Hey all, I'm nervous to put myself out here, but I'm looking for something I've never had before on previous attempts to lose - community.
I've been on and off diets forever, but mostly I've kept to myself about it. I'd share my successes with my family, tell them when I'd lost ten pounds or whatever, but never when I'd fallen off or when I was struggling. I've learned that keeping those struggles quiet has made it easier to fail, to cave to cravings or feelings of hopelessness because of slow progress.
This time I'm looking for some people who are invested in my journey and who I don't want to disappoint. To that end, I'm going to commit myself to posting a status every day on here. Probably usually short, just grading myself on the day or posting whatever is on my mind. But I'd love a group of people who will give me encouragement or tough love when I need it, and I'd really like to hear about others stories and struggles.
So would anyone want to be friends? And if anyone wants to be message buddies that would be fantastic.
A little about me: in the past I've lost 30-35 pounds, which was nice. Then I started an amazing relationship (we're both foodies, and happy people eat together). That and the Corona-dough put me at my highest weight ever. I put myself over 300 again, but I want to see my weight start with a 1 - something I haven't seen in like at least 10 years... I say at least because I honestly don't remember.
Anyone want to swap stories?
