Hi. I am an emotional eater trying to lose 98 pounds. Would like to have some buddies to encourage me as well as offer support to them. Not sure how to add buddies but if you send me a request I will try to figure out how to add you. Smile Thanks!

Welcome!! I have approximately 100lbs to lose. I am going to try to use this 8 week challenge as a platform on which I will build a lifetime of good habits. I want to take control of my health. Obviously, neglecting it, isn't getting me anywhere.

Hi! I have about 100 to lose as well! I need someone to keep me motivated, as I have a husband who shows his love by bringing me chocolate and cooking with cheese. Razz

Hey everyone! I lost 140 pounds and kept it off for mmany years. I began with eat less, exercise more, and lost about 5 stones. I then stalled which is very common after dieting for a while and switched to Cambridge. That was unbelievably tough and I cheated a lot but still managed to lose another 3 stones. The last two I lost on vegetarian Atkins. I maintained with ease really until my father died last winter. That hit me hard. At that same time my brother was diagosed with a third terminal illness.

I went back to nibbling the wrong foods - classic comfort eating. However I recently decided that enough was enough! I am sick of buying new clothes every month or so. I have a whole wardrobe full of 12s and 14s that I can no longer wear. The time has come!

If I can lose that much, you can too. Just commit to it, decide once and for all that you are now your way and no matter how many slips you experience you will dust yourself off and keep going. That's what I did, and still do.

Good luck!
