For me, it goes both ways. I have always had a weight problem and in highschool I was always the fat girl. Thankfully I was friendly and outgoing so I never had a problem making friends.

The problem is, I (so I have been told) always had a really pretty face. I was so sick of hearing "if you could just lose some weight" blah blah blah. So I did everything I could and lost almost 100lbs between 2003-2004.

I felt so good, it was like a drug. I want to get back there.

I was 200lbs when I met DH, started working out agian and got to 170lbs. By our wedding I was 220, got pregnant at 250, stopped the scale at 297 before delivery and right now I am around 255.

I don't really diet though. I just try to eat well and we don't buy processed foods anymore.

To be totally honest, I think we owe it to ourselves and our families to never stop striving for a healthier life. I want to live to see my great grandchildren being born, and I know at this weight it won't happen. To just "give in and accept yourself" is throwing in the towel and taking the easy way out. (just my opinion).
