    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...

    I'm ready. I'm ready to love myself again

    and to treat my body how it deserves to be treated. An agonizing decade of constant weight gain. The stress I've put on my body is inexcusable. Many things contribute to it... depression, stress, career, shift work.. but I have to change my attitude about my life. If I want...

    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...

    I don't think it's about losing weight now,

    I think it's about turning the weight I have on me into muscle. Like, for example, look at Brock Lesnar - you wouldn't ever say he's fat but he's not thin is he? It's like pure muscle around his waist. Legend. Also want to build my arms but that's an easier, different issue, for...

    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.

    Update on my weight loss: I've

    now lost 54lbs. I feel better than I ever have. I look better and better every day. Being healthy has become an addiction. I just wish I had someone to workout with.

    I've lost 9 pounds so far on my diet,

    I've been using a calorie counting app. I was trying to exsersise but then I realised that I hate it so much that I'm not even going to learn to spell it. I'll just lose weight by living on coffee and chocolate frosting ^^;

    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 cut soda and replaced my breakfast with a

    protine shake. So far that's all I can handle. I have joined a gym and intend to start going this week. I'm down 10lbs just cutting soda.

    17.5 lbs down since January 9th!

    I went from 275.4 to 257.9. I'm obsessed with my numbers (my weight, my steps, and I track all my work outs). I'm not counting calories. I'm just being more heath conscious and not giving into "boredom eating". I feel AMAZING. I'm glad I got the motivation to do this while I'm...

    Day 48 I want to get back to my old weight,

    it's funny because when I was at that weight and 50 pounds lighter I used to think "I need to be slimmer". I guess it first comes down to being comfortable with yourself no matter what your weight.

    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.
