    Good luck! You can do it, eating healthier will help your depression too. Putting better things inside your body will make you feel better inside and out.

    I understand the frustration! Heck, I've lost 100 lbs (25lbs on 4 separate occasions) - LOL - but this time is the last...getting too old for this yo-yo!

    Absolutey get rid. Elastic is not your friend. Getting dressed in real clothes every day is a huge motivator to get moving, too.

    And lace-up shoes! Real clothes and lace-up shoes!

    Congrats on getting off the couch and getting your reality check. It's tough to swallow, but everyone has a starting point. It only gets better from here. :)

    Jeans really do look so much better than sweats, and dark jeans are slimming. I have a pair of jeans that gets compliments (as in, "You're getting so much slimmer!") whenever I wear them. I kind of want to go buy five more pairs. ;)

    Congratulations on passing the snacks and sweets. Don't forget, though - it's okay to have an occasional treat. One donut isn't great for you, but it's also not going to put any weight back on you. I try to have one treat every few days, even if it's just a mini chocolate bar or a sliver of cheesecake. I find that if I don't do that, I give into a binge.

    Good Luck, MFP is great I have been using it for 18 months to track my food, but I have decided now to start using the community section too now as sometimes everyone needs a bit of advice, support & encouragement.

    Feel free to add me.
