I know how it is to be around people that don't quite get it. I also understand the addiction to food. Focus, take small steps, and know that there are lots of people here rooting for you to succeed.

It's difficult to stay focused when that [insert food of choice here] is calling your name, right? One thing I've found to be true is you can't just stop unhealthy eating without replacing it with a new activity. I like to crochet and knit. It keeps my hands and my brain busy so not only am I not thinking about food, but my hands are busy also. Do you have any hobbies that don't lend themselves to eating at the same time? Can you take a walk when you start to feel an urge to eat something unhealthy?

Hang in there. You *can* do this.

It has been very difficult having the passion and motivation to lose these 66 lbs. My family that I live with do not eat very healthy at all and it has become an issue. I have an addiction to food and it does not seem to matter to them. My problem is that if it is around me, I will eat it whether I am hungry or not. I do use it as a coping mechanism for my anxiety. I really need someone I can talk to to be there for me when I feel like caving in. I am just starting to become serious about losing 66 lbs so I can be down to my weight before I had my daughter 2 years ago. Right now I am 211lbs and I want to get down to 180lbs by Dec 31 2012, and 145lbs by May 2013. I want to feel good about my body for the first time in a very long time. The ironic thing is, I eat because I'm sad, and I am sad because of my weight. Isn't it funny how those things happen...
