I just celebrated logging in 180 days in a row. I thought I'd look through some pics to see my progress, and was pleased with what I saw. I deal with BED, depression, emotional eating, and a few other issues. I have always bounced up and down in my weight, but I can NEVER remember being thin. I wore a size 14 at 8 years old. I have never been small. I am determined to change that.

My problem has never been not moving enough. I keep an extremely active lifestyle and do hard farm work. My problem was eating. I would go through McD's on my way home from work, eat a few cheeseburgers, a milkshake, and a large fry, and then go home and have dinner. I was slowly killing myself, and just getting deeper in depression.

I still binge sometimes. My 180 days have not been perfect. But every day, I have woken up willing to TRY. That's more than I've ever done in the past. I still have a long way to go, but I'll keep going for as long as it takes.

Now for the part I know you!

I started at 265, but lost the only pic I had of me at that weight when my laptop crashed.

When I started (for real and for the final time!) on MFP in August 2012, at 248:

Awesome. I'm like you, I move a lot..running, walking, boxing, etc... but food is my greatest weakness. We even have the same pattern. .drop by at Mcdonalds to eat cheeseburgers and fries.. then eat dinner at home like I've never eaten anything the whole day. You really inspire me, I'm more motivated than ever. Thank you thank you.
