I Need to Lose Weight!

I really need to lose weight! I put on a lot of weight during the course of a 2 1/2 year relationship that I ended 5 months ago. I started losing some weight the first 2 months because I was heartbroken. Lately the last few months I have been really depressed and began craving sugar and sweets a lot. My neighbor just had a surprise Birthday party for her husband two weekends ago. Today she brought by the pictures of the party in which I was in a few of them. Oh my lord! I knew I had put on weight but I wanted to cry when I saw myself! I look enormous in these pictures! I look so sad in these photos! I let myself go and I am so ashamed and embarrassed! Anyone reading please say a prayer for me! I should also mention that diabetes runs on both sides of my family very badly! So for health reasons also I need to get this weight off! My father and brother are both diabetic!

my husband is at 103kgs for the past 6 years, he is 30 years old now and 5 feet 11 inches. He had tried eating healthy and reduce a lot by eating out for unhealthy foods, I have tried to cook healthy food for him everyday. He also exercise around 3-4 times a week. Drinking plenty of water is a must...but..his heavy weight still remain the same. It is very stressful and depressed to both of us because we had tried all ways but it doesn't seems to be worked. and his health getting worse than 3 years ago. With increase of uric acid, high cholesterol level, high fatty liver, blood sugar level increase too. Doctor told us, the only way to keep good health is to --- loose weight first. Other than way!
We have known a friend and she is a pharmacist, after the long chat and evaluation of his condition, it could be the caused of low metabolic rate of his body. Therefore, she introduced us to try focus to increase his metabolic rate first. At first, it really cost much to us as it is not cheap and we are uncertain it is effective and worth trying. But we still take the risk to try the product because we are so keen to see changes. I bought it from online store (slimmingproducts.slimming-shop). For about 30 days,.. he really start to see himself loosing weight at abdominal area. All of his friend also comment to him that he have successfully slim down lately. We are truly satisfied and looking forward to see more changes on his weight and health improvements soon too.
I wish you stay healthy too!
All the best to you..

I gained 50 pounds since April I'm super peeved that I let it happen but I plan on losing at least 30 pounds because I only have 3 pairs of pants that I literally can fit into :/ this sucks..

After years of frustration and my weight going up and down like a yo yo my good friend introduced me to her product and it has changed my life. It is an ALL NATURAL product (everything in it has been around for 100's of years) and I lost 3 lbs in 5 days! My energy level is way up and my cravings for food are down, big time.

AGAIN that is

every freakin time I look at photos taken like a year ago or so, I could honestly say darn I was smaller there. that means I'm gettin fatter and fatter everyday :(

Alright lose weight but do it healthly. Like exercise 4 60 mins everyday and eat more fruits & vegetables than meats. If u crave a sweet try reaching 4 a fruit instead. But don't go all out either, remember food is ur friend. The reason I'm saying this is cuz I want 2 lose weight but everytime I try I end up wanting 2 starve I'm afraid of I try again I'll end up doing tht.

You should consider medical management. There are a few good options.

If you gained weight, unless its health problems preventing you there is no one, and no thing to blame but your self. Its not stress, your job, situations in your life, but the choices you made to say its ok to gain weight. Weight control is something that is constant, not on and off again. <br />
<br />
The way to lose weight is simple. Caloric in take. This is ba<x>sed on how much calories you take in vs physical activity. If you are gaining weight, referring to body fat since not all weight makes us look fat, you are taking in too many calories. This does not mean you should starve your self, and go in the opposite direction. It just means to start cutting back in how large your meals are until you start seeing the results you want. Also, by eating more protein and reducing carbohydrates (fruit and vegetables) will go a long way. Much of this is due to the physiological effect that carbohydrates have on our body, and protein will help counteract. <br />
<br />
The RDA recommended daily allowance states that the very least we should be eating about 30% of our meals with protein. i know many people say protein is bad for you, and that is just false information. Any nutrition book will tell you what I am saying here. It also means that since 30% is the bare minimum, that you can and to lose weight should eat protein higher than this number. <br />
<br />
Exercise. Exercise is the best way to reduce body fat. Not only does exercise help you burn body fat much quicker than reducing calories, it also will help firm and ton up what you have while giving you that nice hard body you had as a teen and early twenties. When comparing exercise vs dieting, studies consistently demonstrate exercise works better than diets. <br />
<br />
Granted how you exercise can make a world of difference to how quick those results may be. And, the time you put into exercising. But, do not get too far a head of your self. The most important aspect to focus on is that you just start getting more physically active. You do not have to put hours in a day, or every day, but you do need to put in a little time on a regular scheduled routine. You will be surprise to not just how far a little time can make a world of difference. <br />
<br />
The same studies that show exercise works better than diet also show the best results come from combining both. Exercise and diet. <br />
<br />
Yes, neither exercise and/or diet may be fun for many people. For those, ask yourself, what is more important to you, fun, or results. If the results that you want are important enough for you, then you will do it. if the are not, then you wont. Chance are for those that want and try to put fun first, that you wont see any results, if any. And, the results you do see will not be coming quick enough to keep you motivated in continuing. If you are only concerned about results then you will find the fun in these once you start seeing the results and reactions from people around you.

