    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...

    Halle-freaking-lujah,

    the scale moved! After a successful last year, my weight seemed to have hit a dead end. I have been hovering between 153-154 for the longest time now. And while I realize that weight can fluctuate on a daily basis, and that the scale is not the only measure of progress, the...

    I've suffered depression

    and anxiety for the past decade. Eating food was how I'd cope with my feelings which resulted in a ton of weight gain. Over the years I've grown to hate my body and it only became worse when I started college. Moreover I was diagnosed with insulin resistance 2 yrs ago which...

    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...

    Hello there. So I thought I might ask

    for advice in here since all of you had or still have the same problem. I use to do a lot of sports 'till 8 years ago. I was playing basketball since i was 7. I had practices every day and even though I was never skinny I wasn't overweight either. At the age of 15 my life...

    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...

    For cheerleading, if you want a certain

    position (flyer, is what I want.) you have to be under 5'5 and 100 LBS. you have to be exactly 100, or under. As of now, I'm 106, so... I've always had a problem with under eating and over exercising. Ever since I've recovered from anorexia, anytime I eat healthy, I always...

    I weighed myself today

    and the scale announced that I had lost 8lbs but I don't feel any lighter or like my clothes fit better. I had sworn off weighing myself because I tend to find the ordeal plays mind games with me and I'm likely to get discouraged. I can only take solace in the fact that I have...
