My Weight Loss Adventure

Well, here I go. Again. I have lost count of how many times I have said, "This time, I'm going to lose the weight." And yet, here I am. At least this time will be different: I'm medicated and getting counseling for depression (should have done THAT ages ago, I love these meds!), quit the gym I never went to anyway and joined one within walking distance of my house, started working with a personal trainer (o-so-very expensive, but o-so-very worth it if it's what works!), and posting on this ...

I am not so sure about the whole public part: sharing my story with an online community, public recognition of the reality of where I am or the declaration of my struggles, but maybe that's what I need. I used to hide food, and I know that didn't work, so wouldn't the same apply for hiding my weight?

Hi Breezie. I also cannot count how many times I have tried dieting. I've been overweight since I was 14. But for real, I hope it is this time. I am new here, but I have been going to the gym lately and I find that I actually like it. Who knew? Good luck on your journey.
