Current Weight:(23 Nov 14) 291.8 lb
Goal Weight:200.0 lb
following: LadyAng's own diet
performance: gaining 1.2 lb a week

Well... where do I start? I'm 28, engaged and planning a October 2011 wedding. I decided to make it a late 2011 wedding so I know I can reach my weight goal... and to grow my hair out. :) I have this ideal picture of what I want to look like, so I'm going to stay on track and get there no matter what!

I've been overweight probably since elementary school; ironically, when I was about 5-6 people use to think my parents never fed me because I was so skinny. I've done diets and pills and once I stopped - the weight was back on and then some. I did Weight Watchers in 2007, lost about 28-30 pounds and then stopped once I started dating my now fiancé. Of course, I gained it back.

In June 2009, I had enough and wanted to be healthier - down the road I have plans to have a family and I know that I need to do something about my health now so it'll benefit me when the time comes. I have lost 37 pounds, then I became a yo-yo with my weight once I stopped going to meetings. I finally decided I can't do this on my own, so I joined FS and WW to keep me on track! =) I set my goal for 200, but I want to be lower than that - just don't know what. I haven't seen below 200 in so long I have no idea what I'll look like!

Accelerate Weight loss
I would agree with Ninjapanda. Unless you're not logging all your foods, it would see you're starving yourself! Eat more, healthy foods, and it'll work in your benefit. Looking at your weight loss so far, I would think you're doing VERY well. Keep it up!! Don't push yourself too fast in losing, patience! Smile

Fatorexia: I'm not that fat...
I think in general, women take everything out of context and make it appear as an insult when really it's not. Or, we don't take them seriously and think they're lying. I have a tendency to do that. We want compliments, but when we get it, we question it. Weird, huh? I remember one time my Dad complimented me on looking skinnier and I just told him I've been tanning a lot more so it appears that I am skinnier when really I'm not. He just looked at me and said "Angela, I was giving you a compliment!!" Whoops. :\

Sometimes I will say to my husband (poor fella) "am I that big??"

Oh my... I did that the other weekend to my fiancee. I'm so horrible about it. This one lady was dancing and she was wearing the same shirt that I have. I turned and asked him if I looked like her and if I'm that big. I am constantly comparing because my eyes definitely play tricks on me. What I see in the mirror is completely different to people see me as, or how the camera shows me as. I remember one time someone video taped my friend and I; when we watched it back, all I kept saying was "Is that really me?! Where did my neck go?!"
