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.

Usually at the doctor's you're measured for the BMI scale, but that can't tell you much. It's just used to show that people with sedentary lifestyles are overweight. People usually don't get measured for lean body mass (muscle), bone, or fat percentages. You can get it done at a gym or by a nutritionist though.
