    I'm down 10 lbs since January 9th!

    !! I'm now at 265 lbs. I have a loooong way to go but I AM going to do it. My clothes are fitting better, my energy level has spiked, I'm happier, I'm drinking less, I don't get out of breath just by changing my clothes. There was a sack of potatoes in the kitchen that was 5...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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 mean, I think I've finally gotten my eating

    habits under control. I just need to get out and move, which is hard for me because I don't want people judging me (shrugs). I would exercise at my house, but I stay on the second floor (upstairs) and I'm sure my mom would hear a lot of bumping and jumping. ._. I guess I need to...

    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'm at an annoying stage in my weight loss

    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 :(
