How come everybody here seems to think the only reason you can be overweight is overeating? There can be other reasons too. I have been skinny and active all my life till i got a kidney disease not to long ago. that gave me fluid retentiton. an dthen i had to take a very high dose of prednisone for a two months. I'm still on it. I started gaining weight on it. and the last time I went to the doctor their height/weight chart said i was about 30 pounds overweight already in this short peroid of time. The doctor said my "moonface" will eventually slim down after i'm off the steroid. i know that fluid retention will go away easy but fat is harder to get rid of. and i have to admit prednisone makes me hungry all the time. and if i try to skip meals or snacks i get horrible cramps. my dovtor said that was normal for the dose i'm taking.
is their anything i can do to prevent myself from overeating? so when i'm off this can go to my normal weight. I take dance lesons reguraly.

Hi. This is my first time on this site. I need help bad. I have been fat for 6 or 7 years now. I am 4'10 and weigh a huge 400 pounds. This makes me feel so sad and unhappy. So I eat. And I mean eat. When I get really unhappy I can eat 2 x-large pizzas myself. My stretche marks line my body. I have a donut sized belly butten. I need specially made cloths. I tried to find cloths at normal stores but they didn't fit. 2 years ago I was at a friend's house swimming. I put my new swim suit on and the seems exploded the seconde I bent over. I just feel so bad. Please help me. I need all the help and comments I can get.

Everybody: I am sorta disapointed in this group of people that are on this board. I was here when it all started and people truly wanted to lose weight the right way. Not a quick fix like Anorexia, bulimia or just eating a scoop of rice a day. It has been 6 months since I started to lose weight. I have lost about 12lbs. But while I was losing that weight, I realized something more important, if you pay attention to your body you can learn a lot about yourself and it is VERY empowering. If you are shallow enough to think that you need to have to fit in a size one and won't eat until you do even if your a size 13. I feel sorry for you. Don't get me wrong, I still want to lose weight like everyone else here, but not at the cost of my own life. If eating an apple a day is your thing then go ahead, But remember that when your 60 or 70 and can hardly walk because you didn't get enough calcium ... (view more)

Hey, I've studied alot on Anorexia and Bulimia. I just wanted to tell you guys a little about it, for those that are thinking about it or have it. Starving to death is NOT pretty, it is an UGLY and painful death. Starved bodies ache all the time, the skin bruises, the muscles cramp and deteriorate, the brain slows and slurs. (There is nothing glamorous about that), the bones splinter, hurt and break. The body is constantly weak and cant sleep restfully (why? because your body thinks it needs to stay up and find food.) the mouth dries, the eyes fog (some ppl will go blind from starving), the heart beats hard and painfully, and there can be many scary moments prior to actual death where the body feels so sick and like it's dying (Because it is). Only a doctor can tell the amount of damage and decay that has already occured inside of you. But dont lie to yourself that you cant die or you... (view more)

I've been reading a couple posts about binging and purging..and guys just DON'T DO IT. It's so bad for your body AND your mind. My friend was bulimic for 2 years and started doing it at 10 years old. She is very unhealthy and because she is still recovering she can't do alot of things because her bones are weak. Bulimia is not the answer guys! You don't have to make yourself throw up to be thin! Like they say, nothing comes easy. Weight loss is a long process and if you work at it you'll succeed. Not to mention binging and purging will make you sad and depressed. But eating healthy and exercising will make you happy. And make sure that if you know someone who has an Eating Disorder you talk to them. Or if you think YOU have one, talk to your parents and get some counselling QUICK! EDs can destroy your life. They nearly destroyed one of my best friends. Good luck everyone...

My name is Samantha and i did a thing on this before, but i never put my hight or weight on there. I also didn't talk much about myself. I am 5'6'' and i weigh 153. I have lost about 23 pounds in the past month and a half or a little less. So i am happy about that. But i am wanting to loose more and more so i can be skinny. Well skinnier. Well i am on the no eating diet like is said before, and it's working for me, well for now at least. Well i guess that's all about me. GOOD LUCK ALL OF YOU.

~*!THIS IS 4 CRYSTAL! THE GIRL WHO HAS AN APPLE A DAY:o)!*~I was just wondering if that's all you eat, just an apple and drink water or pop? Does it work? How much weight do you lose a week? I'm *so* desperate 2 find a way to lose 20 lbs. or more b4 August 28th! I'm lost 45 lbs. so far but I need a quicker way to lose more than what I usually lose which is about 10 lbs. a month! I was on slim fast but it did the exact opposite for me! I gained a few lbs. instead of losing them! UGH! Ok so Crystal or anybody else who has any tips (I know most of them, exercising, drinking water, blah blah blah but like different ones) either reply here or e-mail me @ baby_blu_lightning_grl_808@yahoo.com! Thanks! Courtney:O)

Hey guys. I went to basketball camp all week and it was really fun. Because of that and WW I lost a total of 6 pounds in 2 weeks. That brings me to 17 or 18 pounds lost! My birthday is coming up in a few days, and what could be a better present then being 20 pounds lighter? I'm going to basketball camp again at the end of august. YAY! It felt so great there. Because I had been working out before that, it was fun and not very tiring! I am now 5 foot 10 or so and 182 pounds. My BMI is lower...I've got 20 more pounds to go. I can't wait to go back to school and everyone will be surprised! :) Good luck with you all.

Does anyone else think that some stores should have bigger sizes and some brands should not make only "tiny" clothes? That's what makes me really mad! I may not be a twig but that doesn't mean I don't like to dress nice!!
