I Am Trying to Lose Weight

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26,476 People

    My doctor kept assuring me I was on the right

    track, doing the right things, and I had "nothing to worry about" because of a fasting glucose test. Well, he was wrong - this last year has been rough on me, with signs of metabolic syndrome increasing to diabetic levels despite following his paint-by-numbers insurance-oriented...

    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 have been suffering with Depression

    throughout my whole high school experience, and I can't help but think some of that breeds from my weight. All of my friends are size zeros and skinny, and well, I am not. I have been trying to lose weight, but I have been doing so in an unhealthy manner, like not eating much. I...

    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...

    Why is it when I lose weight it doesn't go from

    my middle but off my breasts first. Breasts go down one size and waist doesn't change! It is so frustrating!

    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 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...

    About two years ago I managed to lose 20 kilos

    in the space of 3 months, which was the best progress in weight loss I've ever had. Sadly, since then, I put that weight back on plus about 15kg more. Two weeks ago I started up my weight loss journey once again. I'm not really worrying about the scales too much, just focusing...

    I am very excited today.

    In November of 2013 I weighed 335lbs. As of October of 2014 I now weigh 213lbs. So in less than a year I have lost 122lbs. Its been a lot of hard work but I'm so happy to see these changes and I'm starting to gain my confidence back.
