Current Weight:(21 Jul 13) 203.0 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: New MrsRando's own diet
performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

My weight gain and loss don't stem from using food as a coping mechanism; more like a reward.

I was out on my own at 15 . I got into a bad relationship, had children, got married, and got divorced. I was dirt poor and we barely had food at times. I went through a series of bad relationships and poor choices until finally getting my feet underneath me. I feel I lost a lot of my youth to playing grown up.

Fast forward 5 years and I found a great guy (who is now my husband). I've got a great job making great money. I earned my AAB and am 5 months away from my BSBM. I just bought a house. I quit smoking. But I've consistently gained weight since my and my husband have been together (6 years).

I feel that my eating (and honestly my spending) are based on a feeling of entitlement. I make good money, I've turned my life around, I've earned this brownie, cookie, ice cream, hot dog, pizza, pasta, etc. etc...

I recently hit the 200 lbs mark.. I want to cry writing that. It scares me and makes me feel horrible that I let my weight get this bad. So I decided that I have to start doing something. I have been consumed with taking care of business (house, school, kids, husband, pets, work) that I forgot, or never really knew, to take care of me.

So I'm starting an inch at a time. I'm relearning how to eat. The point is to not gourge myself my to feed my body. I'm learning that exercise is not a punishment; it is stress relief and time alone to think. Learning to be accountable for my lifestyle choices.

My goal weight is 150 lbs and I want to get there by eating better and getting more exercise. My short term goals are to lose 4 lbs each month.

How long did you think it would take...
I estimated it would take about a year. I more than I expected at first which has put me ahead of schedule but it seems that my body really only wants to lose about 4 lbs a month (if that) which is what my short term goals are so it works. I have to just remind myself that slow and steady wins the race!

To warn or not to warn
The whole purpose of journaling is to note the negative things to learn from them moving forward. Weight loss is not unicorns and glitter all the time. There are ups and downs and this site offers support for the positive and negative. It's pretending that everything is fine that got us overweight in the first place.
