    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 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 :(

    So I worked a very physical job

    for 4 yrs. this kept my weight very stable. Sadfully it also took a toll on my body. I left that job almost 3 yrs ago. In the first 6 months after I left I put on 60lbs. I had realized I put on a few, but not this much. Right now I weigh 230 lbs. I'd like to get back to my high...

    I'm in the process of trying to lose weight.

    However, I love outdoor activities but I'm scared to do them. I'll only go for a bike ride if it's like at 6am. My biggest fear is running into people I know at the weight I'm at. I'm embarrassed. It's not just exercise I hesitate to go to public places like the grocery store.

    I just had a dream where I had my dream body

    and it motivated me so much. Always keep your end goal in mind. Think of all the benefits. Like not wanting to hid your body anymore. Having fun at the beach with friends. Not feeling embarrassed to eat a slice of pizza because you don't want people to judge you. Think of the...

    and now I'm a bona-fide self-loathing anorexic.

    Thanks to society's overbearing pressure to look good, and a lifelong lack of physical compliments, I've dropped nearly 145lbs. Maybe I'm just looking for a connection. Maybe, I'm just tired of living my life alone. Maybe I'm tired of hating myself, my looks, and, my past. Do...

    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'm seriously determined to lose weight.

    I'm 140kg. Perhaps one thing I'm doing wrong is not setting goals. Is 5kg in two weeks a good goal?

    I run cross country,

    so I lift 3 days a week and run 8-9 miles, 6 days a week and I do not have a flat stomach. I guess I don't eat very healthily, but I still am very active so I should be nice and skinny and have a flat stomach. I'm 115 lbs but I just want to lose my stomach.

    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...

    I can't come to terms with the way my body is.

    I've put on 5 kilos this year, and it is not a lot to lose, but it is a mammoth struggle as I am very depressed and I am an emotional eater. My self worth is tied into my weight, I will not be happy until I lose 10kg.
