    I started Slimming World about 10

    or 11 weeks ago and I ended up losing about 6lbs but because of stress due to exams and essays at uni I ended up putting it all back on again. I managed to lose 2 1/2 lbs last week though which is good but I don't know how long I can keep it up for because I always crave sugar...

    Hey Guys. In 2010, I weighed about 330 lbs

    (150 kg) I was fat and sick and depressed- I had a horrible body image. I started getting fat at about age 16. I was eating loads of fried and fatty foods and I stopped playing sports. I was on the fast track to Diabetes and other health related illnesses. I spent my 20's both...

    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 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 :(

    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've been doing good.

    I had a cheat day the other day but I only had one very small sweet treat. Diet has been well besides that. I had a dream last where I was at this buffet with my family. I was only going to choose the healthy food. Then all of my cousins were ignoring me and stuff and...

    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.

    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...

    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.
