    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...

    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...

    Program That Helped Me Was Thin Within

    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.
