I Have

I have been overweight all of my life.

My family life was such that... I looked for and needed comfort somewhere, and I went to food.

I've been ridiculed for being the fat, awkward girl for as long as I can remember.

I don't want to say my weight here, but, honestly, I'm 100 over what I feel like I'm supposed to be.

I don't know what to do. I've been so sick recently that I couldn't eat, and standing up makes me incredibly dizzy... so I waddle around the house a bit but mostly stay in my room.

I'm repulsed by the fatty that I see in the mirror.

As soon as I see the doctor and can eat normally again, I'm going to eat healthy.  I'm going to walk at least a mile a day...

Every little bit counts, right?

I have a gorgeous, sweet boyfriend, who says I'm beautiful, no matter what size I am.

I appreciate that... but... I want his heart to skip a beat and his breath to be taken away when he sees me.

We'll see what happens...



... I just want to be beautiful.

I never used to like to drink water, but each day upon getting out of bed, I now immediately drink 1 large glass of clear water.<br />
There is no magic secret that will help anyone lose weight.<br />
Stay accountable to yourself, change little things.<br />
In addition to being more active each day and limiting your sodium intake; on a daily basis, drink some extra water.<br />
To help achieve long term weight loss, everyone's body must be kept properly hydrated. IN THE LONG TERM; weight loss comes about through eating less food each day.<br />
One tip which I followed in my pursuit of healthier weight; was to make water my drink of choice! Space your water drinking out throughout the day, and never drink more than 12 quarts in any one day. I now drink 1 ounce of water, each day, for each pound that I weigh. At present, my weight is 25.6% less than it used to be. I feel great! <br />
Anyone will lose weight by reading and following the right information; as such, being healthy is a lifestyle, not a diet! There are many good tips on how to achieve permanent weight loss; none of them includes gimmicks, diets, or diet pills. <br />
To assist with weight control; keep a daily food journal and every time the urge to snack is felt, first drink a large glass of clear water. It does not hurt to treat yourself with something special once in a while, what is necessary is that you moderate your food portions. <br />
Being overweight hurt me in many ways, but after reading a book, I lost 85 pounds! Words can not express how good I feel! This is a comment which I recently received about the book "Lose Weight Using Four Easy Steps".

Thank you. It's good to have support. :)<br />
