Hi, I am 32 years old and still doing the up and down battle of weight gain. I've been fighting this battle all my life and have only been semi "small" at one stage of my life. When I was younger the weight did not seem to wear on me as much, but not that I am older I can really feel the health effects of my weight, and quite frankly; it's scary. I feel like I understand what it takes to loose weight as far as diet and exercise, but I am a sugar addict and turn to it for comfort as well as a coping skill. I'm not quite sure what I'm hiding from, or how long I can blame my job or other stress's in my life. It's so hard to quit sugar, I've tried pills and sugar free goodies, I'm not sure what else to do.....Anyone else out there that can identify? Do you have any advice?
