Hey all!

I lost 3 and a half lbs this week - in my 4th week!

ive struggled with my weight for years going to different clubs and trying out different diets and nothing worked for me until this!

i am finding it so easy to follow the plan
and i dont feel like Im missing out on anything as I always had before.

I started comfort eating with candy when I was in highschool, as I was always being bullied because I am autistic.

Only when I left school - the eating did not stop. I tried to stop many times but I always failed miserably because I made excuses not to do it, like saying that I am happy with how I look.
Looks have never been at the top of my list anyway, what I look like doesnt concern me as long as I am happy with my clothes (usually Stars and Stripes/ US flag clothes, or my Statue of Liberty costume.)
In my Statue of Liberty costume, I do feel it would look a whole lot better on me if I was thinner, and that is one of the things that is really spurring me on with this.

The main thing spurring me on though, is knowing the fact that the size of me alone is disabling me. Making it hard for me to do certain things, like trim my toenails or put socks on, and when I go to theme parks I worry if I will fit in the seat.

I went to a theme park just yesterday (Blackpool pleasure beach) and one of the rides ALMOST got me chucked off because they couldnt lock the bar down.. (the Bling ride) But i took my coat off and tried again and it went down! JUST! with a park attendant pushing down on the bar and a 2nd one coming and stamping on the bar with his foot....!!!

I am very glad I had already lost some weight before I went there!!

I also know how much losing 13 lbs has helped in other areas, like in the bedroom - lol
It really spurs me on to lose more!!
