all that jazz

Welcome!

"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..
