    I wanna go from 135-115.

    I am obsessed with food though, and I talk myself out of working out more often than not. I am going to make it a priority to stop doing both. It all starts with a deep breath of resolution and continues one meal and one work out at a time.

    I've gained around ten pounds in the last 8

    or 9 months. I think it might have to do with the fact that I started taking antidepressants and birth control, but I don't want to stop either of these medications. My goal is to balance my portions better in the new year, as well as drinking more water and less soda. I also...

    I need motivation, but I can't seem to find it.

    I also have low metabolism, can't really balance my diet. Kinda hate that I get shy to workout at the gym where other people are around.

    Okay I had a fitness test done Monday at the

    Body Exchange that I go to because I was getting bored with my workouts. It took about 10 seconds to find out how much my back is really screwed up. I hope that this doesn't come out like a judgment but then when I was carrying almost 90 pounds to much for my size how could it...

    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 :(

    Has anyone tried the serving size diet?

    I lost about 10lbs a month doing it along with 10-30mins of exercise a day (and I did stop eating white bread and drinking soda). I nearly certain you can lose more with more exercise. If any of you decide to try it you can message me about it. I hope any diet you're starting on...

    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...
