Hello everyone :
My name is Victoria and I am new to the team, so though I would swing by and say hi.
I am 51 years old and have finally won my 30 year battle with my eating disorder. It was won thru a tremendous amount of work, including lots of blood, sweat, tears, lots of cursing at the scale ( hehehe ), prayer, determination and hope. Today is my 43rd consecutive binge free day.
I am in the last gasps of perimenopause and as a result, weight loss for me now means counting in ounces, not pounds.
I am a vegan and a cardio maniac. I did 140 minutes on my elliptical yesterday, and I also own a recumbent bike.
I am short at only 5 foot 1, so at 177 pounds, I am still very much in the obese range, my goal is to get out of it and find myself at 150 pounds. Beyond that point, I will let my body decide what it wants to do, it has been thru hell already with me these last 3 decades. If it wants to drop a further pound a month in the future, I will be ok with that, and if it does not, then 150 will just be fine.
Lovely to be here.
