Howdy folks!

Glad to see we are still up and running.

Start weight for me is 235.

Am currently at 217.4.

My current goal is to get to 215 by June 25th.

Then after that I will set another goal.

Happy losing!

Hi Ladies-

I am fairly new to the Bee and when I saw this I thought this would help me with extra motivation and accountability! I have been trying to do weight watchers, but have fallen off the bandwagon the past couple of weeks so here I am starting again! I am starting at 206lbs and for my May wedding next year I would love to be around 170. Off we go!

I’m in! We are not engaged yet (thinking in might happen this weekend!) but I need to lose this weight. I’m done hating myself and being depressed and insecure. 

What is WLC? 

Do we weigh in on a certain day each week? 

My starting weight is 210. My ultimate goal is 140, don’t really have a deadline that’s just where I want to eventually end up. A good friend is getting married in October, so I could use that as a shorter term goal…. maybe 170 by then?

Hi ladies! I would love to participate!  I’ve gained about 15lbs over the course of my deployment to Afghanistan.  There are way to many choices for junk food here and they main food they serve isn’t very good.  I would like to tone up and loose a few lbs before my wedding.  I am heading home in a few days so I might be MIA next week.

My starting weight 170

My goal for my wedding 155

My goal for life somwhere under 150

wedding date 28 Apr 2012

Hello Ladies!

I started my weight loss journey last August. Weighing in at 252lbs. Today, I have lost close to 30lbs with help of bootcamp and a personal trainer. I am just having a hard time finding motivation. Lately, I have been picturing myself in my wedding dress and its definitely something that is troublesome. I have not gotten my dress in so I am trying to lose all the weight that I can before I have my fittings.

 

Start Weight: 226lbs

Goal Weight: 150lbs

Goal Wedding Weight: 180lbs

 

Wedding date is October 15th. I know my Fiance will love me no matter how much I weigh but for my health and my self esteem I am glad to be on this journey with all of you bees!

Hi ladies, I’ve been lurking around on the boards for about a year or so, but I think I’ll come out of hiding for this.

Starting: 180

Wedding Goal: 160

Life Goal: 145

I’ve got three kids and the baby weight does not want to move.  I’m a binge eater and every time I try to lose weight I lose 7lbs quickly, gain 5 back slowly and settle in for a while.  It can’t be good for my body and it’s really not good for my mind.  I’m going to try to take it slow this time.

Ok. I want to join!  Hopefully Fiance won’t decide to visit these boards because i do NOT want him to know my weight LOL!

 

I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrom) which is a metabolic and hormonal disease. So I’m an emotional fat chick LOL!!!!!!!!!  Seriously though I don’ t metabolize sugar …. I store it ALL.. including sugar from fruits etc. In 2000 I did a modified protein sparing fast through my endochrinologist. In 4 months I lost about 50 lbs taking me from 245 to 193.  It was HARD and for some reason I can’t motivate myself to do it again even though it’s EXACTLY what I need to do.

 

I’m back up now to 253 last weight 2 or 3 weeks ago right after he proposed. I haven’t started an actual diet again but am eating HEALTHY. I’ve done so many diets I know what healthy eating is at least LOL!  My weakness is exercising. I’m thinking of getting a wii fit or something… ladies who’ve lost weight CONGRATS and how did you do it?

 

I’m getting married in just 8 months… I would like to be 190. Tha was a size 14ish for me and that was great! Ideally I want to be 170 (I am 5’9″ 1/2) but 190 was a comfy weight for me.

 

It’s amazing how some of us want our goal weights to be others’ starting weights:)

@CindyRelly: We are all different heights, so that is probably some of the difference in weight goals. Then, once you reach what you think is your goal, you often end up wanting more, lol! I’m sorry to hear you have a medical problem that makes it so difficult for you. Hopefully having a cheering squad will help you out!

@Keltaena I think this group will definitely help!  I just have to stick to it… the motivation of getting married and honeymooning somewhere warm is more motivation than I ever had!  Last time when I lost the 50 lbs it was right afte rI found out my ex fiance cheated on me and we ended things…. this is much better of a reason than that;)

@CindyRelly: Yes, height makes such a difference.  I am a mere 5 foot, 5 ft 1 inch when I stand up straight:)  I am terribly jealous of you taller ladies! 

Another way of looking at this  . . . I started out squezing into a 16 and now I am a 14 cusping into a 12.  My goal is to be an 8.  I’d love to be smaller than that, but I dont think I am built that way! (I have huge boobs, and a bit of an ass.  I carry way too much weight in my midsection, which seems to be the hardest place for me to lose weight!)
