My name is Michelle, I'm 23, and I've been struggling with my weight for about the same number of years.

I'm sitting at work, at 260 pounds wondering how I could let myself get this far in the hole. Right now I'm looking at pictures at when I was 225 (when I first joined SP at my 'highest') and 190 (when I lost a good chunk of weight), wanting to be that weight again.

I think I'm just so unsure of what I am truly capable of. My self confidence and self esteem are very low and I'm just so scared of failure, in every aspect of my life. I've been in college for 5 years and just feel like every failure I encounter is more of a reason to just give up. I've gained 70 pounds in the past 3 years and that's just crazy!

I can't stand being overweight/obese anymore. (Oh gosh just typing out the word 'obese' turns my stomach) I feel like I'm weak and not capable of being healthy and losing this weight... but I know I am!!! I just have to utilize everything available to me and surround myself with positive thoughts and new habits.

    You have perfect perspective. I guess guys don't see all the imperfections us women see so I will take it as a compliment. My ultimate goal is to get down to 180 pounds. Hope you don't mind that I Spark Friend.

    Thanks for the message on my blog!
    I have to say when I was growing up mine was the opposite of yours. They actually would express concern about my weight every time I went to the doctor from the age of 5 on up and his response? It's just baby fat. She'll grow out of it.
    Um...still waiting for that to happen and I'm 48 emoticon

    Thanks for the comment on my picture. It's amazing to see how much certain weight losses are in the things you can pick up. It's so much easier to be able to put down the weight that way.

    Keep up the great work!
