Ht. 5'6", Start: 225 lb, Today: 225 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - Hi you guys......Today i decided that i'm tired of being as big as i am, and so i have decided to go to the gym. The problem is that i don't like going to the gym because i feel that its only skinny people that go there, and i feel like they are going to stare at me and just look at me weird, or think that they are better than me because they are thin.
I have not been able to loose weight because i'm so scared of what others might think when they see me walking my dogs, or doing excersise at the gym. I am just not confident, and i need help. And it gets me so frustrated that i think this way.
can anyone give me some advice?!?!!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 168.6 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 160 lb - So i decided that posting my goal weight as 150 kind of makes me feel like i've got so far to go, so my mini goal is now 160. I think this way it seems more attainable. I recently started a job at McDonalds... now I know what you're thinking... temptation. But really, I havent eaten there at all and never really feel the urge to. Once you're back there in the kitchen it really doesn't seem as appetizing. I usually only have diet Coke when i'm working. It's weird, most people would gain weight working there but I've actually lost almost 2 pounds lol Hope it continues. Good luck everyone!

Ht. 5'0.5", Start: 215 lb, Today: 215 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Hey Everyone. I've been overweight ever since I was 6. For the longest i have been trying to lose weight. I see a different in a weeks time, but then i slack off. 2010 is a new beginning for me. Im about to graduate in June and i would love to shed several pounds by then. My best friends are pretty and skinny and it bothers me when they say they are fat. According to the charts, im 85 pounds overweight and at risk of heart problems. I need to take control of my life now. Hopefully i can find a buddy on here so we can help each other. My name is Stephany and im overweight :)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 175 lb, Today: 152 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 130 lb - Hey everyone. i use to come here when I was 14, i lost a great deal of weight just from everyones inspiration and motivating tips. now it is six years later. I joined the Military because i always wanted to. but i never thought that you could be fat and be in the military. sorry to those of you that get offended i know my weight is not at an at risk level but it is when you think about how much working out i do and how much stress i put on my body being at this weight and not losing it. i do not want to end up have destroying my joints just because im a little heavier then i need to be also by the military standards i am a fat female even though i have some muscle i have a lot of extra fat. my main concern is on my diet but as i drop so pounds i will be implementing a lot more exercise if any one has any feedback or even examples of their diets and food plans they use i would really appreciate it.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 168.8 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 150 lb - woohoo! broke out of the 170's (yet again..) but this time i plan on STAYING out of it. lol my first mini goal is to get to 165 again, so i've got to lose another 3.8 pounds, which i believe i can do within a week to a week and a half, then my second goal is 163 (the lowest weight ive ever been) and then onto 160. I know I can do it this time. I have to. If i don't do this I'll end up maintaining for the rest of my life, which while it is good to maintain, its not so good when i'm clearly not at the weight i want to be lol hope everyones doing great, good luck and keep up the good work!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 150 lb - okay sooooo, let's start this again lol. 2009 was a terrible year. I mean, nothing totally horrible happened, but I wasn't happy. I wasn't at a good place in my life, hence why any weight i lost this year, came back (i gained 7 pounds back). 2010 however... will be different. I'm FINALLY going to get down to my goal weight of between 145-155 (depending on how i look at that point.. its really too soon to tell) and STAY THERE. No more ups and downs, no more "I'll start tomorrow". I'm going to do this. If i really want 2010 to be a great year, I'll need to focus on my weight loss and healthy lifestyle more. It's not even so much a vanity thing for me anymore, I mean yeah I'd love to look great in a pair of killer skinny jeans (who wouldn't?) but I'm turning 21 in a week, and therefore I am officially an adult. (they say its 18 but mentally i think it's 21) and if I want to live a healthy... (view more)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 209 lb, Today: 209 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 160 lb - So I've been overweight for a while, but I was never really THAT bothered by it. But I was looking at my pictures from New Years Eve and I realized that I don't look as good as I thought I did. So I want to start losing weight. I'm joining weight watchers on tuesday because that is when the first meeting starts. But I feel I should probably start working on it now. I need massive help with motivation. It's just so hard to say no to all the junk food. I am in my second year in college. All my friends are pretty skinny but all eat really bad. I have to buy and cook my own food. It's so hard not to pinch in and get some take-out with all my friends or junking out on fries after a night out. Also, we go out a lot which means I'm drinking a lot of alcohol which is also very fattening. I just don't know where to start. I would really appreciate some advice :). Also I would love a weight loss buddy, I feel that would really help. My email is gotsports101@surewest.net, drop me an email. Thanks everyone :)
