Group details

Group Name: Cheaters - NO MORE!
Members: 4
Location: anywhere, TX anywhere

Goals: To deal with binges and make it a thing of the past in our lives.

Profile: The is a team for people who have a problem with binges or seriously cheating on their "diets." We are not talking about having a treat once in a while. Anyone should have the OCCASIONAL treat. This is a place where you will find support. You should log not only your regular food and your cheats/binges , but also you should log why you think you cheated/binged and how you were feeling when you cheated/binged. Logging helps us to get real with ourselves and overcome our hurdles. So, even if you want to keep your notes and comments private, still log them in the personal notes section. It really does help to get it out. It also helps to have a record to reflect on to guide change for the better. This is also a place where cheaters/bingers hopefully will acquire a more healthy lifestyle. We hope to exchange the word 'diet' for 'lifestyle' as we implement healthy habits. This is not a place for judgement. It is a place for encouragement and support. We will read each others' logs and offer positive support to each other and vent, if we need to. We are all here for the same reason. Don't worry about judgement. This is a team where we will give and receive compassion.

Members profiles:
39, English Teacher, Married, No Pets, No Kids, Also, I've always struggled with a weight problem (practically since birth, and that's NOT an exaggeration)

I'm 51 years old, mother of 3 girls (19, 21, and 24), recently remarried to a wonderful musician. All three of my girls are out of the house and in school. I'm a huge pet lover and left my former job in real estate sales to become a pet sitter a year ago, which I love! I have a good sence of humor, like all things friendly, and am a generally happy person who struggles with seasonal depression in the gray days of winter. I like exercise overall, but sometimes put other things in front of it to avoid it. Once I'm doing it, I'm happy for having made the effort. My biggest problem is that I love to eat and drink and tend to be a feast or famine person - I either totally abstain or eat the whole container of ice cream so it won't be there to tempt me tomorrow. Sound familar? I'm going through menapause and find it's much harder to shed the 15 lbs. I've put on the last 5 years, but I really would like to get down a size or two. I feel much happier about myself when I'm leaner, and find I have alot more energy. I joined this group to get the support and feedback from others who share these struggles.

I'm 24, finished an Honours degree in violin
