    I would feel like an amazon with a big butt standing next to you! LOL (I'm 5'8" tall...)

I am so impressed with your commitment to yourself - you've done great. I think this weight loss journey is about so much more than weight loss, and you are definitely on the right track.

I am cheering for you!! You can do this!

Sandusky trial

Friday, June 22, 2012

I'm a sexual abuse survivor and watching the Sandusky trial is probably not a good idea for me right now. What upsets me the most is when Sandusky's wife, colleagues, defense lawyers attack the victim's credibility, which is TOTALLY moot in my point. What can you expect a person to turn into when a part of one's life is taken away like that. You are beyond damaged at that point. I was lucky enough to get some therapy early on. But the reactions of those incahoots with Sandusky reminds me of my own family. When I came out about my dad being a sexual predator, they protected him, not me. And still living under his roof is not making things any better.

Anyways, in relation to this site, I am in the mood for a full on binge. I wanna go to the store and buy a package of those Nestle drumsticks and finish the entire box. And then eat an entire bag of potato chips and dip.

... thanks for letting me vent

Well, I didn't buy he ice cream, but I did get the chips.

    I'm not familiar with Sandusky Trail. It sounds like you are getting a handle on your past abuse, and knowing why you have "eating" issues is half the solution.

Chips are one of my biggest downfalls. I've had to go to the sink and pour water in the bag so I'd stop eating.

Congrats on your fantastic weight loss!!!!

    Hang in there, you know they'll find him guilty! Don't let the bad guys overpower you!
Put those chips away! emoticon

The secret to losing weight

Sunday, June 17, 2012

What is the secret to losing weight? I AM

It took me awhile to figure this one out.

I went on my first diet at the age of 14. I decided to skip breakfast. Not sure why I started dieting so young, except that puberty came at a very young age and so did the unnecessary munching and overeating after school. College is when I moved into BMI's overweight range. Soon after came the addiction to food and obesity.

I'm a tiny little person and barely 5'1". And before you laugh at my short stature, just remember that good things come in small packages :-) Anyways, being short and probably hitting the 200 pound mark was a huge concern and worried I wasn't able to change this.. I knew if I continued down this path it would be no time before little ol' me entered 300 pounds.

I have tried everything in the past. The weight went up and down. What worked today didn't work tommorow. What worked for someone else didn't work for me. I've read books on weight loss, emotional eating and food addiction; joined weight watchers and overeaters anonymous. Taken hydroxicut pills, tried slim fast... and this thing called a 'dont eat after 4pm' diet.

My point is that I was trying to find the secret to losing weight. I looked outside of myself for the answer. And there is nothing wrong with that. Doing this alone is probably not a good idea. But 20 years of fluctuating weight I figured it out.

I am the secret to losing weight. Nothing or no one will bring me to good health. I am the one pushing the food in my mouth. I made all the choices and decisions in life. The secret to losing weight... was me.

300 pound

    Good for you. I can relate to what you are saying. I have pretty much yo yo dieted since the age of 12. Around that time someone at school decided my nickname should be Shamoo. Kids can be cruel.
