Hello. I am 23 years old, 5'1 and 205
pounds. Disgusting, I know. Growing up I was always a little overweight but since I started being anemic, I gained much more weight then I ever had. I don't overeat, in fact I only eat about 2 normal meals a day. I dont feel or look like I weigh that much but the scales don't lie. I have crashed dieted, did the Atkins thing, but the essential ingredient that always seemed to be missing was the right
kind of motivation. I was always dieting because of what other
people thought and how they would percieve me. Now, I just want to feel and look healthy and be able to run around with my little brother without getting tired. I've had enough and I refuse to allow myself to get any bigger.
After looking online and seriously considering many plans, I have decided to go with the low (bad) carb, low saturated fats approach along with excersise. I guess I am joining these forums because being able to talk with other people that are going through the same thing as me is wonderful. All of my family is skinny and can eat anything.
I could really use the support from someone who actually understands.
: I don't want to cry myself to sleep anymore because I hate the way clothes look on me. I feel like a thin person trapped in a overweight persons body and I just want out.
Thanks for reading this.
Oh, I'm not beginning this until after Thanksgiving because a Thanksgiving with no carbs is like.... Chocolate Milk without the chocolate. The whole point is gone! hehe. I won't overdo it though.
