Default Losing it in 2014 Challenge!

Hi everyone! I'm a regainer who is looking to lose the weight for good. Instead of rushing it, I've decided to give myself a year to lose the 64 lbs I would like to lose.

Would anyone else like to join me? Perhaps we can check in and give eachother support.

Starting weight: 178
Goal weight: 115

I'm a regainer too. I was at goal (128) this time last year, and I've put on 30 lbs. I've discovered that I'm a great loser, but an even better gainer. Hoping to learn how to lose and maintain this year.

I'm a another regainer.

2013 was a stressful year for me. I've regained 7kg from a 15kg loss due to stress eating, injury and an overseas holiday. Christmas was just another layer of icing on a very delicious cake :-)

Hoping to lose 5kg before I start full time work in Feb (eek!) and a min 10kg before my university graduation in May. Ambitious, I know. But I need a kick up the butt, because I'm having trouble getting my head in the game.

I regained a bit too last year. I'd love to finally get to my goal in 2014. It's long overdue if I'm honest with myself.

I'm starting at around 210 and want to get to 155 next year, which will be 100 lbs from my highest weight ever.

hi! I've found that compared to how easy it is for me to gain, I'm a terrible loser!

I'm totally with you on that, I'm trying to get my motivation back instead of feeling like a failure

I would like to lose the last 23 (or more) pounds this year. That is exactly the same amount I lost this year. I need to get back on the wagon, track my calories, and start going to the gym more.

the start of 2013 was great! I lost lots of weight. But in June I fell off my wagon and got ran right over. in these last 6 months I've gained just over 20 pounds. So I would love to start off the new year by dropping those 20 pounds and then keep going. My man and I got tickets for christmas to visit family in Atlanta at the end of May. I've never been so far East and my man has never been on a plane, so we're super excited.
Starting at 245
Atlanta trip in May: 225
2014 goal: 200
Goal weight :180

Smile Hi there

I would love to join your guys challenge.

In 2012 I lost my job due to panic disorder and had a year of depression eating which spiked my weight up to 194.

In 2013 I managed to get down to 165.

In 2014 my goal is to get down to 125 (Mostly muscle) so that I can regain my life and my confidence.

I tried dieting with friends but they all dropped off the wagon, and I really do better with friends.

Feel free to email me/message me and if we get to know each other I would love to text so that we can keep an eye on each other! Man that sounded creepy...I meant more of a motivational set lol

Hello all! I would love to join in!

I'm currently in my early 20s and in college, which does not make dieting easy, considering I have to figure out dorm friendly diet food or eat from a meal plan!
In June 2013, I officially started my weight loss. Six months later I am 50lbs down, although with the holidays I've been jumping between 2-3 lbs on the scale. My dream ultimate goal weight is 130-135 or just having flat abs, whichever comes first. But I know that to reach that I would have to probably maintain a very strict workout schedule, which I know is not in the cards for me right now considering school. So for 2014, I would really hope to reach my more realistic/attainable goal weight which is 160.

SW: 230 / GW: 160

Default 2014 Weight Loss Support anyone in LA?

So here I am again….this has ben a life long thing loss weight, gain weight, lose weight…..I will be 40 next November and my goal is to be in the best shape of my life. I workout but I over eat and even binge at times. I'm ready to be in control of this aspect of my life for good. The last few weeks I have totally been stress eating. I was doing so good but my self sabotage runs so deeps as soon as I see progress, I do something to throw it off, namely emotional eating.

I was thinking about joining weight watchers but honestly, I can do what weight watchers does….using my fitness pal..right? What I really want to join it for is the support groups. So needless to say, it is not off the table. But I'm hoping to just find a group of cool chicks, who we can work together to keep each other fabulous!!

I generally, do low carb….but recently it's been lots of holiday sweets. I leave for Hawaii in four days so, Its too late to use that as an excuse to get it together…..anyways…out with the old and in with the new!! I hope you will join me!!

Current weight: 185
Goal: 160 for good!!!!
