    I hate that I can feel

    so depressed because of how I feel about my weight Like some part of me is like "no you're not allowed to be happy because you're not good enough" and then I look back on times where I was happy and I'm disgusted at myself

    Constantly At War With the Weight Scale That Is Chained to My Ankle

    Everything started back in elementary school, around the fourth and fifth grades. I started gaining an excessive amount of weight and continued well throughout my life, even now. My mother loved me dearly, even to this day, but in her own ways that i have only just begun to...

    Body Image Versus Everything Else

    Even when people say that, "you should be you" and "don't worry about what others think," it's impossible to ignore external standards of beauty. It's ironically weighted heavily too -- physical beauty will give you greater benefit and will be worth more than any other factor of...

    I used to fight my weight

    as i did my sexuality. I am now at peace with both. So I am writing this for you. A few months ago, I accepted my sexuality and this allowed for me to truly notice what I found attractive in women, and as I am a woman, I became content with my appearance shortly afterwards...

    Ugh......i Hate My Weight

    It's not even a joke, being overweight sucks (Well, for me at least)! I don't know how it all happened. One minute I was this slender athletic babe eating any and every kind of food I could get my hands on and not worrying about all the calories or where all the fat would be...

    I wasn't fat. I was sort of chubby. But I know I was fatter than before. I gained 10 pounds after first year at my university. People noticed that. Close friends teased me and called me fat. Family was shocked to see me when I went back to my home country. They also thought I was...

    It's gotten to the point

    where it's an obsession. I feel helpless because I can't control my eating. I feel helpless because I can't make myself purge. I feel helpless because I keep gaining weight. I feel disgusting, like no man is going to want me once I take my shirt off. I feel like everyone can see...

    I hurt my leg back in May

    and a downward spiral started from there. Because I couldn't move much and was eating more than I should have been from the stress of a kneecap dislocation (OUCH) I gained weight. Going from 140 to 145 may not seem like a big deal, but when it packs on your stomach and thighs...

    I weight 180, I am out of shape,

    but I have been trying. I know you don't see results in 3 freaking days but I don't feel anything. I love food and I gain weight fast, it's just a horrible combination! If I got to 160 or 165 I'd be OK. Lord just give me the strength I need.

    I have come to the conclusion

    if I eat all time, how do I know when I'm truly hungry? It has taken a week for me to slow down on the eating and realize when I'm hungry and when to stop eating. Since I've been doing that, I've lost 5lbs in 2 days. I haven't been going to the gym, I've just done my normal...
