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.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 238 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - hey everyone the last couple of weeks have been so hard here. Being away from home and around all this junk food is really really hard especually when all your friends are thin and they don't need to think about what they eat. 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 =).

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 160 lb (BMI: 24), Goal: 145 lb - Okay so I slipped up over the last 2 months and gained 5 pounds back. Not a big deal though, I'll lose it again. I need to take this seriously because otherwise I'll end up gaining more and more. This guy I was seeing all summer moved back home (about 6 hours away, he was only here for college) and he wants to come visit me and vice versa, so I'd like to lose 10 pounds so I feel good about myself when we see eachother again. Not only that, but I want to be around 150 for Christmas because i always gain a few pounds around that time of year (as does everyone I assume) and i'd like to get as low as possible by then so it won't bother me as much. Also, it'd be nice to look good in family photos. I hope everyone is doing well, and keep up the awesome work :)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 139.8 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 115 lb - I finally (albeit slightly) broke the barrier! I'm really trying hard to hit 129-130 by the end of the month, which is a long shot, but maybe the muscle I'm building will help with that.
Hey, does anyone find it hard when losing weight to fit into clothes properly? I don't want to buy new things until I'm closer to my goal, but my wardrobe selection is shrinking rapidly so most of the time I still look like I'm heavier than I am because of the baggy clothes.
I suppose it's worth it in the end though. Can't wait to shock my extended family at Thanksgiving =D!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 170 lb, Today: 168 lb (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 150 lb - I havent posted on this site since I was 14 and I am now 19. I didn't realize it then but I was way too obsessed over my weight and getting on the scale. I am ready to get back on here and do it the right way instead of starving myself and looking at the scale every hour. I have overcome a lot in these past years and I dont know what drove me to this site again but I decided I would take a look.
This website really is great and I am going to continue posting.
I didn't realize how unhealthy my mentality was at the time. Now that I have worked on that, I am ready to jump back into a physical healthy lifestyle and be happy overall.
THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT GUYS!

Ht. 5'2", Start: 186 lb, Today: 203 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hi I wanna lose weight badly. So I started last year but did NOTHING and ending up gaining a lot of weight. I was introduced to lots of things on the internet so that's why I was so lazy. But I really want to get slim again. Drinking lots of water, eating healthy, walking. But it's just not doing anything, help? :/

Ht. 5'6", Start: 235 lb, Today: 229 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Hi everyone! I'm so glad I found this place, I've been trying to go it alone but it's so hard, I've only managed 6lbs in the last 4 weeks. I think it's just because I've been obese for so many years, it's really hard to break the habit of eating ALL the time, and the wrong kinds of foods. I'm soo ready to turn it all around now though! I'd love to hear your stories, and any tips you might have :) Good luck! xoxo

Ht. 5'7", Start: 194 lb, Today: 194 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 147 lb - I've been struggling with my weight all my life and have gained ten pounds over the last few months, putting me into the obese category :( My BMI is 30.4 and I'm thirty pounds overweight, but one day I would like to get down to 147, which means losing 47 lbs. I've a long way to go but I know I need to do this, I'm not happy with my appearance and also I'm scared of the health risks - I need to lose a lot of weight around my belly, it's 43 inches atm which I know is dangerous. I really want to lose weight as I'm starting college and want to be healthy and confident... it would be nice to have a motivational mate to email most days etc around the same age, male or female, with similar weight loss goals... I think it would help me stay on track. Comment if you're interested!
