Hi everyone, I am new to weight loss, as previously I have not had a problem with it. I have always been a size six, short and petite. However, since moving to a small country town for my husbands work three months ago, I have put on 5 kilos, and it scares me how qickly and easy it went on. I have been lonely, and just been binge eating to the max. I am here to hopefully lose thos 5 Kilos before I go away to Darwin and need to wear a bikini again!
So thats me!

Welcome to the forum :D There's a few of us binge eaters here, so you will be in good company!

I wonder, is there any clubs or similar that you could join to maybe go out and socialise? It must be hard moving to a new town.... :(

Thankyou for the warm welcome!
I am here with my husband and we have started playing netball and volleyball, so we get out of the house a couple of nighs a week. I am getting heaps of exercise, I just think that I miss my family and friends and I am very stressed in my new work, and I am comfort eating.
Plus, I am such a sweet tooth. I try to stay away from it but I get to the point that I would eat jam just for the sweetness. :? Its awful. And then once I get the taste for it I cant stop myself, I devour everything I can get my hands on. I still don't feel satisfied afterwards.

Oh well, I will keep working and try to eat less and more healthy.

Hi sugaraddict,
I too am from a small town and new to the weight loss forum but not to the concept of weight loss. I hope we both do well.
