    Depression and losing weight..

    Hi all, I'm new to the group!I have been on a pretty strict diet and workout schedule for about a month now, and right when I thought I was doing well (lost four pounds) I fell off the wagon. Most of it was due to being sick and making excuses for myself. I live with family that do not eat well and do not really support my weight loss journey. Without getting into extremely long details, my...

    Weekly Weigh-In♥Jan 15-21♥Body & Brain

    This week’s topic is taking care of the body and brain.  They work together to change us either positively or not.  If we have fatigue or any kind of disorder, we can help change our body and brain situation.  A simple answer to doing this is through exercising however we are able.  One step at a time, we can stretch, do puzzles, brain activities, learn something new.  There is always hope...

    My 2017 Goal

    After graduation last year I went through a slump, I'm living at home again. Not that it's bad in and of itself... but I know what I'm capable of and have just been afraid to try to do it. I've lost weight before and lost it really quick. 30 lbs in 6 weeks. But I didn't make the lifestyle changes needed to keep it off. So now 5 years later I gained the weight back and added more to it too. But...

    Weekly Weigh-In ♥Jan 8-14♥Outside the Comfort Zone

    When’s the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?It's so comfy to stick with the same routines but I was invited to a seminar this weekend and had a blast chatting with our small group and sharing experiences.  I bumped into someone from years ago and made new friends too. Stepping out of our comfort zone is a great avenue for growth, learning something new, building self-confidence,...

    Hello All! Just wanted to drop in and say hello and happy new year! I joined the group with the hopes of getting (and giving) support and encouragement with this weight loss journey that I am on right now. I have fallen off the horse, gotten back on, fallen again and now trying to pick myself back up. It's sooooo hard.  I am doing Medifast and it's a struggle doing it alone. Hope to make some...

    Finding Motivation

    Hello, my name is Michelle and I'm new to this site. I'm looking for support in my weight loss journey because recently it has become a major struggle. To give some background I am a diabetic and as a teen I was a little heavy but not in terrible health. It was in college I lost someone close to me that I began emotional eating and got very out of control. In October of 2015 my doctor told me my...

    A happy experiment over dinner.....

    Ok, so I'm hoping this is the right group to post this in since it really covers two different ones (parenting and weightloss). Apologize if it isnt but i have to share. So, I have a very hard time getting my daughter to try vegetables (she was never exposed to them thanks to my mom) but tonight it was accomplished. :) I wanted to find a way to actually like veggies and fruit myself and ive...

    Introducing myself

    Hi, my name is Jessica! I am 18, a single mom, and probably the heaviest I have ever been. My weight as of my doctors appointment last week was 378lbs, which is actually down from before i moved out of my parents house (you can read more about life before move on my profile). Anyways, I guess part of me thought when I made the move out of my parents house things would magically fall into place....

    anyone else experiencing tiredness a lot?

    Is anyone else finding weight loss tiring? I feel like I have no mental energy. I've lost over 7 stone but now it's getting much slower and more tiring. I need to lose another 2 stone, but it's hard going!
