    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 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..

    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!

    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!

    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 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?
