Hey, I'm Haylee, and I am here for my own encouragement as much as I am for yours!

I joined this site back in 2007 but didn't use it much. Now that I am serious about weight loss again I plan to be here everyday to stay accountable.

I am currently 230 lbs and looking to get down to 180, then maintain for a while, and then lose more weight until I'm officially not overweight anymore!

My main problem that has always held me back is my compulsive overeating and binging.

I don't know what it's like to not be fat, period. I have been overweight since I was in pre-school and I am 27 now. I began comforting myself by sneaking food and binging in secrecy during my entire childhood and on-and-off throughout my adult life.

My "cute" pre-school chubbiness was never outgrown, because I had learned already by that age that it felt good to eat as much as I could get away with. It only got easier as I got older and was able to cook my own meals.

Exercise was, surprisingly a fun idea to me as a pre-teen, and I started a calisthetics routine that I did religiously for years and did a lot of walking. Lack of exercise wasn't a big issue, the eating was.

When I was 16 I decided "this is the year!" and set out for a once-and-for-all weight loss effort. I learned all about nutrition, calorie consumption, weight loss, and more about exercise. I succeeded in losing 65 lbs that year - from 240 lbs down to 175 lbs!

My confidence was sky-high! I LOVED being photographed! I admired myself in the mirror every chance I got! I learned to appreciate food and really TASTING every bite instead of the binging mentality I had before.

But I snapped soon after that. I couldn't take it. I started binging again like there was no tomorrow.

After that big weight loss there have been several others of a smaller magnitute. All of them ended when I retracted back into my compulsive eating addiction.

THAT is why, now that I am BACK with a new weight loss goal, I can't say for sure if it will be the FINAL one. I sure hope it is.

I will take all the advice, encouragement and inspiration I can get to finally get over my eating issues. I hope my story will become a success story that will be able to inspire others with their problems. xo.
