I'm Casey. I have gained 12 pounds in six months and need to lose the weight. I am 5'8 and weigh 151lbs. I want to get back down to 139 asap and then down to 135 and hold steady. I started working from home a lot and that is when the weight started stacking on. Lack if movement and food. I feel gross. Can't get into my Size 4s anymore and my 6a are tight. Totally disgusted with myself that I let it get this far!

Hello I decided to join so I can talk and be around people that hopefully will understand me or something. For years I have been fighting a battle with food and it's very embarrassing and it's hard for me to talk to anyone about my struggles cause they don't understand and I can tell I am annoying to them. so I just suffer in silence. My weight is a viscous battle that I can't win and I hate it. I never seem to be happy with myself I will be thin for awhile and even then I think I am fat and hate my body it's only when I put weight on and fall into a deeper depression and battle that I wish I was back at that size again yet when I was I wasn't happy. I really don't think I will ever win this battle but I am hoping maybe this site will help me. Well that's all I know to say right now this is my first time ever joining any site so plz feel free to help, write, or give me the lingo on how things go. :-) sure hope everyone is doing good and happy

Hi! I'm Davie, (Hi other males if their's any...) I have made several accounts on here, but my memory is such a trickery thing I keep forgetting them. I hope this simple name, will remain. I joined this site mainly to have a sense of belonging in this struggle, whether people believe it or not. I am still not in my "Ideal shape," and honestly I don't think I ever will be. But all is all. Overall I have lost a staggering amount of weight, and I want to lose more. I came for the tips, and possibly a way to escape this ceaseless void of loneliness... Anyways !

Hi, my name is Helena. I found this website through a blog on tumblr, but I joined because I want to lose all of the fat I feel makes me look disgusting. I hit my highest weight of 145 in February, and it was a shock. I was eating up to eight meals (not snacks) a day and I was so sick of it. I started my weight loss in March. Since then, I have lost over twenty pounds and currently reside at 123. I'm 5 foot 4. I am so desperate. I want to feel comfortable in my own skin, and the only way to do that is to lose weight.

The hardest part is these past two years I've been living on the east coast (I'm from Los Angeles,ca)because my ex husband was in navy and had me move here after i was abandoned I had to stay here because he stole all of my savings and I've had to start savingI can go back home, I already got plane tickets for me and new bf I met here and were both suppose to leave to Los Angeles in 2 months, I'm completely alone all I have is my boyfriend who I'd questionable if anyone can help me be Ana I could really use the support

Hi There,

I joined this site because I stumbled upon it while looking for motivation/thinspiration during a water fast. After reading through various posts and forums I realized that these people are going through the same torment over weight and food that I am! I was excited to find folks who understood instead of saying, "You don't have to watch what you're skinny enough (which I'm not). Or telling me I do not eat enough (which I do). I'm very excited about this! I think it will help not feel so isolated... being able to talk to people who don't criticise or get all preachy!

Hi! I'm Justine. I joined because I want to lose weight and nothing seemed to work out for me. I've always been "slim" but I want to be skinny, and I hope this will help me. I currently weigh 55.0 kg and I'm 168cm tall, but I want to be 45 kg :) or 47 I don't know, I'll see what suits me ;) 

I'm 15 years old and I'm so glad my best friend introduced me to this site! I've been reading the forum for the past couple weeks and I'm loving and relating to everything! I really feel like this is where I 'belong' haha :)

Hello. I'm also new here.

My story is strange. Even when I was really young I always noticed that I weighed a little bit more than other kids and this really bothered me. How an 8 year old can be bothered by weight is perplexing, but I can only remember hating myself for a good majority of my childhood and the self loathing is still there.

I've always been possessed by the idea of perfection. Perhaps it's because my father always made me feel like I was inadequate. He was abusive, and even now my relationship with him is strained, though he hasn't hit me since my sophomore year of high school.

I'm 19 years old and a sophomore in college. Since I can remember I've always hated my body. I am 5'0" and I weigh 132 pounds which is just too fat for my body type. I went vegan about a year ago for ethical reasons but I had to stop because I switched room mates freshman year and my new room mate didn't have a fridge. I use the refrigerator to store fruit and perishables like vegan cheese that the cafeteria doesn't have. So needless to stay I had to stop being vegan. I gained the 11 pounds I lost right back and since then I've felt horrible about myself. My boyfriend and my family tells me I'm beautiful the way I am but I can't accept it because I feel mediocre and I refuse to accept mediocrity as a way of life.

I am vegan again and hoping to lose 32 lbs, making my UGW 100. I've been working out daily and eating 2 meals a day. One solid meal and one protein shake.

I don't think I have a problem but I'm worried about myself. Given my history and my feelings about my body. Sometimes I have visions of just cutting all my fat off. And when I look in the mirror it makes me sick. I hate being fat. And the scale haunts me.

I want to love myself. And I feel like getting to 100 pounds (which is proper for my body type) will make me feel better. But I just don't know.

Hi, I'm Jenn. I'm 24. Ive suffered from eating disorders since 18. I have two extremes either I eat hardly anything or everything in sight. I guess I'm on here to find others like me. People who understands the struggle. 4 years back I lost 117 pounds in about half a year from being anorexic and slightly bulimic. I kept it off until two years ago then I gained it all back and best myself up over it everyday. I have body dysmorphia. I can't look in a full body mirror because I hate it.. even when I was smaller I still saw an a almost 300 pound ball of fat and flesh. I've been hooked on diet pills before, those and multivitamins kept me going. I can't stand how I've let myself go, it's only been Brevard of my grandmother passing. When that happened food became my best friend, and in the end it's become my enemy, the proverbial wolf in sheep's clothing. I'm trying to be better this time, but like I've stated.. I just need someone who understands what it's like. Please don't message me and say fat girls can't have eating disorders, because I've proven even to myself that's not true. I guess I'm just looking for others who have shared my struggle. :/

Hi.. just joined this group today... I'm sick of the way I look... want to be more of what I used to be before I had my baby girl and got depressed with the way things turned out with her dad.   I've had issues with weight all my life.  I've gone from size 2 to a size 10 in two years... down to a size 4 then to a size 12... I've been a cutter and been on various "experimental" depressants for years... before I finally stopped taking them and need help from others now to get my mind over "comfort foods" and get to where I should be.  I don't feel comfortable in my own skin right now and would really like support with helping me to feel right again... not feel like im covered in some skin that isn't mine.
