Hey there Deb and Star
Your words were uplifting to me tonight. I went over on my calories... .DANGIT !!! The first week. I decided to make this week a new start. So I am considering it my first week !!!

I was in a similar situation growing up. My parents probably thought they were helping me, but constantly nagging me about my eating habits, with comments like "people don't like fat girls" never helped. It made me more down on myself so I stopped caring what people thought. If someone was going to judge me based on my size, they weren't worth being friends. I never learned to eat to be healthy. Now that process is taking a lot longer. I still turn to food as comfort, rather than nutrition. And of course, the comfort foods are the worst for someone with PCOS. But I just have to take it one day at a time, and get back on the wagon whenever I slip up.

My inspiration is my hope for the future. I want to have a healthy pregnancy and raise healthy kids. I want to spend a long life with my husband, and not have to worry about heart disease or diabetes. And through hard work, I'm going to do it.

I'm from Seattle, WA.

I like to look at Spark pages of people who have lost a lot of weight. I have a dear friend who was over 400 lbs but lost over 200 lbs with Weight Watchers and has kept it off for years now. Now THAT is definitely inspiring for me. Add to that that she has trouble walking well due to a bad accident she was in many years ago.

Hey there ladies
I definitly understand the rude inputs from a mother figure. I had them from both mom and dad. They commented on other people ALOT and always wanted me to be on a diet or exercise more or whatever. Once I had hit puberty thats when I gained most my weight.
None of the nagging ever helped ( meanwhile they made me eat everything that was on my plate haha ! How ironic).
I do find that I comment once in awhile but I comment more on people who are almost to skinny. The whole bulimic hollywood makes me want to cry but so does the rosey odonnells or kirsty alleys. But hooray for kirsty she is looking good ! Have you seen her on people this past week !
Now that is an inspiration.

Juli, hooray for the inspiration!!!

I grew up with a mom who would make rude comments (not to the people) about overweight people and it always bothered me, but never as much as when *I* was particularly heavy and could have been someone she made comments about herself had I not known her. I finally confronted her about it but she claims she never did such a thing. (insert eye roll here)

Anyway, it's a weird motivation, but one of the things that motivates me is that I don't want to be the "fat" lady anymore. I don't mind being chubby, but I don't want to be obese either! I just want to blend in again.

I need to lose this weight and be healthy for ME and for my children, but I just don't want to be the fat mom on the playground anymore either.

It is hard not to judge other people sometimes - but it can be switched to a more positive thing if it causes you to see your own faults and make a change!!

Congrats on being inspired to focus on becoming a healthier person by changing to a healthier lifestyle!!

BELIEVE in the POWER of your DREAMS!

Hi Juli! I know what you mean, I have to watch myself judging people; not only in weight but in other issues.

I'd love to be a part of this inspiration thread!

Hello all
I know I have recently not been to active on this board but I wanted to give a shout out to yall ! I really do need support.
Today I was at a community dinner and there was this mother and father probably around my age. They were eating and their daughter who was probably a couple of years older than my son was eating next to them.
I realized the mother and father had to weigh about 350 lbs. each and the daughter at least 150 lbs. for a seven year old. My heart went out to these people./
Do they not know what this is doing to their bodies ? Do they not know what this is doing to their child ?
I so wanted to shake them out of their mouth feeding frenzy but instead I thought to myself. WHO AM I ??
Here I am abnout 100 lbs overweight and I am judging these people. I thought this could be my husband and I in 15 years :( if our health did not fail us entirely. Granted I am only 25 years old but to know that my kids may not have a mother or a father someday gave me inspiration.
So tonight I walk/jogged .8 of a mile before I had to get ready for work. I work overnights and will be starting back up full time college in two weeks. So I will be a little bit more stressed but I know for a fact that I am going to lose this weight I CAN DO IT !!!

IF ANYONE ELSE WANTS TO JOIN me and make this a discussion of inspiration let me know. I really want a forum that has inspiration not people who are .05 weight gain or loss everyday but rather people who just want to INSPIRE !

SO IF YOU are those people let me know LETS start this thread !!!
