    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...

    I was doing really well

    for awhile and then issues with my shoulder arose and I stopped being so active because of the pain. I plateaued. Now on the mend and only slight pain, I've happily been more active. After not stepping on the scale for awhile (a little depression and avoidance, I didn't want to...

    I am almost 23 and I really need social support.

    I am severely overweight and I really want to change that. I am the biggest person in my family and I feel like they judge me because of that. I couldn't even tell you how much I weight because I don't even know. I feel like I'm close to 400 lbs. I am hoping I can get some tips...

    I'm still losing weight with my shakes.

    The cleanse that you go through is awesome. I just feel like I'm getting a bunch of "blah" out of my system. The only exercise I'm doing is walking my dog.

    I was that fat kid back in 12th grade.

    And then my brother's marriage was fixed 3 months later. People looked at me and said, "Nope! Not going to happen! or " You're not that good at it!". Well to hell with that, I got my lazy *** off and stopped using the lift to my flat (15th floor) I got home climbing those stairs...

    If anyone is looking

    for a weight loss program that works, I've found one. It's shakes and protein bars but they are actually really good. You are responsible for 1 healthy meal per day ( about 600-700 calories). This stuff is making me leaner and stronger with out exercise. I love it.
