I want to join!  I did one of these before and was totally not very successful.

I’m 5’2″.  I weighed this morning, and I’m at 132.5.  My goal is 120.  It’s been my goal for several years.  I used to be 156, so I have lost some weight already.

After my wedding dress came in and tried it on and had enormous back fat, I decided to get my butt in gear.  I’ve lost 5lbs since I tried it on, so only 12.5 to go.  I used to be a size 14 (gotta love my hips), and now I’m a 10.  I’d love to be about a 6, but if I can just get to 120 before I have to get my dress altered soon, that would be great!  I’m hoping this motivates me to keep up the good work and reach my goal.

Good luck ladies!

Oh, I completely forgot to tell you about my big reason to lose weight:

I’m buying my dream dress in a size 12, and I am already a street size 12, so I think the dress will be too tight!

So since others were weighing in again today, I guess I will too! Down to 205.6!! I don’t even think that I’ve changed my eating habits much, but I’ve been doing Zumba! (Love it!)

So excited!! 

I was 184 back in April of this year, and have gained so much “in love” weight its ridiculous! Then gained another 2 pounds on the honeymoon! (Carnival cruises have soft-serve ice cream on TAP, whenever you want it! – oh SNAP!)

Anyway, DH has been so ridiculously supportive and encouraging! ๐Ÿ™‚  

Great job ladies…keep up the good work! I can’t “weight” to be below 200lbs again! 

My mini-goal is to be back under 200 before New Years. 

My ultimate goal is to be at 140-150, which is still considered overweight at my height of 5’0. But DH hates skinny women, so I gotta keep some curves. ๐Ÿ™‚

OK, so here we go! 167.4lbs as of this morning ๐Ÿ™ WTF

My goals are to lose 10 lbs by July of 2012. So, that should be easy ๐Ÿ™‚ My strategy is to continue to train for the Tough Mudder which is May5th by running 3-4 miles 3-4 times a week and doing a weight-lifting/isotonic routine 3-4 times a week as well as follow a healthy eating plan, probably weight watchers or some variation of that!

Good Luck everyone!

Just to up the ante a little, my dress is a little tight, but wearable. Or at least it was 5 lbs ago! It can be let out, but reeaching my goal will make that unnecessary. That would be awesome!

Starting weight is 266. I’m 5’9. It’s a lot of weight, but I guess I have never done anything about it because I carry it pretty well. I am hoping to add some before pictures soon. My goals are to start eating smaller portions and less junk. I am also going to work on cutting out a lot of the diet pop. I would love to get out of the 200’s, but have not set a time limit on it yet.

So how does the BEEgest loser work on here? Do we need to weigh-in by a certain time each week?

Hi girls, I’ve decided to join in. Don’t know if it will work though, I’ve been wanting to lose weight FOREVER.


I’m 5ft1, and I weigh 180


I want to weigh 120


I have a year to lose weight…but i’m not keeping my hopes up. I’ve just bought a bicycle and I’m enjoying going out for rides, and I walk to work everyday so I get in at least an hour per day.

But I just love food too much :'( 


I’ll be devastated if I can’t look pretty on the big day.

My starting weight is 138. I am 5’4. By my wedding, which is exactly 4 months away, my goal is to be 130.

Does weight watchers really work???

I’m at 181, looking to be at 160 by March 18th (day of the Shamrock 8k) but my wedding isn’t until August.   I want to get to and maintain 160 but I need to cross that road when I get to it.
