I Want to Lose Weight

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 54,095 People

    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've lost 6 pounds this week

    but I feel like it's not enough. I hate that I do this to myself, but I am such a all or nothing person. I am either addicted to the gym and counting calories or the complete opposite sitting on the couch binging. I know it doesn't happen over night but I'm worried if I don't...

    as a typical active kid. In with grade I played football and I knew I was going to play football in ninth grade(first year of high school) so I started getting into shape. I lost over 20 pounds. I went underweight. I was at about 95 pounds now. My doctor told me to eat more so I...

    Time to buckle down and buckle down hard!

    I gained a few lbs, part of it could be fluid. You know how that goes for us ladies once a month. Nevertheless I have cheated for the past 4days. Which could be the munchies from that thing coming on. I've been between 1500-2500 calories for the past 4days. Which is HORRIBLE...

    and today I stood up for the first time in quite awhile!! I'm around 700 pounds, and I'm trying to lose. Only 500 more pounds to go.. I still can't really walk, but I got out!!! This body will hopefully not be my prison for much longer. If anyone needs motivation to lose weight...

    With admittance, I haven't put any real effort

    into losing weight aside from substituting meals with vitamins, and the occasional 30-50 push-ups/sit-ups about once a day. The uphill walk to work changed my perception of that and showed me how out of shape I still am, and even though I've come a long way, I still have a ways...

    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 :(
