    1) Feeling frumpy and unfeminine
    2) Sweltering in the summer because I don't want to show my arms/legs/anything
    3) All the hideous photos on Facebook from last semester. AWFUL. Double chin, no bone structure in my face, huge thighs... boo.
    4) Trying on jeans for an hour and finding none that fit right. It hurts deep.
    5) People don't seem to respect me when I'm fat.
    6) Feeling embarrassed to be eating or buying ''unhealthy'' food in public
    7) Not going out with my friends because I have no going out clothes that fit
    8) Sweating like crazy after very short walks.
    9) My naturally huge calves being even bigger
    10) Constant shame, constant self hate, fear of going outside my house

    Difference after losing 20lb (25 left to go):
    1) Starting to feel feminine again now that my body is shaping up
    2) n/a it's not summer yet
    3) N/a haven't had any pictures of me since losing weight
    4) I can now buy jeans! And not huge legged ones, nice fitted ones that make me feel great
    5) New people respond better to me
    6) Totally cool with buying and eating whatever I want in public
    7) N/a friends and I in different parts of the world at the moment
    8) So much less sweat! It's amazing.
    9) They're shrinking! They'll always be big but I'd like them to be as small as possible
    10) I wore a shirt to town the other day and didn't cover it up with a hoodie.

    8. i hate it when i see people play basketball at my gym and i can only look because if i play, mr. fatty may break his ankle again
    9. i hate it not being able to wear whatever i want
    10. i hate it when i think about my exe's and if they see me they will say, whow you got fat! i hate it!

    i believe that these feelings can be fuel toward driving yourself in a positive direction. i try not to say "i hate" anything... however, i do HATE being overweight and the way it makes me feel, and that, in turn, helps push me to lose the weight.

    1. i hate feeling my stomach jiggle every time i drive over a bump in the road.
    2. i hate being stared at when i order a smaller meal or box up half of what came on the plate.
    3. i hate being told that i look like i've put on a few pounds, whether i have or not.
    4. i hate not being able to fit into 3/4 of the clothes that i own.
    5. i hate what being overweight has done to my self esteem. i am a fabulous person, and i need to let my fabulousity shine.
    6. i hate being out of breath every time i climb a flight of stairs.
    7. i hate how my roommate laughs at me every time i fall off the wagon and have a bad meal, and says "yeah, sure you'll stick to it".
    8. i hate being a yo-yo-er. my will power sucks. it is a constant struggle.
    9. i hate being told that i'm fine just the way i am. i'm not fine. i'm clinically obese, i have high cholesterol and suffer from sleep apnea. all at the age of 35.
    10. i hate that this has been a lifelong struggle.

    and i'm terrified that it will continue to be a lifelong struggle.
  • 1. Looking in the mirror and seeing a 3-month pregnant woman (I've never had kids)
    2. Dressing is all about camouflage, I hide my belly under oversized T-shirts
    3. Not having guys check you out
    4. No longer being able to shop online
    5. Feeling envious of skinny girls
    6. Feeling the rolls when I'm sitting
    7. My arms don't hang down straight at my sides - they always hit the side fat of my stomach
    8. Being fatter than all my sisters
    9. Wearing muscle tanks and having fat rolls showing on the side.
    10. Getting sore feet in high heels because of all the excess weight weighing down on my feet
  • Here it goes, I am 6 foot tall, and I used to weigh 190 pounds back in High School. 5 years after and I weigh 285 pounds and its totally depressing.

    1. Tired after going up the stairs/ Heavy breathing.
    2. Nothing fits me, and its extremely hard to buy cloths that look good.
    3. I hate myself.
    4. No girlfriend... girls don't even look at me. I haven't had a partner since high school.
    5. Depressed all the time.
    6. Hate the way I look in pictures now.
    7. MAN BOOBS.... Very sad one, girl asked me if she could motorboat me once in Vegas couple years back.
    8. I cant stop eating its like an addiction.
    9. My friends playing around scoop my man boobs playing around, and it really hurts inside... I am sick of it.

    I thought this could potentially be a motivation thread for some people. I read something like this on another forum and it was really inspirational. It reminded me of all the reasons I hated being fat. It also listed things you hate about losing weight, but I'd rather stay positive. :)

    So, list ten (or more) things you HATE about being overweight (or hated)!

    1. Sex, I hate being on top, because I feel like I'm crushing my poor husband, or that it jiggles too much. Esp. lately, it's made me completely self conscience to the point I don't even want to have sex.

