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 :)

I'm so glad to find someone with the same height and about the same weight as me. I'm 5'8" and 209 lbs. I know I need to lose weight but I don't know how to get started. I'm in college and all my friends are skinny but still eat badly. It's so hard for me to say no to all the bad foods. What kept you focused and motivated? thanks
