Lets start from the beginning. I was stick thin growing up but in my late teens due to some personal crises I started putting on weight. At my highest I weight 197 lbs (i'm 5'7"). I did lose the weight around my 24 birthday but then I took it too far and at my lowest I weighed 92 lbs. urghh! Starvation just gave me more control of my out of control life.

Anyways after a health crisis I decided to not be suicidal anymore and started putting the weight back on. I started bingeing uncontrollably and ended up at 185 lbs. A couple of years later i naturally lost 20 lbs but just not bingeing and not thinking about food all the time. Kept myself busy - that sort of thing.

Now i'm going to give weight loss another go but hopefully with a healthier mindset. Do not want to end up in a hospital at 4 am this time. And well atkins is going really well for me, i've lost 5 lbs and I look healthy - pink cheeks and all. I have loads of energy and best of all I feel full and I do not crave food all the time.

Lets hope I can stick with this and make this work for me as a lifestyle. I want to be as close to my GW of 121 lbs for my 30th birthday as possible. I turn 30 on July 12. Can't wait to fit back into some of my old clothes (really expensive clothes). :)

Enough with vanity. Tell me your weight story?

Moving on to OWL
Two bits of info that helped me transition.
1. Add only 5 grams of carbs every interval.
2. Keep count of your carbs and weight. Journal everything here.

Best with your journey!

Late night cravings and binging
I would recommend a low carb diet as well. I suffered from anorexia and found that the binging only stops when your body has all the nutrients (especially fats) it needs. Paleo, Atkins etc. are all high fat and that helped me stop binging on fatty, sugary treats.

Best of luck!

Starting over
Hi there! I'm 29 - 5' 7" and want to lose 19 odd lbs.
I'd love some motivation because this whole weight loss thing is so up-and-down. and the less I have to lose the harder it gets. I'm sure you'll lose a 100 lbs before I lose these 19!

Sending you a buddy request.
