Hello, my name is NeeNee, and I need to lose about 90 pounds, it has been a very long roller coaster ride with me and weight. I am a teacher and I feel that sitting so much grading papers ect has not helped. At this point, I am just focusing on staying within the 1600 calorie requirement eating healthy and exercising 4-5 times a week. I will be very honest, the weight loss has been very slow and I have become a little frustrated. When you need to lose a large amount of weight it can really, really get you depressed and its so easy to give up and go to Dairy Queen. But, I will not do that again, I used to do it and at the end of the day I realized I just created more of a problem for myself. Now, I am trying to change my lifestyle, I want to talk to people in the same situation and learn how all of you are coping with the situation, I read somewhere that bonding with people in the same situation is a major help.
