My name is Jo and my main goal is to live my life with no excuses.
My weight loss goal is 70-75 pounds (optimistically) though I think I could be happy losing only 50-55 pounds and maintaining it.
I've battled with my weight all my life and have also chose to fight anorexia and bulimia with hospitalization. I haven't engaged in the behavior for more than 15 years but the constant comparing myself to others (part of my eating disorders) lasted until last year. Comparing myself to others caused me to drop out of other weight loss programs like Weight Watchers, Weigh Down Workshop, First Place, etc. Comparing myself caused me to restrict my calories too much while I was in the weight loss programs.
Last year I went to a program at the hospital and I finally think I have won the battle with comparing myself to others. Now I only look at myself and what I am and what I want to be.
I hope all of you find the courage and encouragement you need to reach your goals.
Thanks for welcoming me here.
