My Name is Emma, and I'm 24 Years old. I still feel strange even saying that, since It feels like last month I was 19 and determined to lose weight. Yet, here I am. 20lbs heaver then my 19 year old self. Weighing in at 225.9LBS.
When I was young I had this idea in my head, the idea, that if you wanted something enough it would just happen for you. I guess I should blame Disney for that. But, as an overweight 12 year old, I was bullied and picked on endlessly by school yard bullies and older brothers. I was sure that my 16 year old self would be thin and beautiful and this would all be a bad dream.
As you can imagine my 16 year old self was just as over weight as my 12 year old self. I had little friends, a low self esteem and yet still hope inside me that it wasn’t me who needed to change it was fate that would make it happen.
In the mean time I was snacking late into the night. Hiding my eating habits from my family and friends, so no one knew just how much I was over eating.
When I turned 19 started to work out. I did turbo jam and took walks and ate under a calorie budget. I has lost 20lbs weighing in at 180. It was the first time in my life I realize fate isn’t going to do the work for me, I had to. You get what you put in.
Course I slipped… had a bad breakup, lost my motivation and here I am 24 years old… 225.9lbs… unhappy with my body and sneaking food around my boyfriend, family, friends and step children. I don’t want to get caught stuffing my face yet I feel horribly guilty after the fact.

It wasn’t until recently that I learned I have an eating disorder called, Binge Eating Disorder. (BED) Sadly, it’s something I will have to fight for the rest of my life.

What I hope to get out of Sparkpeople? Friends, motivation, tips and tricks… and my life.
If anyone is interested in being spark friends I’m VERY much interested. Give me a message.
