Hello everyone. I'm 18 years old, and I'm around 5'2'' 5'3'', and I weigh about 185. I made this name especially for diet communities, because I find this sort of topic a bit embarassing.

So far, I've tried the hollywood diet, Zanthrex-3, and Slim Fast. I only noticed a slight difference in weight with Zanthrex-3, and I ended up losing a small amount of weight in roughly a week due to it.
I've gone days without eating, only to realize it doesn't help much. I'm certainly not one for vomiting, so I'd never puke up my food as a means of losing weight.

I do want to lose weight for this summer, not a lot, because I do understand it's a long process, However I'd like to be able to wear shorts or a tank top and not feel paranoid. I haven't worn short sleeves or shorts in about four years.

Right now I'm desperate. Does anyone have tips or suggestions on ways to lose weight in a short amount of time? I've just started cardio, so I'm hoping that will help. I have an indoor bike I use and a regular one for outdoors - both are used frequently.

Also, does anyone have any good information on Trimspa or CortiSlim? I wanted to try Trimspa, but a lot of people seem to be talking about CortiSlim. I hope I'm spelling that right.

Holy Crap. In the last few months I have managed to gain back half of the weight I lost (I lost about 20 lb. or so overall a couple years ago) and I have several pants and shirts I can no longer fit in or else can't fit in comfortably. I can't afford to buy new clothes and I don't *want* to have to buy any. School starts up again August 24th and I'm afraid I won't have anything to wear. It's already a struggle just to find things to wear now. I don't know how this happened. All I can figure is that I've been eating out a LOT this summer. :::sigh::: I need your help, LJers! I don't care if I just lose water weight as long as I lose *inches*. What can I do for a quick (albeit probably not that healthy) weight-loss? I have the Firm and DDR as far as exercise goes . . . but I don't know how often I need to do those for results. Obviously I need help with eating as well. I need to go to the grocery store and buy food and make it myself since food at restaurants has sooo much more calories and fat in them. It's just really hard to find time and energy to make food. Please, please, please-- any advice is very much appreciated.

hi! i'm new here. i'm almost 16. i'm not happy with my apperence/weight. i've had symptoms of anorexia in the past but i've never really had the disorder. (does that make sense?). anyway i joined because i want a healthy and quick way to lose a few pounds and tone my muscles. i'm not "overweight". i just know i can be in better shape. i'm 5'10", if anyone of you know the "ideal" weight for someone that is that height and has muscle, please share. =)

I was once Belimic and lost so much weight I was hospitalized and fed through a tube. When I was in the hospital I didn't care what my size was, I just wanted to be healthy again. Now that Im healthy, I want to be slim again. I am a size 7/8 right now. I want to be a size 5 by July. I'm scared to go back on my laxative diet. I've been thinking about starving myself, but I can never go more than 3 days. I have a show July 17th in front of 6,000 people with some little girl just signed to Alicia Keys new label. I want to look hot. Ashanti hot. I just weighed myself. 128 lbs. *puke* *sighs* I feel like crying. I don't know what to do, I need to get my weight under control. Sometimes I don't care, but if I want to be a star, I have to look good. It's so depressing people.

Ok... my actual dieting progress has been slim to none, but i really wont get into a real diet until i get home in a few weeks.
But in the mean time i started at the gym yesterday...
i was suprised how much i was able to do, but i need encouragment to keep it up...
I easily give exercise and diet up...
but yesterday i did a mile on an elptical machine and a half mile running on the treadmill, and a little bit of abs. And i have plans to go again today with a friend of mine. I really want to go at least 5 days a week until i leave school so i can already be in the excerise mind set before i go home. I've heard that the first 21 days of eiter diet or an exerice program are the hardest, anyone agree with that?
good luck to everyone where they're at!

Just a short post really to thank everyone that has joined so far, and that I hope you're all getting whatever advise and tips from other members who're having the same problems as yourself.

So lately I really haven't bothered with dieting at all. It's not that I haven't wanted to, I've just ignored it and forgot it.
Yesterday, however, Scott (my partner) and I went to Alton Towers (the biggest Theme and Attraction park in England). We took sandwiches, but with all the excitment of the day, we didn't eat them. Instead, the only thing I had to eat through the entire day was a hot dog with some sauce on them. After that hot dog, we proceeded to walk up a very large, and very steep hill (rather than catch the cable cars).
Once to the top, I was panting and out of breath, and looked so red faced in the mirror. Though after I'd sat down for a couple of minutes to chill, I was still feeling hot and bothered, but also good, knowing I'd done a fair bit of exercise then without really intending to. Not to mention all the walking round we'd done that day too.

Once home, we ate the sandwiches for dinner, which also felt good because they weren't a stodgy, huge meal before chilling out infront of the TV time.

