Ht. 5'7", Start: 155 lb, Today: 179 lb (BMI: 28), Goal: 145 lb - Last time I checked I was 178lbs. I gained about 20 lbs in a matter of 7 months. Im not sure how I did. It is terrifying and I decided I didnt want to look at the scale yet. I just want to do my best with eating and exercising and then I will weigh in a couple of weeks. I also have a lot of other decisions to follow through with. I am trying to quit drinking and smoking as well. i just want to feel better about life. I have actually been on this site since I was 14 and I know how much support there is here. Thank you in advance and I am so glad they made an 18+ board.

Ht. 5'10", Start: 398.1 lb, Today: 327.3 lb (BMI: 47), Goal: 250 lb - In this study I've learned allot about who I am what I can accomplish and the dedication it takes to make a change as significant as losing weight. Yes there have been times when it would've been nice and easy to give up and call it quits and in those moments I've been able to push through the struggle and reap the rewards of accomplishing and overcoming the doubts in my own mind. There is always a need for motivation and positivity, you can never have to much motivation. If you ever find yourself in need of motivation realize this, you have come so far from when you first started. Even if you haven't loss much weight, think about how you felt before and how you feel now physically. Even if the signs of weight loss are not just physical or numerical it's also internal. How I feel inside as well as the outside are two different things, yes I've lost weight but I feel 100 times better than... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 260 lb, Today: 230 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Day 1: Today I was looking at wedding dresses, I don't have a boyfriend or anything, but I really want to finally feel pretty, and feel like someone finds me attractive. So I have decided to try small steps and see if I can get anywhere. So task for today is to reduce meals to the size of the fist, and see if I can do that without a problem for 4 days and see if my weight changes.

BUUUUUT...I'm going to try this getting fit thing once more! Eating clean and working out it is. Everything is possible. I am so close to my goal weight. I have decided to hide my scale for a while. The numbers were starting to dominate me.

Ht. 5'10", Start: 398.1 lb, Today: 369 lb (BMI: 53), Goal: 250 lb - In this journey we call life there is always going to be times when you feel like things can't get any worse, there is no motivation and your about 2 seconds from giving up. If you ever come across these moments, and everybody does, there is one good way to overcome the overwhelming feeling if blah. Think for a minute what it would be like if you quit, really think about what your quitting on, think about how far you've come think of all the goals that you have been accomplished, think about the positive changes that you've made and how much better you feel overall because of it. And once you remember those amazing leaps and bounds that you've taken think about how much of it would go to waste if you quit... There are going to be times when you struggle and there is a time to rise up dust yourself off think of all the positive that has been done and has yet to be seen in your life stay... (view more)

Ht. 5'10", Start: 398.1 lb, Today: 374 lb (BMI: 54), Goal: 250 lb - There are times in life when it seems like the uphill battle has become completely vertical and the thought of accomplishment has long been forgotten. It's at these times when we can show ourselves how strong we really are. Michael Jordan had the best game if his career when he had the flue. In each and everyone of us there is a fire that is waiting to burst and ignite the passion and drive that we need to continue on. Whenever the odds seem like they are stacked against you remember that fire, and fuel it with the desire to overcome and achieve great things. Losing weight is that uphill struggle, there will be times when nothing comes off or the results are not seen physically. Any goal that is physical has to be won on a day to day basis, it's a war that is made up of daily struggles and battles, and if those battles are won than in the end you will rise victorious. Each person has... (view more)