I had that exact same experience... saw some photos at Thanksgiving and I hope I don't look that big in real life, but OMG, I looked like a house!

well here is the first thing :) belittle the problem. this allows you to overcome it without a problem. as to the weight. it annoys you right? this is what i did to lose weight. it annoyed me so much i used it to workout. if that makes since. so instead of eating a filled up a large container of orange juice and i worked out for an hour or two. the anger went away on its own and i lost the weight so i was losing a reason to be annoyed. and as to your sugar problem. there are many natural herbs and such that speed up the sugar degrading process. so it lowers the blood pressure. lowers the sugar level and apprently prevents smoking idk. im doing research on it right now i need a few weeks to finish that up. in all honestly. ignore the world. go for a walk. bring 2 books. one for reading and one for writing. write down everything. i mean everything that you want to think about. write a list of problems no solutions just problems. then when you go on your next walk start from the top of the list and think of what you want done with that problems what is the most optomistic scenerio in that situation. then find that and work backwards. this is how i solve things. i started wiith your goal. wants to be happy. by being happy you need to believe in yourseld and know that only you can truly help yourself. we can all try but their only words. even actions will never mean as much unless you do it yourself. no its not hard. if you ever think its to hard go for a walk and proove that its not as hard as you think it is. a defeatest attitude leades to extreme depression. ive dealt with many of those cases. but you have an open mind. your asking now before you get there.<br />
<br />
find some alone time. think by yourself. solv the problms alone. then tell others what and how you did it :)<br />
<br />
<br />

Why don't you try some weight loss pills or diets? the fact that you broke up with your boyfriend does not mean that you should lose faith in you and become overweight. You should look beautiful and take care of your body!!! Include more exercise into your life, eat healthier food and start informing yourself on the food you eat. You should cut on the calories your food contains. Try to read more about different diets and weight loss pills existing on our market and do not forget that the world still turns around its axe and the results you will have depend on the things you do...<br />
I can give a good blog where you can read interesting information

since my last post i have gained more weight and now im up over the 500lb mark and its alot harder to get around and even to find pants and shirts in my size is so difficult im so big right now it does suck.

You want to do yourself right? Go on a very low carb diet and stay on it. make it a way of life. My weight got up to 290 two years ago. One of my best friends started calling me the walrus. Then I read a book called Why we get fat and what. Can do about it by Gary Taubes. What a life change! The first week was tough, but after that I actually began to feel sane again. I have adopted the attitude that carbs no longer exist for me. I don't see myself as deprived, they simply stopped making carbs in my mind. Sound simplistic? Maybe so, but a year later I was down 100 lbs and it has stayed there for the last year. I eat what I want and wast until I am full as long as it is either protein of green and leafy. Try it sweetheart, you will be amazed.

