Hi Amanda, I'm definitely here if you need anyone to talk to or help or hints or motivation! Don't beat yourself up for the pizza, just realize the error and say I won't do that next time. We all make mistakes, but it's how we learn from them that will help us make better choices towards our health in the future.
I just read your post and am willing to be an accountability partner for you. My name is Ann. I could use someone to hold me accountable also. I am quite a bit older than you (I am 49) and have more weight to lose (I am at 235 right now) but would like to get down to the same range about 130.
I was recently diagnosed w/ PCOS (I know, what took so long) but have had symptoms since my teen years. Again, not something so bad I couldn't function but probably not normal either. As I got older, I thought it was just part of aging and as the weight piled on I was told that was probably causing my problems instead of the weight being a part of the symptoms. People who know me and spend time with me always say they do not understand why I am heavy because I have relatively good habits and am very active. I know if I was more disciplined with using SparkPeople I would do less yo-yoing and feel better overall. It has been a while since I tracked my nutrition or exercise.
Let me know if you would like to set up an accountability system. I completely understand if you would prefer to work with someone closer to you in age or beginning weight.

Hello all, My name is Amanda, I'm 20 years old, 5'3" and looking to get down to about 125 - 130 pounds. As of right now I'm in the low 170's/high 160's depending on the day. I certainly don't have mild PCOS but it's not that severe either; as I know many have it worse than I do. I don't just want to lose the weight, I want a healthy life style change.
I've been slacking off for a long time and I just got done eating.. four slices of pizza. I'm really disappointed in myself, I was upset and just ended up eating crap to make myself feel better. I am now on here looking for a reliable weigh loss buddy that had around the same amount of weight to lose and that is willing to communicate every day or every other day about what we've been doing. I'm hoping I can find one on these forums or somewhere else, who knows. Just would like to feel like I'm not the only person dealing with PCOS, because it does make you feel like you're struggling alone. :(
