Is your existence physically painful? There's always talk about the mental and emotional struggles of being above a healthy BMI but I rarely hear of the physical distress. What's it like having everyday be a physical struggle? Why isn't the physical pain enough for you to start eating better and exercising? I understand the motivational problems but I'd think there'd be a point where you just need to change.
Also, anon, you don't have to lose weight for people. If not for society, friends, and even yourself, then get better for your own physical body. You don't have to become a super model, but just enough to let the heart and body slow down and start working at a normal pace again. I wish you a great journey if you decide to try losing weight.
The satisfaction from post-exercise is great. The worst part is realizing you're a fat fuck when your clothes don't fit you anymore and you check the scales and find you really let yourself go.
I've lost 2kg so far, been slow, but I hope I'll make it.

Do not do pic related. It's fucking horrible and you'll lose all motivation in a week. Better go to gym or swimming or running for 30+ minutes than do one of these "5-10 minutes a day" shits. These fuckers are hard to follow for longer than 2 days and will absolutely not have the results you'd expect from such an annoying piece of shit program.
5'9.5" and 146 pounds, probably 18% body fat? i need to lose another 10-12 pounds of fat before i start weight lifting and bulking. i'm pretty disgusted with myself.
18 months ago i was 180 pounds. i knew i was chubby. 13 months ago i was 210 pounds. i knew i was fat but i didn't really process it until i looked at pictures of myself. i guess i'm trying to say that when you get depressed, you tend not to pay attention to yourself.
I was 439 pounds at one point and life was extremely physically difficult. I was always out of breath and even the simplest tasks would make me tired.
I'm currently down to 335, and even though I'm still fat, life is so much easier. I have so much more mobility. I cheated though and had
gastric bypassbut I still exercise 6 days a week and eat heathy.
I fee bad for obese people who lose a large amount of weight on their own, since the odds of keeping the weight off long term is around 5 percent without medical intervention.
