Hi! I'm Liz, welcome to my page! :) I hope you can find something interesting, motivational, and/or helpful for achieving your own goals :)

GOOD LUCK!

When I was in high school (graduated in 2006) I was very active. I wasn't in perfect shape, but I was doing pretty good. You wouldn't look at me and think I was overweight. In college the focus went from being active to studying and having a social life, which made me gain 20lbs or so in my first couple years. And then ...

GOOD LUCK!

When I was in high school (graduated in 2006) I was very active. I wasn't in perfect shape, but I was doing pretty good. You wouldn't look at me and think I was overweight. In college the focus went from being active to studying and having a social life, which made me gain 20lbs or so in my first couple years. And then during my junior year I became incredibly depressed. I stopped going to classes and hanging out with my friends and I stayed at home sleeping and eating. This caused my weight to skyrocket... I gained over 100lbs over the next 3 years and have been battling the last couple to get it off. I have had some success in the past, but each time have gained it all back. This past time I gained it back and then some, putting me at my heaviest weight ever (just over 300lbs). I really think I can do this, and I'm finally at a point where it seems like things are coming together for me to succeed :)

Thanks for responding on my page. I don't want to inundate your comments section with sounding like I'm a know-it-all, but I have some ideas, if you're interested. I'll send them to you separately, if you are. Please don't feel obligated. One important skill for all of us is to recognize when we feel we need to bide our time a bit on the journey. I know for several months before my turnaround, I recognized that I wasn't willing to do even one dang thing different, so I quit asking myself to! Even now, I know I could probably be thinner, but I'm not willing to eat A LOT less, and exercise A LOT more right now, and I'm pretty sure that's what it would take, so I don't hold it over my head. I leave the option open that that could change, and I have the freedom because I have no complicating health conditions.

No matter what, warmest wishes for now and the new year!

Saw your post on LBF and saw also that you lost quite a bit of weight. Have you been relapsing? Or is the binge behavior new? Just curious. You don't need to answer. emoticon
