I Have Lost Weight

    A little over a year ago I lost 40 pounds

    and as of right now, I've kept it off. I did have a goal of losing 50 pounds total. I'm slowly reaching that goal. Just this morning. I put on my new, smaller jeans, and they are getting loose. What a good feeling when you're smaller jeans are getting too big for you.

    Growing up I was always a big girl.

    Having to use skorts in elementary, because I was afraid pants would not fit. I had to start wearing pants in middle school, and the good thing is . . . they fit. As it progressed I would get teased, but didn't think much about it. This one kid Shawn would call me 'fatass'. Ever...

    I have lost 6 pounds over the past two week,

    BUT today when I went to the store to buy a new bra, I normally wear a 36C, but they were all too small for me, so I had to go all the way up to a 34D. I don't really understand that..

    I have an experience of losing about 55 lbs (25

    kg). Took me over a year, just by keeping my diet healthy and excercising. I'm now 123 lbs, 5'7" height, keeping the result for fifteen months now.

    People have been asking me

    why I wanted to lose weight. The first answer I give them, is because I want to be healthier for me, and feel worthy of someones love and affection, something i didn't think i would ever accomplish until recently. The other driving force to lose weight is for my future partner...

    It started in the summer.

    I think I was 58 kg and I've gone down 10 since that. I just don't have much appetite anymore.

    I have been overweight my whole life,

    and over 200lbs for the last 10 years. Today marked 60lbs lost (about 20lbs more until I reach the original goal I set for myself), and I still feel like I'm where I started. Does that feeling ever really go away?

    200 lbs. gone! Words cannot expressed how

    accomplished I feel!!! The best part of my experience has been the inspiration lent to family, friends, and coworkers. There's nothing we cannot do. "Started from the bottom, now we're here!!" Now excuse me, while I do my dance!

    I lost 5kilograms! I'm thrilled.

    I have to admit I've been doing pretty well with my eating habits- eating 5 meals a day plus some fruit before a workout and then a protein shake after. I just want to gain muscle mass!

    Losing Weight Naturally

    In the past year, I've lost more than 30 lbs. and now fit into clothes two sizes smaller. I did it by reducing my sugar and salt intake, and eliminating all hydrogenated oils. While that sounds easy, you wouldn't believe how many foods have salt and sugar in them, including...

    I'm under 100lbs. I was gaining weight for a while, almost reached 100lbs! But then, I started losing weight again. I don't know why. I don't try to lose weight. I don't need to lose weight, as a matter of fact, I probably need to gain a little. None of my friends are under...
