Food - the devil and the plan

Weight has been an ongoing battle for me ever since I can remember. I remember being over 200lbs in 6th grade. Yep, you read that right. Then in 8th grade I dropped down to 130ish.

Food is the devil.

Food is my comfort.

I eat when I'm happy, I eat when I'm sad. I don't work out or exercise... yet.

Food is my best friend.

Food is my enemy.

I've definitely got a love-hate relationship with it.

Now here I am, 19 months post partum and I've gained 40lbs. They need to go. I picked up Alli to help me out and to teach me what I can and cannot eat. I've started keeping a food journal.


  1. Wow! I would have never imagined you at 200. I have the same problem with food. I have that love/hate relationship with it too! How do you like that Alli? Do you see any difference with it?

  2. I see the difference in the toilet! LOL.
    I plan on weighing myself today. Gulp.

  3. lol let me know how that goes if you don't mind!

  4. I didn't weigh in yet. I decided to wait until I've been using Alli for a week.

  5. I know how you feel. Ive been heavy my whole life. I dont remember being under 200 ever. Ive had a decent relationship w/food. Im just tired of not liking what ive seen in a very long time. I hate weighing myself - I dont like to be disapointed. I just judge if my pants are loose or not.
