I am personally Overweight. and not that kind of overweight where you think you are over weight but you just overreact. like 40 pounds overweight, overweight. I hate it but i love food :( i have tried to loose weight but i cant. And im pretty sure that im not the only one. I just want to talk to other people with weight problems, hear your story. mabey we can help each other? And not just overweight people but underweight people too. Anorexia, eating disorders, Bulimia.
Everyone is welcome!
So in other words, Hi I have a weight problem.
How bout you?
Yeah i try to excersise too but I always just end up eating away all my progress. WHY IS FOOD SO GOOD!? :(
but it dosent sound like you are overweight too much. just a couple of pounds. how do you exersise?
I am 5'2" and around 145 pounds. I'm aiming for somewhere around 110-115. Overeating isn't really a problem for me. I've been allergic to almost everything since I was 5 years old, and I've had Type One Diabetes since I was 9. Self control is my middle name.
But...Recently I counted up the amount of calories I eat in an average day, because I was gaining weight and I wanted to know if I should be eating less. I eat between 500 and 700 calories a day. And I gain weight on that.
My mom is also eating around that much, but she's dieting. That is NORMAL for me. And my mom eats mostly salads, and says she's hungry a lot. (btw, she's lost about 49 pounds since New Years. :D She was bragging the other day about how she's officially out of the "obese" range and into just "overweight."
So I've decided that I just need to exercise a ridiculous amount, because I don't really want to try eating 300 calories a day. >.< yesterday I walked for over two hours (about 7 miles).
I'm like 100 overweight! Yay, doesn't really help in the dating department.
I've been on both sides: slightly overweight, then almost fatally underweight. I'm currently borderline underweight but basically normal. Blah.
That is really strange! some people in my familly have this problem with their hormones or something where no matter what you do you will always gain weight. mabey you should get that checked out.
Ps. good for your mom! XD
I know right. It sucks.
How did you go from slightly overweight to super underweight? Was it like one of those crazy diets or something?
Side note: have you seen some of the diets people make up these days? its insanity! EG. only eat raw seaweed and unsalted cashews 3 times a day for 4 months. How do people even live!?
I got to the doctor every 4 months or so for my Diabetes, and just last year I had a bunch of lab tests and stuff done. If there was a problem, they'd know about it.
She's hit 50 now. :)
I've struggle with an eating disorder for almost five years now. When it developed, I was slightly overweight, and I've been underweight for the majority of the past 3-4 years. I've been at a healthy weight since I first received treatment, but I haven't maintained it for more than two months at a time...and that was really only like, once.
But I'm recovering and working towards a minimum healthy weight. Because treatment sucks. Blegh.
Eh, I'm just chubby =w= 5' and almost 130 lbs. But I think it's just an ectomorph thing, I don't really eat that much.
