thanks everyone. :) just to clarify, i don't feel like my description of myself is me beating myself up. I don't understand why people try to lie to themselves. I see myself physically as someone who NEEDS to change what she looks like. I'm extremely unhappy with my appearance. I'm not trying to put overweight people down, as i am one, but for me personally, i'm tired of this body and i can't wait to be smaller and healthier and with that- i WILL be more attractive.

My daughter-in-law came to visit me yesterday. We sat on the porch, she with her doggy in her lap. She opened up and talked about how depressed she was and how she hated their coming back here to live because everybody talks about everybody else. I looked at her and I said, after all these years what do you think is so interesting that people would still be talking? I'm thinking, what kind of friends do you have? I suggested she go to our local Mental health clinic and sit down with a counselor and see if she can find answers for herself. She says she is depressed and that is why she is so fat. She is a beautiful person and yes she was quite slender when they married, but the inner beauty is still there. I hope she can find it.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, WOW! What a ride!

I'm glad you're getting active again but first you need to stop with the negative words, they hurt you no matter where they come from. I know, I used to beat myself up with those a dozen times a day everyday when I weighed in at 545 lbs way back when.

Then a friend of mine who really cared sat me down and gave me some really good advice as echoed in the other member here, if you degrade you'reself others will too. It does depend upon what "you" think about yourself not someone elses opinon. Believe it or not when others "feel" and "see" that you do carry yourself with pride and love they too will start respecting you and smiling at you and accept you.

Because of that advice and so much more and this site I'm down to 293 as of this past Monday. So you see it does have to do with attitude, self respect, love of self and self pride. You can find these things in yourself and once you do others will too. Good luck and let us know if you need any help we'll try our best to help you. Take care.

I am so sorry that you feel you have to degrade yourself by calling yourself a fat lump and that is why you could not get the boy... even at 509.8 I had guys (normal ones) chasing me.. it is how you carry yourself (head high and making the clothes you wear work)

YOu can and will achieve your goals if you stick with them- one day, one day, one pound at a time.. I know you can.. you are beautiful!

Ok, so I never really left I guess, I've just been extremely inactive on the site. At least I haven't GAINED any weight back. phew- but it's time to get serious..

part of this is because this past semester I developed the first CRUSH i have had since high school (like i felt like a teenager again- it was awful)... and i KNOW without a shadow of a doubt- if i wasn't this big fat lump that i am right now, I coulda had him. but because i am this big fat lump- i don't have him. and YES, HE is not the reason to lose this- but i am SO tired of being the fat girl. the girl that is fabulous in every way- but, ew, no i don't want to date her... yea i'm tired of that being me. and that is who i am. but i'm over it. ready to move on- feel good about myself ALL THE TIME, and meet people that are worth my time. wish me luck i guess. i figured this would be a good group to come talk to.
