brooke_eli4:38am: about me
Things I hate about myself. My flappy fat belly and how it moves every time I move.
my flappy hands and how the look look like a normal persons legs.
my legs and how huge and horrible the look. I hate how I can't wear shots or skirts because it looks like I'm abusing my legs, fat as they might be.
I hate how whenever I look in the mirror, the person I see is not my, its never me, won't ever be me. how can I change that girl.
on a level I know that girl in the mirror, but sometime I think I dont. I know she's lonely, oh so lonely, but to the rest of the world she portrays not and happiness. she loves, she's capable of loving, at least she believes she is able to loving.
She has feeling, deep emotions, but she hide them in them behind the shell of her fatness. She hides behind food, junk food. chocolate, icecream, crisps biscuits, the all make her feel better for about two minutes after she ears them. then she feels dissapointment in her self, how could I do this? How could she let her self down. the more she is disappointed, the more she she wants to eat. its a circle, it goes in and on and on. it can't be broken. she doesn't know how ti break the circle. but she knows she is not trapped, she knows she has to break the circle, its killing her, but she doesnt know, she's trying but the circle can be overwhelming.
she is just a lonely sad girl, she needs to ne lived but she doesn't know how to handle kove when she gets it. She's her only hope out of thus, she knows it, nobody can walk the path for get, she can do, all she needs us a little faith and a luttle hope, she is not lost, she is confused, she will find her way, not today, not tomorrow, but she will find her way.

Better luck for Friday...

Hello! I'm Ixxi, and I'm new in town, metaphorically...just got here after deciding that it's about time I got back to a healthier way of life.

My dear boyfriend, who is a naturally thin guy with a magical metabolism, has THE worst diet ever and I've allowed his eating to influence mine over the last year and a bit that we've lived together. Sadly, in that time, I've also had major spinal surgery and was out of exercising action for about six months... and consequently gained ten or so of the kilos I worked so hard to lose in 2009. I lost a total of 26kg then and before that, in 2004, I shed 38kg, all with healthy eating and regular exercise! I was once 139kg... and from 101kg I got down to 85kg... now I think I'm back up around 98kg and quite distraught about it... D:

I'm an utter carboholic, which is terrible, since my metabolism turns it straight into fat... So, at the moment, I'm returning to my 90% vegetarian ways, eating paleo-style foods and practising fasting... exercise discipline to follow.

I'm four days in - I didn't start on Jan 1 because my brother was visiting and I didn't want to miss out on the social eating aspect, which is a recurrent theme for me, really!

Oh, and I won't be weighing myself often... mainly because I don't have any scales!

So far, so food... er, good, though!!

I'm here for support and to be supportive!

50lbsin5months10:37pm: Hello all [:
    I found this community while browsing, I was hoping to find somewhere where I could be supported and inspired by others. From the looks of it, I have found it. 

I figured I would tell a bit about myself before randomly launching into daily posts on food and etc..

 Due to my extreme lack of self-confidence, I go by the alias of Nerdgirl. I am 16 years old and weigh 210 lbs, I would like to lose 50lbs in 5 months (the inspiration for my username) so as to not only become healthier, but so as to be able to enjoy life more. I am currently on my fourth day of my diet, and it is more or less going well..

  I hope to share my journey with this community, and to make friends who I can support and who will support me.

Here's hoping for a good time in the community.

brooke_eli2:08pm: perceptions of yourself
I weighted myself today and amazingly I found that I don't weight as I thought I weighed - I mean I was at least 10 stones off the charts (I'm 10 stones lighter than I thought).
I remember once watching gok make overs and there were some women over estimating their weights.
I was just wondering what makes women male this common mistake? Is it like a coping mechanism so that when we actually weigh ourselves we are over hours that are not as fat as we thought? I know I had that sensation when I saw the scale.
What do everyone think?

bubblesnap3:17pm: Is anyone still here?

I've recently gained some weight again and feel uncomfortable. Not only are my clothes ill fitting, but I have a hard time getting comfortable enough to sleep and feels like the extra weight is constricting my lungs, making it hard to breathe. I'm 5'10" and think I weigh about 215 right now. I was at 180 1.5 years ago, :( then I met my boyfriend...

I'm calorie counting and really really hungry right now, like right this second! Any ideas on low calorie vegetarian-friendly filling food?

I've been using an app on my phone - calorie counter - which is making it super easy to track what I eat and how much I exercise.

Also if you just want to commiserate and say hi, that would be nice too :)

heather_marsh082:13pm: Facing my giant...
 ass. sorry for the language. I'm back again people! And this time, for good. Seriously. Here is a bit of an update on my life:

I got engaged! Yay! Evan and I have been engaged since March 6th, 2010. Our wedding date is set for May 21st, 2011. I purchased my wedding dress a few weeks ago...size 22 from David's Bridal...I'm hoping to HAVE to bring it in to be brought in a month before the wedding.

