Hi I am obviously a new member! I joined this site because I want to recieve support from others who are also dieting and so I can stay motivated. I used to weigh 100 pounds at 5'1" but now I am preety sure I weigh anywhere from 15 to 20 pounds more. I haven't weighed myself in awhile and I don't want to because I know I will be very dissapointed in what the scale reads. I would like to weigh anywhere from 95-100 pounds. I think my weight gain has to do with most of the stress from my first year in college. I used to run competitively in college but after having bad experiences, I decided to withdraw from my school and move back home. I do not run the 70 miles a week I used to run but I am getting back into it and will hit 35 miles this week. I do not have a problem exercising but I do have a problem with my eating habits. I usually eat healthy but it is the amount that I eat that is unhealthy. This is why I would like to start a juice diet tomorrow. I am not sure how long I will do this diet for. Maybe 30 days? It depends on how my jeans/shorts fit and how I look in the mirror. I have tried several diets before but it seems that whenever I put food in my mouth, I crave more of it and I do not know when enough food is enough. This whole dieting thing is all new to me because I have never had to diet to lose weight before in my entire life. I just want support so I can stick with it and advice from anyone that is willing to give any!!
