    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.

    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...

    To all you people trying to lose weight by

    using a special diet or a supplement... The real way to lose weight (I've lost 70 pounds over the last year) is to change your life. Cut out the sweets, eat until your not hungry not until your stuffed, start walking or getting any minor exercise. Losing weight isn't a one time...

    Twenty pounds. I am pretty happy.

    I guess not eating for several hours at a time with meager snacks in between causes weight loss. Only 40 more.

    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 think I had lost weight :(

    now my jeans don't really fit me. They look to big on me and weird as if I got my jeans from a fat girl. I'm no longer a size 5 :( I'm a size 3. I only have one pair of jeans that fit me perfectly which is a size 3 :)

    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)!!

    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 was pushing 255+ pounds back in 2013,

    and now I am proud to say that I am back down to 207 pounds. and I am feeling a lot healthier than even. But I haven't reached my goal yet, I want to be back down to 185-190 pounds. the best advice I can give to anyone is to eat more often, but eat less at a sitting. and walk.
