    As much as loosing weight is most of our

    desires I have since realized that it's not just about losing weight. I used to weigh 165 pounds at only 5'2". It frightened me how large I was getting at only 15 years old. Since then I have started to actively participate in sports and work out to Blogilates. Since then I not...

    I'm happy today!! I've lost around 40 pounds

    and today I stood up for the first time in quite awhile!! I'm around 700 pounds, and I'm trying to lose. Only 500 more pounds to go.. I still can't really walk, but I got out!!! This body will hopefully not be my prison for much longer. If anyone needs motivation to lose weight...

    I weighed myself this morning,

    and I'm down an additional 2 pounds. That's a total of 32 pounds. I can now run a whole mile without stopping. 6 weeks ago I couldn't even run 1/4 of a mile without running out of breath and having to stop. Today I ran the mile along with the rest of my routine. I'm happy that...

    I'm down 10 lbs since January 9th!

    !! I'm now at 265 lbs. I have a loooong way to go but I AM going to do it. My clothes are fitting better, my energy level has spiked, I'm happier, I'm drinking less, I don't get out of breath just by changing my clothes. There was a sack of potatoes in the kitchen that was 5...

    I need to lose about 56 more pounds

    and then I would be happier. I lost 7 pounds so far. I want a bikini body. I want to be able to show my belly off this summer. Can't do that quite yet :/

    It's been a week and I've lost five pounds.

    I'm happy and motivated to keep going. No soda or sugary drinks, no sweet snacks, no over eating or eating when I'm not hungry. If I have a snack its healthy and/or less than 1 gram of sugar. Also I've been exercising more, all cardio. Whenever I ate cheeseburgers or anything...

    So I've decided starting June 1st I'm going to

    cut out soda from my life. I did some math and realized that my previous exercising and dieting was a waste because I was bringing in calories with soda. So let's see.. I drink about 4 Mountain Dews a day Each Mountain Dew is 170 calories each That's 680 calories a day from...

    Update on my weight loss: I've

    now lost 54lbs. I feel better than I ever have. I look better and better every day. Being healthy has become an addiction. I just wish I had someone to workout with.

    17.5 lbs down since January 9th!

    I went from 275.4 to 257.9. I'm obsessed with my numbers (my weight, my steps, and I track all my work outs). I'm not counting calories. I'm just being more heath conscious and not giving into "boredom eating". I feel AMAZING. I'm glad I got the motivation to do this while I'm...

    I am 18 years old. I'm short (barely 5 ft)

    and fat. Waistline is 35-36. When I computed for my BMI I discovered I am actually obese... It's so depressing. I need help but I don't know where to get started. I eat breakfast and lunch. Dinners are only for special occasions. I need help... :'(

    I know you'll think this is silly,

    but oh my god! I can feel my hip bones! I mean, they aren't sticking out or anything like that, but I can't remember the last time I could! It's definitely the little things, isn't it? I'm slowly getting there!

    I lost about 60lbs last year.

    I started at 200lbs and made it to 137lbs. But I started gaining it back and now weigh 148lbs. It is hard to find the motivation to go through this all again. I did it through calorie counting last time. But I just can't seem to buckle down and do it again for more than a week...

    I started this week. I'm choosing to be

    healthier. I'm tired of being obese, I want to lose one hundred pounds so I can be a normal size for once in my life. And so I can like how I look. I definitely don't like how I look now. I know I will need to make only good food choices and exercise. I know it takes hard work...

    So here is my before

    and "during" pictures. Like I've posted before I'm working very hard to lose weight and tone my body. Eating right & exercising is key! The 2nd picture was taken about 2 weeks ago so I'm excited to take an even more updated one and see how I've progressed since then.

    I was so proud of myself today.

    I have lost 35 pounds and today was the first time I actually felt good looking in the mirror. Then the person who I considered my best friend looked at me and said "well you still weigh way too much for someone your height" and there went my happiness :(

    No, I do not want to lose weight - I am going

    to lose weight. I am so sick of feeling awful about my body. This is ruining my life and tonight my new life style begins. Screw pizza, fries, and all that tasty crap. I am stronger than my cravings.