I guess the moral of the story is to walk up the hill rather than catch the bus (in my case, cable car) if you're on a diet. You'll feel a lot better at the top!

hiya, i'm new thought i'd make my first post...
i'm in my second year of college and as long as i've remember i've had issues with my wieght.
as young as i can remember, i know that i was told i should be on a diet... even though i was over wieght as a young child, this has totally warped my self image...
So now i'm 20-year-old female, who HATES how she looks...
i'm looking for a healthy excises and diet that if it works could help me gain some of my lost self...
my goal wieght is around 125
right now i think (no scale so i cant be sure) around 150-160.
my mother right now is doing the South Beach Diet, and when i get home she wants me to do it with her... (she says she's lost a lot of wieght).
Anyone on that diet? what do you think of it? what was the hardcest part?

Calculating in bed this morning, I figured that I could lose around 50 lbs safely in 5 1/2 to 6 months, if I keep myself going. And then, why would I stop working out? I love working out. By that time, I will be addicted again. (I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie.) My big problem right now would be starting again and KEEPING IT UP. I have a real hard time getting back into it. Not only that, but I quit in December, after lots of progress (I think I might've overtrained, tho). I left for the holiday, gone for a week or so, and came back started up again, but lost it after about a week.

ARGH. But! Since the safe amount to lose per week is 2 lbs. I can lose 50lbs in 6 months. (during the first 2 weeks, weight loss is elavated due to fluid-loss)...

Okay I HAD to post this.
Maybe it'll help me!

I am what I would call extreem dieting curently I have been binging and purging for about 5 months now.. for at least three months I did not keep one thing down. Mostly because I was having cmplications with my galbaldder and it was inpossible to keep things down.. I had my galbladder removed and I did not want to stop. It had just become so easy and over the span of the 5 months I have lost 58 pounds. I am very happy with my progress.

So I am not sure if I am anna or not but I have had issues with food my enitre life.. I use it as a comfort. I am now finding much more power not having to relay on food all the time. I am hopping to make freinds here and support one another. I also would love any help you could give me and I would love to help all of you in anyway I can. Thank you for your support in advance I have found so much insperation reading you posts...

My day. [05 Mar 2004|10:57pm]

[ mood | blah ]

So I had ordered this digital scale that measured tenths of a pound. It was shipped via UPS. Since I live on a college campus, UPS is weird with us. When we get something shipped by US mail that's bigger than an envelope, we just get a little card in our box notifying us of it, and we show our student ID and the card at the campus post office desk and they retrieve our package for us. UPS will sometimes call and get you to come drive out to their place out in the boonies (and nobody I know, knows where it is). I'm thinking, "What's the point of ordering something off the Internet, if you still have to go get it?" But anyways, so I went and asked the post office ladies about it today and that's what they told me - that since it was UPS, it maybe Monday before I'd get any calls or notification about my package because UPS wants to deliver to a dorm room, which isn't an address. I always use my campus mail address, so that doesn't work for them apparently. Hmph. So...after I'd waited to eat (because I thought I'd get up, go to my psychology experiments and then grab my package from the post office, run back to the dorm, pee, strip down naked, and then weigh myself), I decided that since the damn thing wouldn't be here for a couple of days, I'd just eat some peanuts from the vending machine, along with drinking a couple of diet cokes. I go to another experiment (there was an unexpected time gap between the two psych. experiments - I finished the 12pm-1pm survey at 12:09, so I didn't want to wait around for almost an hour), come back, and the scale is there, and it also is NOT the scale I ordered. It's a regular digital scale that doesn't measure tenths of a pound. I go to Weight Watchers meetings at least every other week, and since WW's scales measure by the tenth, I just wanted one, too. It's really no big deal, but I was just kinda miffed that I'd ordered something specific, paid for it, and gotten something different. It's easy to find the regular digital scales; I could have gotten someone to take me to Wal-Mart and I could have purchased one for a cheaper price, minus the shipping & handling fee.
Also, since I had munched on peanuts and Diet Cokes, I sort of sabotaged my own weighing, ROFL. So, I figured the hell with it and I ate the cheese off a few pieces of pizza and my roommate ate the bread. After this, I peed, stripped down, and jumped on the new scale. It said 178, which is down 2 pounds from my last weighing, which was 180.

My roommate has decided (I didn't even try to convince her!) to join me and start the South Beach Diet tomorrow. There are quite a few people who are on WW that seem to do SBD for awhile and love it... :) I'm so happy! She said she'd go tan with me, too. Hehe. Wow.....Anyways. That's that. I'll post tomorrow and let you guys know my *true* weight (in my little world, "true weight" means "the weight of your body when you've just woken up, haven't eaten or drank anything, have peed, and are naked.").

I haven't posted in awhile. But I just thought i'd update on my weight training class i'm in. We've been doing cardiovascular workouts, IE: stair stepper, bike, tredmill and lots of sit ups with the rowbar and the ball, I love it I can tell a difference in my abs. Also, i'm finally starting to get a little toned/muscular lol =)
Just thought i'd share my happyness, oh yeah I took a pic I was so excited about my legs/stomach
