I Am Trying to Lose Weight

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 21,586 People

    Guess it might be a stupid question.

    But how do you lose weight off your hips and stomach without gaining abs or six packs?? I really don't want a six pack or any of that muscly stuff shown in exercise videos or on television. (Picture attached as an example) I just want to lose a lot of weight and get a flat...

    Fail at "seven" app. Couldn't do all the tasks.

    Only got up to 7/12 and those 7 tasks I only did seconds of. Improvised with my own exercises. It just hurts too much!!!! At least I have a sweat now. I was going to try a bit more but it's been raining and wet outside and I saw a large spider so I was put off a little

    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.

    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 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...

    So I looked at myself naked.

    I've now gained some weird fat shapes under my breasts I didn't have before. I highly doubt it's abs forming but fat. My hips are fatter compared to last Friday. Maybe I need to stop exercising and just hardly eat anything at all. Maybe exercise is making me gain weight or not...

    since February. I know it's probably not much, but it's a start and enough to keep me going until I reach my goal. Literally the scale made my day lol

    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...

    Depressed. Tried to get our scales to work.

    They are old and I think the wires are broken. It only works for a few seconds and stops. It was doing crazy things. Suddenly it went to stones by my messing around with it and it said 14.9 stone then broke. That would make me about 94-95kg. I was 95kg two years ago when I was...

    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...

    What In The HELL Is The Deal?
