    Hello Everyone,I have never joined a support group, but interested to learn more about the community. I am a 36-year-old mom who has struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. From the time when I was a teenager (who was not fat but thought I was) to now approaching middle age with 30+ pounds to lose. Having trouble staying on track. Any advice is welcome. :)

    Had a bad weekend

    Hi there. I had my first real binge since starting to diet 3 months ago. Not sure why but I just had to have a Pizza Hut smore's cookie. I ate half of it and now feel ill. I know that it doesn't have to define my success but I always get down on myself when I "fail." just wanted to see if anyone else gets this way.

    I don't know how to handle all this crap. Grieving (lost my only daughter 3/17) job (most of my co-workers have a shit attitude, so no matter how I start the day I am ready to quit by noon; also having worked since I was 14 I am ready but not able to retire) carb cravings that just will not quit, and other than the grief all of my friends are in the same boat so nobody has the energy to help...

    I'm having trouble learning how to use this newfangled site. I can't figure out how to change my profile "how I feel" statement or write new journal entries, among other things. This is very frustrating. Maybe they need to create a new support group for this. :-(

    Emotional pain

    How in the world do you do anything here anymore for support?! I'm totally lost!!!!!! I hope someone gets this and I hope more than that I can figure out how to respond and feel supported.
  • This week feels like a "just do it" sort of one. Whether it's walking or picking up the weights, just integrating a habit we can go for on a regular basis. Even if we make time for 5, 10, 15 minutes or more. Either adding something you love, something that works, or just sticking to something and maybe it's just motivation help thats needed, sometimes we just need a fresh approach or something...

    I used to love working out, 6 days a week. Now i find it hard to even get 1 day worth of workout. i do not know if its age, i am now in my early 30's and when i look at individuals in there 40's and even 50's working out i have to wonder whats up with me. I personally dont believe in supplements so i am bit confused.
