150lbs is my goal.

I'm almost 300lbs. I'm 5'5, I don't look 300lbs, but I am. I told myself if I ever weighed that much, that I would need to do some SERIOUS dieting and exercising....well....now here I am. 300lbs.

 

I was 170 before I got pregnant, but I gained 100lbs, and kept on gaining after I had my son. When I was 170, I was healthy, a little bit chunky, but I could fit into a size 10 and I was happy with that.

 

I don't have any health issues because of my weight, as of yet. My husband doesn't mind the extra chunk, and I actually think he enjoys it more now that I'm a fatty, but, I need to be healthy first and foremost. I don't have any self-esteem issues, at all, I love who I am, and whether I'm fat or skinny, makes no difference, I can feel good and look good at any size...I just need to be healthy.

 

My goal is 150lbs because thats supposedly the weight I should be at (actually thats the most I should be at, my doc says I should be 135, but I'm thick so, my weight is distributed differently than the average)But I think I would be fine at 170 or 160.

 

I'm doing this. I have to.

Why would you let yourself get to 300 before doing anything?  Not trying to be mean, just asking.

You are welcome.....

You know...you should keep a journal. Start with a picture of what you look like today and each month or so add a new pic with your weight loss so you can actually see what progress you are making

Your BMI is 50 which is in the super morbidly obese range.  You are in danger of sudden death and a host of serious, life threatening health issues.  You would qualify for a bypass through insurance.  You need a weight of 150 or less to put you in the normal weight range.


I had a bypass last year and lost 140 lbs.  My only regret is not doing it sooner.

 Thats a great idea. I downloaded a weight tracker on my phone, just to keep me a little motivated. But taking pics is def a great idea.

 Well, I gained most of it during pregnancy. I honestly tried not to gain so much, I did eat fairly healthy, but my main food craving was bacon, and then my mil is mexican, and I seriously could not, not eat with her near me. She would say "Ay mija, you need to eat." And then she'd give me a plate of the best damn mexican food I have ever had the pleasure of eating, lol. And then I had a really bad pregnancy. I was always in pain. Like my hips hurt sooooo bad, and by the end of it I could barely even walk because the pain was so bad. I used to be really active, but that pregnancy did a number on my body. Then when I had my son, I had a c-section (its a long story, it was a very unnecessary c-section), but that put about 10 pounds on me because you can't really do anything after, and then I just kinda got lazy. My diet isn't that bad, I eat more veggies than anything else, I'm just lazy...I'll admit it.

 I'd rather not have a surgery. I'm going to do it the natural way first.
