Ht. 5'5", Start: 170 lb, Today: 173 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 125 lb - I feel like I just cannot win. I have worked out for a constant 6 days doing the Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred and doing 3 miles in 30 minutes on the elliptical. I just don't understand. I'm just such a comfort eater and the more I don't lose weight, the more I eat and I feel hopeless. I cannot remember when I wasn't fighting being over weight.... ever. I just want to be thin and healthy and the only person in my family without type 2 diabetes. But I feel like I sabotage myself:/

I am sorry to hear that you overeat, I found a tip that works, for me when I am about to eat for comfort, I ask myself do I need more food? I say to myslef I just ate, my stomach dose not need more food my brain is lying to me, Eve it is a tough changlle to lose wight being a comfort eater, I believe you can do it. Eve, dont give up, keep excriseing, stay out of the kitchen and go outside for a walk, or running, or do a jog, I catch myself trying to eat when I dont need to, write in Diary to write your feelings, try riding your, bike, drink water when you are going to binge, it has 0 calories, I usually do writeing songs, porty.. Walk the dog or walk your friend;s dog or the neigbors's dog ask your partens permisson first.. I brush my teeth, it has worked for me, not to eat anymore food..
Jump rope, jumping jacks, strechs, treadmill, excrsing bike miachne. swimming, hiking, dont eat when you dont need to, only eat when you are truelly hungery.. I lost weight by only what my stomach needs not what it wants..
I had the same issues sevral mounths a go..
Eve dont be discourged and dont give up reaching your goal,
I hope to have helped,
