Hello everyone,

My name is Jolean and I have glanced over this site and you all seem so encouraging and helpful. Its great to see and I just had to be a part of it. I have some weight to lose.. So here I am.

So I will share my story.

I have a 5 year old son and at the end of my pregnancy I went up to 103kg, pre pregnancy I was about 78kg. (I have never been a tiny person).. This frustrated me but I kept telling myself its only cause you just had a baby and it will go away… it didn’t….

One day I was at the pub with my friends and these guys were talking to us and I heard one guy say “No don’t leave me with the fat one.” I went to the bathroom and cried and snuck off home. But I thought he was right to say such a nasty thing.

I then became very upset with myself, blamed my partner for letting me eat.. all sorts of stupid things. To the point we ended up breaking up. Which was at the end of 2005.

I became very depressed and just stopped eating.. I would even punish myself if I did eat something. I would shout at myself in the mirror…I was sick! The only time I would ever eat was if I was out and I didn’t want people to know. Even then it would be tiny amounts and I would hide the food and always be the one to clear the table so I could get rid of evidence.

During this time, I got down to 62kg. I was always sick and never had any energy. But I felt great when I was out and I would hear a whistle from a car.. I’d never got that before… so I would just still not eat.

My friends eventually clicked on end of 2007 and pretty much made me eat they would buy me huge burgers and like stare at me still I ate the whole thing… their method a little to be desired… (hehe) but it got me out of the rut.

But then for some reason it was like I was trying to make up for lost time.. eating everything in my path.. hello 25kg.. in a year!!!

I only recently realised what I had done and stopped myself.. I tried to lose weight in a normal way but I struggled.. so I went to the doctors and asked for help.

He prescribed me duromine to stop me binge eating and I have to go back every fortnight as he is worried from my anorexia history.

I have been on it for 2 weeks and have lost 2 kilos. Making myself eat well.. which is what I hope to get out of these tablets. The motivation to eat well.. so far it is working.

I am 85kg at present and would like to get down to about 65 – 60kg.

My friends have hawk eyes on me at the moment knowing I am on a diet. As they are only concerned about me because of before. I do need the support from somewhere but its hard with my friends making sure I am eating to get it from them. They are trying though.. bless em

I just hope to get where I want to be the right way and do it alongside you guys. I need someone to do it with me and I want to help anyone else in any way I can.

Thanks for reading
(sorry it was long)

Jolean, so far it has taken me 16 months.

Lol Court, it's weird, on one hand I'm really proud of what I have done, on the other hand I'm not so proud I let things go that far.

Alisvolatpropriis, thank you :D .
