I love food. I have struggled with my weight all of my life. I reached my highest weight in April of 2002: 321.2. I joined a weight watchers and lost 100 lbs by April of 2003. By April of 2004 I lost another 25. I was feeling great and for once did not feel like a fat person. Gradually through life stresses I was back up to up to 283 by September 2008. Through tracking calories online, attending WW meetings and an at work support group I got down to 243 in 2009. Then of course I once again gained weight. Even with tracking my calories on 2 sites I gained about 30 lbs. Tracking became the end rather than the means and I grew comfortable with entering 3000 KCals + on some days. As of last week I am tracking only on the spark people site and am trying to keep my calories under 2000.
