The other day I went shopping for bras thinking I was a 36 dd but then they measured me and said I'm a 36 e. Then the lady said sorry we don't carry your size the plus store is up stairs. I felt humiliated. I want to lose weight

Ht. 5'3", Start: 134 lb, Today: 292 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Ugh. I'm going in the wrong direction. My Mom sat me down and had a talk with me about my weight. I've put on some more weight since I last posted. I still dont really want to lose weight, but my Mom says its getting out of control. With the way I've been putting on weight, I'm going to break 300 lbs in no time. Ive never gotten this heavy before. The only pants i can wear anymore are my sweat pants. I can button on pair of jeans but barely and my stomach hangs out over them. I used to be able to tuck my stomach into my jeans, now I can barely fasten them beneath my stomach. I don't know what happened! I need to try to start losing weight, but I have no willpower. Once I start eating I just keep going even once I start feeling sick! I have a boyfriend and the most embarrassing thing happened. My bf went to put his arms around my waist from behind, and he... (view more)

Ht. 6'0", Start: 225 lb, Today: 220 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 170 lb - YOU GUYS. I used to come on this website ALL THE TIME when I was in middle school. Seriously, if you go back in the Pre-Teen boards and search my name, tons of posts from me will come up. I just spent the past 20 minutes reading them over, and I'm pretty disappointed and sad with myself. Little Julia wasn't happy and wanted to change her life.. change the way she saw herself and the way others saw her as well. I feel the same way 5 years later. This is a huge wake up call. 5 years ago when I was worried about looking "good" for my first day of middle school, it seemed like the most important thing to me. Now in a month and a half I'll be going to my first day of senior year. I still have the same mindset as a pubescent, wheezing 13 year old. I'm still insecure, and I still want to lose a significant amount of weight. Of course I fell off... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 169 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - Hey Everyone,
I am DONE being overweight. I've struggled with weight my ENTIRE life, I seriously cannot remember a time in a life when I was comfortable with my body. I went shopping the other day and there were two mirrors in the dressing room, so I saw EVERYTHING. I saw the folds on my back, I saw all the unsightly buldges and lumps. I start college in August (6 weeks!) I know I will not even be close to my goal by then, but I'm hoping to lost at least 8-10 pounds in 6 weeks, is that do-able? I want to feel pretty, confident, and really take control of my life. I've been to this site before, but I am DETERMINED to stick to it this time! Please help me.
