    I have always been overweight.

    Since the time I was 3 or 4, at least. My parents weren't really aware of the impact of food and exercise on your overall health. They are still surprised when I tell them some things now. So, I know that they weren't aware, not just uncaring. However, about 4 years ago, I...

    Had to giggle last night.

    My hubby and I took a brisk walk and he was "done" before I was even close. He said "man I'm outta shape, I need to start working out with you". It will be nice to have a workout partner.

    I've been overweight

    for most of my life. I think I've finally come to the point where I'm so fed up with the way that I look that it's given me the motivation to start this journey. Two months ago I decided I was going to eat healthy and join a gym. I've lost 17.5 lbs. I can't see a difference...

    What In The HELL Is The Deal?

    Hello, this is somewhat of a sensitive topic

    for me. But I've been pretty sturdy my whole life and would like to lose weight. I want to do it the healthy non abrasive way. I'm not sure how to begin. Also, I work too many hours which stands in my way a bit. My problem is staying on track regardless if a schedule change...

    I'm so frustrated. Why do I keep eating bad

    and not working out when I am tired of the way that I look? I often cry about it and don't know what it is going to take to get me to get my life back on track.

    I have been overweight my entire life.

    I'm not obese, and most people think I'm just chubby or "thick." the truth is that I weigh more than I look because I'm proportionate and I have muscle underneath this fat. I'm not healthy at all right now. I lost 80lbs three years ago and gained it back after a year. I was...

    I've lost a total of 85pounds

    and I feel as ugly as ever. Skinny doesn't make a person beautiful or hot or sexy.. I should of fixed my mental issues and my problems internally, rather than trying to make myself look beautiful. I see no change but others do. it's strange.

    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...
