Default Just another fat chick

Hey there!
For the second time in my life I'm at my highest weight and it sucks, especially since I lost almost 50 lbs before gaining back everything. I'm also afraid that if I don't make the appropriate changes, I'll gain even more and that just can't happen. I'm unhappy with my outward appearance as it is and feeling ugly isn't really helping when you're already feeling insecure, unloved and boring.

I know this sounds not very appealing but I wanted to tell it as it is right now - me losing weight will not be the only thing changing in my life so I hope I'll sound more optimistic sooner rather than later.

My goal weight isn't set in stone because I have absolutely no idea what I can achieve realistically - I'd rather be a bit chubby than have loose skin.

I'm glad I found this site, there seem to be a lot of supportive people and I'm looking forward to getting to know at least a few of you better.
Sorry for any mistakes, English isn't my first language, I see this as a great chance to improve it.

Welcome!!! Start out with a small goal first, figure out what your weight loss method will be and jump onto some of the challenge threads. It's always easier when you find a group that is working on similar goals, or have other things in common. This is a very supportive community and we all wish each other the best! Good luck on your journey! (Your English is fine, by the way!)
Highest weight 245 lbs.

If I can see it...I can be it!

Hi Erinnya! Many of us have had the same kinds of feelings that you have, so we understand. And many of us have lost weight only to regain it, so you are not alone there either. You will find lots of support here, so browse the forums and get involved! Glad to have you! Good luck!

P.S. I would never have known that English isn't your first language if you hadn't told us!
Current Attempt (Slow Carb Diet, started July 19, 2013) <> Previous Attempt (Calorie-Counting, 2009)

= 10 lbs lost; = 5 lbs lost:
1. 196 lbs = "Overweight" BMI of 29.8 MET GOAL!!
2. 178 lbs = Lowest Weight in 13 years, BMI of 27.1 MET GOAL!!
3. 164 lbs = "Normal Weight" BMI of 24.9
4. 145 lbs = Goal Weight BMI of 22.0
Stay between 145 lbs and 155 lbs

S/C/G: Nearing the home stretch


You can do this!
Back in August 2013, I convinced myself to give my plan a shot until October 31, 2013. I told myself then that, when that date came, I would be grateful I had committed myself to losing weight. Sure enough, when October 31, 2013 came, I was deeply grateful and pleased with my progress. It's been 19 months and over 115 lbs lost, and I remain deeply grateful every day. There are no words to explain how worth it the hard work is.
Reached onederland 31.12.2013!
Became 'overweight' (BMI of 29.7) on July 29, 2014!

I'm also not really that hot about losing more than 175 because of the skin issue, so I get it.

Good luck!

Hey, Erinnya! I'm just getting started too.
My whole goal for tomorrow is just to drink a lot more water, especially when I feel like hopping off my food plan and into a plate of toast.
Baby steps.
Good luck, you can do this.
