    so I thought I might make a little diary

    so you get an idea of what I'm eating and what I'm training. At 6:30am I woke up and went down to have my breakfast so I wouldn't forget to. I had porridge with a bit of jam because I hate having anything else in it. I had a coffee with no sugar. Since I am so crap at planning...

    I know I need to lose weight,

    and I know what I need to do to accomplish that eat less exercise more. Sounds Easy. It's not. I am a emotional eater, a boredom eater, a food lover. When I look at pictures of myself I cringe and think is that what I really look like? It is so depressing and that makes me eat...

    just weighed myself for the first time in months

    and I gained almost 5 pounds. I'm now 175 (I'm 4'9) I haven't been eating very well lately, so that's probably why. I'm not trying to make excuses here, but I think its my anxiety that's been making me eat more. I try to eat healthy but always end up eating sweet and salty foods...

    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...

    I've put on a fair amount of muscle weight.

    mainly on my calves, back of my thighs and flutes. A little on the arms.

    The first time I lost weight was from being

    severely sick. Then I gained it all back. At the beginning of last year, I made a resolution to lose it again, and I dove into it! I was loving it for a few months, then fell off and ended up gaining most of the weight back. I've been saying I need to lose it ever since, but...

    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.

    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 like working out, but at times I lose the

    drive. When that happens I go to the scale and watch a few episodes of "My 600-pound life" to remind myself to keep going. Then I get inspired to work out again. I may even take up a sport like biking, running, free runing, swimming, kickboxing, ect... I just can't afford to go...

    not really kept to a routine.

    The scales compared to appearance is different. Tyringham to ignore the scams and listen to people's compliments. my calves are extremely muscly from biking and I can lift a 10kg weight which is cool.

    The thing I realised.

    .. I lose weight when I am happy and contented. I put on when I am depressed or dissatisfied. It is not because I do comfort eating... on the contrary, I start skipping meals or eating absurdly less when I am depressed. Still, I bloat. So, the first key to fitness is to be...
