that I can get an idea of what it will be like. Goodluck!

Hey bf, I'm in Cali too. I'm in Long Beach, what about you? Like I said I've been there to OA before, just once, I wasn't ready to admit my sickness. I can't wait until tomorrow for OA, I'm going back to church too, so a metamorphisis is happening. My goodness bf you're the one doing great!!! I mean you're looking out for your babies so that the bad habits won't rub down to them, because we know that what we look like affects us. We're standing up bf!!! Together we stand, and when one gets weak the other help hold up the other. That's why success is not a single effort, its joint, and I'm down with ya bf.

BTW, when you feel ready, if you wish so that we can know each other and that helps to draw us closer, if you can answer the questions I posted initially within this post. If you have any extra to add on, feel free, I'm open!
