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! (:

Ht. 5'3", Start: 200 lb, Today: 200 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Hello. I used to come to this website when I was younger and today I was filling really discouraged so I decided to look it up again. My mom and my sister are both tall and skinny and they both have been pressuring me to losse weight ans I want to do it myself so I can be healthy. Their so called support is not helping. 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.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 170 lb, Today: 125 lb (BMI: 22), Goal: 115 lb - Weighed in today ( I weigh myself every Saturday) down three more pounds. I changed my focus of my workouts to target my midsection as well as I changed my workout times up to 40 minutes. It is an 8 week program. I need more cardio though its hard because I live in Korea right now so the temperature isn't warm enough to jog yet but when it does i'll start doing that too. Lets go week 5 of my weightloss journey.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 202 lb, Today: 197 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 130 lb - I used to come on this site when I was about 14, and just rediscovered it today. I've recently become terribly ashamed over my weight, as I just stepped over the 200 lbs mark about a month ago. I've been overweight for the majority of my life, and I feel like it just holds me back immensely. I'm ready to finally get control over my life, and lose about 70 lbs to do so. I am 19 now, technically an adult, so I feel like it is time to become the person I want to be, and that starts with losing weight and gaining confidence.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 127.6 lb (BMI: 24), Goal: 115 lb - This was what I weighed this morning =(. It's such a shame when I've been steadily losing to start going back up again. Totally my fault though - my exercise regimen is non-existent and I've been eating what I want, when I want (which is a recipe for disaster, lol).
The upside to having to lose these pounds again is that it's hit me more than it ever has that this is a lifetime lifestyle I need to maintain. I can't just get down near my goal weight and suddenly start eating Ben & Jerry's pints of ice cream or having that extra helping at dinner, etc. and expect to stay slim.
I've re-prioritized and I'm going to start incorporating more of my previous methods back into daily life - mainly portion control, exercise and water intake.
It's nice to see everyone on here refusing to give up when a bad day/week comes your way. Makes me feel like I can be that strong too =).

Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 229 lb (BMI: 39), Goal: 170 lb - As I am reading through I noticed I am not the only one struggling lately! It has been really hard to get up to exercise and eat only until full for about the last week. I need to get a fire under my butt again to get moving. I am really getting angry with myself for not doing/working as hard as I should/can. Well as I get myself going again, I want to wish everyone luck on getting back on track and congrats to those who are still going strong :)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - totallllly fell off the wagon this weekend. i swear i had a food hangover... but it was mine and my boyfriends 5 year anniversary and valentines day so it was to be expected lol Anyway, no clue what i weigh still, i'm assuming still 165 because ive had my fair share of ups and downs but i really need to take this seriously, i would LOVE to be 150 for the summer. or at least IN the 150's.. i was 155 last summer and i felt awesome. Hopefully i can get my lazy butt in gear and crack down with my intake and exercise. we got a ton of snow sunday night and i spent over an hour shovelling the driveway yesterday. i am sooo SORE. it was an intense workout. anyways hope everyones doing awesome, good luck guys!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 170 lb, Today: 128 lb (BMI: 23), Goal: 115 lb - I have had my fair share of stare downs with the numbers on the scale my entire life. In fact, I started posting on this website when I was just 14, searching for help, for answers. Now I am back. I had my son last September and I gained a lot of weight... went from 115 to 170 and now I'm working hard to get it off. I am down to 128 but still feel like I am bloated. Don't know if anyone has a Kinect but if you do and need a motivator get the Biggest Loser game that goes with it. It keeps you on track as far as work outs go. I feel obligated to earn point everyday instead of falling behind. Anyway, I hope to make many more posts in the coming weeks to help other people out. Heads up!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 180 lb, Today: 139 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 120 lb - Hi everyone. I've gained a few pounds back, and I'm pretty discouraged. I've been excercising pretty regularly but I've been eating terribly. I need to get back on track!! I'll be graduating college at the end of May and I really want to be at 120-125 lbs. I just need to get motivated and back on track! I got new running shoes today, and I'm ready to start fresh on Monday.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 330 lb, Today: 323 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 170 lb - Well in order to reach my goal weight I must lose over 100 pounds. So far I have been doing the calorie diet and I've lost 7 pounds. Its really hard for me and frustrating because I dont know which diet to do! Ive been told that the low card, low fat, and low calorie diets are best, but with so many options I dont know which one to choose. Im getting really discouraged and could use some help ASAP! if you have ANY and i mean ANY advice for me please let me know.-OMI

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 232 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 135 lb - So i'm 2 pounds down and i've been in school for 3 weeks. It's kind of annoying because i've been workingout so much and so hard almost everyday and i felt like 2 pounds just wasn't good enough. But i am happy that some weight is coming of while i'm in school eating here is so hard because of all the fast food, but i've been staying away from it and controling my emotional eating. It's hard but my goal is to get down to a size 14 by the summer. Right now i can fit into a size 16 but i still wear a size 18 but it's really big on me. This is really hard but we all can do this =) good luck in everyone.
