    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 really do want to lose weight.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 don't think I'm terribly overweight.

    I'm 5'2 and 115 lb. I just feel I could be thinner, but I end up just starving myself and that's not healthy, or helping my situation.

    5 years ago I weighed almost 150KG

    and had a gastric bypass done. I now weigh 99KG. For an ideal BMI I should get it down to 86KG. In a week I turn 29 years old. I'm making a promise to myself today: I will reach that 86KG goal before I turn 30.
