My weight is starting to scare me

I have been overweight all of my life. But now that I'm nearing 40, I am starting to gain even more weight very quickly and it's starting to scare me for health reasons. I'm the heaviest I've ever been right now. Controlling my eating has always been one of my great failures. I have a lot of self discipline in other areas of my life--good job, do well academically, have good relationships--and I was even able to quit smoking on my own (5 years smoke free now). But I am helpless with eating and my weight. I started working out with a personal trainer in October, and his encouragement is what keeps me going back. I need someone like that for my eating--someone to teach me how to eat healthfully and be a cheerleader. I realize that I can't do this on my own, and I need to do something before I do more serious, irreversible damage to my body. Where do I go to find someone who can design a diet, help teach me to eat healthy, and encourage me? The only nutritionist I tried (though my health plan) wasn't good at all, and I'm willing to hire someone...I just don't know where to start.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
