Hi ladies mind if I join you? I'm 5'3" and weigh 235 lbs. I'd love to get down to 145 lbs, but I would be content at 160. At the end of my pregnancy I was 244 lbs. Kind of discouraging that I'm not even 10 lbs down after I had my baby! (Not to mention it's been 9 months since she was born!) I'm currently doing Weight Watchers and just started the Insanity program. It's nice to know there are other ladies out there trying to lose a significant amount of weight too.

Hello heyyydayyy! Welcome! I haven't gone on here for awhile and have bad news. I didn't lose anything but gained 4 lbs! Yikes. I thought of joining ww, heard it was good but I don't have the time!

How is everyone else doing?

Badly lol
I havent weighed myself as I know its not good. Good news though is that AF is gone fiiiiiinally so hopefully that'll stop the bloat and the cravings I've had for the whole of August!
I'm going to get a little pocket notepad to carry around with me and I'm going to write down EVERYTHING i eat. I think I need to see it written down to figure out how to change my habits.

Hi everyone. Please can I join. I'm not morbidly obese any more but I was when I started my diet. I was 266.5 lbs and I'm now 203 lbs.

My ultimate goal is to be 10 stone 6 but because I'm on a meal replacement diet I need to get down to about 10 stone so that when I refeed and gain the water weight, I'll be right where I want to be at 10 stone 6.

I started off at weightwatchers and lost 50 odd lbs but then went on the VLC diet to fit in my wedding dress that I bought 5 sizes too small!!!

I'd like to join in if it's ok!
I'm 5'3.5" currently weighing in at 199.2lbs.
I was 179 pre pregnancy and gained 63lbs while pregnant! At c-section, I was 242. After his birth, I lost a lot of weight and got down to 196 when he was 3 months old. I just stopped trying, got busy (and sleep deprived) and got back up to 213 and stayed there for a bit. This time around, I started at 203. I have been working out 5 days a week doing Zumba, Zumba Wii, Pilates Mat (for my c-section pouch) and using the Elliptical and treadmill for interval walking/jogging. I have started to add in weights. I lose very slowly. It has always been that way. My lowest weight I was 148 but i had to work SO hard to get there. I was doing 2-3 hour workouts every Saturday along with 1-2 hour gym sessions every other day and jogging when I would get bored- read: single and living alone. I have NONE of that time anymore.
Currently I have my calorie goals set to 1600. I am always under and usually net 1200 calories after working out. I am on MFP as csteinmetz83, please add me!

My biggest problem is FOOD. I LOVE food. I am a foodie who enjoys trying new dishes and gourmet cuisine. I LOVE to bake (carb fiend) and have a passion for food and it gets the best of me.

My other problem is motivation. I will sometimes need someone to tell me JUST DO IT and then I do.

Welcome Claudia and Embo!

It seems like weight watchers works pretty good. I would love to join, but I really cant find the time though. One thing I figured is that its sooo hard working out carrying all this excessive body weight! I wish there was a way to lose some weight by dieting and then slowly add in exercise as the pounds drop. I mean I can do probably 30 minutes of exercise at a time and I get too dizzy to do anymore.

I have a problem with food too. I dont have problem with junk food, I actually cook my own meals most of the time. I believe I cook decent meals but its just the portion size. I eat when I am even the slightest hungry although I just ate 2 hours ago! I always end up telling myself today's the last day and I will be serious tomorrow.

Am loving snacks of an apple and about 10-12 almonds at the mo xxx

I will try to limit my portion size today and see how that goes and will weigh in a week from today.

I don't eat a lot of processed junk food either, but my portion could use some help. I also have a hard time allowing food to set in, so I keep eating. I've been so use to 'hurry up and eat' with being in a work environment and now being a mom.

Ugh. This, exactly. I eat pretty dang healthy. I don't even remember the last time I had fast food or anything relatively greasy. But I love eating in bulk! I can sit and eat broccoli with hummus all day...too bad it stops being healthy after the first 5 bites.