I've gained a crap-ton of weight...I've decided NOT to look back at my previous entries on here for my own sanity and guilt, maybe I will one day. Anywho...

I went on MediFast at the beginning of the summer and lost 20 pounds, and I've gained (roughly) ten of it back. I grew sick of it (literally, I couldn't stomach the food after a month), and from there on maintained the weight I had lost. Then I began Nutrisystem a few weeks ago, and failed miserably at that...so, now I'm just trying to figure out what I am going to do...I've decided that doing the pre-packaged meals isn't for me, and I need to accept that. So, if anyone has any suggestions for a good low-cal lifestyle change, please thrust your knowledge upon me! Seriously. I need help. Thank you! I'm excited to get my life back on track

viii_o8s12:35pm: hey guys,
So I haven't lost any weight since the 10 pound drop, probably because I've been stressing out about school and i'm anxious to finally go on my trip at the end of the month, BUT today I'm going to get back on track (2 weeks left to lose about 5 more pounds).. I hope all of you are doing well!
I recently stumbled upon Kelis's new album (yeah, I know, I never really thought anything of her after "milkshake" came out either) and her songs are great to workout too! My faves are:
Brave - Kelis
Home - Kelis
4th of July - Kelis

So.. I know this is coming out of nowhere but its been a huge part of my weightloss struggle. When I began to become serious about dropping the pounds it was because I wanted to look better than someone in my family that I get compared to a lot.. But then when I lost the first ten I started to really become comfortable with the way my body was. I know that ten pounds isnt anything dramatic, but it made enough of a difference that I now realize that I am who I fucking am.. No matter if I weigh 30 pounds heavier or lighter... It was basically all a reminder that what I am on the inside is going to count for how beautiful I am, and not just what I'm wearing or what I look like on the outside..

Anyways, Take care guys

reductilgirl9:43pm: New here
Hi everyone, I'm new here and I've created this journal specifically to write about my weight loss.
You can check out my journal for the story but to cut it short I've always had a weightloss problem which has centred around me having PCOS and an insulin resistance problem.

My doctor started me on reductil 5 days ago and I'm wondering if anyone else here is trying to lose weight using the same thing?
I have around 30kg to lose which is reallllly daunting for me. It's a little scary because I every other diet I've tried either nothing happens or I PUT ON weight. (crazy I know).

Anyway, anyone trying reductil or tried it? Would like to hear about your experiences.

viii_o8s12:49pm: finally
lost ten pounds :)  ... feels amazing! almost didn't think I could do it.... ten more to go before the end of this month!

2nd July 2010

viii_o8s1:34pm: Progress ..sort of
I lost 8 pounds so far! yay! I'm now 137lbs from 145lbs.
So I've been working out on the treadmill for about 45-60 minutes 5 days a week along with light weight lifting to tone up my arms which I do 3 times a week, and I've restricted my eating to the following: fruits, nuts, vegetables, chicken, eggs, and fish. NO MORE processed foods or beef for me for a very long time.. Especially if I want to lose about 15 more pounds by the end of this month!

Lately I've actually been pretty motivated! My good friend lost about 15 pounds and it really made me feel good about losing weight because I always feel constantly critisized by the people around me for being on a diet and losing the weight (I honestly feel like they want me to stay fat sometimes..), but having her around to talk to and eat healthy with makes things a bit easier.

Hope all you guys are staying motivated to lose the weight! Remember: first you make the committment, then the motivation and dedication will follow, but you must hold on to all three in order to acheive success.

viii_o8s9:35pm: Playlist?
Hey guys,
so I've been listening to the same few songs for the past two months and my workout has gotten very boring lately... Do you guys have any favourite songs that you warm up to? Or songs that pump you up while you're running or lifting weights?

viii_o8s12:22pm: Introduction
Hi everyone :)
So I'll start off by introducing myself and letting you guys know why I've come to this community, My name's Neena, I'm 19, and I've been making a serious attempt for the last few months to begin losing weight and eating healthier.. My whole life I've been an average size (meaning I've never been very overwieght, but I've never been thin and toned either) and although this never really bothered me in the past, in the last 2 years I have really been bothered by this.. The case use to be that I only wanted to lose weight to look thinner, but for the past month I've been working out (on a regular basis) and found that it really helped me to deal with stress, plus I really enjoyed going for runs outside. As of lately I have set a goal to lose 20 pounds by the month of August. I chose this time frame because I felt it was acheivable and because I will be going on a roadtrip on Aug 2nd to see family that I haven't seen in a while (this sounds terrible, but I really want to impress them). Although being healthy and impressing people is a great motivation, my biggest motivation is that I have been average my entire life (meaning: average grades, average style, average personality) and now finally I feel that it is my time to shine and be better than average.

