    Inner Thoughts ...

    I am overweight, in fact according to my bmi,

    I am verging on morbidly obese and probably am over that now as I checked last year. I want to make changes but I never do and I used to think it was laziness but a lack of motivation is different to just being lazy isn't it? Like, I think that if I lose weight that all my...

    I hate that I am constantly worrying in my mind

    if I gained weight today. I hate that I feel fat everyday. I hate that no matter what I do I don't feel skinny. I can't get the thought out of my head. I hate looking at myself in the mirror.

    I worry too much about my weight.

    I weight 139 pounds and 5"4. I'm not over weight or too skinny but I just can't get myself to love my body. I only see the flaws and then when I try to lose weight I just can't get myself to do it. I'm so mess up.

    Fatty

    I'm fat. Fatter than I've ever been in my life. Part of it is due to the fact that I have PCOS, and endocrine disorder that makes losing weight very difficult, more difficult than for those who do not have it. The other reason is because lately I have been cripplingly depressed...

    So I've Got to Do Something About It!

    I've been working out for about a month.  I've seen results, but I haven't made any drastic changes to my diet.  I really don't have a choice in that, so I've just recently added a daytime workout to my night time regimen.  So I can lose more weight.
