Ht. 5'2", Start: 239 lb, Today: 219 lb (BMI: 40), Goal: 145 lb - So..I first came across this site a couple years ago when I was meeting my goal weight of 145. Well over the past 3 years I was diagnosed with a medical condition that was making me pack on pounds again!!! I was completely horrified to see the scale go back over 200 pounds because the highest I originally weighed was 202. So now I am that plus some and slowly getting it off. I have to do a low carb low sugar diet and am having some troubles finding things I can eat on the go, or things I don't get tired of quickly. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Ht. 5'7", Start: 260 lb, Today: 240 lb (BMI: 38), Goal: 170 lb - So I am officially down 20 pounds!!! Feels good. Despite my cheat day and my slip ups today. That goes to show you that for long term weight loss results, in my opinion you should allow yourself one cheat day a week. It helps you stay on track by the fact that you won't feel deprived plus the high calories for that day with shock your body and cause it to work burning those calories because you figure the other 6 days you are normally eating low calories. My opinion and it seems to work for me. I wish everyone continued success its hard and a long process but it well worth it.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 180 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 140 lb - So I used to use this site when I was younger and trying to loose weight. I met my goals and then some crazy family things happened and I had to become the parent of my two siblings and I began to gain the weight back. So now I am back at the point where I was 3 years ago. I have access to a gym at my college and I am trying to start to work out again. My biggest issue is eating the right foods. I am make dinner it is easiest to just make something quick and unhealthy, and to top it off healthy food is a bit more expensive. I was just wondering what cook books people use and what supplimnets people use that seem to help them?
Thanks for all your support and help.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 170 lb, Today: 126 lb (BMI: 22), Goal: 115 lb - Damn baby weight is like a friend that doesn't get the hint they aren't welcomed anymore. I gained a pound but I think it's just muscle. Been stuck at 126 for 2 weeks. I've fallen off the wagon a little bit. I had pizza today and chocolate the other day. Next week its supposed to be warm ... going to start to jog, what I need is cardio

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 229 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 135 lb - I wieghed myself yesterday and 2 pounds gone!!!!!! I am soo happy i was stuck at the 230's for about 2 months and now both of my size 16 pants actually fit. I'm only 14 pounds away from losing a total of 50 pounds it's been 9 long months with ups and downs but i'm really proud of myself for not giving up on something that in the past has always hold me back. For everyone out there who feels like giving up this isn't easy but we are all strong enough to make this happen. Take it one day at a time and keep your long term goal in mind but remember it'll take time and you may fall but just get back up because picking yourself up is what will make you complete this. Good Luck for the rest of the week guys and thank all of you for your tips and sweet comments =)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 195 lb, Today: 309 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - Hi, I'm Rachel. I hate the word "fat" and had always claimed to everyone I wasn't fat, just big-boned because I was too scared to face the truth. I really have gotten fat. I hadn't weighed myself for several years until 2 days ago, and was startled to see the weight I've gained! I eat whenever I am not occupied with something else, and lately this habit has become even worse. I am almost always eating something, usually fast food. After learning about my startling weight gain, 195 to 309, I really looked myself. I barely noticed how large my stomach has become. I can no longer fit in most chairs, and have to purchase 2 airline tickets because I cant fit in a single seat. A few weeks ago I was flying to see my grandparents, and it was so so embarrassing. I tried to fit myself into one seat, but I just couldn't! The button on my jeans (which, apparently, are too... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 239.8 lb, Today: 186.7 lb (BMI: 32), Goal: 135 lb - so i've had some diet success and thought i would share what works for me.....
1) I eat 3 small meals a day on a six inch dessert plate----> instant portion control,and i still satisfy my need tofinish my plate.
i eat slow, enjoy what i am eating,and don't go for seconds!
2) this is kinda weird but when i first started dieting i took my bed and my sofa out my bedroom no where to be lazy and you won't be lazy i literally slept on the floor for 5 months to break me of the lazy habits. it's not coomfortable at all believe me you won't be chillin on the floor lol
3)i honestly lost all the weight up until this point without "exercising" i just move extra....when no one is looking i do little dances or stretch or tap my hands or swing my legs, it adds up i am sure cus i never had to enter a gym or step on a treadmill. the weight fell off lol
now that i am in the 180's i want to start moving and toning so my next endeavor is to run. i am starting a walk/run/jog plan that hopefully will speed up some weight loss-----> i wanna hit my goal by august!!!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 224.5 lb (BMI: 39), Goal: 170 lb - Well I had my official weigh in last Thursday and I wish I could say that I am happy with my number but I'm not. I am happy that my weight is still going down but i kinda wish it would go down quicker. But I guess it just means I need to work a little harder, which I am prepared (not happy) to do. Since I am about to go into month three of my journey I am going to bump up my cardio time from 40 minutes to 45 minutes. And kind of off topic but good for you to know the new Special K Cracker Chips are delicious! Plus you get a huge serving size (27 chips!) for only 110 calories. So if you are a chip eater try them! :)
Ok, I will stop yapping, hope everyone is doing well on there journey :) Good luck!!!!!

