hey, its me john again. SOMEONE help! I have an eating problem i think. Tongiht i was at wendy's, and i gourged, and I think I'm over 230 now. I can't help it, but ive gotten bigger. I have admitted ot myself that i have an eating problem. I just go for it, i eat and eat, and then eat some more. And even when im full, ill plop on the couch, and eat more. I can't stop, im ballooning up, ive noticed my body has changed in a matter of 3 days. My stomach is sliding down and out, and my love handles are growing. I'm just husky now, and i get worn out to simple stuff, like jogging upstairs to downstairs. Can anyone suggest an idea on how to just kick my eating habits? I'm ballooning up!

Start: 206 lb, Today: 197.4 lb - Hi my name is Dawn and I went on a diet before. I weighed 206lb. I lost 54 pounds and was feeling great until I started to eat all over again. I weighed 153 and now i'm back to 197.4 and i'm so depressed. I have asthma, sleep apnea, and bulimia nervosa. I can't breath in deep or it hurts, and I take all kinds of medicine because I gained so much weight so fast ! Please help me. I've been looking into diet pills and fasting. E-mail me at Dawn.Sousa@attbi.com Thank You !!

Ht. 5'2", Today: 154 lb (BMI %tile: 95) - Hi, my name is Louise. I'm 5'2 and about 154 pounds. I've been overweight since I was about 8. It is making me so unhappy! The worst thing is the comments that people make especially my mum. She calls me names and teases me about my weight all the time. It hurts so much and its like I'm always waiting for the next critisism. Like today when she dropped me and two friends off at school she said that in future I should walk cos I'm getting too fat. Last weekend she was shouting at me for not helping enough in the house and she called me a "big fat thing". She is always telling people I am fat in front of me and she calls me dumpy. My dad tells me I have no personality and no sense of humor. I feel so self consious at school and I hate PE (getting changed). I only have a few friends. I think my mum hates me. I have never felt close to her. We are very different in every way... (view more)

Start: 180 lb - Hi, I am 14 and the last time I weighed myself I was 180lbs. (this was 3 months ago and my friend, her dad, and I were at the gym.) I almost cried when I learned i was heavier than her dad. Anyway, ever since then, I've been struggling to lose the weight. I never realized I was so heavy, because I can shop and fit into "normal" clothes at places like Wet Seal and Forever 21. I think I have lost some weight since then, but the thing I'm struggling with most is the food I eat. I cannot control what I eat, like just today, I woke up and ate 4 pieces of toast. Not more then an hour and a half later, my sister (who is skinny) had McDonald's and I made myself some french fries (bcause she had some and i WANTED some.)Then I ate a bowl of cereal. It's weird cause I know what I'm doing, but I say to myself "who cares I'm still gonna be fat anyway" but I don't WANT to be this... (view more)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 136 lb, Today: 200 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - I've always been an average sized child, and my weight's never really bothered me until recently. I had to go to the docters for a general check up every 6 months, where he measured my height and my weight. I've stayed the same 5'6" for six months but have shot from 136lbs to almost 198lbs. That was 2 weeks ago and since then, i've put on 2lbs making me 200bls and i've really started to noticed my stomach being bigger than it was before and last night my friend told me she thought i'd been putting on weight a lot recently. I find it difficult to fit into jeans and stuff now aswell so i've decided to do something about my weight problem but i don't know where to start.

My thoughts on weight...let me think- too many! geez...i feel as if it is an endless road to losing weight. the only way you can get any attention from guys is to be a size 0 and that really makes me mad!!! i hope to lose weight- not for everyone else...but for me!
