    Has anyone used a waist trainer?

    ? I bought one not to long ago, and I'm not sure if it's really making much of a difference

    Hey everyone. I'm new to the page

    so here's a little about me. I'm 5'5 and I'm 160 pounds. I've struggled with weight most of my life due to a hormone imbalance that dictates my life. I recently got engaged and want to lose weight to be healthy and look good in that wedding dress. My fiancé ships to basics in...

    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 have been eating a lot better

    than I usually do this week. But today I was terrible. I ate fast food and sugar. I just feel bleh now. It is so hard. And I literally don't even know if I'm eating the right things. I'm just feeling frustrated.

    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...

    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...

    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 :(

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I like going to the gym.

    It feels great when you weight yourself and see that you've lost more~ But one thing I don't like much... Is the knee pain I have after workout. Hurts too much!! I apply ice and stretch my body/legs correctly, but still, the pain takes like two days to go away~ Ah well...

    The past year has been really stressful

    for me. I lost a parent, quit school, lost friends, and I'm now starting a new job. I have always been heavy but this past year I've gained a lot of weight back that I had lost at one point. I feel so discouraged. I've started eating better and going to the gym more and I'm just...

    I want to lose weight

    so badly but am really struggling at the moment. It's more down to the exercise side of things. I can eat healthily and have lost a stone but now I have to focus on toning up. I hate exercise. I hate the way your muscles burn and how out of breath I get. I hate how your muscles...
