    No, I do not want to lose weight - I am going

    to lose weight. I am so sick of feeling awful about my body. This is ruining my life and tonight my new life style begins. Screw pizza, fries, and all that tasty crap. I am stronger than my cravings.

    Losing weight is very difficult.

    Maintaining it is even harder. I have a very small torso so it's easy for me to get fat. I have a muscular frame so I don't look bad but I want to lose at least 10 pounds. Eat healthy freaking sucks

    I want to lose 120 lbs.

    My problem is I'm an emotional and binge eater. I use food as a comfort blanket like Linus from Charlie Brown. Foods is my seems like my best friend but it's my worst enemy.

    So here is my before

    and "during" pictures. Like I've posted before I'm working very hard to lose weight and tone my body. Eating right & exercising is key! The 2nd picture was taken about 2 weeks ago so I'm excited to take an even more updated one and see how I've progressed since then.

    I'd like to lose 15 pounds.

    Everyone around me tells me I don't need to, but it's not just about generic skinniness. I'd love to be in shape and healthy again. I eat smaller portions now and run two miles a day, just gotta stay patient. :)

    I've been a gymnast for 7 years

    and as a result I have really big thighs. It's not fat, it's all muscle, but it still makes me look really big and I'm 3 sizes bigger than all the other girls in my grade. I always see all these really skinny girls at my gym and they always call me "thunder thighs" and I really...

    What Is Going On!

    My thighs were stolen from me during the night a few years ago. I went to sleep and woke up with someone else's thighs. It was just that quick.  The replacements had the texture of cooked oatmeal.  Whose thighs were these and what happened to mine? I spent...

    Hey Guys. In 2010, I weighed about 330 lbs

    (150 kg) I was fat and sick and depressed- I had a horrible body image. I started getting fat at about age 16. I was eating loads of fried and fatty foods and I stopped playing sports. I was on the fast track to Diabetes and other health related illnesses. I spent my 20's both...

    Since my health scare my diet has changed.

    I only use artificial sugar in drinks. The drinks I drink are water, milky tea and hot chocolate. We are trying to only drink light milk too. (That's me and mum) she prepares and cooks everything so what I eat, she eats. So I'm concerned if she ditches the diet I'll be forced...

    I think I've got my appetite some what under

    control. I only eat 3 times a day. It's just a matter of deciding what I should eat. I did go to McDonald's this morning, but that was because I over slept and there are 3 McDonald's on the way to school. Haha. I'm gonna be home alone tonight, so I'll probably pick something up...

    I was so proud of myself today.

    I have lost 35 pounds and today was the first time I actually felt good looking in the mirror. Then the person who I considered my best friend looked at me and said "well you still weigh way too much for someone your height" and there went my happiness :(

    I have actually lost weight 30lbs the thing is

    I don't feel like I have. I feel very fat still. People tell me I've lost a lot of weight and that it's very noticeable but I think my double chin and my big stomach are proof I haven't really lost much.

    Feeling really motivated today!

    After a horrible weekend of eating non-stop, I'm finally recovering from it. Two more pounds and I'll be where I was before the weekend! I'm determined not to mess it up this time!

    I know you'll think this is silly,

    but oh my god! I can feel my hip bones! I mean, they aren't sticking out or anything like that, but I can't remember the last time I could! It's definitely the little things, isn't it? I'm slowly getting there!

    My mum gave me a fruit salad today

    and I already had a roll. She meant well but it was extra calories I didn't want. Felt bad so I ate it all. It was a massive serving too. I exercised for a few minutes of the work out app I have. I can barely do any of the tasks and if I can it only lasts a few seconds. I can...
