    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...

    I know you'll think this is silly,

    but oh my god! I can feel my hip bones! I mean, they aren't sticking out or anything like that, but I can't remember the last time I could! It's definitely the little things, isn't it? I'm slowly getting there!

    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...

    I want to lose weight

    so badly. I am at my highest (170 lbs) and I have put on about 25 pounds since I've got to high school (I am currently a junior). It sucks because things that used to fit me are very tight on me. Tomorrow I have a doctors appointment and I'm very scared because I know my mom...

    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...

    My mum said to me that no one will want to

    marry me if I don't start to lose weight. Out of all the horrible comments I've received from her, that has to be one of the worst ones. It's almost as if she's saying I'm not worthy of love just because of my weight. She was literarily down my throat screaming how I've got to...

    I've gained around ten pounds in the last 8

    or 9 months. I think it might have to do with the fact that I started taking antidepressants and birth control, but I don't want to stop either of these medications. My goal is to balance my portions better in the new year, as well as drinking more water and less soda. I also...

    where I didn't eat after 6 and I only ate around 500 cals a day, or sometimes alittle more. from that time frame to now I've went from 264 to 220. slowly I found myself sinking back into my old routine of noodles and eating twice as much at school. I have not started drinking...

    Has anyone tried the serving size diet?

    I lost about 10lbs a month doing it along with 10-30mins of exercise a day (and I did stop eating white bread and drinking soda). I nearly certain you can lose more with more exercise. If any of you decide to try it you can message me about it. I hope any diet you're starting on...

    I need motivation, but I can't seem to find it.

    I also have low metabolism, can't really balance my diet. Kinda hate that I get shy to workout at the gym where other people are around.

    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 :(
