    I would just like to say

    that to anyone who wants to lose weight you can do it. I've lost 9 pounds in 3 weeks and all I did was healthy eat and exercise. I guess if you want to lose it really bad you will :)

    When I graduated high school I was 180lb

    and only 5foot 3. I managed to lose 60 lb in a year and a half. Now 3 years later I've gained 20 back. I really want to lose weight again but even exercising isn't helping this time.

    I'm happy today!! I've lost around 40 pounds

    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...

    In march I started eating better

    and exercising and I lost 20 pounds in a month! I was so proud of myself. But I have since hit a plateau. I haven't gained any weight but I haven't lost any. Ugh. I'm so depressed. I need help.

    I have lost all my motivation.

    I feel like people will judge me if I don't start losing weight again. And they'll think I'm not committed.

    For an entire year now I've been down 30 pounds.

    I would like to lose ten more because I'm on 5'1 so I still look chubby in my opinion at 130. I also found out a year ago that I have a tear in my right hip, which makes it impossible to do any cardio. I also have carpal tunnel so I am not able to lift weights. What can I do to...

    Losing weight is a journey.

    Some people can do it alone, some people need motivation and some people need people or coach to help them. For me, I need all these three things to help me. Before this I was overweight. I was about 117KG (about 258 lb). I manage to lost 41KG (90lb). I just want to inspire to...

    Why is it so hard to lose weight?

    !? It is said that if you gain weight fast then you lose weight fast but it seems like it's long and slow to lose weight and fast to gain.so unfair

    I'm tired of being an outcast

    because of my weight. Am I not worthy of love or deserving of basic human rights, just because I'm not a size zero or four or twelve? I've tried losing weight..... The more I seem to try, the more I seem to gain. What's wrong with me?

    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 always been trying to lose the weight

    but it's just so hard. You have to be mentally ready for it but I don't think I'm ready. I'm ready to change that's a fact but when I feel depressed or useless I turn to food as my thing to complete me idk. Maybe it's time to change for real right?

    I want to lose weight,

    but I'd really only do it so people would think I'm more attractive.. Either way nobody is going to like me, so I'm just going to not care and eat what I want.

    So far, as I write this,

    I've lost a cumulative total of 130lbs. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I'm close compared to where I was 2 years ago. I'm now weighing in at 225 lbs, and am still on my way to 160!

    because I feel like I'm not doing it for myself. I keep trying though. Eventually I will see what I want and strive for it more to make the lifestyle easier to adjust to.
