Hi my name is Erica and I'm here for some support on losing about 25 lbs. Right now I am 140 (oops mistyped!) 150 lbs and 5'4" and this is a pic of me at this weight

 .

Right now I just feel like food is an enemy. I don't feel like eating anything because last night my fiance told me that I have gotten "out of shape" and "flabby". It really hurt my feelings :( He admits that he has gotten "out of shape and flabby" too but still to hear that really just killed my self esteem. I just don't feel like eating anything at all. The thing is, I weighed more than this when he and I got together and the lowest I have weighed since being with him is like 147... I'm just confused and sad right now..

My name is Rachel and I live in Olympia, WA. I joined this group because I'm interested in the topics that are discussed. I don't need to necessarily lose any more weight but I love healthy living and would like to learn how to be healthier.

Hi Erica, I'm so sorry he said that to you. That would be so hurtful. I think you look great, not flabby at all. Feeling good about yourself is so important to being happy. I hope you can feel good about yourself and your body as you begin your journey towards a healthier lifestyle. Good luck with your weight-loss goals.

Hi my name is Connie. I am 46. I have not always been overweight. In fact when I was younger I was very much underweight. When I had kids. I gained weight. With each child I gained more weight. I had 4 miscarriages, and never lost the weight with them.

I have been married for 21 years. My husbands name is Ed. He likes bigger woman. So, my size was never an issue with him. We have 3 children. My 2 boys are 27 and 16. Matthew is not his biological child. But, is his in every other sense. Except like the younger me his is very much underweight. He is over 6 foot tall and weighs about 130lbs. Neil is his dad's son through and is part of the reason I want to get my weight under control! He is 16 and is about 5'6" and weighs about 200lbs. He is however very athletic. We also have a petit 20 year old daughter. She seems to think that she is fat. Which scares me. Because she isn't! She is a beautiful young lady, and is well with in a normal body mass index. She is 5 foot (maybe) and weighs approx 120lbs.

My weight loss journey started last June. I went to the doctors. She had been suggesting for a while that consider weight loss surgery. In September of 2010 I went for consultation. It was over an hour away. My health is not so good. Not just from my weight but for other issues. The next morning I suffered a minor stroke. So, I decided that I needed to heal before considering that idea again. Last summer I started again.

My beginning weight was 356lbs when I went to the doctors in June. I started working with her and dietitian and since then I have lost over 60lbs. It is not as much as I would have liked to lose by this point. But, it is a start! I am just down below 300lbs. My clothes are starting to not fit.

That is my story so far!
