    Hello, im Lee and im 18 Years old, I see mainly this forum is for women and im so sorry if i seem 'inappropriate' but yes, i am male. But i am way too large for my age, and i really want help where i can get it.

    I have tried to lose weight before i have been big since i was a toddler really, i met a girl which i thought would last forever, and well unfortunantly it didn't. When i first met her i lost alot of weight somehow, i dont know how it happened it just kind of did. We was together for 3 years and during that time i slowly slipped it all back on, about a month back she ended it. Basicly, i do not have the confidence to go out clubbing, beach, and even meet new people.

    So i thought maybe a forum would help , someone to talk to.

    Sorry for the long story!

    lol same as me then- I just meant were you on slimfast, or the cambridge diet or herbalife etc- so many things out there!!

    I think, for me the best thing is exercising and watching what i eat and HOW MUCH i eat- are you keeping a food diary?
    The best thing that works for me is that i write down everything i eat and drink in the day so i can see whats being consumed and then i weigh myself every week and measure myself, best way to keep track ;-)

    Dont worry about eating as less as you can, thats not the whole point, you can still eat good sized meals, just BETTER meals :)

    If you want any help or advice just ask x

    I know what you mean people say that me too (I'm 24) but it doesnt feel that way! Losing weight is hard and it doesnt happen overnight but it is worth it when you start to notice all your hard work paying off.
    Have you thought about taking up a sport or some form of exercise? that will help you bump your metabolism up and get you burning some energy? I swim and cycle (still being bigger i dont want to be around too many people in a gym so the cycling is great for me)
    I also drink alot of water during the day and keep a food diary, I would recommend you just trying something really simple for the first week- keep a diary, write down everything you eat and drink, maybe take some walks a few times a week or cycling etc, increase your intake of water and after a week see how it went :)

    You will get there don't worry! :)

    Don't put yourself down :-( Of course girls go for big lads- girls go for all sorts!
    The best thing for you to do is lose the weight for you, to give you confidence etc- a woman loves confidence and this is what you are missing thats all- Good Luck with it and if you ever want someone to talk to you know where i am!
