Hi everyone! This Friday I will be coming up on my first week of my weight loss goal and I have dropped about 1.5 lbs. Its small, but I am proud that I'm committing myself to lose weight in a healthy way. I am a college student and its difficult to walk into the food court or cafeteria and not envy everyone eating heavy pastas and cheeseburgers, but I know that I'm in a crucial point in my life where I need to get my weight under control and break bad habits while I'm young. I never realized how much I eat. I love to eat when I'm stressed and tell myself that I need the energy in order to stay up and finish my work, but really, I just need some comfort and distraction. I also am a big fan of eating in private. I never eat in front of my friends (specifically my guy friends) because I feel self conscious.Once I get back into my room, however, I start to eat a little bit of everything I see. I filled my fridge with healthy snacks like yogurt and fruit, but still, too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing without portion control. I don't know how to remedy these issues, but I need help quick because I am afraid that I'll sabotage myself!View Thread
