    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'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...

    Okay, so I was introduced to Aloe Vera Jel by

    Forever Living Product which would assist in weight loss :) I'm still trying it and seeing if it would help me lose weight. First off, the taste isn't great but you gotta do whatever it takes to lose weight!

    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...

    It doesn't matter how much you want to lose,

    or how hard it will be, what matters is that feeling you get when you step on those scales and see you've lost the weight you set out for!

    In the last year I have gained a lot of weight.

    I have always been around 135 and I've shot up to 170. I just want to get back where I was. I have been watching what I eat, not really dieting, just limiting the amount of junk. I have also started walking. I walked 3 miles twice this week, both on paths with a lot of elevation...
