    Weight loss needed/motivation lacking

    I am a 47-year old female who is 5'8" and weighs 240 pounds. I hide it fairly well. I mean, I don't look slender, but I don't look like I weigh 240 pounds.

That I don't deserve to have....

    Hi, I'm not used to message boards, but I had a question I can't find the answer to.

    gastric sleeve??

    My dr is suggesting a gastric sleeve to help me lose weight faster. I stand 5'5 and weight 285. In 6 months I have lost 55lbs and need to lose another 115-125.

    Why don't I look my weight?

    I am quite confused about my weight--I weight 182 lbs but look as I did in high school, where I weighted 150. I am a 22-year-old female and 5 foot 4; I work out frequently. The BMI says I'm obese but I don't look it at all. What's going on?
