    So I had a moment of realization.

    I don't hate myself because I'm fat, but rather, other people do, and sometimes I care for some reason. This has been going on my whole life. About the time I started to gain weight in about the 3rd grade, those that once called me friend, were now trying to beat me up or spit...

    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.

    Why some people who loose weight get excess skin

    but some not? How about anorexic? Do they get excess skin?

    Day- 3 Had to skip today.

    Doctor gave me metabolism boosters and it sent me into a sugar shock because I'm borderline hypoglycemic so I am trying to recoup. I still have a huge headache am nauseous and feel weak even after eating. Hate that I couldn't go today :(

    I like being curvy dont get me wrong,

    but sometimes it sucks a lot. Lets just say i'm not the most athletic or toned. It also sucks cause its hard to find cloth that fit me well without looking for a long time. I go to the gym and run sometimes but i always seem to "forget" going. Ugh. PS: that is Kevin from the...

    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...

    I didn't realize until today how much I need to

    lose weight. I'm not "fat" but I'm a little chubby. And in the photos taken of my siblings and myself, I look like I've gained 10 lbs! So here's to the next month of dieting and working out more. Not to be skinny but to be healthy again.

    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 :(

    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...

    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 motivated finally.

    Right now I'm 5'9 210lbs and while that may sound bad, I don't look fat by any means but I could be in better shape. I decided for my very first day of workout and each one after that, to push myself to the extremes like my coaches use to do when I played football. First day I...

    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...
