People always told me the same thing!!!

I know that losing over 100 lbs. seems almost impossible, but you wouldn't believe how easy it is once you have your mind set on doing it!!

When I had to go buy new work pants in a size 16 because the 14s were killing me they were so tight.

Hehe I've been told I carry my weight really well too.

As a bit of history, this is my second trip at 3FC.. last year, I went from 210 to 185 and then quit.

Well, I never really thought I put that weight back on... I mean, I knew I gained back a little, but I thought I really was maintaining. Then, one day when I was jeans shopping with my mother, I realized I could not fit into any size 14 jeans. I started crying in the dressing room... then promptly went back to VA, tried to work out for a week, then quit.

My moment of truth? I had a day off, and I started binging on "low-fat" chips right after boyfriend left for work. All of a sudden I stopped and said "What the **** am I doing?" I promptly put down the chips and got on the scale.... and had a heart attack. 200 lbs... not only was that higher than my STARTING weight the year before, but it was only 20 pounds away from my all-time highest weight (240 at age 16). Right then, I knew I just could not stand being overweight anymore.. and here I am!

I've been told many times that I carry my weight well also. People tell me I don't even look like I weigh 200. I've been told I weigh between 160-180. hah. Not true. I only share my real weight with people that I am close to. lol.

I guess, I am just tired of the stares, tired of being unhealthy, tired of my granny telling me I need to lose weight, and I want to look and feel great! I have been overweight since I was about 8 years old, and I think it's about time that I teach myself the proper way to eat, and to live.

I've wanted to lose weight for awhile, my original goal was 10 pounds by Christmas, but I had a few hiccups along the way. I think the first wake-up call was realizing I hadn't lost any weight since March in September and recently, having to have my gall bladder out...

I had just finished with Highschool and I was in a size 22 which we estimated that I was 205-210 pounds. That's when I realized I was too big. I couldn't find any cute clothes and seeing smaller people made me cry. I was always picked on in highschool.

That's when it happened to me that I had to lose my weight and get it off. I actually didn't start losing weight til 2003/2004

Yes, people have always told my that I carry weight well, and that most of my weight comes from my height! That's great and all , but I still have to buy big pants.
I guess I just got to the point where I always felt sluggish and tired. When I exercise and give my body the food it needs, I feel so much better.
Also, I want to have babies and be noticably pregnant, not sorta fat-sorta pregnant!

I agree with you here. I had a big scare when my cousin almost couldn't fit into her wedding gown. I was wondering if when that time ever came if I would have that same delima but I'm not speaking that on myself. I too want to be noticably pregnant and not have people wondering if I am or if i'm not.

i think the wakeup call for me was when everyone else i know became weight obsessed. i never have been altho i have always been fat. so i bought a scale, and it said 298. that freaked me out. ive been working weight watchers for a year now and when i do it, it works, and when im bad it doesnt. but im determined to lose the weight. the wierd thing is that im tall (5'9") and i usually wear a 20/22 but i carry my weight evenly that no one believes that i weigh as miuch as i do.

I was between 250-260 in high school (2002). I think I was 26-28? I can't remember, and really don't want to. LOL. I started to change my lifestyle in Jan 2003. I started walking more, switched to diet drinks. Also, I didn't eat as much because my lactose intolerance was real bad. Seemed like everything I ate made me sick. In that year I dropped down to 200-220 something like that, I didn't really measure how much time it took. Today, I still haven't gained back that weight. Now, I am going for the goal this year, counting calories, exercising a lot more, and watching my emotional eating..which I have been doing good so far since I joined this amazing community!

That's the same with me. There was probably a long time where I didn't look at the scale and I know I had to be over 300lbs but I didn't want to look at the scale at all. I ended up buying a scale 6 months down the road from that and saw I was 298 I ended up freaking out. My family ended up going to Oahu for vacation and I felt so ashamed I couldn't fit in the seat belt, it wouldn't clasp. If only there was an Inch or two more, so I threw on a big sweatshirt folded my arms around my waist and leaned over to look at my grandma's magazine, I was so embarrassed.

Oh, not fitting into seatbelts was the WORST!!! I remember going to an amusement park with a big group of friends. Actually, it was the first time that I met my husband's (boyfriend at the time) friends. We all went to get on this older roller coaster and I could barely fit into the seat. Then, I couldn't get the seatbelt to buckle. I had to get off because I couldn't fit. That was the absolute worst!

I NEVER thought I would have allowed myself to weight over 200 lbs. Never in a million years. I guess it just goes to show how far in denial I was that I let myself get 35 lbs over that. Bah...

I broke my ankle (like, pins and plates and screws broke). I had been trying to lose weight by exercise alone up to this point and ignoring the food issue all together. I then found myself alone and incapacitated and got so frustrated that I couldn't move. I ordered $30 worth of chinese food and declared when it was gone that I had had enough. I spent the next 4 days on my couch living off of diet pepsi and cigarettes and mapped out how I was going to change my life. As odd and bizarre as it all sounds, it was a total spiritual fast and it revealed me to myself.

Sometimes the worst things that happen to us turn out to be the best.
