what are your reasons to lose weight? :)
Just curious what your reasons are to liar weight.
Mine is that I have always been overweight and am constantly bullied for it at school. I'm not confident at all, and it's made me reclusive. Recently my best friend stopped talking to me, and I'm afraid that he was ashamed of how fat I am, so I'm trying to prove to him that he made a serious mistake. Also, I'm sick if being the fat friend!
What about you? :D
I'm like you but mine is family my cousins would be ashamed to be with me around there friends
Mostly personal reasons for me...I've been fat all my life and I was ready to make a change. Also, both my siblings are toothpicks, which makes family photos kind of awkward...
Anyway, I started at 5'2" 144, after 2 weeks I'm down to 141.5lbs
My entire family is small, but I'm very athletic and a little chubbier. My friends are all super skinny and joke about it, theyre nice to me and all, but I look so big around them. I want to lose some fat but not muscle.
Any reason is a good one when it's personal, right!
I just want to love the way I look all the time, not just on a good day. Also, I do not want to be the 'chubby' one out of my group of friends. Cheerleaders, marathon sprinters/runners, etc, and then me. It
Makes me feel super big even though I'm really not that big.
My weight to me has always seemed to hold me back, I want to reach my full potential and be able to use it for the rest of my life.
I've been large all my life but in the past few years I topped out big time, people were worried I'd die from something strenuous even though besides being huge I'm really healthy internally. So to make them less worried and to make me feel more like the girl I am inside this big body, I've been trying to healthily shed the pounds.
Once I hit puberty I gained a lot of weight. I was teased from middle school through high school and my roommate in college even made fun of me because of my weight. I ended up losing all my friends, got kicked out of college and was diagnosed with depression. Now I have decided I want to prove to everyone that I am a strong person and I want to gain more confidence in myself. I also want to feel healthier and happier than I have been before.
I used to be skinny when I was younger, but as I started getting a bit more curves at 16 - as is normal - I thought I was getting chubby and wanted to cut down on my food intake. From that moment on I started loving food (didn't care for it much before) and eating more than I wanted to...I guess that's what one might call negative reverse psychology. Anyway, been trying to lose weight since then, but pretty much just lose and gain small amounts over and over again.
I want to lose weight to fit into my clothes better, to feel better about myself (and when I'm with my boyfriend) and to perform better in my sport.
I have a few.
1) to be happy in my own skin. I hate what I see in the mirror I feel ugly and sled conscious all the time. I want to feel pretty and happy.
2) my dad. He tormented me about my weight since I was 8 years old. He still does. I can't stand It. I want to become very thin, just to rub it in his face.
I want to feel like I accomplished something, to be able to say the words: I used I be fat :)
Honestly, I have thought about it and of course I am doing it for me to feel healthier and feel more confident but lately I have been getting alot of attention from boys because now that I have lost 45lbs I'm not gonna lie I never knew I had a good body till now! Not to toot my own horn but I am 5'11 150 pounds and guys seem to be very interested in me now! I was always the girl with the pretty face but now I am the girl who has a great body and a pretty face!:p don't lie girls your know your doing it for the boys to a certain extent!:p
beinahe- i went through the exact same thing as you! once I turned 16, something in me changed. I had always been the slim one and then I just suddenly loved food ( combined with not having a mandatory phys ed class in school anymore). my mom told me once that I was getting chubby. I honestly didn't believe but then I weighed myself- gained 15 lbs in 3 months! scary!
my reasons- to not have to work so hard in the future to lose weight, because I'll maintain it correctly from now:)
I was skinny until about fifth grade. And when I was on fifth grade and gaining weight my mom told me that I was fat and was destined to stay fat , so when I turned 18 shed make my Dad pay for liposuction.... So I just learned to deal with being big. Then my mom left us right before 9th grade and i got really heavy that year. Then Decided I wanted to prove her wrong if I talked /saw her again. And I lost about 40 lbs . Then I saw her again in 11th grade and it felt good to prove her wrong. And it felt good being healthy and not bing self conscious all the time. But after that I gained back all my weight ..... Now I'm almost a year out of high school and around new years I reached my highest weight (185) and I lost 10 lbs by mid feb. and then got unmotivated. But here I am now. I want to better myself and be healthy. And be happy when I look in the mirror .
I noticed last time I lost weight I spent a lot less time on makeup, and felt pretty with a skinny face and a nice body .
Good luck to you all as well!
Um...actually I just hate my jiggly arms and thighs .im on the track team and our shorts are like 2 inches long! lol .i feel a bit insecure in them so I HAVE to lose it.also because this is the fattest I've been in my life.
Sport performance. I was always fit, even with my gut. I missed out on nationals because of my size, when I was blatantly better then the other trialist.
So this year, I am leaner and fitter, gunna kick his ass :)
Sick of being the fat freind and being made fun of because of it:/
Sick of thinking if my Freinds feel sorry for me cuz I'm fat.
Sick of EMBARESseing the people I hang with of the fattness
Because I want to be happy in my own skin. It's my body, why shouldn't I love it? Also this will show anyone who doubted my capabilities and tortured me with the word "FAT". I. Can't. Stand. That. Word.
I am strong, I'll prove it to everyone including myself. I am a great person and I deserve a healthy life and a healthy thin body I am proud and happy to be living with!!
Let's do this!!
On I just realized I already posted in this forum. LOL. Only I would do something like that... Well I need to keep my motivation up somehoww! Lol
Because of the nice person who told me that I had a fat ass. Yeah not for long
I'm trying to lose some fat before the beginning of cross country season so I can run faster.
