    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.

    My mum gave me a fruit salad today

    and I already had a roll. She meant well but it was extra calories I didn't want. Felt bad so I ate it all. It was a massive serving too. I exercised for a few minutes of the work out app I have. I can barely do any of the tasks and if I can it only lasts a few seconds. I can...

    Losing weight is very difficult.

    Maintaining it is even harder. I have a very small torso so it's easy for me to get fat. I have a muscular frame so I don't look bad but I want to lose at least 10 pounds. Eat healthy freaking sucks

    I'd like to lose 15 pounds.

    Everyone around me tells me I don't need to, but it's not just about generic skinniness. I'd love to be in shape and healthy again. I eat smaller portions now and run two miles a day, just gotta stay patient. :)

    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 think I've got my appetite some what under

    control. I only eat 3 times a day. It's just a matter of deciding what I should eat. I did go to McDonald's this morning, but that was because I over slept and there are 3 McDonald's on the way to school. Haha. I'm gonna be home alone tonight, so I'll probably pick something up...

    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.

    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...

    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...
