I would like to lose about another 30lbs
before May 14th
I'm currently attending weight watchers which is working but also excercise at home
My motivation is that I want to live to see my son grow up and have a reasonable quality of life, I'm tired of being 'the fat one' in my friends group, family and being stared at for all the wrong reasons.


sw: 209.5 cw 209.5 gw 180


good luck and happy new year everyone!

Claire: What a cute jacket!! I'm sure you can make it out of the 220s by next monday!

Dawn: Welcome! I understand how you feel about being the "fat one". My siblings are all thin (even my sister who has a child...still weighs 110) as are the majority of my family members! My friends are all between average and thin...can't wait to go shopping with them and be able to shop in the same department!

So today is the first day of the new year!! I'm on track so far!
Here I come 195!!

To get there I'm setting mini-goals. I want to lose 12 lbs in January!

What is your mini-goal?

happy new years all. i've been experimenting with different eating plans...although i've done almost everyone already. but they've never succeeded while i worked. i'm searching for something doable that i can do long term. i am currently mixing ese (eat stop eat) with south beach but not phase one. i don't care if i lose slow as long as i lose and am healthier. anyways, been to the y last couple days and yesterday had a good walk/run

1. I need to lose 61.2 pounds
2. I had it planned to be at 199 for July 4th, but I have been behind a few pounds so I am going to say the end of July.
3. Right now I am just getting my eating under control, but would like to start adding in exercise once I get to 240.
4. Buying clothes from non-plus size stores, going to amusement parks and fitting on the rides comfortably, going to Las Vegas with my friends, and having more confidence.

WE CAN DO THIS!

Hi all,

1. I need to lose about 15lbs to be in onderland but I want to target 28lbs by June 1st
2. Calorie Counting (1200-1500) - Clean and Lean diet
3. Exercising between 20-40mins a day (doesnt sound alot but I work rediculous hours and am always on my feet)
4. Sick of wearing "fat pants" to look good in skinny jeans, I want to be able to go out and buy some without muffin tops making me feel bad when I do go shopping.

GOOD LUCK everyone

Newbie! I need to lose 23 lbs to hit onederland and want to do it by Mar 20. I have many reasons, most of which you all have already named, but the most motivating to me right now is an upcoming vacation in late June. I want to go snorkeling without wearing a t-shirt in the water to cover everything because I am so self-conscious. I want to be able to walk on the beach without getting out of breath. I want to be ME again!!

Hi everyone!

1. I need to lose 71 pounds as of my last weigh-in (although I suspect much of that was water weight, I'll still use it)
2. Deadline: August 1
3. Right now, I'm following South Beach phase 1. After, I will continue following phase 2 generally. I've learned that low carb and preparation are totally key for me. I'm also counting calories and trying to stay within a range of 1600-1800. I work out 4-5 times a week on the treadmill or elliptical and will add at least 2 days of strength training, even though I hate it!

4. Honestly, I am at a point in my life where I realize I won't be young forever. I just got blood work and everything was fine, except my liver levels were slightly elevated, which is caused by obesity. I know that if I continue on the path I've been on, my cholesterol, blood pressure, etc will be out of whack and I have a family history of health issues that I do NOT want to have. I just want to conquer this once and for all, and I won't beat myself up to do it, but I want to finish my 20s as a healthy, thin person. (Also, I'm a bridesmaid in a summer 2013 wedding, which gives me enough time to lose weight and not be the heifer bridesmaid!) Also, there are other typical vanity reasons, but honestly, I'm more worried about my long-term health and mobility.
