    No Self Control.

    I've always had a 'pretty face' I dress nice, I do my make up and hair. None of that matters though because Im fat. I feel disgusting, I tell my friends what I would wear if I wasn't fat, and they end up wearing it and looking great. I start to hate myself for not having enough...

    Confusion And Acceptance

    I was one of the many people who had a hard time before, during and after puberty. Let's disregard the sudden growth spurt, but in elementary, I just woke up in the middle of the night just to discover blood on my underwear. Yes. My first period was a very sketchy time for me. I...

    I wake up hating how I look. I go to sleep thinking tomorrow I will try again. I've dealt with this ever since I was a child and am tired of being fat. I dress well, carry myself well and people don't realize how I hate my body. Every morning is a battle trying to get dressed...

    I'm like a walking jiggle factory,

    I try walking, exercising and watching my diet but I can't tell if it's working. Most people measure the waist line or step on a scale but I can't so I don't know what's going on.

    I'm Such a Greedy ************!

    Well, not so much anymore. I don't eat a lot anymore, but I used to. I'm very sedentary because of my depression. The antidepressants made me overeat & gain weight. Otherwise, I'd be exercising. I'm @ least trying to improve my diet. I drink more water.

    So, being overweight really didn't begin until my mid 20's. Up to that point I always had a nice shape and at a healthy weight. As the years piled on so did the weight. After 15 years of marriage and two kids, I was the biggest I had ever been at 249lbs. CRAZY!!! I finally...

    I'm 167cm and 80kg. At the height of my bulimia, I was 48kg. I want to get back to about 55kg. I'm on Duromine because I have ruined my metabolism from my eating disorder. Does anyone have any ideas on how to overcome an addiction to food?

    It's unfortunate, mostly because I had a healthy life style. Ate a little more, yes, but always healthy stuff! In school I was/am bullied over my weight. I feel uncomfortable in my own skin and I wonder why anyone wants to be near me. I'm just so disgusting. I often cut myself...

    Fat Is Uncomfortable

    I hate how the fat just lies in big rolls and it gets in the way.  It is so uncomfortable!!  I have always been fat except for a few brief times when I lost weight for a little while.  I wish I could just accept it but I can't seem to do so.
