Fighting the good fight!

My name is Amy and I am over 120 lbs overweight. I have struggled with binge eating disorder and bulimia for the past 10 years. I am finally getting some control back, but finding myself at my highest weight ever. I am desperate to lose weight the healthy way and finding some hope in SparkPeople.

My Goals:
Mini Goal : 20 lbs
Reward: Mani/Pedi
Date acheived:


My Program:
I have looked up my ideal calorie and fat intake for weight loss and will continue to reset those as I lose weight.

Fitness goals for now is 30 minutes of exercise every day. I bike around Chicago a lot and am generally quite active, so this won't be a problem. I have also become a Zumba nut so this makes it easier.

I am starting a low glycemic food plan because my prediabetic aunt has had great success with it. She says she has more energy than ever before, which is what I want! I also want a plan that is flexible and can work with my busy lifestyle.



Personal Information:
I was raised in Southwest Florida. My mother died when I was 2 years old, which contributed greatly to my lifelong struggle with weight. My sole guardian used food to cover up emotional pain, then as I was entering puberty I got a step parent who used food to control me. It's taken years of therapy to uncover this, but now I know it and own it.

I moved to Chicago in 2008 with the love of my life, and now husband. He still thinks I am sexy, but has a serious problem with my weight because it makes me snore and he is worried about my poor health in the future.

Other Information:
I desperately want to have kids after a few years and I cannot start a pregnancy until I am at a healthy weight. Another MAJOR goal of mine is to not allow the same issues with food to creep up on my kids. I really want to be a teacher of a healthy lifestyle and I cannot do so as an overweight person.