Hi well I can tell you really want to loose the weight so I would start looking at what you are eating, cut your starch,intake and your sugars and be as active as you can in your schedule always doing a little more each week. I do not know where you live but here in Canada I went to Herble magic and talked to them. There herbal prducts might be simliar or the same as pleusslim <br />
that the other fellow mentioned you can try it. I was loosing about 2 lbs. per week roughly.<br />
<br />

I think your motivated enough to get back on track. I had let myself slip also. I started working out and being more active, but it wasn't getting me quite there. My best friend's girlfriend introduced me to a product called plexus slim. I thought it was a bunch of BS but after trying in for a week I saw results. After two weeks I became a member and started selling the product. Check out my website Maybe you can become a member and start helping other people with the weight lost problems alot of us face.

I used my FAT pictures to inspire me to lose weight.I lost 20 kg over two years.I walk alot and eat lots of protein, fruit and veg.My main meal is at lunch.My downfall is sugar but I try just to have a little.I have steadily lost weight and not gained any back but it has been slow.

ive tied losing weight in the past and nothing worked until one day i just started eating healthy and the weight came off but then I just wanted to eat again and i gained back over 140lbs now im still gaining and cant seem to lsoe the weight i curently weigh 455lbs.

Hi people well to loose weight you need to increase your daily activity, reduce the amount of starch intake and drink lots of water. Water helps to flush all the bad food you eat through your system and delute what stays. In December of 09 I was 30lbs over weight and I went into Herbal Magic a weight loss clinic and so besides the herbal products i was taking I completely chaged me diet to a lot of protien andvegtables and fruits and low fat salad dressings.<br />
<br />
I hope this helps you people. I know quite well it is hard. Samantha

You don't say if the breakup has made you depressed but it may have a lot to do with it. That's what friends are for! Get them to take you out - either for lunch, shopping, or a drink in the evening and celebrate your single-hood. Friends are great to unload on too. They're like a living journal.<br />
<br />
You could consider joining OA (overeaters anonymous) I bet it is a supportive group and you may meet friends there who could be motivational. <br />

Visit a nutritionist and get a healthy, delicious, realistic daily menu that you can stick to while shedding pounds.

I went from an uk size 8 to a size 12. due to the fact that i was made redunant last year. i always walked to and from work, was on my feet for 12 hours. now i am a homemaker. i used to eat one chocolate and one packet of crisps during the day. once a day i took the dog for a walk and that was it. now i have started doing squashes and lunges with resistance training every night. i had about 20 reps every time i work out and tonight my legs hurt alot, which means its working. hopefully one of these days i will start jogging away and will lose the weight i gained. PS i hate the way i look but my bf loves my curves....

Everyone's body is different, but there's usually a surefire way to lose some weight. Don't think starting intense diets or taking pills will do anything, you might decrease in body fat % but your skin will be so loose it wont worth it. Most importantly, STAY AWAY FROM CHARLATANS selling you snake oil. No pill has ever led to consistent weight loss.<br />
<br />
Try this; eat what you want, within reason. If you can, go for the fat-free or low-calorie alternative. If you crave something unhealthy, eat it, but only have a little. Just have half a chocolate bar instead of all of it, or two handfuls of chips instead of an entire bag. Understand that you wont lose weight overnight and that depriving yourself will backfire on the long run. While you switch your eating habits around, the most important you must take the most important step, which is working out. I can't stress how critical this is, not to losing weight, but to not gaining it back again. There are huge advantages, both physical and psychological. You'll feel better due to the endorphins released, you'll tone up, your skin will get clearer, your calorie requirements will increase dramatically, thus accelerating the rate at which you lose weight, and you'll be able to handle yourself better on your day-to-day chores. If you think working out will be boring, make it fun. I personally love jogging with loud music in my ears, but some days I just can't be bothered. That's when the inline skates come out. If the gym is not for you, join a dancing class, or a martian art (huge benefits there). Remember to make it fun, or it wont last, you'll eventually get bored and quit.<br />
<br />
Trust me when I say you will struggle some days, but you won't be the first or the last. If you slip up, don't beat yourself about it, just make up for it by working out harder the next time. Don't skip any meals, take the stairs where you can, and remember that nothing happens overnight. I promise you though that if you stick to this plan, you'll start feeling better about yourself. I know you can make it, you're not worse than all the others that went through the same issues as you.
