Default Over 40 always been large and more than 100 lbs to loose or lost.

Hi folks!

I recently found this site and haven't found a thread that quite addresses me so I figured i'd start one.

I am over 40 always been large (since about 4th grade) and have more than 100 lbs to loose.

137 to be exact.

I have never done it. maybe 35 at a time and then gained back even more.

Joined WW at least 10 times, done south beach, 6wkBM 3 times. (found it too restrictive. to stay on more than a few weeks,)

So I have moved on to volumetrics and found this site and the fit record site.

But - and isn't there always???

I have never done it and don't know its possible. I have read success stories and they haven't transfered.

its so hard to believe and keep trying in the face of failure.

But - again - my doc showed me a graph of my weight over the last decade. and I have gained 100 lbs!!!! he said hey it was just one lb per month!

There are reasons physical and psycological but I have dealt with a lot of them and the psycological remains.

Anyone else out there????

I'd love to chat with you all!

Susan

I think it is for those who want to lose 100 pounds. I know newbies are welcome.Check it out, it won't committ you to anything, if you think it is not for you.

The 100 pound club is a good one or this one too, specifically for over 40.

Hi Susan...
like you, I'm new here too. I'm not quite 40, but I swear it's right around the corner waiting for me to poke my head out. I have over 100lbs to lose, but since I've never been thin, probably not even average, I find it hard to look at such a huge goal. I'm working on my weight in small doses. Once I reach 250lbs, from 286lbs (my highest), I'm making several small steps of 25lbs each.

Much luck and strength on your journey.


Sonja

46 and aiming for 131 lbs lost. I am doing it 10lbs a month-much less daunting, and less stressful. Both the 100lb and 40 somethings clubs are wonderful!
