I'Ve Had Enough

I am sick and tired of it.
I'm tired of not finding real-life friends.
I'm tired of being rejected.
I'm tired of being single.
I'm tired of not being able to get a job.
I'm tired of being viewed as inferior.

Face it: when you're fat, you're looked down upon. Nobody wants to tell you that they won't hire or talk to you because of the way you look, but it's the truth. Yeah, it's messed up. But it's what I've learned.
A few months ago, I refused to eat more than 800-1000 calories a day. And you know what? I lost 15 lbs in 2 weeks. I would have continued doing it if I hadn't have been diagnosed with PCOS (my gynecologist said that I needed to eat more...), so I gained all of that weight back and THEN some. 
Honestly? Forget her. It's healthier to undereat than remain obese, slow, and tired all the time. To be frank, it's not that hard to eat less once you get used to it for a week or so (it's more of a mental thing than anything). So that's what I'm officially doing starting tomorrow. I just needed to make an official statement so there's no going back (it's more for myself, really).
Once I lose at least 80lbs (I'm over 200 right now), then I'll see what happens. 

3...2...1... GO!

I recently lost weight after reading a really cool book 'Think & Lose Weight'. Its on amazon and its all about getting your head right and that you don't need to starve yourself or exercise to lose weight. Its amazing.

Hi,

I weighed under 140 until I had a bad illness at 43, in two years I jumped up to 250. It was amazing to me how differently I was treated.

I am well again and on the way back down. I am not near 140 yet, but more than half way there. But recently, I decided, I look attractive to me. I know where I have been, I know my struggles. I look in my eyes, and I like what I see. My skin is soft, and I am still a little soft and padded. What a nice place for someone who needed a soft place to fall. I am not about my appearance, I know it impacts others, but I am about what I feel. I do also want to loose the weight. And I wish you the best of a combination of self-improvement/health and personal self image. I am still working on my story.... Thank you for sharing.

Hi - I know how you feel. I am over 200 lbs now and feel terrible mentally and physically. I could use some support trying to lose weight. I really do not have close friends nearby. And it is hard to make new friends when you are big. Lots of prejudice out there.

Hey there,

I would love to help you. Do you exercise at all? If not, I would love to encourage you to do so, and join one of my test groups/challenge groups. By exercising a min of 30 min a day and incorporating exercise, I promise that weight will fall off, and you can enjoy a life of balance! You won't have to reduce your calories just to lose weight. You may actually start to enjoy it even! If any of this sounds appealing to you, I urge you to send me an email and I will give you more details. I would love to help! My email is teamonefocus@yahoo.com. Hope to hear from you.

Good for you :) I hope you stay strong

Be sure you are eating good healthy food. Be sure to get out and walk. After a lengthy illness I gain alot of weight. I cut down on food portions not really on what I ate just the amount. After I lost the first twenty five pounds I could move! I started walking and lost 65 more. That was the years ago and it's still off. Good for you and good luck!
