Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 241.5 lb (BMI: 41), Goal: 170 lb - It has been 10 days since I started my new life and it is hard. I woke up this morning thinking I DO NOT want to get on the oliptical machine. But, I got up and did it anyway because being overweight is a lot harder than getting on that machine everyday for 30 minutes. Controlling my calories is becoming more natural rather than a struggle so that is good. I think the next step I want to take is exercising 30 minutes at night too. So overall I have been feeling better, I have not had heartburn once since I started my new life and I am very thankful for that! Good luck to all on your journey :) Kayla

Ht. 5'4", Start: 155 lb, Today: 155 lb (BMI %tile: 86), Goal: 115 lb - Hey. Im Theresa. I probably havent been on this site since I was 14. I use to go by Tag or Tagatha if anyone remembers me from that long ago:). I got down to 107 pounds four years ago but since then have kept gianing. I love the support you get on this site so I decided to come back. Ever since I lost a lot of weight I gianed it all back. Lucky for me I havent gone back to my heaviest weight of 180. I remember feeling so self concious when I was 13 because of that and being made fun of a lot. I am in college now. At the start of college in Septmeber I was 142.4. Now I am back up in the 150's. I decided to start a diet with low carbs and fats and eat mainly fruit. Well I am here if anyone wants to talk. I also love hearing feed back and giving support. xoxo Theresa

Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 242 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 170 lb - Here I am on this site once again! I used this site to help me lose weight before but was unfortunately unable to keep it off.
I am 5 days in on my new journey and so far my spirits are high. I am really coming to terms with the fact that food addiction is real and that I suffer from it. For so long all I could think about is food, I lived my day by what are we eating for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I had a real bad habit of purging at night when no one is watching.
After I watched the series premiere of "I Used To Be Fat" on MTV I decided to challenge myself. I want to lose 90 pounds by June 1st. I think I want and need it so much it is absolutely achievable.
Best wishes to all of you on your weight loss journey :)

Ht. 5'9", Start: 325 lb, Today: 325 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - Does the Calorie diet really work? If i do decide to do the calorie diet does the calories depend on the type of food or the number? Ex. does it matter if i pick a burger that is 440 or a salad that is 440??

Ht. 5'4", Start: 218 lb, Today: 218 lb (BMI: 37), Goal: 160 lb - Hey guys, I have had many different weights in my life. Right before my senior year in high school I did weight watchers and lost 27 lbs. At that time I was down to 180. I loved my weight then but I wanted to lose more so that is why I set my goal weight as 160. Then school started and I didn't stay on my diet much and then it was Thanksgiving and then my birthday, then Christmas, then New Year's and by that time I had gained some of my weight back. I graduated and went on my senior trip, started college and I was finally at my highest weight ever, which is where I currently am at 218. My New Year's Resolution is to start back on weight watchers since it worked so well for me the first time and I plan on walking at least 5 days a week. I know a lady who went from being a size 20 to a size 5 in one year because she started going to a... (view more)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 185.6 lb, Today: 185.6 lb (BMI: 28), Goal: 150 lb - Well this start this up again. I've always been up and down with my weight. I've been as high as 200 and as low as 150 in high school and college. Right now I'm finishing up my senior year in college and I really just want to finally get control of it and control of me. My major downfalls are that I binge eat at night after not eating all day because I'm running around between school and work and all that jazz that I do. I also drink a good amount. I'm just a social butterfly so I'm out with friends. But again when I drink it goes hand and hand with eating more when I get home. I don't eat fast food hardly at all but I do go out to eat a good amount. I'm also pretty active but I just have to be consistent. I'll go to the gym 6 days in a row then take a week off. So I'm back to use this again to almost use it as a food journal so I can hold... (view more)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 200 lb, Today: 194 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - I haven't been here in probably about 5 years, and in those years I've definitely seen some extremes in my weight. During the summer I reached my highest weight, 210lbs. But, after 4 months at college, I'm down to about 194 and it feels great. It sounds cliche, but I want to start off fresh with the new year. Any help with motivation and tips would be appreciated. Good luck everyone!

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 127.4 lb (BMI: 24), Goal: 115 lb - So, I've been running in the morning before work since the time changed because it's too dark by the time I get home in the evening. I run before I eat breakfast and I was just wondering, is that the healthiest way to do it or should I be putting food in my stomach first? Every time I've eaten breakfast first, I find that I don't have as much energy/stamina during my run and I tend to cramp. Is it unhealthy to do it the way I prefer though? ....10 days to the 5K and counting =D

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 129.6 lb (BMI: 24), Goal: 115 lb - 3 weeks until my first 5k! I'm so excited and really hoping I can hit my target of running it in 30 minutes.
I've decided that my immediate weight loss goal is 125 by Thanksgiving. I'll be trying to maintain during the holidays and lose those last 10 pounds after the New Year.
Hope everyone's doing well!
