    No Scales, But The Evidence Is Clear.

    I have gained rapidly over the fast few months. I haven't been able to weight myself but the evidence is clear. My jeans that used to be too loose now won't even get up my thighs. I've been in denial about my clothes. I haven't been to buy new jeans because I don't want people...

    Being raised in an Italian family does not help

    at all....I am however not using that as an excuse. But there really was no help in learning to eat reasonably. I have been overweight all my life. I hated school because of it. After 2 beautiful boys and being married 27 years, I have been as small as a 4 and as large as a 18...

    I Love Being Fat :d

    Honestly, being skinny is so overrated. You can’t enjoy the good things in life as much cause you’re too worried about what you put in your mouth and constantly reminding yourself “I have to go to the gym, I have to go to the gym..” How is that any fun? Plus, don’t men...

    I'm so disgusted by myself.

    17 and overweight. People said I don't look fat and that I'm just big sized. Are you kidding me? That is just another way of saying you're fat but don't feel bad. I'm obese for god's sake. But I'm still positive and in the process of losing some kgs.

    Overweight And Gaining Fast.

    After losing a lot of weight I quickly became bored and began gaining again. I think it is even more satisfying to gain weight the second time. Even though my belly is used to being stretched to its full potential I woke up this morning to discover some stretch marks on my...

    So, I weighed in at 293 today.

    I started to lose a little bit of weight, but I kinda ate myself back to almost 300. I get so embarrassed how out of breath I get when I take the stairs. Also, since my blood pressure is so high, my health instructor this semester has asked me to stay after class to make sure my...

    At 15, I'm overweight.

    I've been overweight from a very young age. Generally, it's something that people figure you "chose", and I didd I suppose. But when you're a little kid with parents that couldn't care less, you don't realize what health effects unhealthy eating is going to lead to in the future...
