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.

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. 5'1", 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!!
