Angry want to introduce msyelf


now that i'm here, i'm not sure what to write actually. well, i'm 18 years old (19 on april 18th!!!!! ), I'm around 5'5, and I weigh between 225 - 230 pounds it's not good.

i first went on a diet when i was around 10 years old. that's pretty bad, eh? I've been going up and down ever since. My lowest in 5 years has been 150. I am at my heighest weight ever, and it terrifies me. I'm not even twenty! In total, these last 6 - 7 years, I have probably lost at least 200 pounds, but i've always bounced back, and now I'm faced with my massive physique.

My long term goal is 141 pounds (that's according to a test I did at a gym, which took into consideration my height, muscle mass, fat percentage, etc.) I've always wanted to be at 120 - but you know, right now, 141 sounds excellent and i just want to be healthy, happy, and feel good about myself.

Right now, I want to get started. I drink plenty of water, I've planned my day so that I get 25 minutes one way (twice/day) walking, and I must focus some of my energies on eating well.

I am looking foward to the entire journey - because with each day that I commit myself, I will be that much healthier, that much thinner, and so much happier.

I'll be going off to university next september, I want to be ready for that. I want to feel confident, proud of my physical self, want to feel attractive. I'm nearly 19, and i've never once been on a date. Not that there's a time frame for relationships, but I've spent life eating away my time in attempt to cope, and i don't want to do that anymore.

i want to replace food, with people. feel joy instead of pain,
contribution rather than loneliness, and hope above despair.

I'll check by here 1-2 times a week, as I can't on a more frequent basis right now, but in the meanwhile, I will be keeping up with my goals. I've realized that I deserve to feel good about myself.

I hope to meet everyone and would love to talk to all of you.

in the meantime, take good care of yourselves!

hi there i'm 6'0 and just after my 20th bday i was 322lb now 21 and 4 months and 230lb. don't worry about dating i go tmy first date when i was 19. the best investment for me to shed weight cost me 6 thats about $4. a skipping rope (jump rope) remember being a kid and jumping the rope. well its amazing. cheap and best of all you can stand in your yard or garage and do it without anyone seeing you. i tried jogging and got really self conscious about peole watching me. i once read somewhere that 10 mins of skipping non stop burns the same amount of calories as a halfhour run. i started and could do about 1 min and i was knackered now i'm up to 5x2min rounds with 30sec rest between. give it ago
To infinity and beyond!
