Angela,

Break ups and other things that depress people can make you eat. It has happened to me. The anxiety caused by whatever event causes it. If you are still feeling this way, I found that exercise, whether a simple walk or intense workout helps both to lift my mood and get away from eating. You just feel so much better.

I am sure it is harder for you to find the time to do this while in school. Either way, I wish you luck in your losing weight. emoticon

Well, my calories usually fall on the farther end of 1200-1500, and I can't measure my food for the most part because I am in college. I try not to make bad choices, of course, but I also can't see any nutritional information at the dinning halls. So it's a lot of guesstimation. :/

Angel, do you track every single bite that goes into your mouth? Are you weighing and measuring your foods? Where does your daily calorie usually fall within your calorie range? I will try to help you through this. You can Sparkmail me, if you want...

So, here's the long story short.

I used to be 115 all throughout high school. I'm only 5' so that was a great weight and it is SO difficult now for me not to be even close to that. Currently I'm 20, in college, and 151 pounds and 5'. (eek!)

I went through a bad break up two summers ago (after my freshman year of college) and got depressed and just made cookies and pancakes and ate all the time despite whether I was hungry or not. Since then I've retrained my body to feel hungry and only eat then, but I've gained 35 pounds, I am no longer a healthy weight and I don't feel confident in my body.

I also can't lose weight. I've been trying for ages. I was training for a half marathon and counting calories...didn't lose a thing. I've been exercising regularly (5 days a week for at least 30 minutes as well as strength) and counting calories (although this past week has been a doozy) and I haven't lost a thing. Not even inches.

I'm on tri-sprintec, a estrogen and progesterone birth control and I'm wondering if that has part to do with why I can't lose the weight. I didn't GAIN weight on it when I started it my senior year of high school.

I really have no idea what to do anymore, and I just keep trying and trying, but it's getting to the point where I think I'll never be back to a healthy weight again or be happy with my body. It's been so difficult for me to go from being slender to overweight, almost obese by BMI. I never had self image problems before in my life, but the break up really took my self concept and esteem plummeting.

Anyone have any advice, comments towards the hormonal side, or anything?

It's just so discouraging when I'm working hard and nothing helps and it seems everyone around me is going through successful weight loss journeys.

EDIT: This isn't the board I meant to post this in! I am so sorry!
