I could not find a tread for others battling the 220's. I'm not officially there yet. I'm still 231, but I'm hoping to be in the 220's by next week!! Anyone else in the 220's? I would love to chat with you.

Just got there this past week! I'm about your height too. Bet in a few days you'll be there!

I'm the same height and weighed in at 228 on Saturday. I'd love to chat with others my size. :)

I am the same height and around the same weight!

Out of curiosity, where do you ladies carry your weight? I unfortunately carry it all around my middle where it makes clothes shopping a pain. It's often assumed that it's evenly distributed. My thighs aren't too big and I have no rear to speak of. Same can be said for my bust - I barely fit a B cup!

@BellaM - This is completely random, but I have to ask because of your avatar... Are you a Boston mommy? I have 2 myself! :)

My weight is all over though currently it seems to be mostly on my front -abdominal area, bust. When I first became overweight I looked more pear-like though so it's like I'm a pear that morphed into an apple. I have heavy legs too so I guess it's most accurate to say that it's all over.

Hi Essbee, Cofeelover, and BellaM! It's always great to find others who are within the same weight range and with similar goals.

I carry my weight all over, but my middle section is definitely the worst. I look sooo pregnant. I recently came back to work to a place where I used to work before I was overweight. I could just see the shock in people's faces when they saw how big I had gotten. I know a lot of them though I was pregnant.

What plan are you guys doing? I'm counting calories and just started exercising. I actually got up extra early this morning to do a 30 min walk. That is all I can do right now. I would love to be able to run even though I've never been a runner.

There is one. I just bumped it forward. I am feeling lonely. Come join in.

I'm actually doing Dr. Anderson's Simple Diet (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/general-diet-plans-questions/252102-dr-andersons-simple-diet.html) which is basically five meal replacements throughout the day (3 shakes, 2 frozen entrees) and 5+ servings of fruits and veggies. I had aspirations to workout at the gym Monday-Friday, but well... I'm being told I shouldn't go everyday. I don't know what to do. I think I might try every other day and see how that goes (while probably doing a little something at home on the off days) for a while. The first two weeks I was eating too few calories because I was afraid to eat, around 800-900 and then walking for 40 minutes a day. I had a treadmill and put on a TV show on DVD which runs about 40 minutes or just over. It's a great distraction. I'm hoping to build up to running myself and was planning to start the Couch to 5K program soon, but my knees have started giving me trouble, so I might hold off a bit. Lately I've been doing water aerobics and weight training.
