From Rachel, Age 19
Ht. 5'3", Start: 195 lb, Today: 309 lb, Goal: 135 lb - Hi, I'm Rachel. I hate the word "fat" and had always claimed to everyone I wasn't fat, just big-boned because I was too scared to face the truth. I really have gotten fat. I hadn't weighed myself for several years until 2 days ago, and was startled to see the weight I've gained! I eat whenever I am not occupied with something else, and lately this habit has become even worse. I am almost always eating something, usually fast food. After learning about my startling weight gain, 195 to 309, I really looked myself. I barely noticed how large my stomach has become. I can no longer fit in most chairs, and have to purchase 2 airline tickets because I cant fit in a single seat. A few weeks ago I was flying to see my grandparents, and it was so so embarrassing. I tried to fit myself into one seat, but I just couldn't! The button on my jeans (which, apparently, are too small now thanks to my quickly growing stomach) kept coming undone as I tried to force myself into the seat, and I kept bumping into the people around me. My legs and stomach are the worst, I have stretch marks and rolls everywhere. I know I need to lose weight, but the food always looks so good! I can't stop eating, it's an addiction. I can barely find clothes that fit now, please help me stop before I get any bigger!
