    How can I lose weight without the support of my family? My parents are the main cause of me being over weight. Yes, I like to eat cake and stuff… but they are the ones who provided it! My mom always teases me about my weight, but never helps. She is always like, "We need to...

    I Never Thought I'd Battle The Bulge, I Am A Skinny Woman Stuck In A Big Body

    I haven't always had weight issues. As a youngster and far into my 20's I was considered above average looking with a models body. I could eat and eat and eat and NEVER gain a pound. After my children I found I would gain, but was able to lose quickly just in short periods...

    Do you really need to loose weight?

    Your problem may be your mind and not your body. I remember always feeling “fat” in high school. I hated my body so much that I ran cross country and track (3 yrs.) just to try and be “thin” however I never felt thin. I remember my parents, friends and boyfriend at...

    Why is everyone obsessed with not being happy

    with their weight? I'm very fat but am not at all dissatisfied with how I look. I like the way I look. I'm cute. I do need to lose some weight but not because I hate how I look but because being healthy is a good idea for everyone. I am totally not judgmental of overweight...

    Garfield Says, "I'm Not Overweight, Just Under Tall."

    My weight gain problem started after the birth of my first child, 11 years ago.  After Michael was born in 1996 I went back into my size 7 jeans.  I then followed my doctor's advice and went on the depo-provera shot.  I have not been the same since.  In as...

    If I don't lose weight then I won't be accepted

    in this world. I won't be considered beautiful or pretty until I'm super skinny enough. No one would really talk to me or want to be my friend because of the way I look. I would be judged all the time. I just know I have to look a certain way to be accepted in this world :(

    I'll need to change my lifestyle.

    I also need to change my diet. I need to consider what has sugar. I'm diabetic and need to lower my blood sugar. So I am going to have to consider my fitness and lose weight. One thing I need to start doing is doing a workout.
