Ht. 5'9", Start: 203 lb, Today: 218 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 175 lb - Hi Everyone,
I'm new here, but I've been trying to lose weight for years. It's never really bothered me, but those around me have commented on it a lot. I started trying to lose weight going daily to the gym and eating healthier foods, but I keep getting fatter because even though I'm eating those healthier foods i still sneak the cookies and other junk but I know I'm not fooling anyone. Sometimes I think whatever, I'll just get fat I dont care, I can still find a boyfriend who will like me even though I'm fat. I dont know should I just give up I dont know what else to do.

I know what you mean Jake. Thanksgiving is over but I don't even wanna get on the scale because I totally lost control and ate big time, same thing yesterday. There's still leftovers today I'm planning to eat. It's like I'm the only one who cares about losing weight and I get fired up to cut back but all that delicious food is there and someone's telling me "a little bit won't hurt" or "a big guy like you is supposed to have a big appetite" amd I can't help it.
