Hey guys!!!! I'm a senior in highschool, i weigh 143 lbs at the moment and i want to get that down to 130 by Spring Break. I figured i would start a group to keep myself motivated, and hopefully help others along the way. Throughout my life i have struggled with weight and last year i dropped 15 lbs, but it's just harder this go aroud. I figure that this should be my ultimate goal, and along the way learn new habits so next year in college i won't stack on the Freshman 15. Losing weight is always hard and i think checking in 1-2 times a week will be extremely beneficial for me. I will be completely honest throughout this whole process, and i will try my hardest to get there by Spring Break! Any one else with me? I don't care if you need to lose more weight or less, lets just get it together=)

Im not completely sure how you bookmark it. And that's great!=)

Forgot to include background info: 5'11" 175 lbs 19 yr old male

My goal is to reach 160 pounds by my bday (May 30) if not sooner. Even though I'm at a good weight for my height I cant stand my belly fat.

I haven't gone to the gym in a couple of days but I plan to today. If only these last 15lbs would melt of like the other 35 did >.< Scale hasn't budged in a while hahaha

Hey! I'd love to join this! I'm in college so my spring break starts the 9th. I'm 5'9 and 148lbs. Want to get to AT LEAST 140 by Spring Break so I can feel sexy in the VS bathing suit my fiance got me ;). I'm running anywhere from 2 to 4 miles every morning and eating about 1300 calories/day. I'm gonna go try hot yoga tomorrow :) heard from friends that it's AWESOME

Im defenetly so IN!!! I need to loose 15 lbs if not more by March 17.

So im so ready i need all the help i can get!! LETS DO IT!!
Alright you guys! Tuesday is weigh in, dont forget=)

Hi all -

Haven't worked out yet today and really not feeling happy about it! I took what I thought was going to be a short car trip that ended up taking 4 hours. I have a meeting at 10pm and then will be going to bed. I'm pretty bummed about it!

I also just want to remind everyone that a safe rate of weight loss is 1% of your body weight per week. joadree, March 17 is only 4 weeks away. What are your stats? A more realistic goal might be 8 lbs!

bec - sorry to hear about the missed workout.  That can be a downer. 

2nd the realistic weight loss goals!  If you have a lot to lose it can come off faster, but at this point most of us are looking at 8-9lb max. 

6mi run planned for 10am!  Wish me luck.  I haven't run this far in...oh a lot of years : )  I ran 5+ a few weeks ago and I've kept up with my 3+mi runs a couple of times a week so it's looking good.

Friday, everyone - keep it together!

This sounds great! I hope that if I have a support group like this, I will also be able to support my mom in weight loss too! She is goin in a cruise march 25th and she wants a beach body!! I wouldn't mind losing some weight either by the way! :)

I am super excited to start and I will try to remember to weigh in every Tuesday! Do we record it here?

Thanks beccaanic and i understand. Im at 200 lbs now :( i have excercise equipment at home and its just collecting dust so i want to push my self to the max. I want to eat heathly and excercise at least 6 days a week. I
I am DEFINITELY in....... N I can really use the support!!! It sucks because I NEVER had to work this hard to lose weight and I have always been active my whole life!!! But after baby number 3 it feels impossible! I am 29 and I weigh 160 lbs. Bahamas vacation is coming up and I would like to lose 15lbs!!!!! Count me in!

Today is my day off from exercising and I'm not sure how I feel about it! I don't think I'm losing weight, even though my food intake has been going well. Kind of upsetting.

You don't have to take a day off from exercising!  You just need to cross train.  Do something you don't usually do - something fun.

Completed my 6mi run - 1hr 2mins!


Yes we will weigh in here every tuesday! It'll be here before you know it so make good decisions=) i believe we all can do it, just have to get that mindset!
