My name is Anna, and I never thought I would have to say that I need to lose 200 pounds! It really sneaks up on you. I am only 23, and if I have managed to gain this much weight in 23 years, I am terrified of how much I could gain in another 20!

I am 390 pounds which is, honestly, TOO close for comfort to 400. I've been a member of SP since Jan 2007, when I was a senior in HS. I was around 330 then and I lost 70 pounds and got down to 260 and I looked and felt great! (Mind you, I am 6'1") I still could have lost about another 50 or so and been good.

Then I started college, and over the past 5 years I have managed to pack on 130 pounds. 130 pounds!! In 5 years!! That is horrifying. I've never actually thought about it like that. but 25 pounds a year (a little over 2 pounds a month) will sneak up on you quick.

I know *how* to lose weight, and I know *what* to do, I just can not seem to be consistent. One thing disrupts my routine, one exceptionally stressful situation occurs--and I fall off the bandwagon for 6-8 months.

Lets see if I can remember my weight history. I was 180 when I was 10. I was 250-275 by Sophomore year of HS, I was 330 by Senior year, I was 260 starting college, I got up to 320 and then went back down to about 290 when I was a sophomore/junior in college, then I got up to 380, then went down to 369 last year, and now I'm back up to 389... I feel like a yo-yo.

Oh, and I don't have any thyroid/medically related problem that caused the weight gain. I am simply an emotional eater (seriously, when I feel an emotion, I eat it :P) and I have problems with binge eating.

    I've definitley exercised everyday this week. I'm trying out a half marathon training program, however I haven't actually done the full runs yet. I do 1 minute of walking and 1 of running. Saturday I run 3 miles. This is week 1 of training. 3 miles. Soon that number will be 14 miles.

    It's not to late to talk me out of it, Anna.

    Thanks for checking in! I've definitely been absent. I guess a lot going on and I haven't quite figured out the balance yet. I seem to be doing everything all-or-nothing these days. I need to find my focus or just suck it up and fake it until it becomes second nature again! Hope you're doing well :)

    I know what you mean by getting bored. I was extremely active on here when I lost 75lbs a few years ago. But then I gained 50lbs back and got bored with sp and felt ashamed so I stopped coming on here for a long time. I actually just became active beginning of January and am trying to stay active because it helps a lot to get support from people.
    I forgot to change my personal info, I actually grew an inch after being pregnant (yes that is possible) lol. So I am not 5'9. I could not imagine what it is like to be 6'1 but I think tall chicks are pretty. I like my long legs, I just want to one day be able to show them off. Definitely can't right now lol. But I tower over ALL of my friends, I hate that. I would like to have a friend that is my height haha
