Ht. 5'7", Start: 215 lb, Today: 210 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hi everyone. I have finally decided to loose some weight. I am obese. It feels so weird to type that. I am fat. I feel like we need to be able to accept that fact before we can work on actually loosing weight. I used to be so concerned if people could see how big I was. Who was I kidding? I am over 200 lbs. Obviously everyone can tell that I am fat. Who cares if you can tell I have a big belly. I am becoming more comfortable with my weight by admitting that I am obese and I need to do something about it. I need to stop eating so much and I need to stop sucking my stomach in all the time. I need to accept the body that I have and if I can't I should loose weight and not try to hide that with my clothes and my sucking my stomach in. I need to stop eating so much and snacking all the time and I really need to start exercising. I can bearly run because I am so big! I have already lost 5 pounds! If you have any suggestions for me let me know!

I cannot button any of my pants over my belly. If I do the buttons look like they are about to pop. I cannot wear a large button down shirt because if the size of my belly.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 185 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI: 33), Goal: 135 lb - I hate the strechmarks on my stomach, arms, and legs. Although I weigh alot, alot of it is in my breasts. 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!
