performance: losing 0.6 lb a week


My problems with overeating started when I was young, about 8 years old. I'm now 34 and STILL have the same battles with food as I had when I was young - same old cycles of comfort eating, punishment and guilt. About 9 years ago I joined Slimming world and lost 3 stones, and was the happiest I've ever been. I kept the weight off for about 2 years, then gradually put it all back on, and them some... I'm now 8/9 stones over a healthy weight.
Since Slimming World my problems with food have increased 10-fold, sometimes I feel like I've thought of nothing else for 9 years, my weight has been at the forefront of my mind 24/7. I don't blame the plan at all - it's a really healthy way to live and think, but I think a combination of knowing how good it felt to be a healthy, and becoming acutely aware of what I ate and of my actual weight, meant that my issues were exasperated.
So, enough of the brain-dump. My health is starting to suffer, and I feel much older than my years. Every time I start a diet or regime and crash, I put on all the weight I lose, plus another stone and it has to stop.
Last year I did the couch to 5k plan, and completely loved it, was so proud of myself, along with the plan was a website and blog with help and support from other '5k-ers' that really helped. I'm hoping that I might find a similar support network here with some peeps looking to get healthy.
I think that 2013 is there for the taking, and I'm damned if I'm going to waste it...
