I have wrestled with my body and weight for 30 years and have been as low as 103 and as high as 211 because I suffer with binge eating disorder. I am making good progress now in getting well. <BR> <BR> Nice to be here. <BR> <BR> Vickie <em>213</em> Sat, 22 Jun 2013 17:34:48 EST I'm a horrible Yo Yo Dieter Hello <BR> <BR> I'm new to the group and I'm looking for help. Two years ago I found two bald spots on my head, they were unnoticeable but not to me. I went to the doctors and they tested me for everything under the sun and everything came back ok except my iron. I have alopecia areata due to low iron, stress from yo yo dieting. I was told to take iron supplements that my doctor subscribed and have injections in my head. The injections stopped and my hair grew back and I stopped taking the i...

Hope all are drinking their water and will post on here. Wed, 1 Aug 2012 23:42:41 EST MONTHLY WEIGH IN I am starting this so that on the first day of each month we can weigh in, maybe we are not going up and down as much as we think. I know that any yo-yo activity I seem to have is at least in lower numbers most of the time. <BR> <BR> Eve = 138.4 August 1st Tue, 31 Jul 2012 19:15:50 EST What did you have for Breakfast?

I went to TOPS, and I've been on and off SparkPeople for years. No matter what the diet or eating plan, it didn't work because i wasn't really changing any habits. What I was doing was substituting all kinds of "bad for me" foods wit...

I'll be 60 in just over a month and I really do want to live a healthy retirement. At the moment I just feel so demoralised and demotivated, so perhaps joining a team of people with the same problem, this will help me pull up my socks and start yo-yo-ing in the right direction - down for good! <em>46</em> Rosa Mon, 30 Apr 2012 16:21:45 EST Our Bodies are a Gift “I’ve learned through God’s Word that the body He gave me is good.

I worked pretty hard all week and when I did my Monday weigh-in I was up a l/2 lb. I was of course hoping for at least a pound loss and this was disappointing. I have had to fight all day with myself because I feel like I just can't do this without joining some club where you get weighed by someone every week. I want to change my eating habits to healthy habit... Mon, 30 May 2011 23:30:34 EST WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE?

Thu, 29 Apr 2010 15:24:05 EST Yo-Yo Chatter I ended up last week really bad -- up to 147.2 which was up 5 pounds over my lowest weight since starting SparkPeople. I was NOT a happy camper. Sunday my weight dropped to 145.6, but took a little hit back up to 146.0 the next day. I was really good on Mon. so my weight dropped back to 145.6 but I'm wondering how long a person can keep yo-yoing. Why can't I seem to stay consistent? <BR> <BR> I know that late night munching is a weakness of mine because usually what I crave is not the ... Wed, 31 Mar 2010 00:00:03 EST How Often Does Your Weight Go Up and Down? Looking at my calendar I can see no true reason for my weight fluctuations. Perhaps the week-ends are a bit more likely to cause me to gain weight than during the week. I think it's because I'm more likely to eat in a restaurant then, and their food is loaded with salt and fat. <BR> <BR> It may depend a bit on what's going on in my life too as I tend to turn to ice cream or salty, crunch type foods when I'm upset.
