Hi I have a food & weight loss tracker diary under the Weight Watchers section, but, as the title says, I have 250lbs* to lose, and I definitely "MITT", so here I am! I've had moderate success (20lbs in just a few weeks) going low carb, but as much as I enjoyed the food, it was somewhat hard to maintain on a restricted budget. I'm now following Weight Watchers and pointing all my food, which has resulted in a 13lbs loss in the first week. Which technically means I have 237lbs* to lose now! I'm aiming to lose 125lbs this year - though more would be amazing - and I'm breaking that down into 25lbs chunks, so I have 5 mini goals for this year and 10 mini goals overall. I think this will help keep me on track and make the whole experience a lot less daunting! 2013 was an exceptionally difficult year for me, and there was a period a few weeks before Christmas where I was trying to decide between suicide or an appointment with my GP. Heartbreak and debt will do that to a girl! Thankfully, I made the decision to visit my GP and I was given a prescription for fluoxetine. I'm still not 100% and I'm not entirely sure I ever will be, but I have made a decision that 2014 will be a year I make big changes and take charge of my life again. I don't want to sit back next NYE and think, I've failed again. I don't want to look back on another wasted year, another wasted opportunity. I don't want to waste yet another chunk of my life. I've spent a long time eating my feeling and hiding away because I didn't feel good enough or pretty enough to accepted or loved because of my weight and I'm sick of it. And I especially don't want to go back to that dark place where I was genuinely contemplating ending my own life. This is the year I break the vicious cycle I've been trapped in for the last 26 years. So, that's why I'm here! I really do MITT.
