Ht. 5'7", Start: 155 lb, Today: 183 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 165 lb - Hey everyone! So i haven't been on this site in about 5 years! I used to come on all the time when I was younger and weight around 200 pounds. Since then I went down to around 155 just through eating less sweets and stuff and doing exercise. At the end 2009 I was at my lowest weight of about 155, and I felt so good! But study and work got in the way and I was eating HEAPS of junk food and went up to 198, a couple of months I started going back to the gym and atm im down to 183 but i want to eventually get back to 150ish. Im setting smaller goals so it doesnt seem like such a huge amount. Im going to try and post my food and exercise every few days just to try and stay motivated because thats my biggest problem. I can being doing really well for like 2-3 weeks then all of a sudden i just stop and think its too hard so I need you guys to help keep me on track :)

Here is a great site to help you with your eating...I recently bought the Hungry Girl recipe book "300 under 300" which is 300 meal ideas for 300 calories or less! You can buy the book on Amazon.com for rather cheap! The site has other features that are worth looking at as well. Enjoy :) http://www.hungry-girl.com/

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 123.4 lb (BMI: 23), Goal: 110 lb - Hello all! It's been awhile since I've posted on here. Not much to relate. I've basically been fluctuating the same 5 pounds for about 4 months now. I finally seem to be moving in the right direction though so I'm quite happy about that. Not really sure where my goal weight will end up at this point. Anywhere from 110-120 most likely, depending on how I look. The family seems to think I'd be too small at 110, but then again, I've never been that size so who knows? Hope everyone's been doing well so far. Keep up the hard work all!!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 280 lb, Today: 278 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 115 lb - Guys, I am so sick of being overweight. It has seriously affected my life in so many ways and I despise it, but for some reason I cannot stick to eating healthy/exercising. I've been trying to lose weight since I was 12 years old and I've accomplished nothing; the only way the scale has gone is UP since then. When I was in seventh grade, I weighed around 200 pounds... that was about 6 years ago, and now I'm like 278. I've been at this weight(or just in the 270's) for a few years now. So basically, I gained like 75 pounds or so in just a few years. ANYWAY, I think I'm finally ready to accomplish my goals. I am sick of letting this affect my life so much, and I'm sick of being fat. If anyone has advice or tips, reply please and tell me? :) Thank you!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 237 lb, Today: 131 lb (BMI: 21), Goal: 130 lb - Hey Everyone!
I just wanted to remind you all that it's totally possible to lose the weight! It's hard and takes a lot of time & persistence but you all have the strength to make it! I am only 1 pound away from my goal weight after years of working at it...but it happened!
I'm currently writing exams, but once they are over expect to see me around more often to offer encouragement, tips & advice! :) Good luck to you all, you CAN do it..it's POSSIBLE!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 196 lb, Today: 196 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 190 lb - I was doing well and got down to 170 lbs. I don't know what's happened, I'm now living with my fiancee so I think I've just become so content with my situation that I am not worrying about my weight. But now my asthma is getting worse and I know that I need help - please can someone advise me and motivate me, I can't see things getting better at the moment :\ thank you x

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - my god i've been slacking. if i had stuck to my healthy eating and working out in january, i could be like 20 pounds lighter by now! so yesterday i decided to start all over again. so far so good, i ate 1200 calories yesterday and did 45 minutes of cardio, and today ive eaten very healthy but can't workout because i work until 10 and have class in the morning, but my job consists of standing and walking a lot and lifting etc. so i should be fine. If anyone wants to know how to calculate how long itll take to lose whatever amount of pounds in whatever amount of time, go to this website... http://www.cookingnook.com/calorie-calculator.html it even tells you how many calories to eat. i find it very helpful. well i hope everyones doing great, keep it up guys

Ht. 5'7", Start: 307 lb, Today: 263.2 lb (BMI: 41), Goal: 150 lb - So, I just looked back at my weight log and I was wondering how long I have been in the 260's. Well since November 27th! That is just ridiculous. It's my fault too, since I'm always going off and on with my eating healthy. I really need to get into the 250's, that's my main goal right now.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 319 lb, Today: 319 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Hey Guys
Just thought that if im going to start this journey then i may as well get completely stuck in and write a message as well. Today is the day i start a fresh and lose 180lbs. Its going to be hard i know but im hoping that each lb i lose will help me motivate myself further. By the way does any one know any easy exercises to start off with as i am very unfit and cant run :(
Well done to all of you out there who are losing weight keep going :)
Hanxxx

Ht. 5'7", Start: 307 lb, Today: 265 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 150 lb - Hi everyone. I used to post on this website many years ago. I decided to look for it again. I'm so excited to have people to talk to about my struggles. I'm really wanting somebody to talk to about weight loss. Where is everyone on here from? I'm from Indiana.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 226 lb (BMI: 41), Goal: 135 lb - so this week was horrible, working and school have made me very stressed which has caused me to eat. I know there should be no excuses so in general it's my fault. I'm so close to losing a total of 50 pounds and i'm just going to pick up the slack this week. I know how bad it was so i wont weigh myself now, i'll work really hard this week and hope that i can get down to atleast 225. LETS DO THIS LOL =)

Ht. 5'11", Start: 226 lb, Today: 179 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - Wow. School is almost over and I'll be going home soon. This is scary. Does this scare anyone else? I worry because I have made pretty good progress in my weight loss and am about 5lbs away from a "healthy bmi" but I fear that when I return home, my diet is going to fall apart. I've always been fat growing up and the food my family eats is very different from what has helped me succeed up to this point. I really have fallen into a groove. Eat my cal limit, hit 110 grams of protein, only "clean" foods, and 5-6 mealls/day. My family does not do this at all and it may make them upset. How have you guys dealt with this?

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 226 lb (BMI: 41), Goal: 135 lb - So i weighed myself sunday and lost two pounds. I am very happy that i'm losing weight but I get so frustrated that i'm losing the weight so slowly. I know that we should lose 1 to 3 pounds a week and i don't expect to lose 5 or 10 pounds in a week but 3 pounds instead of 1 would be good. Well i guess i just have to work harder it's been a very long jounrey in 10 months i've lost 39 pounds. I've had alot of set backs and thats why it's taken so long but i'm glad that i've learned not to give up. I've been dealing with this my whole life and this is the first time i've made it a life long change. I will change a few things in my diet to start losing at least 2 pounds instead of 1 a week. I wish everyone luck the rest of the week =)
