We all have our own reasons for wanting to lose weight. My reasons:
1) Health: After 2 years of stomach/intestinal pain, I am finally having an endoscopy/biopsy over Thanksgiving. But I want to change my diet for a lifetime of health after I get all of it figured out.
2) To feel pretty: I would love to be a size 6, and not have to worry about how my lower body pear shaped curves will fit into a pair of jeans (I am 165, 5'8", and size 10-12).
3) Stress relief: Here it is, the main reason I'm joining this site. I've spent the past 6 or 7 years binge eating. I maintain my weight, but only by exercising a lot and restricting my diet on and off. Which, drives me crazy. But it's hard to stop because of the shame of telling family/friends for support, and because with all the hours I work and going to grad school at the same time, it's one of the few stress relieving moments I have--and over the years it's become a habit. I need to break it.

So I ask you to join me, if you are looking to meet the same weight loss goal or if you too, like me, are looking for support. I am hoping to use this thread to keep myself accountable. To post daily calorie intakes, workouts, and other revelations that I discover along my journey.

Tomorrow is Day 1. And in 3 months, on my 24th birthday, I want to be happy, healthy, and eating sensibly, intuitively, and freely. No longer a captive of my stressful binge eating.

Thanks for joining me.
Why do you say you can't do it on your own? If you can't do it on your own how will you maintain for a lifetime? You have to find a source of inner strength and motivation in addition to having supportive buddies or you will revert back.