I'm 5'4" and my current weight is 140lbs; I started off at the beginning of this month at 145lbs, and wasn't really losing weight because I hadn't changed my diet. Once I changed my diet, I lost that 5lbs in one week! Yeah! It's a big deal! Lol.. Still working hard to get at 120lbs though.

So there you have it, theres my introduction and I really hope to support you guys and get support back from you guys, because it really is tough doing this alone (especially when you feel like all your friends are able to eat anything without having to work out atleast once a week!).. Take care! Stay motivated!

genesis131611:01pm: Hey everyone..
I'm Jamie, just joined the community. I'm excited to give and receive all kinds of weight loss goodies on here. A little about me...

I'm 24, work full time and go to school every evening. Before three months ago, I wrote off diet and exercise because I didn't have the time to commit to it. Then I found myself at 186 lbs. I'm 5'6". Not only that, I was disgusted with myself. I didn't want to go anywhere or do anything. I live in Atlanta yet I would never go to a club.. hell, i wouldn't even go to bar. So anyhow, been complacent..  and single :( so i took a drastic step that II refer to as 'investing in myself'' and hired a personal trainer to get me started. I've been with him for 7 of the total 10 weeks that I paid for and I have learned a LOT. I've lost weight, sure.. I weigh 168 now but it's different then when I weighed 168 before. I FEEL like I weigh 150. However, it's a daily thing I have to do now and I'm still trying to accept that. That's why I am here, to keep it going strong. 

I just wanted to introduce myself, say hi, and let you all know that I am a chronic dieter as well as a chronic eater and I found something that works. It's not a magic pill or anything, its hard work..  but I can't keep it to myself. Here's the gist real quick:  eat only high quality food, NOTHING processed or boxed or the like (high quality food fills you up faster and you stay fuller longer). Eat 250 calories made up of 40 percent protein, 35 percent carb, and 25 fat..  every three to four hours, closer to 3 than 4. Drink a gallon of water a day (i struggle with this one), liquid multivitamin, omega 3-6-9 supplements..  I think that covers it. I paid $300 dollars to be told about this so take it or leave it, but there it is. :) I eat 5 times a day and lose weight every week. 

Let me know if any of you have any experience with this kind of eating and how its working for you, or not? :)   Yay for losing weight and falling back in love with yourself, its worth every drop of sweat!

fatesunderstudy11:41am: Being held accountable - gulp -

Happy Monday!

My name is Arlene, I am new to the community, and I feel like in some ways this must be what an AA meeting intro sounds like.."My name is Arlene, and I like to eat".  I can almost here you guys responding in my head, "Hi Arlene" LOL. 

I'm happy to be here, among other people that share some of my problems.  The reason I joined LJ was to open up a public blog/journal series where I could publish my current weight (gasp!) my goals and the journey between now and September 30th, the 5 month deadline that I have to loose 60 lbs, before I go wedding dress shopping.  My LJ username is fatesunderstudy.  Feel free to follow and leave comments galore, and most of all hold me accountable!

mardott11:31am: More, more...
I'm in a binge phase. I've already eaten all my allotted calories today and it's not even noon! Did the same yesterday, resulting in at least twice as many calories as I should have had. 

I suspect today will be a repeat. How do I stop myself?

purple_p10:50am: First time poster, long time lurker.
So, I am finding myself in a rut that makes me do BAD things. I am in the breakfast rut. Almost everyday I have an egg for breakfast in a low fat/low cal wrap. I am getting sick of this. When I get bored of a food I move on to my fav breakfast food in the whole world, doughnuts. I am looking for ideas for breakfast foods that are high protein, low fat and easy to make!

Thanks for any comments, ideas or death threats you can send my way!

nowornever37:01am: New Food Community
Hi everyone!

I've noticed that many of us question what to eat and are looking for ways to make healthy taste good.

Along those lines, I've created food_healthy where we'll be able to share recipes, talk food and give each other support in the process.

Take a moment to read the introductory post. Once you're done, join and let's talk food.

(I apologize for cross-posting like mad!)

(mods, if this post is beyond the rules of this community, please delete) :)

heather_marsh082:33pm: Well, I have the flu. Brilliant. On the bright side...

SW: 259
CW: 250.2 ...I weighed in a few days ago at 253...pretty sure only eating Saltines and drinking water and ginger ale have a lot to do with this loss, but hey, can't complain.
Total loss: 8.8 pounds

not bad =]

hopefully I can kick this flu bug though. I've missed two days of classes and work, not so good.