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 232 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 135 lb - So in one month i've only lost 2 pounds. It gets me very angry because i've been working really hard in the gym. Since i'm away in college it's hard to know exactly what i'm eating but i have decided to start counting calories to keep my eating in check. I really want to get out of the 200's 33 pounds to go and hopefully i can get there before June but for now i just want to keep losing even if it's only 1 pound per week. Well i hope everyone is doing well good luck this week everyone =)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - So i've decided to take a different approach. rather than trying to lose the weight as fast as possible, i'm just going to focus on 1 pound her week. That way it will come off slowly and stay off. I don't care about only losing 1 pound per week anymore. because if i think about it, i'm in college and working and trying to pay off some debts so really, just sticking to 1400 calories a day will make it easier on me, rather than constantly figuring out how i can lose 5 pounds in so many weeks or days. i'm just going to eat sensibly and wait for the weight to come off. each module for school is approximately 2-4 weeks long. so for every class i finish, i will lose between 2-4 pounds. This way i can focus on my school work and strive to finish each module knowing that by the end i will be down a few pounds. weird method but it works for me lol hope everyones doing great

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 125.6 lb (BMI: 24), Goal: 115 lb - 2 lbs. down from my previous weight, thank goodness! I swear, I feel the difference in gaining and losing a couple of pounds now. My mom always tells me that the key to successful weight-loss/maintaining is to not let it get out of hand, specifically: "you gain 5 pounds and you get it right back off". It's a good standard because it's kind of like, don't let yourself get so far out of your healthy lifestyle that you just allow the pounds to slowly start creeping back on indefinitely.
There's another 5k coming up in mid-April that I'd really like to train for. Unfortunately, as much as I loved running while I was doing it, I don't have the motivation to get out in the morning cold to start back up =(. Ahh well, I'm going to have to push past that uncomfortableness and just do it.
Hope all's well with everyone!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 227 lb (BMI: 39), Goal: 170 lb - Well the last two days have been awful for me. Although life happened and I didn't count my calorie intake I didn't let that get me down. Instead, I used my carelessness as motivation to do super today! I added some lunges, crunches, and some dumbbell exercises to my routine 40 minutes on the elliptical. I watched everything that entered my mouth very closely. I feel very proud of myself today and I hope the motivation that I feel today(which I haven't felt in a while) lasts a while longer. I am 1/3 of the way through my "time frame" in which I hope to reach my goal. Although I know the chances of actually losing 57 pounds in 100 days is not very high but we all can hope and strive for something great. All in all I will be very happy just to be in ONE-derland :) Good luck to everyone, this week will bring you one more week closer to your goal :)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 281 lb, Today: 275 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 125 lb - Whoa whoa whoa, this is the first time I've ever posted in the 18+ board. I just turned 18 on the 12th so... here I am. I thought it would be interesting to post here instead of the teens board. I haven't really been to this site in awhile and I have not been eating healthy at all lately or exercising. But I did just have a really good workout... I'm hoping to get back on track with eating well and exercising consistently. Let's hope I can do it. I'm sick of being obese. Good luck everyone! (:

Im going off to college in about six months and I hoping to reach my goal. I would just like some help from those who know what how I fill. Please everyone fill free to leave me advice on how to reach my goal. Thanks.
