Hi everyone! I am a mom of two. I am going through a tough divorce. But, am currently dating a wonderful man. It's so weird to be dating again after such a long time. I am hoping to lose about 48 pounds this year. Then, I have other goals after that. But, this is the first big goal for me! I had achieved that goal about six years ago, but then got sidetracked when my life hit some really tough times. I turned to food for comfort again. I've battled my weight since I was about 16. I had never had a weight problem growing up, but then I put myself on a drastic diet. I got down to about 114 pounds, losing about 25 pounds in 6 weeks. Then, when I stopped dieting, I gained that 25 pounds and continued to gain through the years. I had moments of success. I dieted down to 178 the year I got married. But, I gained about 30 pounds over the next 2 years. Then, I got pregnant, and put on 40 pounds that stayed on me over a decade. I got pregnant again, and didn't gain any weight. Then, I decided it was time to do something finally. I was determined to look good when I turned 40. I lost 52 pounds in 10 1/2 months, I was exercising 1-2 hours a day, and I did look great when I had that milestone. But, then I lost my parents, and went through a divorce and got sidetracked. I was about 40 pounds heavier 2 1/2 years ago, and that 40 I took off quick, but now I am just stuck! I am hoping that I can get off this next 48 in the coming year.

"Fat-shaming may curb obesity" ???
I have read about so many success stories about people who have lost half their body weight and kept it off for years. And, I'm guessing for the majority, it was not their first attempt. Good Luck!

I need some advice
I would recommend about 2,000 calories a day. Weight comes off quicker in the beginning, and then you can always decrease as you get closer to your goal. And, I've read that you can cause your metabolism to slow if you go below 1,200 calories.
