Hi! I`m new to this community. I read the user profile and think this could be a good community for me. I have been thinking a lot about my wieght recently. I used to be 230 pounds. Somehow, I really have no idea how, I got myself down to 180. I guess my body changed or something because it`s not as if I intentionally went on a diet. I just started eating less. I never ate bad foods. I have always stayed away from sugary and fattening foods. I just ate too much of a good thing and never exercised. I was also depressed. This was when I was a teen and all moody and dark. I`m 22 now and so far from being moody and dark. I used to just hole myself up in a room and now I`m always making friends and out and about. I guess I just realized enough was enough and I was`nt going to allow myself to be a loner forever. I think I`ve been pretty lucky in life. I can only think of one time in my entire life where I was ever truly made fun off for being fat. It was some comment about Jenny Craig or something. Everyone has always saiid I carry my wieght well. I guess that`s why I escaped the fat girl comments. Now that I`m 180 I`ll admit I look a lot better but the truth is I feel worse. I used to be fine with my wieght. I never stood in the mirror and loathed myself. Now I do. All I want to do is get down to 145-150. I`m 5`8. I don`t think that that is unrealistic. I just can`t seem to get down to my goal wieght. It is kinda depressing. I`m determined to loose the wieght though. Anyways, I`m rambeling. Just had to get it out.

ok so we have to be twins. I'm 5'8 as well and weigh around 230. I never get comments for my weight either but when i see pictures of myself im like ewww...thats me? I mean I can fit in teeshirts size L and XL in most teenage clothing stores and i wear a size 18 jeans with a belt (because i like my jeans a little baggy) I am big bones and carry my weight well is what people say . I want to be 150 some kind of bad too. Everyone tells me it will be too small for me but i really will feel way better. How are you thinking about getting down to the weight you want/

I know! I want to be 150 too. I`m at 185 right now and it looks alright but I still think that 150 would be perfect. Oh and we are the exact same size.
