hi there. I am 34 years old and it sounds like you wrote my story all but the miscarriage. I have horrible legs. Blood clots, circulation, swelling the list goes on. I have gained over125 pounds in the last year. I have just downloaded the free app noon. It pretty much tells you when to rest, eat, work out, it gives you a calorie goal and subtracts what you log. It has a built in pedometer. This is my first week. I will let you know how the first week goes. Good luck to all fighting the fat!

You didn't mention nutrition once in your post. Think about the food you put into your body, how your body will use it, or not use it. Avoid overly processed foods, sugar, regular soda, and fast food. Here is a simple thing to try. Next time you visit the grocery store, load up on veggies and fresh fruits, legumes(beans), whole grains like brown rice, and pick up a multivitamin. You don't have to overhaul your kitchen in one trip. Try to substitute a few non-healthy foods with healthier options. Small changes like this go a long way towards losing weight.

Once you start seeing the numbers drop, your willpower and motivation will skyrocket. All the exercise in the world doesn't matter if you're putting in thousands of nutritionally deficit calories into your body. Food is a tool for your body; read up on the many healthy and less processed foods available and give your body the best tools it can to run efficiently. If exercise doesn't feel like its helping, try to get out of the house everyday for a relaxing walk or bike ride to reduce stress and anxiety, and burn calories while you're at it!

Good luck, it takes a lot of time (years) before you will be a normal weight. If you need more motivation, think of your children, your husband, and your future grandchildren. You only have one life with them on this world, make the best of it.

I've gone from 325 to 255 on a pure vegan diet, and the weight hasn't stopped dropping. It took a year to lose those 70 pounds, and it'll take another year+ for the other
70 pounds i want to lose. Also, my diabetes doesn't require pills or insulin anymore.

Best wishes,
Eric

thank you for your thoughts and yes i know exactly how you feel, i wanna lose weight cause i do not wanna look back on the really inportant things in my life and look the way i do and i certinally dont wanna be this size and have children but the thing is i do not look as big as the numbers show and its sad, but yes i would love to keep in contact with you, i could use a friend who knows what i am going through ....... hope to hear from you

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I know how you feel with the weight and I too need a buddy to talk to and help motivate me to keep trying to lose weight. At 265 with a 2 year old I just don't have enough energy to keep up with her. I don't want her to look back on her child hood when she gets older and think my mom could never play with me because of her weight. If you want to keep in touch and lose weight together just let me know.

Hey!! We all get down guys!! But its how fast we can get back up and keep going!! No matter what the problems are... there is always a solution. We dont quit... we dont give up! Be strong and understand YOUR body is depending on YOU to be healthy. If you don't take care of yourself who will? Stop thinking negative and the positive will come your way.. Think Positive and Positive things will happen! There is no time to feel down and out!! You guys are over comers! You ARE a winner! NOT a LOSER!! So start ACTING like a WINNER!!

thanks guys, i know its hard and the main reason i wanna lose weight is not only to live tomorrow and for the next 60 years is that i need my body to start working right so i can try and have a baby..

Hi Lynn,<br />
<br />
I too am sorry about your miscarriage. I can totally relate to your situation. I weigh 310 lbs. I am a diabetic and take pills and 2 types of insulin. I am very depressed and often think about suicide. I have never told anyone that. I think that maybe I just need someone to talk to that can really understand what I am feeling. I would like to chat with you sometime. Hope to hear from you soon.

i'm sorry about your miscarriage. See a nutritionist or a trainer if you need serious help, but if thats too much working out with your friends usually has better results. The support works wonders!<br />
good luck!
