Ht. 5'2", Start: 170 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI: 31), Goal: 130 lb - Hey everyone! I'm so excited to start out losing weight. I've never actually been this motivated to lose weight. Usually I will go to the gym for 2-3 days, and then quit, but this time things are very different. First of all, this is the first time in 2 years that I've had a schedule that allows time for me to get to the gym and still have some time for myself. The last couple of years I have been trying to fit work and school and homework and getting enough sleep, but it just never seemed like there were enough hours in the day! Not to mention all of the unhealthy college food that there is to choose from every night! I'm really dedicated this time though. I walked 3 miles on the track at my gym tonight, and for the past 2 weeks I have been alternating between this routine and walking 1 mile + 45 minutes of weight machines (usually 2 sets of 12-20 reps on each machine). I'm not ... (view more)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 205 lb, Today: 205 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 150 lb - Today I just realized that i weigh 205 pounds,the heaviest i have in my entire life. I knew that i gained weight but not to this extent. I weighed 180 last time i checked which was a year ago. I have always been on the chunky side even with my height but now ive gone too far. I had a really tough year and have just endulged myself with food because of stress. I am now determined to eat healthy and start excercising more to get it off. I hope i am determined enough to do this

Ht. 5'2", Start: 164 lb, Today: 164 lb (BMI: 30), Goal: 120 lb - I'm tired of gaining and losing weight. I used to be a healthy 125 pounds and I would like to go back to that. I usually get motivated for a week or two with working out and eating healthy and then I just give up and stop. Its really hard for me to lose weight. I really need some help in figuring out the best cardio and the best eating habits to see the best results. Please feel free to put in some input. I really want to be healthy and lose weight and feel happy in my own skin.

I also bought a digital scale today (mine is old from a yard sale and isn't accurate, so i usually go by what my moms scale says.. which isnt often because i live on my own with my boyfriend) so hopefully by tomorrow ill have an accurate weight (hopefully lower than 165, otherwise ill be angry lol) anyways hope you are all doing well. Come on guys lets get this board going lol good luck!! :)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - So i haven't lost, but i am happy to say i haven't gained. for the past 2 weeks I've been eating like a pregnant woman (no, I'm not pregnant lol) and haven't gained a single pound.. but starting yesterday i have quit smoking pot (i know drugs are bad yadda yadda but it was more to relax me at night, stress from work and all) and every time i quit for a while, i lose weight fast. so i know that will help. Also, I will be working out at LEAST 3 days a week doing 35-45 minutes of cardio/dance videos. I know I can do this. I want to be 150 by christmas.. at the most 155 by then. I'm excited to start over and I will be quitting smoking cigarettes September 1st as well. I'm doing an overall health overhaul haha. Anyways, I hope you are all doing well. Keep your eyes on the prize guys :) Good Luck!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 215.9 lb, Today: 215.9 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I have always been overweight but 2 years ago I decided to do something about it and I lost alot of weight. I went down to 168lb and it was amazing. The slow continous weight loss kept me motivated and I was so happy. Since then it has all gone wrong. I am 215.9lb god that was hard to admitt to myself. I decided that today was the day and again I failed. I cant seem to start once I am loosing weight I am fine but starting is the hard bit. I went for a walk todayh 4 miles to be exact and it nearly killed me but then I came home and ruined it all by eating a huge dinner.How can I get myself back on the right track. I need help please,

Ht. 5'5", Start: 187 lb, Today: 187 lb (BMI: 31), Goal: 135 lb - All I can say is PLEASE HELP!!! All through H.S I weighed 140-150lbs I thought I was heavy but.... I was happy with myself when I look in the mirror I just found this site searching for answers out of desperation. I've spent over $1,000US on books DVD's and personal trainers. I'm on the verge of hitting 200lbs and I don't want to for my height that is too much and it would DESTROY my confidence level. Someone if you could give me some motivation. I went shopping yesterday for the first time in a long time I used to wear a 9-11 in juniors and an 8 in misses now I wear a 15 in Juniors and a 14 in misses. I'm so down.....I'll look over some of the sucess stories hopefully to help me from NOT eating at all! (LOL I wish. I couldn't stop eating if I tried haha) have a great week you all and I'm glad I found this site. :)_

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - Hey guys! I haven't been on here in about a month. I used to post on the teens board but no one ever answers me (i guess im too old .. lol) but now that I see this board has some more activity i think I'll stay here. Anyways, I moved out with my boyfriend July 1st, and since then its been hard to lose weight. we have a massive amount of stairs to go up everyday, so ive noticed my butt has lifted and toned lol but i haven't dropped any weight yet. But luckily, i got my workout dvd back from my parents place (Shawn T's Rockin Body Workouts.. same dude that does Hip Hop Abs) I LOVE IT. i lost 5 pounds in a month while cheating on occasion in may by doing his workouts (5 pounds is a lot for me, since im nearing my goal) anyway, i wanted to get back into it so i started doing it again. i was soooo freakin sore but it feels awesome. I really want to be in the 150's by christmas, that would be amazing... even like 158 would shock and astound me lol Anyways sorry for rambling, hope you guys are doing well! :)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 206 lb, Today: 174 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 130 lb - Ok well in December I was weighed at the doctors at 206lbs, after my first semester of college. Then in February I got very sick, I couldn't eat and hold it down, and if by some miracle I did, I still ended up sick in another way (I know tmi),, my doctors never did figure out what was wrong with me, and i dropped 30lbs. I don't have many cravings.. except for when I get hungry at work.. I work at mcdonalds... I have finally realized that I need to bring my own food to work, after 3 years there... My problem is exercising I move back to school in 2 weeks and I will have the use of the gym, but I keep making up excuses to work out before then, and I know when I get back I will be too tired, and too lazy... what is a good motivational tip

Ht. 5'5", Start: 291 lb, Today: 291 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - TO AMANDA - I think the reason Im not losing weight is that I have a lot of toxins in my body. What are you doing to detoxify your body? Do you think Juicing is good using vegetables and fruits... I really have to juice my veggies in order to stomach them... I can just hold my nose and swallow ... lol
I gained like 10 lbs and ive been in the gym almost everyday (except saturdays and sundays). I think that means there is a major problem with my body chemistry.
But actually I see a difference in my clothing... Im looking much more fit and in the gym im moving much faster but I need this fat to go away and stay away. This is about me I carry alot of weight in my limbs (thighs and arms and in my butt too) But my torso is kinda very small Im like an hour glass/pear and I dont really look obese thing is i am says the BMI chart. So Maybe the detox will help me with my thighs and arms. and how long is it anyway? And what fruits and veggies do you recommend?
