    I want to lose weight

    but I can't, I just can't. I don't know what's healthy and non healthy, I can't follow diets because they're too complicated and technical for me. I can't exercise because I don't have very good stamina seeing as I'm fat. My throat starts to burn and my feet start hurting and I...

    Starting another diet today I guess.

    The biggest thing will be tracking. And exercising. There just isnt enough time in the day.

    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 :(

    For once I feel positive about my prospects,

    because yesterday I had my first appointment for "weight clinic". I guess my psychiatrist thought my weight had something to do with my depression. Presumptuous, but she didn't lie, so I was referred to them. My Dr. was nice if not a bit "chatty". So we discussed things relevant...

    So I worked a very physical job

    for 4 yrs. this kept my weight very stable. Sadfully it also took a toll on my body. I left that job almost 3 yrs ago. In the first 6 months after I left I put on 60lbs. I had realized I put on a few, but not this much. Right now I weigh 230 lbs. I'd like to get back to my high...

    I'm obese. Have been

    Phase I Background: When I started I was 208

    lbs (I'm 6 foot 3 inches tall). Doesn't seem bad, unless one considers a decade or so back I was 175 pounds and the weight gain was obviously fat that went to all the wrong places (evidenced by a waist size increase from 34 to 38); I was unhappy about my shape (and being a...

    I went from a size 24 to a size 8 in 3 years.

    Lots and lots of exercise and slowly my eating habits began to change. I was definitely an emotional eater. I finally faced what my real issues were which I why I was able to make such a dramatic change. I've just accepted a lot of things about my life, and it is by doing that...

    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...

    and now I'm a bona-fide self-loathing anorexic.

    Thanks to society's overbearing pressure to look good, and a lifelong lack of physical compliments, I've dropped nearly 145lbs. Maybe I'm just looking for a connection. Maybe, I'm just tired of living my life alone. Maybe I'm tired of hating myself, my looks, and, my past. Do...

    I'm seriously determined to lose weight.

    I'm 140kg. Perhaps one thing I'm doing wrong is not setting goals. Is 5kg in two weeks a good goal?
