Put that down, fatty! (again!)

Put that down, fatty! (again!)

*awkward wave* So, Sunflower is back – after 5 or so years on this bloody website, I am still here, still chunky and still drinking far too much lovely wine. I've made a new account as I couldn't remember the password to my old one – it was also depressing looking through old threads and seeing my 4 thousand odd posts as I struggled through my previous attempts at weight loss. Nice to start again and look to the future instead of looking through old threads seeking motivation!

So a bit…

2007- Lost 36kg in 28 weeks, following the Cohen's Lifestyle Program. 2013- hovering about 4kg above the weight I would like to be. I stay in the forum to maintain my enthusiasm & to help keep me committed to a healthy lifestyle. I eat most foods in moderation, but very little take-away or processed food. (Edited 31/03/2013)

Hi. I'm glad to have found this site. I am 71 years old, female, and for the last two decades have been suffering from something called psychotic depression. I used to be a slim 8 st 4 lbs, but when I was put on high doses of medication my weight ballooned to 12 st 10 lbs.

As my illness is now in remission, thank goodness, I am looking for ways to lose weight. I'm afraid I am fairly sedentary, apart from walking to the shops, but don't want to join a gym. Recently I have joined…

Starting again with a pretty good day.

Starting again with a pretty good day.

Joined this forum yesterday for some motivation from people also trying to do better in their lives. Just got back from vacation almost two weeks ago and boy did we eat good in Orlando. It had been really hard to get back to normal everyday eating with less fast food. Today was the first day I didn't even have a craving to stop at Arby's for a turkey sandwich with large curly fries and a large diet Coke – thanks to this forum and reading about other people's stuggles. Went to 9rounds -…

Emily's 6 Month Challenge

Emily's 6 Month Challenge

Hi there,

What is my 6 month challenge I hear you ask? Basically, at the moment, I am at a complete crossroads in my life. I am free as a bird which is a fantastic thing. When life gives you this breathing space, it's a good idea to take stock and figure out what you really want. I want the following:

– Hot body
– Hot boyfriend
– Hot job

Kind of like the list they make about Regina George in Mean Girls. Anyway, I am giving myself 6 months to make all of these things happen. 6…

I need to change the way i eat but im notexactly sure how to start. I know i have to cut out sugars and starches because those are my biggest crutch. Im an emotional eater and always seem to find food to ease my stress level.
I was already obese when the doctors put me on some very aggressive bipolar meds. In two years time i went from 300 close to 500 pounds. I took myself off the bipolar meds so im not constantly hungry anymore but at my current weight there isn't much i can do in the way…

hello!

hello!

i've come here for the weight loss journey support because today i start to seriously get back into good shape. in high school i was extremely overweight (i weighed about 400 pounds, maybe more) and over six years i got down to 189lbs. unfortunately over the last year i've gone through a tremendous bout of depression and have been struggling with food and ballooned up to 320, an extraordinary weight gain in a very short period of time. for me personally i believe it is largely a lack of…

I don't know what it feels like to be thin.

I don't know what it feels like to be thin.

I have been mentally debating with myself on whether or not I should start this diary. I am a 23 years old, 170cm (5'57"?) male. My weight is 100.7kg (222lb), but by the end of this diary I'm going to look at a much more comfortable number.

Now why the confidence? Because I don't feel like I am in my own body. I don't know what it's like to participate in activities, do grocery shopping, smile and be with friends without feeling slightly awkward about where I place my limbs to make it so I…
