Welcome! I haven't been on here long, but this is a really great group!
I agree wholeheartedly about the WW limitlessness... I am someone who needs more structure than that. Any of the (many) times i was on WW, I would purposely choose things that I can eat a LOT of, like air-popped popcorn or WW foods. I ate more refined carbs than ever! I avoided protein because meat "cost" me so many points. That's just not right. sometimes I would eat next to nothing all day so that I could consume all my points in alcohol, but yet I still felt like I was "on-program". Wonder why that didn't work for me?... hmmm... lol
I have also struggled with the ol' binge n' purge off and on most of my adult life. It seems to be my fall-back when I am feeling out of control with my life. The only times I have ever been in control and not obsessing about food is the times I have been LCing... Atkins in the late 90's, South Beach, The Dukan Diet, Ideal Protein...
But I am committed to not wasting another decade of my life feeling awful. I have so many wonderful things in my life.... two healthy great kids, an ex I don't hate, a boyfriend I love madly who supports me in everything yet loves me just as I am, a job that fulfills me and half-decently pays the bills, a house that is mine, a car that runs... What more could a girl possible ask for? Oh yeah... not feeling physically ill all the time. So it's go time.
(wow! sorry, this was just supposed to be a WELCOME post, lol)
