Ht. 5'8", Start: 215 lb, Today: 215 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 160 lb - Hey guys. I have been having a rough time in the weight loss department. I lost a lot of weight a few years ago, but I have gained most of it back in the last couple of months. I have started riding my bike nearly 20 miles a day, but I am still gaining weight. I'm really starting to lose hope. I need a buddy, or multiple buddies, that I can talk to for support. Does anybody have any ideas?

Ht. 5'2", Start: 132 lb, Today: 129 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 110 lb - Hi. So I use to weigh 138 pounds (63kg) and now I weigh 129(59). I've being yo-yoing for roughly the past year and I'm sick of it. I HAVE lost weight but not much and I'm still really unhappy, really unfit and in the 'at risk of being overweight' section for my BMI. My goal weight is 110(50) and I plan to lose 19 pounds(9kg) by November 1st. I've just bought a wii fit, treadmill and am totally cutting out all my junk food beginning tomorrow. It's possible everyone who reckons it isn't. My Aunty did it, she lost 30 pounds in 2 months! :) I just wish my family was more supportive. My Dad deliberately says I'm fat, my brother shoves the food in my face and my Mum just keeps buying more and more junk to store in the cupboards. I don't expect them to cut out all junk for me, but some support would be nicer. Anyway, back to my point, my... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 190 lb, Today: 170.4 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 135 lb - I had a really crappy day today...I went to the Olive Garden with my sister. I brought home half of my dinner because I had already eaten 4 breadsticks, salad, and stuffed mushrooms. Then on the way home we got ice cream cones! I refer to my sister as a "diet sabotager" because all she wants to do is eat when we hang out. She tells me almost every time we go out to forget about my diet and live just that one night....I love my sister but there's a reason she's overweight. I don't wanna look like her. We look alot alike in appearance. Same hair, eyes, facial features. You can tell we are related. She had a daughter 2 years ago and people in my neighborhood always mix us up...I don't want people to think I'm her, or that I look like that. It's sad, but it is kind of what motivates me. She doesn't like that I always turn her down when ... (view more)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 285 lb, Today: 235 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I can't believe a few short months ago I was looking at myself, 50 pounds heavier, and didn't think I could change anything. I was so wrong! I still struggle with the depression everyday, thinking of how much farther I have to go and how I look. Even after 50 pounds, I can't see a difference, but everyone else can. I guess the whole distorted self-image thing is something I'll always have to deal with. But I've started a new workout plan, lots of cardio, twice a day. Drinking lots of water. And as far as a diet goes, I'm keeping it under 1500 calories a day. Eating mostly vegetarian, but also eating poultry. I feel really good right now. I haven't felt this way in months. I'm done letting my weight, and food, run my life. I will succeed, and it will be great :)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 228 lb, Today: 226 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Alright. Being off for about a month did not feel good. In 3 months I went from 215 to 226. But I'm getting back on track. I want to loose 80 pounds in 10 months. I think thats possible. But, the reason I keep not succeeding is because I have no motivation. If anybody wants to talk, post here with your email adress!
