    I don't understand why I'm overweight.

    I eat normally, I exercise normally. It's hard not to get depressed when all my friends are gorgeous and skinny.

    I Lack Motivation

    You would think the motivation of feeling active and alive again would be enough, but stress overcomes all! Yes, I am certainly an emotional eater. Now, I know some people who think I'm an imposter because I'm 5'5 and 155 pounds. They say that I'm not that bad. And I'm not. I...

    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...

    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...

    but no one can ever be the perfect weight. Being all muscly or super thin is over rated. Being you and feeling good about yourself is all that matters. For example. Me. I am a chubby/fat filipino that gets called fat or chubby everyday. Sometimes it's from friends, random...

    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...
