    Where do I start...well, I'm 34 years old and have struggled with my weight my whole life. As a child I was overweight which led to obesity. As an adult, I slimmed down and maintained a healthy body weight throughout most of my twentys. A few years and two kids later, and I'm the biggest I have ever been at over 300lbs - even seeing that number written on the screen makes me feel hopeless. I'm an...

It sounds trivial until it is understood that when I started to lose weight I was wearing a size52 waist size pair of pants. That means I have losy eight inches off of my waist. I wonder what eight inches of fat looks...

    Hi guys!It's my first post on a support group - I've found the courage to do it because I've decided to move on with my life and to stop feeling sorry for myself. I've been overweight for a long time and I'm tired of the way people look at me... My goal is to lose 100 lbs. I’m tracking my diet on an app called Foodvisor and it has helped me lose 15 pounds so far. I really recommend it if you...

I have posted earlier this year that I was looking for support on daily strength. So if you are reading this and want support I am willing to give that to you. All I ask is for you to do the same for me in return. Well let me know if this is...

    Hi everyone. I have struggled with being overweight my whole life. Fad diets, diet pills, counting calories and/or fat grams, damn near starving myself-- I've tried it all. I was feeling 100% uncomfortable and depressed when I started a new program in January.It's called shred10 and its 10 days of shredding bad habits, and creating new healthy ones. Since then, I've done 6 shreds, and I have so...

    Yesterday, I weighed myself for the first time in months & it read 242lbs. This is the heaviest I have been in my whole entire life. I went to a clinic to lose weight about two years ago and I was around my high school weight at 188. I felt so good physically and emotionally. However, the clinic closed down because it turned out everyone was gaining their weight back and then some [ie. Me]. I...
