i have lost 30lb and everyone tells me i look great or what ever. But sometime i just cant see it. I still look at the mirror telling my self i fat. And its normal to think like that, but im learning now that im handsome and sexy in my own image. F*** those people that put you down. Go look at my instagram i have a really good quote that i put up yesterday. Instagram: __colombiano__ (two underscores)

Hey Rachael,I'm struggling with overweight for 3 years now, I'm an emotional eater so I can't stick well to diets, and I've noticed that exercising alone doesn't help. Neither does a too strict diet - I end up eating like crazy and gaining more weight. I also hate mirrors... I'm always surprised I don't look like I used to before... But since right now I have a lot of other stuff on my mind, I have to deal with this extra weight just being there. The first part of changing anything is accepting it the way it is. You can't change it overnight, anyway. And I agree with Shaddy: we're all so influenced by what we think we should look like and we compare.... but 300 years ago, round women were the pretty ones. No one wanted to look skinny. It's just our crazy culture of now... That said, you ARE beautiful the way you are! Losing weight for the purpose of health is never a bad idea, but give yourself time... try to eat healthy and your body will actually lose weight all by itself, and will drop to the weight you should be on. That might mean that your body is not meant to be skinny, we're all different. The most important thing is that you're healthy, in body and mind. Try not stressing about it too much, that certainly won't help. You're ok the way you are right now. Give yourself and your body time, try to be patient and loving with yourself, that helps most in my experience. And those mirrors, well. Ignore the fuckers, the image is distorted anyways ;) Good luck to you!

I'm a little overweight myself. I'm 5'3, and weigh about 207lbs. I hate how I look most of the time when I try to wear certain clothes, I try to exercise, and eat right, which is helping, but I don't exercise as much as I should because it isn't fun to do by yourself. Get a support group, with friends or family that would be willing to help you meet your goal. Get rid of all the bread in your house and only eat rice, or sweet potatoes for your starch for a little while. I did this and lost about 5lbs, even without exercising. You can find yummy and healthy recipes online. My favorite place is Yummly.com. Stay away from deep fried food and instant meals. Eat lots of fruits, veggies, and lean meat. It sucks at first, but after about two weeks its loads easier.You should also work on your self-esteem. Write kind notes to yourself, and even put sticky notes on your mirror for support. If you have a positive outlook, it will help you in the long run, and even help you lose weight as well!For fun exercise I love to play Kinect (Xbox), Dance Dance Revolution (Playstation), or the Wii. this are especially fun if you have someone to compete with. I once played the Kinect for 3hrs straight because I was having fun competing with my (also overweight) brother.Just remember in the long run beauty is what's on the inside the outside is just a mold to paint and decorate. It'll always be changing, sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the worse, but most changes are temporary, and if you don't like it, don't give up on working to change it! :D
