Ht. 5'5", Start: 230 lb, Today: 230 lb (BMI: 38), Goal: 140 lb - I don't know how much I weigh, actually. But I do know I have been coming to this site since I was 13, and I'm very tired of thinking about weight.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 285 lb, Today: 285 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - I'm so tired of looking at myself unrealistically. I know that I'm overweight. It's obvious. My problem is as follows: On a good day, I see myself as stunning, beautiful, head-turning. And then I get disappointed when reality sets in and I realize I'm not getting the results I dreamed of. On bad days, I don't bother with anything. No hair-styling. No makeup. I regard myself as unworthy and sink into a sea of apathy. Even when people tell me I'm attractive, I scoff and shrug.
I know I can do this. I just need the motivation. I'm a natural stress eater, and I've got so much on my plate right now (metaphorically and literally). This hurts. And I can't keep doing it. I guess I'm interested in the accountability factor, so I'll post as often as possible. If you're interested in following my journey, I'll end each post with the following signature so you'll know it's me.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 168 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - I was good today! I had small portions, and had a good workout! I ran for 20 minutes, walked for 12, did tons of crunches, and different arm workouts with handweights. A good day :)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 239 lb, Today: 219 lb (BMI: 40), Goal: 145 lb - Well it has been another horrible night :( It seems like when I have a bad day at work my diet is blown. Then I sit and cry because I am completely unhappy with my body. I haven't worked out in three days! And I have done this before, I know how to loose weight...why am I having so much trouble this time?? My biggest issues are dinner and before bed. My boyfriend is a late night muncher and I just seem to follow, (knowing I shouldn't) I need some kind of motivation...

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 168 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - Just woke up this morning, and I'm already a pound down! In know it's probably water weight, but still! It's nice to see a positive change on the scale. I'm going to the doctor this morning too to have my thyroid tested. Has anyone else had experience with weight problems related to thyroid problems?

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 169 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - Hey Everyone,
I am DONE being overweight. I've struggled with weight my ENTIRE life, I seriously cannot remember a time in a life when I was comfortable with my body. I went shopping the other day and there were two mirrors in the dressing room, so I saw EVERYTHING. I saw the folds on my back, I saw all the unsightly buldges and lumps. I start college in August (6 weeks!) I know I will not even be close to my goal by then, but I'm hoping to lost at least 8-10 pounds in 6 weeks, is that do-able? I want to feel pretty, confident, and really take control of my life. I've been to this site before, but I am DETERMINED to stick to it this time! Please help me.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - so today i started the GI diet (for those of you who haven't heard of it, it's a diet where you eat foods with a low glycemic index rating, so foods that don't spike insulin levels. examples would be egg whites lettuce chicken veggie burgers, steak, fruit, etc) and so far so good. i wasn't hungry between breakfast and lunch which is a first for me. i guess its true the more sugars and carbs in the food the hungrier youll be shortly after. apparenty you can eat as much of the "green light" foods as you like, but id still rather count my calories as well in case i go overboard. i'll let you guys know of any weight changes in a week or two to see if this works as well as i've been told it does. good luck everyone!

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 227 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 165 lb - hey jus thought i'd share something with you guys just incase you havent heard of it. I was watching some videos on youtube and i saw that some of us are worried about lose skin. Well looking through p90x before and after they looked so good and some girls had given birth so they're skin was really stretched out. I got the program along with insanity and hip hop abs on ebay they are very hard and intense but they work magic along with a healthy diet. Just thought i'd share that with ya good luck everyone =)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 227 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 165 lb - hey everyone sorry i didn't answer about the weight loss competition i thought we should do i was away with some friends so i got a scale and idk if it's correct since it was just sitting around in my house but it says i weigh 227 which would mean i lost 7 pounds this month. I have some news i wont be able to be posting weekly starting the 19th becuase i got a job at a camp so i'm going to be away for 8 weeks. I will still be trying my best to lose weight becuase this is a life style i have to keep up forever so i'll still be working out and eatting right. For the girls that answered my last post i want a way for us to stay in touch this whole summer and keep at this because it's helpful when you must report yourself to someone soo idk how we would do this the more people that join the better lets make this summer happen with the weightloss guys no more waiting. for all those of you who ...
