    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 like going to the gym.

    It feels great when you weight yourself and see that you've lost more~ But one thing I don't like much... Is the knee pain I have after workout. Hurts too much!! I apply ice and stretch my body/legs correctly, but still, the pain takes like two days to go away~ Ah well...

    I've lost 20 lbs in 2 & 1/2 months

    and I feel great! I've never felt as good in the gym as I did today. I'm really enjoying my progress so far :)

    I've broken my habitual eating cycle

    and I've ate very well in as much as not much at all this week in comparison to what I normally ply my stomach with. I'm very happy to get to today and know that I have yet to binge or eat anything beyond 2000 calories. Hell some days I don't even know if I made it to 1500. I'm...

    So today I went shopping

    and there was that top I absolutely wanted. Sadly there wasn't my size. I hate when that happens, it's so frustrating ; when you leave the shop, also leaving a part of you there, with empty hands, it's completely heartbreaking. But there was the size under mine and since i've...

    The past year has been really stressful

    for me. I lost a parent, quit school, lost friends, and I'm now starting a new job. I have always been heavy but this past year I've gained a lot of weight back that I had lost at one point. I feel so discouraged. I've started eating better and going to the gym more and I'm just...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I inevitably gained the freshman 15.

    I need to lose about 40 pounds, and hopefully my stretch marks will fade. My biggest problem is getting bored working out. Exercise suggestions?

    I have been eating a lot better

    than I usually do this week. But today I was terrible. I ate fast food and sugar. I just feel bleh now. It is so hard. And I literally don't even know if I'm eating the right things. I'm just feeling frustrated.
