Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 132 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 115 lb - I found a new website: www.caloriecount.about.com
It's a really good way to keep track of what you eat, your exercise and it has a forum section where members can post and reply to various topics.
Just thought I'd let you all know, in case you're interested =).

Ht. 5'4", Start: 220 lb, Today: 193 lb (BMI: 33), Goal: 145 lb - Hey everyone! I recently made the decision that I want to lose this weight and get into shape (I need to be at least under 160 lbs) and enlist into the Air Force. I'm really excited for that, but I need to buckle down and really work at it. It's a great motivator.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 149 lb, Today: 152 lb (BMI %tile: 86), Goal: 125 lb - So school started, and for the first 3 weeks I got down to 140, I was super excited everyone was complimenting me on my figure and how good I looked. I hated the compliments, I didn't want to gain the weight back. Then I got voted onto homecoming court. Me on homecoming court, I was s excited and I granted it all to the fact I lost 20 pounds. I got the cute tight fighting dress and all. But that wednesday, 2 days before homecoming, I started binging again, and beating myself up again which lead to more binging, I gained 3 pounds on homecoming night, luckily the dressed still fit. That weekend I kept binging and beating myself up over it. I have been trying to suppress this for a month, but now I have gained 12 pounds, and I just don't know why I still overeat when I have the oppurtunity t say NO!! I guess maybe subconciously I do not think... (view more)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 134 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 115 lb - So I'm still training for the Thanksgiving 5k this year. I've increased the distance that I walk/jog, but I'm not really feeling my stamina building. When I run, I'm still going the same speed and I can do about the same distance before I have to walk for a bit. The only thing I'm noticing is that I start to catch my breath more quickly when I'm walking so there's less time between my walk:run ratio.
Does anyone have any tips on what I can do to help better my time (I'd like to make it a 30min. 5k)/increase stamina?
Hope all's well with everyone!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 340 lb, Today: 340 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 250 lb - Hey everyone! I used to come here a long time ago but haven't been in forever. What I'm ultimately looking for is someone - age, gender, etc don't matter - who has about 100 pounds to lose or more who would be interested in being "diet buddies." I just need a little support. If you're interested, let me know & we can exchange emails. Please be willing to be in contact a few times a week. Thanks!

You're my worst enemy.
You're my best friend.
You judge me everyday.
You're no means to an end.
I step on you all the time.
But somehow you always put me in my place.
You're there for the good times, and the bad.
You've seen me at my best, at my worst.
At my past, at my present.
You've become family to me.
Something to depend on.
When everything else cracks.
You stand strong.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 135 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 115 lb - 135 lbs. as of this morning. It's great to be able to see my successes and failures on an open forum - I'm more accountable that way.
Over the weekend, my husband and I went to a couple of other stores where I tried on clothing to see where I'm at (haven't bought anything new in a REALLY long time). Found out I most comfortably fit into size 5-7 jeans/trousers and s/m tops. Good news for my upcoming shopping expedition =)...bring on the Thanksgiving sales!!
I never thought I'd get to this point and still don't really feel like I'm there (brain hasn't caught up with my weight loss yet, I suppose), but if you're struggling, don't give up - it's such a 'worth it' feeling later on.

I haven't gone crazy like i use to but i haven't been eating the best foods and i have been working out 5 times a week. I haven't gained weight which is good but i haven't lose any ethier which is bad. It's been a whole month and it worries me because i should've got the hang of this but it's so hard. I stay away from unhealthy food as much as i can but sometimes i just give in please help with any words that you can give me thank you guys so much for being there this website has helped so much because no matter what goes wrong in my diet or whatever i never think about giving up =).
P.S. Just got the Never Say Diet Book by Chantel Hobbs i'll let you guys know in my next post if i have time to read it lol how it goes thank ya so much =)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 136.2 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 115 lb - This is unbelievably slow going. I've been doing the same things as always: drinking water, running every day, eating healthy, etc. and NOTHING seems to be working!
I just increased my running level from 2 miles to about 3.5-4 a day, so maybe that'll jump start the weight loss again.
I'm at a point where I don't know what else to do to get the rest of this stubborn weight off. I just want to get to my goal weight and go out to buy new clothes since nothing in my wardrobe fits properly.
I guess I'm just venting at this point. I know what will take the weight off and I'm doing it faithfully - I'm just stuck and it sucks!

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 136.6 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 115 lb - Soooo, I don't think I've seen this number on the scale since my elementary school days =P.
I really, really hope I can reach my goal weight before I leave in December. It's a stretch, so I'd be happy with 125 or less, but still, it'd be nice to be the weight I'm SUPPOSED to be.
Hope everyone's been doing well with their weight loss =).
