My name is Sarah. I am 23 years old. I have been extremely overweight my entire life, and I am TIRED of being a fat-ass!!! At 21 years old I was tipping the scales at 333 pounds!!! Now, a year later and 150 pounds lighter, I am ready to get serious and make it to my goal weight of 150!! Only 33 pounds to go! It's starting to seem like a more realistic goal!

I honestly have done most of that.... I think my cravings are mostly MENTAL not physical. No matter how long i force myself to eat the healthy options---i still remember what fat tasted like- AND IT WAS GOOD! I just have a mental addiction to JUNK food. I just have to have self control...I love chocolate and I LOVE fruity candy and I LOVE salty chips...Its all a mental issue with me. But how do I keep myself motivated to not go run to the delicious, but yet quite contradictory - disgusting, foods? What do you tell yourself to keep from caving in to a craving?

Why do we have cravings? And why are they worse sometimes than others? MOST OF ALL Why is it that all the food that is so BAD for you tastes SO GOOD!?

I have to stay strong and not give into my cravings, but sometimes it can be SUCH a struggle. Any advice?

Rude people
This is exactly what my last journal entry is about. I can't stand rudeness. It is my number 1 pet peeve! Bullies hurt my feelings but I try to never stoop down to their level. I always keep in mind treating other people the way I would like to be treated, and even those who treat me as less than anyone should ever be treated, I try to politely put them in their places Smile

Loose skin - how much to lose before it starts?
It really depends on a lot of factors. Age, skin texture, elasticity in skin, hydration of skin, and thickness of skin. I have lost 136 pounds since my largest and I have SOME loose skin in my belly, arms, thighs, and boobs. But it doesnt look like ive lost 136 pounds just from my skin. Its not really a problem. Can only tell the skin is loose if i squeeze the areas or shake them. I stay hydrated and I use lotion everyday.
