Start: 190 lb, Today: 140 lb - I am really agitated. I lost about 65 lbs, and then the holiday season shot me down. practically ever since november i have been eating awfully. i used to watch everything i ate, and kept it low on the carbs and calories but now i just binge i WAS 125 in Nov...but i checked today and now i have gained back a total of 15 lbs (140) i still exercise a lot and drink plenty of water...but i just can't control my eating.why do we have stupid cravings? i seriously wish i could shut off my brain sometimes. well if anyone has my problem or can help me figure out something lemme know. thanks.

Karyn I have exactly the same probably as you. I had worked so hard for the past 3-4 years going from 185lbs to 150. I was about 150 - 155 lbs and then 4 months ago I graduated high school and just ate and ate and ate! I dont know what posessed me but for some reason I just had cravings. I now weigh 185 lbs again. I can totally relate to how pissed off you feel! It was like all that work for nothing. To lose the weight before I calorie counted. Now I'm trying to get back into that but it is so hard. If you have any tips or want to share thoughts or ideas email me at
Also, what is your height? I am 5'9, sorta tall thats why my weight is a bit higher. Bye!
