Hi! My name is Christen.
I am 19 and have always struggled with my weight. Here lately I have reached the heaviest point I have been, around 190lbs. When I was first weighed and realized I had let myself go, I instantly felt ugly. For the past few months I kept on saying "I want to lose 80 lbs". I was so depressed because it felt unreachable.
I started looking at pics of people on here at the weight I wanted to get to and my height and realized that isn't what I needed so I tried putting in my age height and weight and size and looked at the pictures they all looked similar sized as me so I realized I'm not the only one who looks like this. I also thought to myself "These girls don't look fat".
Now I am just trying to be more healthy and not obsess over the number on the scale. I got my confidence back because of this web site and set a realistic goal. Thanks for all who contribute!
