    From the few experiences

    that I have read...most are young. Believe me, you still have time. People used to tell me to lose the weight before I turned 40 because it was harder to lose after that...I had PLENTY of time so I told myself. Not so much. Now I'm 45. I have to practically not eat anything...

    No, I am tired of people telling me I'm fat.

    How I should lose weight. I am tired of people trying to lecture me, trying to project their own insecurities of themselves unto me. I am tired because no one has any right to judge my life and who I am. I am tired because my main goal is to be HEALTHY. To eat right, to...

    We are given just one body

    and for most humans it take maybe 10 to 20 years to spoil it. With food, lack of exercise. Then when you are 30+ you start regretting of what you've done. It's hard but maybe can get it in shape. When you are 40+ you regret and most of the time it's too late to get it back. I...

    I am 14 years old, 5'10

    and 240 ******* lbs. i truly don't understand why my life HAD to turn this way. If I had a dollar for as many times as I tried to lose weight in my freaking life, I'd be able to afford Laipo suction.

    Staying the course of cardio.

    Started weights yesterday. My arms are not pleased. However, I'm feeling so good about my commitment to this that I'm ready to take "before" pictures on Monday. Not sure how often I should follow up with that but I'd like to see if there is a visible change.

    I've been fat since childhood.

    It wasn't so much that I ate a lot. It was more that I had a lower metabolism than most kids my age. The older I got, the more I was bullied, until I started eating to make myself feel better, but it only made me bigger, which caused more bullying, and I continued to eat to feel...
