Start: 190 lb, Today: 140 lb - I am really agitated. I lost about 65 lbs, and then the holiday season shot me down. practically ever since november i have been eating awfully. i used to watch everything i ate, and kept it low on the carbs and calories but now i just binge eat..so i WAS 125 in Nov...but i checked today and now i have gained back a total of 15 lbs (140) i still exercise a lot and drink plenty of water...but i just can't control my eating.why do we have stupid cravings? i seriously wish i could shut off my brain sometimes. well if anyone has my problem or can help me figure out something lemme know. thanks.

Ht. 6'3", Today: 215 lb (BMI %tile: 93) - I used to be 6'2" 270. and now im 6'3", 215. it may not sound like much but i look at my self in the mirror and i got big jelly rolls and flabby arms.I tried the diet i did over the summer to lose weight, but its hard to keep going for more than a week. I tried working out for 3 months but saw no results. so mainly what im getting at is i need the fastest way to lose weight imaginable, ill do anything i can to get lean( even going anerexic.) so if anyone has an extreme way to lose weight as fast as possible, plz let me know. thanks.

Ht. 5'9", Start: 150 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI %tile: 90) - I would just like to say that society is so cruel to people who don't have perfect bodies. I have just started college, and no body will talk to me or sit next to me. Girls are ok but guys just ignore me and pretend I dont exist, they are such pigs. I've only been two days, but this is the way I feel right now. When I used to be 150lb everyone was always so nice to me, now i'm 185 and I feel like I dont exist. Do you guys even think that 5'9 185 is even really that big? I mean I know im overweight but its not like im 500 pounds or something so why are people so mean!!??!!
