I'm 5'5, 16 years old and 230 pounds....

I feel so disgusting and gross.
My goal weight is to be 160-170.

I worked for many years as an over the road truck driver and had been slim most of my young life, but starting to drive over the road trucks in my early 20's i become less active and over weight, then I got out of driving and into factory work, it helped but it was not enough, still out of shape bad, I could not even do 10 push ups . it really began to take its toll on me, and by the time I was 45 and trained as a EMT(Paramedic) working and caring for people and seeing what my future was heading for I knew I had to make a change and a Lady I was dating helped to it was a team effort, we started doing a program by beachbody that her son had gotten and not used yet, P90x , it saved me and he from our selves it helped with diet and well the workouts were tough, I have since learned of some not so tough and work well for very overweight and out of shape.

I feel your pain people and now I have decided to help others to reach their fitness goals, with Beach body's help and some time you too can reach your goal. I have before and after pictures to show if anybody wants to see them,

I feel where you're coming from. I've struggled with my weight since middle school. I've tried numerous diets , pills , expensive doctor treatments. But I never ever seem to stay dedicated to it. Yes I loss about 20-30 pounds but a month after seeing good results I go back to my old habits & the weight comes back on! Once you decide to take that initial step towards your weight loss just promise yourself that you will stay committed. Remember you didn't gain the weight over night so don't expect to loss it over night. It all takes time.
