    I Was 5'1 And Weighed 231 Pounds.

    That was at my biggest in the beginning of high school. I was always a little bigger than everyone else at school but it never bothered me until I moved to a different area with new people in a new middle school. I felt really awkward. No one made fun of me, not to me anyways...

    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!!

    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.

    What An Unhappy Marriage Can Do To You

    An unhappy, uninspiring, unmotivating marriage made me lose myself.  I didn't care about anything.  I gave up all that I enjoyed for a couch and tv every night.  I was so unhappy for more than 3 years, and I allowed myself to become something I wasn't.  I was a dancer, an...

    Woo, I lost 5lb... Not much considering I lost

    2.5 stone 2 years ago but that didn't make me feel any different, this has made me feel so much better! I have 3lb left to my target and I'll see how I feel when I get there! (Oh, and I managed to lose it despite eating a whole Victoria sponge cake!)

    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.

    I'm loosing my weight slowly.

    No miracle cure here! And it's not water weight. 19.6 lbs in 4 months. 35.6 lbs to go. My goal is to ring in 2015 in a nice dress. Unlike the baggy stuff I wear now to cover it all up.

    Probably about 3 stone

    since i was 15/16 (i'm 20 now), thing is, i didn't even mean to. I practically live on meat. I hate vegetables and salad, i don't drink loads of water, yet i've lost all this weight. Fast metabolism maybe? Who knows!

    So I'm on the road AGAIN to losing weight.

    Always tell myself that it's better to do something than nothing at all. So in two weeks lost 7lbs. My husband was really supportive but my friends? Not so much. Comments like 'oh you only lost that much?'. It went from one ear to the other. It was more of a motivation for me...
