18th-Apr-2010 02:17 am - Hi!!!
Hi, so I am Christy and 21.  This is the first time I am trying this and hoping that it works.. 

I can say that I am a lazy idiot who eats too much, but I have actually stopped eating as much as I have been.. which is saying a lot, because I have always just ate when ever I wanted.   I have been off soda for the past three almost four weeks...  I keep drinking powerade and OJ, if there is none of that around I drink water or put crystal light in the water and drink that.  The biggest I have ever been was 256lbs and I lost about 30lbs and am now at 236lbs, but the problem with that is I lost that doing nothing for two weeks and finally started getting more active this past week when my niece started t-ball.     With lack of funds it's not like I can buy the healthy healthy foods, but I try to eat a bunch of fruit and vegetables when my family buys it.. I particularly love carrots. 

I think that's it......

Hello!! I am Samantha.

I just joined after making this livejournal tonight, after going to the doctors today i realized im in serious need of an overhaul. I am at the highest weight i have ever been and that is 303.

i am 22 years old. it makes me sad to think about but i have decided i need to keep a blog and change my lifestyle.

So what i am going to do is switch over to a complete raw diet. with stipulations. i have already cut soda out of my life 2 years ago. i need to make friends with people i am avle to relate too.

I never really realized how bad my weight was until now.
Right at this very second.

I promised myself I would start exercising today - and so I did. The sad thing is (and this makes me really sad) - is that I only last 7minutes and 30 seconds until I was completely out of breath and my muscles ached. And that is only by walking. How is it that I can walk around the mall fine, at a park fine, through my house, to my car, through the subdivision fine ...... but the minute I step on a treadmill - I'm dead?

How sad is that? How the hell is someone supposed to lose weight if they can't last more than 7 minutes on a treadmill? What gets me is - I joined a gym around this time last year - and I did awesome (until I couldn't afford it anymore). I had a trainer that I met with once a month, who laid out my routines for me - and I was fine. 30 minutes of weight training and 30 minutes of cardio 3 days a week, and an hour of cardio 2 days a week - I lost 17lbs up until I had to quit. Then I gained it all back and now it seems as if I can't do anything anymore.

This seriously depresses me.

So I've thought - I want to give vegetarianism a try one more time, and be serious about this time.
No more soda.
No more sweet tea.
No more chips.
No more cookies.
No more fast food.

Food change is the easiest for me I think - but like I said - how is someone going to lose weight at 7 minutes a day on a treadmill?

So the batteries in my scale died.
Good thing I weighed myself yesterday.

So it's day one ..... I have a feeling today is going to be one of the worst days.

Weight: 330lbs.
B: 58"
W: 57"
H: 59"

This is going to suck. FML.

Hey all!

My name is Jess and I'm a sophomore in college. I decided to join this community to receive and offer support, as I've always struggled with my weight, and despite the fact that I've made some strides, I still want to go further.

Just a background: I was at my heaviest, 158 pounds I believe, when I was a freshman in high school (I'm 5'3"). I felt awful at the time- awful about myself, and just awful in general. Looking back on it, I was so unhealthy. I constantly experienced chest pains and felt like crap all the time. I had very little energy. I drank tons of soda every day, processed foods, fatty foods, tons of junk food... I ate way more than I should have. And had I continued on that path, I probably would be much heavier today. But finally I decided to just try dieting and eating healthier for a few weeks in the hopes that I could lose some weight and regain some self-esteem since I'd grown to really hate my body, the way I looked in clothes, the way I felt around my friends, etc.

Blah blah blah... and where I'm at now.Collapse )

Hello :]
I'm Heather and I'm 21 years old.

I've joined this community because I've always heard that having a support group is one of the best things you can do when you decide to lose weight. So I hope that I can gain support here. We're all here to become healthy and lose weight, right? Right now I've unfortunately reached my biggest ever. I'm 330 pounds. I never thought that I would get this big. I thought 260 pounds was bad enough .....

I'm a little confused as to how to go about this. Maybe more scared than confused. I used to always think that I could find an easy way out to losing weight - that the diet pills were magic, and that the exercise equipment would change me overnight. Sadly, anything worth obtaining is never easy. I believe that I have to get my mind right before I can get my body right - and its such a challenge. America has become the most overweight country ... You know how people always post success stories - about how there was something in their life that just triggered them to get up one day, bust their butt, and change their life. Why can't that happen to everyone? If we all had that "click", I'm sure we would be in a much happier place. The best thing I've ever heard - exercise is hard work that gets easier with time.

.......Here goes nothing.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to post an update of how I've been doing since I decided to make some changes in my lifestyle. I started incorporating my changes on the 22nd and I feel awesome. I've been eating far healthier, exercising regularly, and I've lost five pounds (though some of it was water weight) and my confidence and trust in myself has skyrocketed. I want to thank this community because holding myself accountable has always been my biggest problem. I typically do things in secret, but having people to share this part of my life with makes me take greater responsibility for my actions. I know it's still early, but I hope to continue this lifestyle after reaching my weight goal, I enjoy it very much. I hope everyone is doing well and I hope your goals are becoming clearer and closer.
