Ht. 5'10", Start: 200 lb, Today: 323.4 lb, Goal: 160 lb - When I was thirteen, I lost a bunch of weight and stayed that way throughout high school, and it was awesome. But, when I got to college, I couldn’t stop gaining weight. The heaviest I’d ever been was in 8th grade, when I was 260 pounds, but now, the last time I got on the scale it said I was 323.4 pounds! I really am trying to lose weight, but college is so stressful, and whenever someone mentions my weight gain, it just makes me depressed so that I eat more. It doesn’t help that fast food is so cheap too, that’s really all I eat now. Going back home for holidays always makes me so nervous, because I’m always fatter than I was the last time. My family all look at me weird, and I can’t stand it. I also hate, hate how out of shape being this fat makes me. One time, I was late for my class because the elevator was out of order and I had to take the stairs, my class was on the third floor. I remember feeling like I was going to be sick when I finally arrived, and everyone was looking at me as I sat down, because of how sweaty and exhausted I was. That was around fifty pounds ago though, and now I can barely stand for more than 5 minutes without my legs hurting, and I’m always out of breath when I arrive for class. Wearing a mask doesn’t help either. Now, all I can wear out is sweatpants and old shirts, because they’re the only clothes that fit me and I can’t afford to keep buying new clothes every month as I keep gaining. I don’t know when this is gonna end, but I hate being fat.
