Just thought I'd introduce myself.
I'm 25 from Australia and for the past 2 years I have been losing weight. I lost a total of 45kg, and then went in to have a tummy tuck done to fix all the excess skin problems.
Along the way I had a lot (and gave a lot) of support in an online group, however things happen, personalities clash and thanks to a very insensitive person involved in the group, the group has died and the support is now non-existant. I believe that having those people involved in my life and becoming friends with them, helped me achieve a lot of my weight loss goals. So I am searching for a new place that can offer me support, but also allow me to help others as well
Bascially my life has gone to hell and back recently, my family has been crippled financially and emotionally and my weight has been the thing to suffer most. I have put back on roughly 13kg and I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself. I have been trying to get back on track, but the old yo-yo thing is happening, the binge eating is out of control and I feel like I'm back at square one, minus the motivation and willpower. None of my new clothes fit me, I got rid of all my 'fat' clothes because I knew I would never be there again, but here I am, and at the moment I'm slouching around in baggy pants and shirts and starting to hide away again. Which is the worst possible thing because then it really will just take off and I'll be left 45kg heavier again.
I really just need help. I know what to do to lose the weight safely, it's all right there in front of me, I know how to lose it, I just need the support and people to kick me up the bum, yell at me when I disappear, and be there so that I can help them out too because I get a lot of motivation from seeing other people succeed and if I can be a part in helping that work out then it's a good thing.
Anyway, this is a very long introduction.
I'll go and have a look around at the site and hopefully can find a place to fit in somewhere.
