    I am 5'10 and 217 lbs I am at the point

    where I am absolutely disgusted with myself to the point where I don't even want to eat I just want to starve and exercise like a mad woman to lose weight. I know that's not healthy, I hate veggies with a passion any idea how to lose weight without starving myself?

    I'm 5'11 and 189lbs. I've gained four pounds

    and I seriously need to lose weight. People never thought I was fat in the first place and thought I look good the way I am. I used to be 237lbs before I got down to 185. My female cousin told me to please not lose anymore weight I don't care. In my parents countries (Mom...

    I am the heaviest I have ever been hitting the

    scale at 224. According to the BMI chart I think I'm supposed to be 130. I couldn't even imagine myself at 130 but I don't want to be 224. I should have taken the hint when my close stopped fitting. I have to admit my sweats and sweaters are quite comfy. It's not that I eat too...

    I am 23 at 149Lb I've been skinny my whole life,

    so... To see any belly, disgusts me. I wish I was dead. Everyday I walk 4-8 miles, but I don't seem to lose any weight. I'm down to 1 meal a day. What else can I do? Any suicidal ideas?

    I'm not really fat--waist is size 25--but ugh,

    all I eat goes straight into my belly. I just want it to be flat, damn it. My arms and legs are about as slim as you could get, but get to my middle and I look like I'm 2 months old pregnant. I've tried planking, green tea, and I'm always doing something, but the weight on my...

    Growing up, I was a little chubby.

    I hung out with the popular crowd of beautiful skinny girls and i was known as the "cool but chubby chick." I hated that! No one wants to be known as "that" girl. I am 5'2 and back then, 130 pounds was ALOT of weight. (i know , it's not that big).I became anorexic and lost...

    I'd like to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

    I've been acting like a couch potato for far too long! Would anyone like to be my exercise buddy? We can stay in touch and motivate each other! I'm planning to follow Kayla Itsines' suggested exercises, as well as Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred program.

    I'm finally getting back to it,

    my back problems have calmed down so now I'm just exercising until my backs gets tense. Unfortunately that means very little actual exercise, but hopefully this'll be building those back muscles up and... Who knows. Maybe I'll be able to run again next year.
