I've posted to this page a few times but I am looking for people to share weight stories and how you got there and what you're doing now to change it.
Here's my story: Two years ago a few of my friends left to go study abroad in England while I stayed at school. I couldnt go because of financial reasons so I had to stay and it was a long semester without them. Instead of trying to keep busy and make new friends, I started to fill the void by binge eating on high sugar junk food like cake, cookies, etc. The binging became a weekly event and I ended up spending hundreds of dollars filling myself with food that wasnt my friend but instead is an enemy. It spiraled out of control and today I still binge. During this time, I gained almost 50 pounds and gaining the weight has affected every aspect of my life. I rarely go out, I don't socialize with friends much, and im very reluctant to try something new and get out of my comfort zone.
I want to finally feel happy and get some confidence into my life. It would also be nice to wear new clothes and get some female attention but I have to stay motivated.
What is your story? You can post here or message me.
