How do you feel about yourself?

Do you ever not want to go out in public b/c you've gained weight? Do you think you're a good person? ECT......

I like myself but I am embarrased about my weight gain. I went from a size 0 to a size 12 in two years. From 106 to 166. But I don't let that stop me from going out and doing what I want. I almost do, lol but I don't.

  • I think I look like a whale, so yeah, I pretty much hate people looking at me. But it doesn't stop me from going out, I have to leave the house! What makes it even worse is I have been trying to lose weight and just seem to gain....ugh. But anyway! I think I am a good person, very trustworthy and loyal. Just this dang weight :(

  • I have lost 450 pounds and have 70 more to go and some days I would like to stay home but I do not because my goals will not wait and neither will I, I walk right out and do what I have to do.

  • I feel much better than I did 42 lbs ago! I'm in the process of losing weight, and I just feel so much better. Part of this process is realizing that I DESERVE to have a body I am comfortable in, both emotionally and physically. Losing the weigh has helped my back and my knees, and I have so much more energy, now that I work out at least 5 days a week. I've had depression, and I still struggle with it, so when I initially put on the weight, it really didn't help. I had friends dragging me out of the house, thankfully. My son keeps me from being a total homebody when I'm down, and now that I've been doing all this work, I'm a much happier person.

  • I have always been embarressed by how I look. I went to 300lbs while preggers with DD.. It was humilating.. But since 4 years ago I have lost over 120lbs. Its not perfect but I feel alot better about myself. Clothes fit and look better and going out to malls to shop are fun again. But i would change my tummy, I dont like the stretch marks.. Looks like wolverine went crazy

  • I feel great about myself! I am a child of God and have been blessed in so many ways. To not feel good about myself would be like looking down on what God has created.

  • I used to feel like an umpa lumpa since I am 5 feet tall and I was 180 pounds after the birth of my second child. But I have lost 70 pounds now and I am just starting to get my confidence back. It's still hard knowing I lost the weight, but I still think I am fat (which clearly I am not) but it is just stuck in my head (the old image of me that is)!
