I just came back from vacation. I gained a lot of weight. Everyday it was restruant after restruant, buffet after buffet. I couldnt control myself, the food was so good. I got so much fatter. My body swelled up. I have a huge belly with flab all over the rest of my body. The clothes i had a home felt tighter then normal. Along with my body growing bigger my appetite grew along with it. I find myself constantly snacking , even after i eat my meals. I cant control it. i dont know if im hungry or its just a craving for fatty food. i take swimming lessons but they dont start for a few weeks and i know im going to be embarrassed because of all the weight i gained over the summer. PLEASE HELP!

Today: 175 lb - hey guys I havent been doing to good i am at 175 grrrrrrr i am trying to get back in the routine but once i stopped it is so hard to start again. Well Alexis it looks like u won. I hope to god not cuz i couldnt live with it. I am going to eat hardly anything at school so i dont waste my money like that and then i am gonna really work hard in gym to do everything to my ability. I hate school cuz thats when i eat junk from fending machines. So I will not eat a lot of junk. I will tell myself do I really need that or is it something to please me. maybe will have watermelon or another fruit at lunch. Then either in the morning before school i will run or when i get home when ever I find time. Well peace out and please rply to my messages.

Start: 150 lb, Today: 172 lb - Hi! Ok, this is a long one so bare with me--I weighed myself about 6 days ago, and I was 150lbs, today I weighed myself, and I'm 172lbs. I cannot beleive I gained so much weight in that amount of time! About 2-3 days ago, I kinda realized I was gaining weight, but I never knew it was so much!! I was sitting down to dinner with my family, half way through eatting, 2 of my buttons popped off my shirt!! My whole family was in fits of laughing! My mom said, Oh My God your blowing up like a balloon, then my bro poked me and said, lets pop the balloon. That really hurt me! And then yesterday was one of the most embarrising days of my life! I was in a shop trying these new pants(jeans). When I went to close the button, it wouldn't close and I kept trying and trying and eventually it broke! I had to go up to the counter and pay for them! Everyone is noticing I've gained alot of weight and I'm gettin things said to me like Wow what happened and did you eat the supermarket! Please please PLEASE reply to me and give me your thoughts and advice, thanks. xox

I can't stand it! I love to go shopping, but when I have to try on the clothes in teh dressing room, and then hunt for a bigger size, I smile towards my mom, but on the inside I'm beating myself up about my weight! ANd when I find the perfect pants, but they don't have my size, that makes me hate myself even more! But, I'm DETERMINED to lose that weight!!!

Ht. 5'2", Today: 199 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - I recently started trying to lose weight but I am so discouraged, it is such a let down when you have tried for a month to lose weight and when you go to the scale the next week you have gained more back! I am not afraid to say that I am 199lbs and only 5'2'' but I wish I was half that size, it is so hard to lose weight I really need support! Can someone help me out?
