    Feeling really motivated today!

    After a horrible weekend of eating non-stop, I'm finally recovering from it. Two more pounds and I'll be where I was before the weekend! I'm determined not to mess it up this time!

    Ugh I've gained weight

    since recovery. I want to go back to not eating and purging if I did, but I'm going to try to eat, just less. Hopefully it won't become too obsessive like it has in the past....

    Balancing carbs to protein.

    And keeping servings as servings helps a lot . Here's a simple rule about portion control. If it fits in your palm, it's one serving.

    I have actually lost weight 30lbs the thing is

    I don't feel like I have. I feel very fat still. People tell me I've lost a lot of weight and that it's very noticeable but I think my double chin and my big stomach are proof I haven't really lost much.

    I want to lose weight

    now more for my confidence than anything else, because I have none. I play enough sport, I put 110% into everything, but its food that lets me down

    I've been a gymnast for 7 years

    and as a result I have really big thighs. It's not fat, it's all muscle, but it still makes me look really big and I'm 3 sizes bigger than all the other girls in my grade. I always see all these really skinny girls at my gym and they always call me "thunder thighs" and I really...

    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 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 :(

    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...

    I want to lose 120 lbs.

    My problem is I'm an emotional and binge eater. I use food as a comfort blanket like Linus from Charlie Brown. Foods is my seems like my best friend but it's my worst enemy.

    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

    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...
