Hi. My name is Monica and I`m 22 years old. I`m an Italian au pair and I live in California right now . (Sorry if my English is not very good. ) I`ve always struggled with my weight and the obsession of food, but since I moved here (and I`m alone, I mean without my family and friends), I`ve started eating unlimited. I gained almost 40 pounds in 4/6 months, and I`m so upset, hopeless, but in the sametime I feel very determinate. I want to lose all the excess weight I have and become an healthier and happier person.
My current weight is 107 kg (236 lbs) and my goal is 55 kg (120 lbs).
I`m an emotional overeating, so my first goal is to understand my self, the better I can, before being in a binge.
My second goal is to try to eat health: a lot of veggies, protein,fruits and drink a lot of water.
My third goal is to do sport.. walking, running, volley ball, swimming.. everything is good.
My last goal, but not less important, is to be constant.

Ciao Monica and Welcome to the "Italians and Friends of Italy" team!
I am also Italian but have lived in different parts of Europe in the last ten years. Currently (and hopefully for long time) I am in Austria.
I do keep all my public communications and messages in English for everybody's benefit: however, feel free to write to me individually in Italian if you prefer.
Congratulations on your weight loss: nearly 10Kg. That is a great achievement.
I look forward to get to know you better on our threads and team challenges.

Darling Girl, I read your post on Emotional Eaters and I wanted to reach out to you personally and just offer myself to you to talk with anytime you like, I too, find myself eating from bordem, stuffed down feelings, loneliness, shame, depression, feeling like there is really no hope, so why try. There is HOPE, we have hope, we can reach our dreams, we can do anything with Christ. I am here for you, I will listen, and I will tell you the truth as I know it from personal experience. God is Good to us everyday, he knows our pains our hope our dreams, the crazy thoughts of failure running thru your head, are not the Mighty words of the Living God. Dont listen and dont stop fighting for the you, you are to be.
Hugs and love
