Ht. 5'3", Start: 144 lb, Today: 147 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 120 lb - Hey guys! So, I’m so excited because I’m joining a gym tomorrow! I joined one last summer and lost six pounds, but it was farther away and I couldn’t keep up with it. This one is like right next door and I’m doing it with my friend. She’s actually slim, but she doesn’t do any sports or exercise and she wants to do some sort of activity so she can be healthy. It’ll be fun, because I’ll have someone with me and even better she’s just as lazy as me when it comes to exercise. We both hate it! I can’t wait! I want to lost 10lbs in three weeks, I think I can do it because I’m heavier, and my body hasn’t had any real exercise in forever.
Wish me luck!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 160 lb, Today: 156.2 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 105 lb - I found at a BMI chart is really helpful to know if I a really overweight or close to a healthy weight I really suggest that you look at how tall you are and use the chart it's an excellent tool to decide your goal ... And it's easy to find just go into google and type BMI chart and go to images and youll see it :)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 171 lb, Today: 148 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 108 lb - Okayyyyyy so I've been doing okay the last couple days. Tomorrow is my official start date. I need to lose 40 more pounds by August (Before I go back to school). Doing really good academic wise, applying for this award that I'm eligible for since I've done 100 hours of community service last year.
Went fishing with my dad and brothers and sisters at our community park last night and I caught a 10 pound catfish :) We fish for fun only because were vegetarians.
Any-who, I gotta go to my siblings homeschooling P.E. class in a half an hour (WALKING UP THERE) so GTG!
Hugs and Fishes!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 190 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 130 lb - I've recently gained a new addiction: Pinterest. Good thing about it, it does have excellent fitness tips. Bad thing about it is they also have a lot of FABULOUS looking recipes on there...haha, stay strong! Anyway, I found this thing that has a daily workout plan and does different stuff each day. I've done it for the last 4 days and it has been nuts. I never adjust and the next day I always have felt sore in my abs or arms. It's a pretty serious thing. Here is the link: http://allyfit.tumblr.com/post/15968075542/photoset_iframe/allyfit/tumblr_lxwus9c3lF1ql2uvy/500 ....I love it, and am fully committed to keep doing it. I'm also gonna pick up my running again. My mom gave me an arm band thing to hold my ipod in while I run, so I look forward to getting back on the tredmile (not goin' out side yet, burrr!) Alrighty ladies (and gentlemen) good luck! let me know what you think about that daily exercise plan (if you dont know what certain exercise movies are I would look up how to do them on youtube)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 190 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 130 lb - I haven't been on here since NOVEMBER! Crazy! I've done pretty well...haven't lost any weight, just maintained. The last couple days I've just been eating so much bread, cookies, brownies etc...It's killing me. I work at a fast food restaurant and I am constantly not eating very good food. I've got my mom involved as she too is trying to lose weight. So we've decided to work out together and do better at following the Weight Watchers plan, and drink lots and lots of water. I'm renewed and excited to start afresh - because right now I'm not feelin' to great. I am excited to get back on here after such a long time and give and receive motivation and support!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 144 lb, Today: 148.5 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 120 lb - Ugh! I keep telling myself "I"m going to excersize" but I never do! I'm afraid to go on the scale, because I know I've gained weight. My legs look so big and it actually turns out that i'm a n inch shorter than I originally thought, so my bmi is even higher. I want to say I'll start fresh tomorrow, but will I really? THis is so frustrating! I want to look good for Spring Break, but I don't know if i'll make it! I thought I was fat at 130lbs, now I would do anything to be there again!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 210 lb, Today: 210 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - hey again. I kinda need tips on how to lose weight. what helped yall? the most i have lost once was like 5 pounds. then i quit. i get too frustrated cause i want to see results fast but ik it doesnt work that way. and i usually eat when im frustrated and stuff. and my bf doesnt help much with the frustration. i love him to death and he loves me the way i am. but he can get irritated easy and take it out on me. which frustrates me. and he wants me to lose some weight cause of some things that run in my family. or things that could happen. my mom has high blood pressure problems that im already starting to get. my grandpa has has 4 heart stints. so i really need to lose weight. but i just dont really know how. and when i try i give up cause i get frustrated that its not working
