  • I suffer from depression and i am finding it helpful to take it one day at a time.
  • Ottawa here.
  • Thanx SarahFeelingGood! I still want to make an effort, but this rollercoaster of dieting success and failure is very hard on me. I think i will concentrate on eating healthy. Thanx for letting me know your higher numbers still work. I eat too much because i feel bad and i feel bad because i eat too much! My gp was the one…
  • It's just that my life is so empty -- no partner, no family, no friends, no work, just a sweet dog. I'm chronically bored and i use food to cope with my emptiness. Such a mess!
  • I am 5'3" and 220 pounds. I am 48, female and sedentary.

I lost my first two weeks but the start of a diet i always lose easily. Tomorrow is week three weigh-in and i don't know what to expect. I…
  • Thanx for reminding me about doing eggs in the mic. I just bought some and did up three -- 18g of much-needed protein and delicious!
  • I like a free YouTube session here.
  • Good for you! You're an inspiration!
  • My strengths are that i can resist sweet things with ease and that i like working out, tho i am just a beginner. My weakness is salty, fried things like potato chips. I am also an emotional eater and narrowly escaped binging last Wednesday evening after a disappointing day. I was 90% of the way there to cooking up a big…
