Hello everyone. I have been a long time lurker and finally decided to jump in. I am 35 yrs old, weigh 255 lbs currently (down from 267 since Jan 1st, woohoo!) and have been trying hard to cut out diary, gluten and all carbs for a while now.
My problem is that I think I am addicted to sugar. Over the past month, I have slipped literally every weekend and have binged on sweets/carbs. This weekend is good so far and I am hoping to ride out till the end of the day (US MT) without any mishaps (fingers crossed )
I would love to team up with others who have 100-ish lbs to lose, for accountability and support. I am 5’7" and 145-150 lb is my goal, but after suffering from chronic fatigue, binge eating disorder and food addiction for 3 yrs now I know better than to focus on the number on the scale. I basically weighed between 170-180 till my 32nd birthday, and then the thyroid hit me like a tonne of bricks and I didn’t get diagnosed till about 6 months ago. I literally ballooned up to 280 lbs and blamed myself for being “lazy” when I was basically chronically fatigued.
I have yet to start on thyroid meds for Hashimoto’s because my insurance won’t cover it (long story), and I need to wait till June. During this time I want to do everything healthy so I can start meds when I fully fat-adapted and comfortable on a keto diet. Thanks for reading this far and I hope to get to know a lot of you amazing folks on here!
