I was nine years old the first time I binged and I was put on my first diet at twelve. I wasn't actually over-weight until I was eighteen or nineteen years old. That was when I was able to purchase food with my own money and could eat when and what I wanted. I put on about 20 pounds each year until 2 years ago.

In August 2007 and at 670 pounds, I started a binge eating program through my HMO. After that was over, I paid out of pocket for a different eating disorder program. During the last 18 months, I lost about 50 pounds. I realized; however, that I would need to do more in order to be able to lose enough weight to be able to move around and live the life I wanted. So, in January 2009, I joined SparkPeople.

every day make goals that is what I am doing, each day I walk , measure my food, get my water in, I just started over, I have long talks within myself. remember it did not happen over night to get the weight in so it does not happen overnight to get it off. You can do this have a blessed tomorrow!!
