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!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 180 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI: 27), Goal: 155 lb - Hey everyone...
I used this site a couple of years ago when trying to lose weight, and here I am again. Back two years ago, I was down to 137, and unfortunately, I'm back up to where I started. :( I actually started out at a size 17/18 and got down to a size 7 or 9. Right now, I can wear a 13, though not too comfortably. I would really like to get back down to atleast 155 and wear a size 9 again.
My scale at home is a bit messed up, so I'm not sure at how accurate it is. I was surprised the other day when I got on it and discovered that it said I'm at 170. Usually it was around 180, including when I went to the doctor back in September, so I must've lost some weight somehow. Anyway, I've now been motivated to try and get down to 160 on this scale by Thanksgiving, and then hopefully work from there.
I'm trying to keep my calories down around 1200.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 169 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 155 lb - so i was doing extremely well, then got a terrible cold and was basically confined to my couch for 2 days straight. as a result,i lost track and ate a little more than usual. however, i got on the scale tonight fully clothed in jeans and it said i weighed 169. woohoo! tomorrow morning is my weigh-in so i plan to check to make sure, maybe ill be a lil lighter because ill be in lighter clothes and on a completely empty stomach. who knows. either way, i'm feeling a bit better so i'm going to start working out again. i also found another incentive to lose this darn weight once and for all. i finally finally finally picked a course i want to take in college, so i'll be going to school in the fall of 2010, and i'd like to look and feel my best to avoid any insecurities on the first day of starting a new school. i've got 10 months to lose 19 pounds (i'd like to start school at my goal of 150)...

Ht. 5'8", Start: 200 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI: 28), Goal: 155 lb - Here I go again I swear...ugh. Well I'm back for those that remember me and this time I will stick to it! Haha lets see a lil about me I'm 20 (obviously) and I'm a full time student- pry more then full time taking 17 credit hours =[- and I work about 30 hours a week on top of that so I'm pretty busy plus I'm a social butterfly and am involved on campus with research, VP of an organization and in a sorority so really I rarely have time to breathe but I like it that way. The downsize to it is I binge HORRIBLY because I'm constantly running around. I munch all day then when I finally get home at night and I sit and eat everything like its my last meal. My weight has stayed constant but I'm ready to get it off. I haven't weighed in in while so 185 is really an estimate. So here I am again back and ready to get things under control . Like I said what I put in my mouth is the main problem. I love to exercise but now I just have to find room in my schedule to make it to the gym. Hope everyone is doing well and I'll be back tomorrow to get this started once I really know where I'm at!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 205 lb, Today: 186 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 150 lb - So today i checked my weight and i was shocked because i thought i was heading off track. I was 190 for so long and the scale wouldn't seem to budge to the 180's until today. Gaining weight is soo much easier then losing it which is why this is so hard. A couple slip ups and you're back to where you started. My motivation is what keeps me going. All my friends are so thin, and it pictures i always look like the chubby one. For once i want to fit in and feel happy and comfortable with my body. Im starting to notice changes with my body so im excited about that. I hope I can reach my goal, i can't even remember the last time i weighed 150.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 155 lb - okay soo, i havent been on here since september 1st, and as a result i got off track. i was at around 163-165 and now im back up to 170. but its not a huuuuge deal, cause im cracking down again. i just really wanna be in the 150s for christmas. even 159 will suffice lol im so tired of this yoyo dieting thing. well its not really a diet, i just eat healthy and workout then completely fall off the wagon. it sucks. but not anymore. i moved back in to my parents mid september (i was living on my own with my ex, but we broke up so since being back here i just gave up) but i have a new bf now who is completely and utterly amazing and im so happy, its time to have the body to match. wish me luck, and i hope you all reach your goals

Ht. 5'2", Start: 170 lb, Today: 167.5 lb (BMI: 31), Goal: 130 lb - So I went home for the weekend and didn't do ANY exercise :(..there was just so much other stuff I wanted to do and had to get done that I couldn't find the time. But today it's back to the gym for me. It's so frustrating its been almost a month now and I feel like I've made no progress!! Yet I've been working out every single day and trying to eat better at school. A few years ago I was at my all-time highest weight (187) and have lost almost 20 lbs since but at the time I wasn't even really TRYING to lose weight, it just happened over time. Now that I am actually trying, I'm not getting anywhere...this is usually the point where I get discouraged and quit, so I'm really trying to work through this and stay motivated...any advice? good luck everyone!!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 212 lb, Today: 212 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 130 lb - Hey all! I discovered this website recently and thought I would give it a try, I just started college about 2 months ago and that 'freshman 15' thing has turned into the freshman 27 for me! Yes I have gained 27 pounds in two months. We have an unlimited meal plan and I have used it and abused it unfourtunatly. It's just so convinient. And not only do I over do it in the cafeteria, I am constantly eating in my room. It doesn't help that my roommate loves food and is overweight herself, so we are always buying snack and ordering pizza together. I'm not super stressed or anything I have just developed this love for food and I cannot seem to get enough. I eat until I'm satisfied and that seems to be when I'm stuffed to the brim. But I denied for awhile because none of my friends seem to have a problem gaining. Until I went to put on a pair of jeans I hadn't worn in awhile and couldn't button... (view more)
