"The difference between try and triumph is a little umph!"

Let me start off by divulging something: I am never happy with having to write intoduction texts about myself, and as a result I am always rewriting them.

So, with that out of the way, please allow me to have a go at this. After all, I do want to make a good first impression and I dislike profiles with nothing on them, and I am not allowed to be a hypocrite.

Like so many other Sparkers I have been overweight, or considered myself to be overweight, ever since things like that started to matter, and, perhaps like you, tried a wide variety of diet pills and fad diets. Well, the diet pills never worked and the fad diets only brought on dizziness and binging - oddly, it took me five years or so before breaking that cycle. I swear, I am not usually that dense!

I am sociophobic, triggered by eating and moving (especially at the same time) in front of others. Unfortunately, I was not diagnosed before I was well out of school, meaning I had to force myself through Physical Education and come to hate, hate, hate exercise of all kinds. Add the fact that I was incredibly lonely and my only comfort was can see where I am going with this. I started exercising at the university gym in 2005, and for that reason managed to keep my weight reasonably in check (at about 80 kg/176 Ibs); however, my mental health had started spiralling and eventually I stopped going, for some reason. In January 2009 I reached my all-time high at a whooping 90 kg/198 Ibs. That is when I decided to lose weight.

I came to SparkPeople in July 2010. By that time I had managed to lose quite a bit of weight but had completely lost control; I see now that I was well on my way of developing an eating disorder. I had spent summer of 2009 as an in-patient at a phychiatric ward, and I had promised myself that I would do my absolute best never having to go back there again, for whatever reason. SparkPeople has been an incredible tool and I can happily report that my ED tendencies have lessened dramatically.

What, then, am I still doing here? Because I know I need to lose a little weight but I want to keep those ED thoughts well at bay. I hate feeling isolated in my efforts of toning up and slimming down, and at the same time I want to keep this little project to myself. Virtual friends are therefore ideal!

So yes. That would be me.

Oh! I forgot to add - I have a fetish for cupcakes, butterflies, stationary and non-black tea. Just in case you wanted to know something non-diet related.

    Well we share some heritage! :-) My family traces its history back to the about 1643. LOL

    I've never done LARP (Boffer fighting and some very light experience with SCA is the closest I've dome), but used to play a lot of RPG's in college - D&D and Champions being the two I've the most experience with (and I used to love Traveler, but I don't think anyone plays that any more!)

    Did leave in the UK last year - would love to see Scandinavia and the Low Countries sometime soon too.
