Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 169 lb (BMI: 26), Goal: 160 lb - okay so I've come to the sad realization that no one really posts on here anymore. Not to mention, no one really posts on other peoples posts. Kinda lame, don't you think? Anyway, I don't really care about that because I'm going to post on here everyday anyways as kind of a... way to keep track of how I'm doing. It's easy to lie to yourself and say you did okay when you really didn't, so here I'll fess up to what I've done wrong and what not. I got down to 165 like 2 weeks ago but with PMS comes the munchies and weight gain, as usual. Seriously, I need to stop this "5 pounds up, 5 pounds down" cycle. I've been doing it for months. I want to get under 165 and stay there and keep going down for once. My first goal is 160.. from there 155, then 150, and possibly 145 if i'm not small enough at 150. (It's too early to tell). Hopefully I can stick with this. I've gotten back into the habit of writing down everything I eat, so hopefully that will hold me accountable for any loss or non-loss lol Hope everyones doing great, and come on people lets get posting!! lol

Amandaaa, do you remember me? wait are you the same Amanda? lol I remember an Amanda from before, the same age as you but not sure. Who knows. Anyway, yeah I know what you mean this site used to be more busy before, people commenting back and forth and giving each other support. It seems to dead lately. I just came back like after I think a year, I think I left because of the lack of people on here :\ but now I'm back and ready to get the weight down once and for all. Totally get what you mean about the 5 lbs going up and down, it drives me nuts. I think I'm about 164ish or 5ish like you right now but last time I checked it was 159 and I think that's mainly because I was sick two days before, throwing up :( anyway hope you stick around here because I will. Take care~and good luck:)

I know what you mean, its sooo hard to stay motivated. What i do, is i think of someone i want to impress, or an event in the near future that i want to look good for, or to piss off someone who made a rude comment about your weight or something. Use those feelings as motivation. Focus all your energy on that goal. If you want to lose 10 pounds before a party, to impress your friends or prove to them you CAN and WILL do this, use that as your motivator. Its not always easy.. actually its never easy lol but you can do it :)
