I'm 25, I started on Sparkpeople in 2007, lost about 40 lbs and then lost momentum. I came back after a while and lost more weight and got down to about 235 right before my wedding in 2010. Now it's Summer 2011, I've been married 1 1/2 years and have gained a majority of the weight back.

I lost quite a lot of weight years ago doing atkins. It worked for me and I really looked great but I still felt like the fat girl inside. I didn't do it right and it didn't stick for very long. The low carb way is good for some, but there are a few things wrong with it, (for me) and I really don't think I could do it that way ever again.

I've realized I am definitely a FOOD ADDICT. I use food to make me forget stress and painful feelings. I know I go through cycles of compulsive overeating, and then if I really try it only takes me a few days to get my mindframe back to where I can eat more restrictively. It is possible. I know how easy it can be to forget the difference between HUNGER and "hunger."

I will try to eat to fuel my body rather than because I am bored or anxious. I will try not to let negativity seep in.

I have a wonderful husband who is extremely supportive. So hopefully I will be successful in getting the body back that I had when we met. (Or maybe an even better body)

I will go in small stages of weight loss rather than have one big goal a year from now. I still plan to base my success mainly on how I FEEL and how I LOOK as opposed to the number on the scale.

The quote is Albus Dumbledore, from a Harry Potter book. Yes I'm quite nerdy.

"No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path." - Buddha

    Eww bless you on the tummy bug. maybe you can celebrate next weekend. I'm good actually. I'm still chugging along and dragging my DH with me. I've been lucky so far this year nothing more than a snuffly cold or two.

    Happy New Year! I just wanted to check in and say Hi and see how you're doing? From Thanksgiving to Christmas I have to admit that I was just plain horrible with my eating and I gained a lot of weight back but I'm back on track, not going to beat myself up, and just moving forward!

    I hope you're doing well! I'd love to hear from you when you get the chance.
