Getting Healthy

I had lost weight some years ago on WW and was not able to keep it off. I became obsessed and started to binge eat for a few years. I would beat myself up if I couldn't stick to my latest attempt at dieting, and then binge again, it was an endless cycle. I just couldn't go on that way anymore, hating my body and being a slave to counting points or calories.

I had lost weight some years ago on WW and was not able to keep it off. I became obsessed and started to binge eat for a few years.

I'm in such a better place with myself now. I have a close relationship with God and that has changed everything for me. I still have my struggles, but I'm so much more at peace with myself.

Hey girl!

Thanks for adding me as a friend. Although I've been doing really well on SP, I had a rough morning when I didn't lose anything this week. I know there will be weeks like these so I decided it was finally time to incorporate exercise and I feel much better after my walk. I need to remember, it's not always about weight loss but it is always about health. And, we seem to have something in common (the binges) and I'm sorry that therapy didn't seem to work for you. I have to tell you that it is working WONDERS for me and I'm in a much better place. If you keep having difficult, you might want to try another therapist. I know I had to "shop" around to find the one that finally hit for me. Good luck focusing on yourself, we can do it!

Thanks SOTM for adding me as a friend! I definitely identify with what you are talking about on your page here. It has been a long process to get to a point where the binges are less prevailent. I am reading "Intuitive Eating", and that has a lot of great concepts. I wouldn't have been ready for this book a year or 2 ago, but now it is something that really is sinking in. Check it out if you want.

I'm taking your advice and cutting out sugars to try to control my binges. You look great so it must be working for you. Thanks for the tip from your therapist!
