Ht. 5'6", Start: 230 lb, Today: 228 lb (BMI: 37), Goal: 165 lb - hey, i'm kinda new to the board, but i really want to start losing weight, and figured i'd try this out for support and what not to see how it works for me. i haven
t officially started my diet yet, i plan to tomorrow. i just recently had my gallbladder taken out last week due to gallstones, and hoped that this surgery would help sort of jump start my weightloss from a lack of appitite, but it just hasn't happened. Does anyone know of some great beginner videos to watch that keep you motivated and interested? or any tips or suggestions?

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 145 lb - so, two weeks later im the same weight, but i measured myself and ive lost an inch around my waist, and half an inch around my chest. none around the hips but thats cool because im pretty lean in the lower body. im not very curvy, so id like to keep what hips i have lol but yay! just because i dont see a change on the scale doesnt mean im not losing. id like to lose another 4 inches on my waist, making me more hourglass shaped. something lame happened though, i hurt both my ankles working out (i wasnt wearing shoes and it involves a lot of jumping and twisting around) and now the nerves are sore and it hurts to stand or walk for too long, so im gonna take it easy and then when im okay to do my videos again ill wear proper footwear. this sucks though, i feel lazy. oh well! hope everyone is doing great.

It helps to keep me focused and stay accountable. Check it out....
Good luck to everyone

Ht. 5'2", Start: 170 lb, Today: 168 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 135 lb - Ehhh. Last summer I did so well, and lost like 15 pounds. It was great...but some how that 15 lbs hunted me down and latched on. Fantastic. I really want to lose like, 10-15 pounds by april 16. But I know realistically I will prob lose like 10 at the MOST. I just want to be able to wear CUTE outfits...its frustrating to shop when you are a little bigger. Good luck everyone!

Haha sorry its been crazy with school and sorority stuff and going on these weird random road trips but hey here I am! Gained a few back but what r u gonna do. I'm so determined to get in the 160's now I can taste it so no slip ups this week! I'm starting yoga on top of my other cardio that I do so maybe that will help and at the very least it should help ease the stress in my life. Lets see here is the intake for today and tonight... Bfast-yogurt w/ granola and a peice of whole grain toast Lunch-turkey sandwich on wheat, 100 cal pack, and an apple Dinner- whole grain pasta and a salad then like I said yoga and then hopefully 1/2 hour of cardio. Oh another cool thing my gym I go to has going on is that starting on Wed they are having a competition on running 50 miles in 50 days and I"m in it so woo woo! Haha seems pretty easy but at least it will motivate me to hit the gym everyday. Well hope everyone is fabulous!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 171 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 150 lb - alright so i gained a pound or two back, i havent been paying much attention to dieting lately.. no biggie though. ive lost it before i can do it again. my sister and i ordered Shawn T's rockin body workout (its the same guy that does hip hop abs) and we took a look at it, and it looks pretty easy to follow but also a good workout. we're starting on sunday or monday because we have a wedding to go to on saturday which means food and wine. it came with a 3 day slim down program and a calendar telling you which workouts to do for an entire month. we're going to follow it for one month and see what happens. i believe we can lose about 10 or more pounds following the program, so ill keep you guys posted. i hope everyone is doing well. good luck guys!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 179 lb, Today: 162 lb (BMI %tile: 79), Goal: 140 lb - Hey guys. I decided im gonna post on this board from now on (im not actually 18 until march though). Im so frustrated at myself. I've been working out 3-4 times per week for the last 3 weeks but i havent lost any weight because i've been too lenient on myself with junk food. I have gotten to the point where i wont allow myself to get hungry because im scared that if i do get hungry i will end up binging. However, i am going on holiday on June 25th and i'd really love to be at 140-145 lbs by then! Today i went shopping and tried on some bikins and let me tell you...i was disgusted by the way i looked in them. From my waist down i am really wide, have a huge bum, saddlebags and cellulite all over the place. I really need 2 to shift this weight or theres no way im going to feel conifdent in a bikini. For the next couple weeks im gonna aim to eat 1500 calories per day and continue to work... (view more)
