Started my dieting journey at age 13 by going on a long-term "crash diet" and becoming anorexic (though, at least where I lived, the condition was unknown and unnamed in 1970-71). I've often wondered if that destroyed my metabolism early on, because the rest of my life had been a series of diets, losing weight, and gaining weight. I've lost 50 pounds numerous times and 100 pounds twice already. So really hoping I can make this "stick". Last chance at this age!
Biggest sadness for me is the fun of eating out safely, and cooking for others but eating something else.
