Hit Bottom and Can't get out of it...can't help but sabotage myself

Hi, this is new for me..this whole im going to post and get feedback on the fact that I can't for the life of me fix my weight proble. I used to be really good at this, had all the energy in the world and stayed in the same weight range for years even though I didn't like it but it wasn't horrible. This year I do not know what happened I can't lose the weight and I have no motivation when it comes to actually executing hte plan..and to top it off it makes me ridiculously disgusted with myself...so thats me and how I feel in a nutshell

I'm 19 and will be 20 in a few months and for all I know today I could weigh between 155 and 160 something..god I don't even want to think that. I am 5'5" am muscular with a gut and went pant shopping the other day and found out I went up a size that I haven't been in 4 yrs...HELP I just need some good feedback and I hope this isn't too overbearing but I even tried starting a new leaf today and already screwed up..

Sorry if this is super whiny....lol

Hi, I was part of the old comm. I'm an ex-obsessive/compulsive eater, now I'm trying to maintain a healthy weight. This comm seems more orientated towards ED, I hope it's okay that I post here. I've had OC eating issues, so I understand. I weighed 145 in 2005, then weighed 165-170 in 2006. Now I'm 133. I'm so excited. I always got stuck at 135, but today I finally broke through and weighed 133, first time prolly this century. Yay!

Here's my stats:

Age: 31
Weight 133
Goal: 120-125
Height: 5'3"

Here's what I've been eating:
Breakfast: granola bar, made by Kashi, with flaxseed. delicious.
Lunch: lean cuisine or Nutri System meals (I get them at Big Lots).
Snack: Lunchmeat, string cheese, fruit, or crackers. (1 of these, not all).
dinner: another lean cuisine, can of soup, salad with lunch meat added, stir fry with rice.

This seems to be a winning combination for me. I eat this menu throughout the week, then splurge, starting Fri. night. I usually lose 2-3 lbs during the week and gain 1 lbs during the weekend. But I'm trying to exercise at least 2-3 week so I can consume more calories and be healthier.

Hey all.

Glad I was "found" again after the other comm went kaput, and I'm going to repost my stats and things just to get the ball rolling, I guess.

Age: 21
Weight 150 (I'm so mad - for months I was at 145 all happily, then Suddenly Bad Shit Goes Down, and I just ate to feel better.)
Goal: 120-135
Height: 5'8"

"New Dawn" is a bit cultish a title isn't it? It defiantly doesn't mesh well with my dark and spooky facade. I was trying to thing of something inspiring and more alluring than "Fight the Fatty Flab Club".. which might be true. Hell perhaps I should have done the humor spin? But regardless, here we are.

Tomorrow IS another day. That old saw about taking it "one day at a time" it's true. We are food addicts. Addiction is defined as "A chronic, relapsing disease characterized by compulsive behavior and use and by neurochemical and molecular changes in the brain."

Sugar is a drug. It makes you up it takes you down. Carbs are a drug. You over eat to give yourself a feeling... to punish or reward or comfort. We learned some patter somewhere that made this a horrible habit and we are hear to support each other in stopping.

We want to be happy healthy people or we wouldn't be here looking for a support group to help us get where we are trying to go.

I created this because the last community I found ran off in the night like a bad one night stand. I liked the group and I liked the community so I'm hoping they will find their way here.

Tell me what you want in this community that you think will help you and I'll try to make it happen.
So, talk to me.

To get the ball rolling here are my stats:

Age: 34
Weight 250
goal: 125-135
Hight: 5'7"

I over eat when I am depressed or hiding. Right now I am in a slump and trying to find out where my inner motivation went..
