S/C/G: 154 lbs/151.5 lbs/144 lbs

Height: 5'4"

Default This is why I started.

I want to be able to stand up straight and walk around - not shuffle with my shoulders up, always hiding something, apologetic for my existence.

I want to wear a bikini.

I want to wear fitted dresses.

I want to like myself naked.

I want to just be able to throw on anything to wear, knowing it will sit right, rather than having the clothes I only wear at home because "they make me look fatter."

I want to shake off this insecurity.

I want confidence.

I want to be happy.

I want to lay on my side and not have a sack of fat falling alongside me.

I want to enjoy nights out.

I want to look good in underwear and a bra.

I want to be every bit as attractive as I consider my friends to be.

I want to make him want me.

I want to force them to see I'm more than they ever thought or made of me.

I want to move on.

I want to love myself.



These are much bigger than any cake, tiffin square, biscuit, cookie, pizza, chips, chocolate, burger, coke, fries or any kind of food.

Remember this.

Now, stop crying over 3 biscuits.

You slipped up. So what?

It's a day, and days pass.

Get your runners on. Get your a|ss in the living room and zumba like your weigh in is tomorrow

and friggin smile.

You are more able than you think. Believe it.

So, it's not the best week, and you won't have lost as much as you'd hoped, but without a doubt, if you give up, you sure as h|ell will NEVER lose any more.

Pick yourself up.

Get back in.

Don't let this drag on any further.

Lose it. You can do it.

Persevere and be strong.

You're thicker, more stubborn and more headstrong than this.

You deserve this. Just earn it.

You are loved and you will succeed.

NEVER. GIVE. UP.



With a semblence of love from I to Me.

For all the s|hitty days ahead.

I'm mostly a lurker, but I had to comment on this. THANK YOU!!!! I've gotten completely off track and gained back several pounds. My jeans don't fit and I'm having trouble even caring. I'm going to print this off and read it every time I want to give up and dive into the Nutella.

Oh my god.. I didn't think it would be so motivational! I'm so happy it's made you feel like that. I've just had the most horrible day, but seriously, replies like these really perk me up.

These forums are the bomb.. Losing weight is so much harder on your own. You need others, and I, need to write letters to myself haha.

I honestly, really do hope that this works for you and that you see results.

Best of luck to you, and to absolutely everyone who reads this.

GO TEAM.

It's my biggest problem. I'm so scared of developing a hump in my back. I'm just constantly so aware of myself, and not in a vain way - just pure insecurity.

The only way I'll ever combat it, is to get rid of what I'm trying to hide.

Best of luck to you!

Hopefully we'll cross paths some day, with heads held high instead of shrugged shoulders

I love the feeling of wearing shorts and they don't ride up! I also love it when my collar bones make an appearance. I'm looking forward to that!
