    The core of this achievement lies in

    that ah-ha moment. I was a chubby child but never obese. I was thin throughout most of my adult life, but graduate school, having a child, and thyroid problems compounded. I gave up. Every blog I read said that it was almost impossible. I had a child, and she was my focus...

    I have lost a lot of weight

    since being pregnant, I'd say it's from all the morning sickness and not being able to eat much, apparently it's pretty normal so yeah, I weighed 75kg before pregnant and now I weigh 67kg

    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...

    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.

    I'm losing weight. It's a good thing.

    I've lost about 50 lbs. since Xmas. For the first time of my life, I don't need to eat for comfort. I don't need to hide in my fat suit anymore. I'm ready to come out and live again. One good thing is my clothes don't fit comfortably anymore. They are actually too big and I have...

    Lost 65 lbs and just gained 5 back on vacation.

    What's worse is that some of my sugar cravings also came back so now I'm really having to battle turning this around. I don't want to go back where I came from (weight wise)!!

    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!

    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

    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.
