Ht. 5'11.5", Start: 280 lb, Today: 274 lb (BMI: 38), Goal: 220 lb - Hi,
I didn't know this was active. I need some help motivating myself to go out. I did a little longboarding two weeks ago before I fell twice and broke my helmet.
I'm doing a weekly kickball game but that isn't enough. My university gives me a free membership to gym but it's far away and I'm not in that area for a lot of time.
Any suggestions?
Sulay

Ht. 5'7", Start: 321 lb, Today: 316 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - I just recently started my weight loss journey three weeks ago and its been really tough! Its been hard to think positive about it all when my family is skinny and I feel like they don't really understand what I'm going through even though I know they try.
My doctor introduced my to this site and I'm hoping it'll help.
Does anyone have any advice on how to keep positive about it?

Ht. 5'4", Start: 207 lb, Today: 207 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - I've been on and off this site for years. I get down to 160 every summer and pack on the pounds in the winter. Met the boy of my dreams a year ago and became too comfortable in the relationship. Signed up for a gym membership this summer with a personal trainer. Hope to be 180lbs by the middle of August! Love you all and keep up the good work!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 203 lb, Today: 165.7 lb (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 130 lb - Hi everyone! So, I remember using this sight at the beginning of my weight loss and it really helped me to stay motivated; however, I guess I got too cocky and stopped using it, thinking I'd be just fine. After a couple months of struggling and plateau-ing plenty of times with my weight loss, I am certain and better prepared to lose the last 35 lbs. I'll be starting college as a freshman in August, so im hoping to reach my goal by then or at least by the September. My plan is to workout 3x a day, running in the morning, doing a workout video in the afternoon, and then doing some toning exercises at night. I've heard ppl say that keeping a food journal really helps, so I'm going to start that and see how it goes. As for eating...well i have MAJOR work to do on my diet. I'm going to try to incorporate lots of veggies and fruits, as well eliminating a lot of manufactured foods. It's gonna be It's hard, but I'm looking forward to it. :)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 203 lb, Today: 203 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Okay, I've always been overweight. I was always the bigger girl in my group of friends. It's always bothered me, but I was never motivated to make a change because I had always accepted myself for how I was. I am happy with what I look like, but I do want to be healthier. I just lack motivation. Maybe someone could give me tips or become a workout buddy! I need someone to keep me motivated,or help with it. I have asked my friends to, but it's harder for them because they're a lot tinier than me and they don't want to watch what the eat or work out. Lazy bums. Lol. I thought it might be easier if I had a friend who was in the same boat as me. Well anyway, any and all tips appreciated!

Ht. 6'0", Start: 320 lb, Today: 312 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 190 lb - I was first introduced to this web site in high school, but now I am serious about losing the weight. I have lost 8 pounds so far but I have a long way to go... But I have a major sweet tooth so its hard to fight that but I am trying to find substitutes for that. Wish me luck!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 195 lb, Today: 195 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 140 lb - I've been overweight all my life. I'm reaching 200lbs and it's driving me crazy! I feel ugly, fat and round. I have such low self-esteem that I haven't gone out with friends in months; I'm embarassed. My goal is to reach 140lbs by December. I want to show people that I am beautiful and beyond my looks, there's so much more to me. I'm slowly working up a diet and an exercise plan.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 275 lb, Today: 250 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - I have recently lost 15 lbs due to some medication, but i am at a standstill and need to know what to do? i walk about 2 miles a day, and it is a quick pace and i try to eat right but most the food i have is canned or processed because it was either cheaper or from a food bank. Is there any tips on how to have a healthy diet from that? or other exercise tips?