    2. I have PCOS, so I'm hoping that when I lose weight, my periods wont be so wacko, and I might be somewhat fertile. Also, I have a lot of body hair (on my stomach) that I hate, that I'm hoping will go away, perhaps, when I lose weight.

    3. Having to lift my stomach to shave "down there"

    4. Being paranoid when I'm out that people are staring at me thinking "She's so fat and ugly." or "Why is he (my husband) with HER?!"

    5. Not having any energy

    6. Not feeling like I have self control and being disappointed with myself.

    7. Looking at pictures of myself when I was 170-180 and remembering thinking back then "I'm SO fat, ew. I need to lose weight." And now looking and thinking "Omg, I wish I was that weight again. I looked good"

    8. The fact it doesn't look like I have a butt at all. I'm really curvy, and I have a large bust and wider hips and teeny waist, but, my butt is smaller, and since I'm overweight, you can DEFINITELY tell. My fat rolls look like they're shading my butt. :|

    9. My double chin and turkey gobble.

    10. Being scared to get on an airplane, amusement park ride, or something else because I'm scared I'm too fat.

    11. Feeling like I'm the fattest person in this country, and getting stares because I probably am. (I live in South Korea, most people are stick thin here.)

    All of the above!!! But stick at it, we can all do this :o) x

    ok... 10 things i hate about being overweight (i didnt read the others after the op so i wouldnt be influenced)
    1. the flab on my inner thighs
    2. shopping means i am limited to the what fits my body right, not necessarily something that lets me express my personality. i am learning that more as my sizes go down, i didnt realize my whole wardrobe was a compromise until i had more options.
    3. pre diabetes
    4. the feeling that i dont have the right to be places, and do things... like go dancing, or be romantic. because i have always been told that overweight people are not welcome in a romantic world.
    5. my respiratory disease is much much worse when i carry a ton of weight and dont work out.
    6. my back hurt all the time.
    7. i would get tired an hour into a fun excursion. and want to go home.
    8. if a bad guy (or bad girl) was chasing me, or a tidal wave, or a pack of zombies, i would never survive.
    9. my son was learning bad habits from me.
    10. i hated that food wasnt solving my problems. and if fact was making them worse like a viscious cycle...

    what i love about losing weight... is that i have the ability to face all these problems and deal with them and not hide from them and bury them in a full feeling. and therefore clear space in my head for ACTUALLY solving my problems.

    5. I hate being sick all the time
    6. Being ridiculed, being laughed at, making fat jokes because it's easy

    4. Having my inner thighs BLEED in summer while wearing a skirt because of Chub-Rub

    I think this is a great idea! I'll give it a go:

    1) Not looking good in clothes
    2) Having to hold your stomach in all the time
    3) Flabby arm jiggle
    4) Feeling as though food controls your life
    5) Being out of breath after going up stairs
    6) MUFFIN TOP!
    7) Not being able to wear shorter dresses, skirts or shorts for that matter!
    8) The indent of your pants, trousers or jeans in your belly - seriously! I can see the actual zipper on my gut at the end of the day!
    9) Unecessary sweating
    10) Not feeling like you are worthy of love, because you can't love yourself.
    11) Having your dream outfit be something that literally all of your friends pull off on a daily basis... All I want to be able to do is wear skinny jeans and a tight white top. Then accessorise with bursts of colour!

    1. Refusing to buy bigger jeans=living in sweatpants. Something I never thought I would do.
    Sex, I hate being on top...Esp. lately, it's made me completely self conscious to the point I don't even want to have sex.
    THIS. All day. Also leaving a shirt or tank top on during sex..
    3. Wearing a jacket constantly at work no matter how hot it is to hide my stomach.
    4. The other day when I went to the hairdresser. I was dying for her to put the smock over me and mortified when she took it off and I saw my stomach.
    5. Avoiding the mirror when naked at all costs. I just don't look anymore.
    6. Yesterday I was at a baby shower talking about my brother finding out he's having a girl. I said "I'm so happy it's a girl" and a girl I just met overheard me and said "...Are you pregnant?" "No, my sister-in-law is." "Oh I was gonna say! You look damn good for knowing the sex already!" Nice save though on her part. Had to hand it to her.
    7. Breaking zippers and buttons on things. No joke...just broke the zipper to one of my favorite hoodies the other day. Have gone through 3 pairs of work pants in the last year. (I wear a dreaded uniform.) Can no longer wear the button up shirts. Have resorted to the polo. :(
    8. Being sublimely happy to have found pull-up dressy black pants with no zipper or buttons...that's not right.
    9. One of my friends who I always viewed as being very overweight now weighs less than me.
    10. Feeling like I can't do it.
