Hi everyone! My name is Jessica. I am 27 (at least for another month
) and I have done everything but change my lifestyle.
In high school and college I was annorexic. I met my husband (boyfriend at the time) who was the first to figure out something was "wrong" with me and he helped me get over the anorexia. He saved my life. Problem is that now I realize just how much I love food and am now an overeater couch potato. I tried diets, pills, Sensa and even a plan my doctor put me on (not those B-12 shot plans).
My father used to be obese too and he changed the way he lives. He eats healthy and exercises. He told me over and over again that I have to change my lifestyle. So I have. Since December. I stepped on the scale and it said 216!
I imediately dumped all those fresh baked cookies in the house into the trash and within a week I was 212. I started to watch what I eat and walking. Today (a month later) I am still 212.
I decided to join SP in hopes that I would find the motivation, friends, and advise I need to reach my goals. I decided to reward myself with a vacation.
I have not been on vacation since 2007 and my goal is to go on a cruise in September at 145lbs.
I need your help. I have tried to do this whole thing myself and have failed. I sincerely appreciate any advise you have to offer, even if it is just a good ol' kick in the butt. I look forward to making friends and also helping others with their goals.
