    Working On Weight Loss

    Alright so this is very personal for me and embarrassing to say the least. I'm a 20 year old male and have a weight issue. I'm well aware I am not alone in this area, but I am ashamed that my weight has gotten so out of hand. In July, after I met a guy, I decided that I wanted...

    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?

    I used to weigh nearly 300 pounds,

    that is until I decided to better myself. It took some time, but I dropped down to 170. However, lately I've found myself putting on some more weight due to lack of time for exercise. I work at a computer, so I am constantly sitting. That doesn't help. I'd pry be a little...

    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.
