    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 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...

    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...

    Day 10 of my weight loss journey my goal is to

    drop 20 pounds by May. My cheat day is Saturday. I wish I had a fast metabolism so I can just live my life, I'm only 13. I wish I didn't have to worry about my weight.

    When I started my "weight loss journey" my

    motivation was: Either gain 10 lbs a year, or lose 10 lbs a year. It's been less than 2 months and I've lost 16 lbs. just from working out and being a tad more health conscious when I eat. And I'm not losing a single ounce of motivation. If anything, I'm more motivated now...

    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.

    It is something that needs done.

    It will be hard, I will want to give up, it will take a long time. I will do this. On a side note, If anyone is looking for a weight buddy then hmu. We can do this.

    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.

    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 :(

    Day 53 This is my health,

    it's time to take it seriously and take charge. It's not a joke anymore, I can't keep saying "I'll start eating healthy and exercise tommorow" I have picked myself up again and I know I will need to have alot of patience and self control on this journey.

    Ive never been skinny.

    Curves are in my genes. My mom and grandmother are both obese. I fought being healthy since 10, but what really helped was dancing classes that started when I was 16. Then I got to normal weight but still hated my body and considered myself fat. When i got older, i really hit...
