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!

Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 238 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - Ok so i weighed myself today and i actually wiegh 238 which means i lost a total of 27 pounds in 3 1/2 months.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 140.6 lb (BMI: 27), Goal: 115 lb - I'm sick of the 140s!! This has been the hardest plateau BY FAR! It's weird too, because I've heard the hardest part of weight loss is the last 10-15 pounds, and I'm not quite there yet.
In happier news, my husband and I have been running pretty regularly to build stamina for the 5k in a couple of months. So nervous about finishing last...I hope there are people out there more out of shape than I am =D.
Hope everyone's doing well! I'll post again after I've broken the barrier.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 228.5 lb, Today: 224 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 144 lb - Hey everyone! So I've lost 4 lbs since my last post. I've started college again, and for the past few days, I've reverted back to my horrible eating habits. However, I have been exercising every morning. Now I'm going to really focus on limiting the amount of processed foods I intake. I notice that when I combine junk food and exercise, I get aching cramps that last for the whole day. I also get really tired. So now I'm going to make sure 85% of my diet is composed of healthy foods. I'll try to do another post next Wednesday. God Bless:)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 230 lb, Today: 230 lb (BMI: 41), Goal: 125 lb - Okay. So I'm ready to start losing weight. I just don't where to being. How should I change my diet? I'm not going to starve myself just because I want to be skinny. Which exercises I should start doing? Stop I walk/run? I can't afford a gym and I really want to prove to everyone that I can do this on my OWN. I'm ready to lose weight. I'm tired of making excuses.. I just need the support. Does anyone have any advice and tips for me just starting out? I hope this website has people who post on here frequently. For those of you who lost weight.. how did you do it? What did you do? I know.. so many questions!! :P

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 143 lb (BMI: 27), Goal: 115 lb - BROKE THE PLATEAU!!! It took forever, but I'm officially past the 144lb. mark I couldn't break through for about 2 1/2 months. If I can lose 3 pounds by the end of this month (one week), I'll still be right on track towards my final goal. Wow, I've always wanted to be this small, but I honestly never thought I'd get there - it feels really good =).
Anyone that's struggling, don't give up - it's definitely worth the fight. Do it for yourself, your loved ones and your future!!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 228.5 lb, Today: 228 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 144 lb - Well I've lost 1/2 a pound in the last 9 days since my last post. I really haven't changed my eating habits, but I did go to the gym this past week. I decided to commit myself to the Daniel Fast for 10 days, just to cleanse my body both physically and spiritually. I'm going to try to give updates every 2-4 days. God Bless everyone!

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 147 lb (BMI: 28), Goal: 115 lb - Ayyye! I haven't lost a SINGLE pound since I last posted...I keep fluctuating between 3 pounds either way of 147...frustrating!
So I was bored at work yesterday and looking for something to help me and my husband lose weight and do together and I came across a website called www.active.com. It's an amazing site where you can select a sport and search for groups in your area. It also provides tips for healthy living and exercising. We've decided to run a 5k to support a charitable cause....possibly two, depending on how we fare in the first one =D. I figured this way, it's not as unbelievably hard as a marathon (or even half marathon - yikes!) and you don't have to have any natural athletic ability to just jog/run.
Now all I need is to find us a training regimen.... =/

Ht. 5'8", Start: 228.5 lb, Today: 228.5 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 144 lb - Hi everyone. I've been coming to this site for about 4 years, and I've felt I was fat since I was 9. Now I'm obese, and my weight as really affected every aspect of my life. My grades have suffered (I just completed first year of college and failed 2 classes, withdrew from 2 more), I can't find a job, I look like I'm 40, and I've just altogether stopped taking care of myself. But now I'm going to fight off this weight tooth and nail. I know that God has a purpose for me in this world, and I'm not going to let weight, depression, negative thoughts, sugar addiction, or bad grades stop me from fulfilling my purpose. I'm going to try to come on this site every Thursday to update this journey. God bless to you all, and stay positive!

Ht. 5'9", Start: 220 lb, Today: 190 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 160 lb - I used to come on this site whenever I was younger, and I never really did anything about losing weight. I was a huge emotional eater, and I still struggle with it sometimes.
Since January I've been watching what I put in my mouth, and I barely saw any results until June whenever I went out and bought some Jillian Michaels exercise/cardio DVD's, started walking 30 minutes every evening and eating a healthy 1,200 calorie diet (three 400 calorie meals). It's been since June first, when I weighed 210 pounds, and I've seen HUGE results! I've dropped three pants sizes, one shirt size, and I'm starting to see muscle definition!
I wish all of you the best of luck with reaching your weight loss goals, don't let the little things bring you down!
