Ht. 5'5", Start: 205 lb, Today: 205 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 150 lb - I went to the doctors today, my PCP she weighed me told me 205. which wasnt too shocking to me because i went to the gyno 2 weeks ago and she told me 208, i'm not sure which one is correct so i just assume 205 it sounds better :) i started college two years ago and weighed 186, not too bad but not good then all of a sudden it jumped, i went from being able to see my toes when i stood up to not even being able to button some size 13 jeans i bought in sept of 08. now i'm a size 18 and cant see my toes nor can i fit into any old clothes.my doctor said 'well you know about your weight right? its nothing new to you? " i said right beacuse before she had told me im done growing vertically and i'd just keep growing width wize and i should be around 150 lbs. she said its alot of belly fat and im putting myself at risk. i know im overweight and i've gained quiet a bit but i feel comfortabl inmyself but i guess i'll try to loose some.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 265 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - I am frantic about something, and I'm hoping someone will be able to give me some real information. I gained abou 80 pounds over the course of about a year (very fast), and have horrible stretch marks ALL over my body. Not joking...stomach, sides, arms, back, breasts, hips, butt, behind the knees, even on the top of one of my shoulders! I am only 19, and I want to be able to feel good once I've reached my goa weight. However, I am terrified that the amount of stretch marks I have means my skin has no elasticity and won't snap back! I don't want to look like I've had six children before I turn 20! I drink water, I exfoliate, I moisturize...but I'm TERRIFIED I'm going to be saggy. Has anyone experienced this? Should I be legitimately worried? What should I do?

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 160 lb - Hey everyone. Well I'm back once again. I just can't seem to stick with it anymore. I mean, I've lost 55 pounds already, you'd think I'd be able to lose another 10 right? Wrong. I got down to 163lbs in September and it crept back. So basically, I've been 170 and under and back up again for the past year and a half. Not happy about that at all. But hey, it's a marathon, not a sprint right? I've done pretty well today, had some vegetable soup and tofu and a little bit of frozen yogurt (bad i know but i counted it into my calories). Christmas is days away so it's probably not the best time to start dieting again but I figure, I'll do well for a couple days, take a break Christmas day and then go back full force. My birthday is January 17th and I'll be turning 21, and I'd love to be lighter than I was on my 20th birthday. Right now I'm the exact same weight so maybe by then I'll lose between 5-10 pounds (I hope!) Well, I hope everyones doing well. remember we can do this. Good luck :)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 191 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI: 28), Goal: 150 lb - I was eatting junk everyday! It was tasty and yummy for me before my diet. I had a wake up call, I have found out that junk has lots of extra sugar that I do not need. I'm going to a gym for 2 hours a day and dancing at home for 30 mins. I had find this is the best way.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 260 lb, Today: 295 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 100 lb - Okay so this year I was a freshman in college. I've gone way past the Freshman 15 and onto the Freshman 35. I don't know what to. All I feel like doing is eating and eating. We even have a gym right across the hall from me and I have no desire to go workout. All I feel like doing is eating!!! Does anyone have any ideas about how to help with this Freshman 35 and still gaining??

Ht. 5'10", Start: 264 lb, Today: 220 lb (BMI: 32), Goal: 175 lb - so, in college- i completely avoided the freshman 15, and lost the 40lbs my freshman year. now a junior, i have just been stable with the weight. its really hard when you have a fulltime job, school full time, and little money to spend on the 'healthy' foods. winter break is coming, and i feel i can actually get back on board with working out and eating right. to all, i hope you get your goals. its time to make time for my health to get in line :)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 155 lb - okay so I'm a total yo-yo dieter clearly... i was on here a couple weeks ago and i dropped down to 165-166 and now im back up to 170. go figure lol but my friend gave me a free 30 day membership to an all girls gym which is awesome, and i went for my first workout today. it felt great :) i'm going to try and go as much as possible in the next 30 days and hopefully lose around 8 pounds (or more, if possible) because i need to bust out of this cycle of getting down to 165, then going back up to 170. getting sick of it. hope everyones doing well :) keep at it

Ht. 5'7", Start: 181 lb, Today: 178.4 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 147 lb - I started my current attempt to lose weight a month ago today after going on Blubberbusters for the first time... and I've only lost 2.6 pounds! I let myself go over the last two weeks... I was down to 174.8 but got lazy and greedy and now I'm so frustrated with myself for undoing good work! It stops NOW though... I've set myself two rules this week: 1. Cut junk food back to one portion every other day and 2. No eating after 7.30pm

Ht. 5'7", Start: 235 lb, Today: 235 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Well, I'm an average sized girl in heighth and looking at me you wouldn't think I weighed 235 lbs. But I do. and I'm soooo tired of bagging around this extra weight.
I use to be fit, I was in sports and I was healthy still a little chunky but I was healthy. I love working out but I just don't find the time for it and I hate working out by myself.
I'm really determined to lose at least 30 lbs by spring break.
I'm ready for this diet committment but I would LOVE to find someone that can be my diet buddy. If you're interested my email is courtnienm@hotmail.com.
Hope to hear from you!
