    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!

    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...

    So after a year, yesterday,

    of working on weight loss, eating healthy, exercising, etc, I’ve finally hit my first weight loss goal. This time last year I was an embarrassing 320 lbs. I was beyond overweight, had high blood pressure (144/82), hated myself, was depressed, and just sat at home playing...

    I'm almost down 100! I can't wait and then 20 more lbs and I should be at a healthy weight. I'm so happy I'm getting healthy, I feel great. A friend introduced me into being a cave girl and eating paleo. No dairy, no bread, and no sugar. I'm not going to lie starting this was...

    So I'm two weeks shy of 17 years old.

    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...

    The thing I didn't anticipate

    when working so hard toward weight loss was the attention. Having been heavy (and married) for so long it didn't really occur to me that others would find me attractive if I'd lost weight. There seems to be a growing trend in my neck of the woods that married women who lose a...

    These are really bad pictures but,

    where I'm wearing pink is from around February, and where I'm wearing teal is from a couple days. I took all of these right when I woke up so it's really true to size. I started working out in about March, I did a 30 day challenge, and I lost about 15 pounds. I'd say that is...

    Growing up I was always a big girl.

    I worked hard to lose a bit over 100 lbs. I bounce around 185. I would love to lose another 20 lbs. My issue here is even though my kids are proud of my weight loss my husband isn't. He has told me a number of times he'd like me to go back to how I was. This is absolutely heart...

    and it's not like I'm trying but it happens every time I get in a depressive/insomniac episode and it's really not helping my health Plus that I'm small enough in general already I don't have a scale (and ain't gonna get one) so idk if I've crossed the line to officially...

    I have lost 170lbs over the last year,

    130 of that in the last 6 months. I had Gastric Bypass surgery in Sept 2013 and feel like a different person. I have more to go but I am enjoying it so far.

    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.

    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.

    It's a little brutal the photo is,

    but I'm so sick of being fat and I've been on this diet for 3 days now and this is a massive improvement, I'm feeling lighter, more positive and most importantly very happy! I'm glad I haven't felt the need to give up yet! I love life!!

    Ok. So I have run 24 miles over the past week

    and walked at least that much. Thus I have lost a little weight and part of an inch from the waist (down to 36 1/4" when fully extended from just over 39" at the end of this past winter). Now my hip bones are poking out, by the front of the pelvis, but I still have a bit of a...
