I'm a 35 year old nursing student. Recently married to a wonderful supportive and accepting man. I have been fat all my life. Every year I just keep getting bigger and bigger. I'm now at my heaviest weight ever. 228#. I'm only 4'11'' and I really just can't carry all this weight around anymore. I'm starting to develop health problems and I'm getting scared. I hope by joining a group where other people really understand where I'm coming from will help me and keep my on the right tract.

I am a 32 year old man who has let my body get waaaay out of shape. I am currently 260 lbs.

well i'm 21 from ny. I'm a [lifelong] vegetarian. I have hashimoto's thyroiditis which means my metabolism is super slow. I take synthroid and cytomel for that. I also suffer from depression, adhd and a metabolic disorder that I was born with. Yay. I recently was on the path to anorexia, consuming 900 calories or less a day, and during the last few weeks I've been off of that..but i feel like its important I start that up again, cause I lsot weight while doing that. I went from265-270 to 247 in about a month and a 1/2 or so. I despise transfat and high fructose corn syrup, that is a major reason I lost weight because I just stopped myself from consuming it. But over the past week or so i've been drinking a can or 2 of soda a day, probably cause I can't get my hands on iced tea mix [whcih has sugar, not HFCS], but that stops today. I don't want that crap polluting my body. I feel week and sluggish because of it. and i truly do hate it. I prefered keeping myself pure, and so pure I shall. hopefulyl i haven't hurt myself too much in the last 2 weeks or so.

I am 22 and just got engaged to the most wonderful man. I have always been big but have never really known what to do. I had the bypass in March of 04 and lost 95 pounds and have gained about 25-30 back. I hate myself so much. I was doing really good with my wait loss until I went off to college...then I began to go out and eat with friends and my boyfriend until I just started gaining again. I don't know what to do anymore. I don't want to be a skinny person...I just want to be healthy and not worry about everything anymore. I just finished college and am about to start my first job. I am an elementary teacher and will be teaching 14 first graders! I am so excited but being large makes it difficult to keep up with 14 six year olds! I am about 280 right now, possibly a little more. I don't even know if I have a paticular goal I want to reach other than just to feel good and be content with myself. I guess my goal would be able to go wedding dress shopping and not dread it. I so dread the thought of trying on dresses because I know how HUGE I am!! I just want to look like a normal 22 year old! I want to run and jump into my finaces arms and not worry about anything! I want to go to a store and buy clothes and not try them on at the store because I already know they will fit. Numbers aren't really important to me...but I know I want to be under 199!!! It has been years and I am very much so looking forward to that. I would just like some help....words on encouragement....ideas that might help or someone to get on to me when I eat something I know I shouldn't! I just want to be happy with myself and I honestly think with some help I can do it!
