Ht. 5'11.5", Start: 280 lb, Today: 262 lb (BMI: 36), Goal: 220 lb - Hey guys,
A neat idea to help out with Thanksgiving is to have it buffet style. Have all the food in another room, like the kitchen then everyone dishes their one plate of food and then everyone eats in a different room. Try to get everything you want on that one plate because it'll be easy to overeat if you go back for more. Lastly, try talking with people around you, don't focus entirely on the food. The more conversation you're making the slower you're eating and more likely to not overeat. For dessert, either have your mom or someone else dish you some or only take a small plate through the buffet of dessert.
Good luck guys with thanksgiving and I hope you don't feel stuffed.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 162 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - Well this sucks. I've been struggling for the last 5 months (since my boyfriend and I moved into our own apartment). I was 153 when we moved in, and ive gained about 9lbs since. BOGUS! I think it's because we hardly ate when we were at his moms, because she never did groceries and we'd eat out 1 meal a day and not really eat anything else. so for the 2nd time in my life I lost and re-gained the same 10lbs because I went about losing it the WRONG WAY. I'm determined to get back down to 153, and even lower to 150 so I can be comfortable in my clothes again!

Ht. 5'1", Start: 165 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 31), Goal: 120 lb - Hi I have been struggling with my weight since I was 10. Since that age I have always been considered obese. For a while I succeed in eating healthy with the correct portions and exercised daily but saw almost no results. The 10 lbs I lost were gained back along with 10 more pounds. Im going through this cycle where I work so hard loose a few pounds get dissapointed and then gain back the little i lost plus more. I just need any advise i can get other than dont give up. Im sick of looking in the mirror and seeing my stomach hanging over my jeans and huge thighs. Im disgusted by my image. I need to find motivation somewhere. Help :(

Ht. 5'5", Start: 173 lb, Today: 149 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 130 lb - Just a random piece of information I thought I would share with you all. It may be helpful for those of you who are trying to lose weight to record your measurements rather than simply rely on a scale. I would get very discouraged when I would step onto my bathroom scale and the numbers wouldn't budge. Once I started taking my measurements using a measuring tape I could see the inches drop even when the number on the scale would remain the same. I was able to see that I was losing fat, but I was also gaining muscle. My added muscle was the reason the numbers stayed the same for so long. I have only lost 12 pounds since January, but that does not tell the entire story. Using my measurements I can calculate that I have went from 42% body fat to 26% body fat. This means I have changed 29 pounds on my body. I have lost 12 pounds of fat and gained 17 pounds of muscle!
Any ways, I ... (view more)

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?

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!
