blob here.  5’3″ and 105.  Sounds thin right?  Nope, still pretty chubby.  I cant excercise bc of a surgery I recently had.  Cant excercise for 3 more months at best.

EDIT Actually probably 107 right now bc I just ate dinner.

LOL….  I couldn’t have read your title at a better time than this…I just finished stuffing my face with a double cheeseburger & fries, and was eyeing the left over Halloween candy!  I feel like a fatty fat fat cakes!

I feel like a big fat pile of fatness right now. I work at a newspaper and since today was an election day, they catered in food for us. Lasagna, salad, bread. But on top of it, I along with 3 or 4 others brought in left over candy. I ate more than I can count. Ugh. Tummy is mad.

There are days that I feel like a big blubbery whale. I see my thighs and my love handles and just want to cry because it feels like they are never going away. Even though my Wii FINALLY said I am normal, I still feel crappy. I’m trying to eat better, but I obviously have no resolve (blasted Nerd and Bottle Caps and Kit Kats!).I’m 5’4″ and 145. I’m a curvy lady.

Just know you are not alone. We all have things about ourselves we don’t like. Just keep working toward your goal weight and remember that your SO loves you just the way you are and will love you just the way you turn out/want to be.

I’ve been feeling like this lately. I’ve actually lost a lot of weight in the past year, but I’ve been having a very discouraging month or two. I gained so much weight when I was pregnant and barely lost anything afterward. I’ve lost 35lbs and still need to lose 10 more to be at pre-pregancy weight (and that was still the heaviest I had ever weighed). However, I’m 5’1″ so just about any amount of weight looks bad.

I’m taking 18 credit hours, work, come home clean and hang out with Fiance (when he isn’t out of state) and our daughter. We also have two dogs and a cat. I’m a busy lady and I rebroke my tailbone. Working out just isn’t on my radar right now.

AND this was our first Halloween in our new house, which is in a subdivision, so we bought a ton of candy and only had two trick or treaters. 🙁

I’ve always been thin, my whole life. Then I got pregnant and gained 30 pounds in 3 months, and then miscarried. I was starving during my whole pregnancy, and I felt like I wanted to barf unless I was eating carbs. So yeah… I gained a lot! Most people don’t know I was pregnant, they just know I got fat. My hubby is very supportive about it though, but as much as he keeps telling me that he’s the only one who counts when it comes to thinking I look good, I know that I count more.

I am 6′, but have put on about 30-40 lbs in the last few years.  Luckily, I guess, since I am so tall it spreads out pretty well and doesn’t look like I gained that much.  But, on the other hand, I have to loose that much to make a dent as far as size and shape go.  I have been going to the gym several times a week, and trying to eat better/not as much and have seen some results in the mirror, but no actual weight loss.  This week I have been sick, so I haven’t actually been to the gym in about a week and now I am feeling super gross.  I am about to make a 16 hour drive today, and know that I will have to be careful about what I eat on the road (where McDonalds is the norm!).

I think that self image is something that a lot of women struggle with and it’s a shame that many feel that they can’t just come out and talk about it.

This month is my work out month though so let’s hope things turn around…although that Halloween candy is mighty tempting….

*Puts hand up*

I am 20 pounds heavier than I want to be (have been for at least 3 years) but normally I am fit and overweight. But ever since the honeymoon (beginning of Sept) I have not been able to get back into a work-out schedule and I am a part-time personal trainer for pete’s sake! Every time I train a client I feel uber guilty!

I feel like that a lot.  And it’s depressing.  I know I don’t look the way I feel, but it’s hard to escape the mental image of how you think you look vs what you look like really.  For me it has nothing to do with height or numbers, it’s just…like a self hatred thing, I don’t know.  It’s a hard funk to get out of.

me me me. I’m 5’7 and weigh 145 at the moment. I would LOVE to be 135 again, but I already eat healthy, and I work and go to law school full time, so coming home and working out just never happens. I really do need to get back into it though.

Yes, I do feel like that from time to time and it totally sucks. It’s particularly around my period and I generally have 1-2 days that are kind of a wash. But I came to realize that even though it simply can’t be done on certain days, for all those other days, we really do see what we want to see and feel what we want to feel–respecting yourself and loving yourself is ultimately YOUR responsibility. And it’s not about having the ideal body–it’s about having the ideal mindset. So to some extent, you have to be your own cheerleader and you have to police your own thoughts. I know it’s easier said than done, but you must to tell yourself when you think ugly thoughts–literally tell yourself–STOP. And you also have to tell yourself every day, every time you look in the mirror, that you are beautiful. YOU are the one who has to find beauty in yourself and you are the one who has to police your own poison.

The other thing that I do, which is probably more practical although perhaps difficult with your schedule, is take yoga (in a room without mirrors). The reason is because yoga put an emphasis on what my body could DO versus what it looked like, and it really did help me honor myself as I am today, not what I think I should be. At the very least, find a little time–even if it’s just a 20 minute walk–for a bit of exercise to give to yourself. When you’re active, even just a bit, you really will feel healthier. I don’t even need to do that much, exercise-wise, to renew a bit of self-love.
