I'm from NYC and I have also hit rock bottom. I always loved working out but is an EMOTIONAL EATER FOR YEARS.. binge night eater...Yeah the one that does great at breakfast, lunch and workout and eat it all during dinner.

Waking up with guilty just to do it all over again.

Avoiding scales as much as possible, today I found out my weight. I had a Dr. appt and gained 20 more lbs. My pants size also increased as well. pity party much? NOPE!

Just even more motivated to keep on looking forward. I'm happy to be here..

Jan... I see myself in your story. emoticon

My AHHH-HAA (Wake Up Moment) Came in a Dressing Room once again going UP in sizes.

I started BooHooing so bad I scared people! (ppl asking if I was okay)

I found SparkPeople once home that night after searching online for support and help!

I have now lost 28 lbs (down 3 sizes) and need 20 more to come off!

Hi everyone, this is my first post to any forums since I joined a few days ago. I'm feeling overwhelmed with trying to lose 50 pounds - especially since it's 50 that I've gained over the past couple of years after being my "ideal" weight for about 5 years. I thought I had it all figured out, but as soon as I started eating the white stuff (sugar, breads, crackers, etc) I haven't been able to stop. I work full time and have 4 kids, and I stopped exercising after running marathons, competing in triathlons, and being a total gym rat for years. I can't believe how I've let myslef go, nor can I believe I've turned into a binge eater. It seems to have taken over my life at night when I eat and eat and don't stop til I feel sick. My husband lost his job as an exec about 9 months ago, and I know that keeping everyone "up" keeps me constantly stressed. I need some support, motivation, and success with this so I can start to feel better. I don't know why I can't seem to keep on a program and stay motivated like I used to, but nothing seems to work for me anymore, and I can see myself turning into my mother in the near future - diabetic, obese, and miserable. It's just such a depressing, vicious cycle. I'm sorry to be such a downer, but I feel helpless and out of control with my eating. I hit 200 pounds yesterday, and I just stared at the scale and cried. I'm so ashamed that I've let myself get so lazy and gluttonous.
