I just want to be healthy and active. It's hard to do that if you're carrying too much extra weight around.

I do think Ewen has a point, though. We don't need to be a size 6 to be happy.

Hey, if your're healthy at a size 12 then rock it....I just know for myself personally I'm not totally healthy because of the patterns that I've fallen into.

I think a lot of it goes deeper than just wanting to lose a few dress sizes. I blame 1/2 - ok, all - of my horrible self-esteem on my weight, and it's something I'd love to get rid of. I say I feel huge, but I know that I'm not, not by any stretches of the imagination, but it's what I see in my head that's the problem. I do have health issues in my family that are motivating me to lose, so there is something more in it for me than liking what I see when I look in the mirror.

I know you aren't huge or even big but at the same time you personally see room for some improvement...not a whole new person, just you but better. You healthier and stronger. (I've seen a pic of you and you are very beautiful though--don't forget that!!)

Personally for me... I have been in excellent shape previously. I was a national competitor in sport karate. I can remember how it felt to be energetic instead of sluggish and having your body feel strong rather than tired and weak. So I know where I am at now needs to be improved and I feel good about myself by doing this...I'm doing it for the right reasons--myself.

And on that note, I want to say thank you girls. Because I have 'accountability partners' of sorts....Last night I totally did not want to work out, I was all about vegging....but I got off my duff and did work out and I felt alot better mentally and physically afterwards because of it.

I think that's the best thing about this thread, really. The fact that we're all helping to keep eyes on each other means we can keep each other positive and healthy, and start yelling at each other if we're not actually eating enough or something.

That said, I hope you all know that your beauty goes WAY beyond your pants size. And I think that's what Ewen was trying to remind us of in the other thread.

I will say it again. I am 30 and do not have the body as I was in my early 20s. I have more curves and from several of my male friends off of this board I have been told nice things about my current body. I personally want to lose weight because I do not like my clothes fitting tight around me anymore and I also want to develop better eating habits.

I do have to admit. I do not want my breast size to go down any. I love my breast size! I am not kidding.

Wow, clearly I should've wandered in here sooner!

I am going through my weight thing too...I've lost 5 pounds on the Weight Watchers point system and I feel good about myself. However, something tells me that my positive feelings are more to do with the fact that I'm working out--I have done something about my unhappiness and admitted that I have a problem.

I am an emotional eater and I have to stop equating feelings with food. So far, it seems to be working out fine. I have replaced my junk food with fruits and veggies and I have learned to say "No" to people who offer me food and I'm not hungry. But it is on a day to day basis and I'm happy that I'm not starving myself to achieve my weight loss goal.

A big to all my beautiful ladies. I don't know why as women we impose impossible standards of beauty on ourselves. Our mothers were and are beautiful without the Maybelline. Why do we feel like we need it?

Well said, angel.


I just cracked open my first sugar free red bull in almost a week. I plan on having more nuts later for a snack.

Well I went to the mall today. I tried on clothing at Lane Bryant to see what I can wear there. I can wear the size 14 pants and skirts with ease but the tops are too big for me.

My pants that I am wearing now are baggy as hell but the waist (where the excess fat is) is tight and making it hard for me to feel comfortable. And because of that I want to lose the weight.

Yesterday I walked to the store right down the block from me, because it was such a nice day out. Today when i go over to my mom's I'm taking Nikki for a walk.

I just had a fruit smoothie for breakfast.
