I am 5.3 and 186 lbs ( just went on the scale and I am more upset then ever) I live in NYC I want To lose 2 lbs a day and 60 lbs by next Year. I have a hard time resisting temptations and I get very hungry at some point around 7 pm. I am too young to looks so old. I think these extra 60 lbs make me look 10 years older.

Let me know if you have similar goals and if ur open to call and be called when is hard to resist running to the corner pizza shop

Hi! I'm 5'4 and 169 lbs... I live in California and would like to lose 40 lbs in the next year... hopefully sooner. I know California is far but I do know exactly where you are coming from. So if you're interested, let me know! :)

Of course I am interested. You are 3 hours behind but you can still call me whenever. 10 years ago I gained a lot of weight also but I was so determined... I kept a 700 calories a day and lost more than was needed and I felt great. I know I was so hungry in the first 3 weeks, I was literally crying of hunger. So hungry, I was dreaming I'm eating chicken drums and things sitting on one of those renascence feast type of table... That's how hungry I was getting. BUT my dearest friend was there and while I was crying and whining she always put up with me and after walking around in circles for a while I was going back to bed and sleep, like bored cats do. It was so sad. My point is, now I am going through the same stage and I have no support. You want to call or just keep it in the e-mails. I'm willing to do whatever. I know the first 30 lbs are hard. After that I'm hoping I can do it with no problems.

I'm in the same boat. 6 years ago I gained 50 lbs... then two years ago I lost 35 of them... but that was because of a break up and I just couldn't bring myself to eat. In the last six months I've put on almost 40 lbs. I also don't have any support here. I'm living with roommates and they eat out a lot and are always cooking foods I want to eat but really shouldn't. My weaknesses are grilled cheese, chips, crackers, and more cheese. Unfortunately those things are constantly at my fingertips. So, in short, yes! I would love some support. We can e-mail here and I will give you my number to call or text whenever you want! :) 


I am in Ohio and I am 5'6" and I am 258 I have 59 lbs to lose to get to my first goal.I want to get down to 176. I am big boned and I do not look good skinny because believe me I have been there to. My family is so tired of hearing me talk about my weight loss that they dont want to talk about it no more. I began at 284 when I had my baby 3 months ago. If you want we can all add each other on facebook and start a group on there with each other.

I did have a problem with eating late to. I have my moments but as long as I dont eat after 9 I am ok. Its not so much the time like 6 or 7 but how long after you go to bed. As long as you have time to burn that meal off you can eat it.

I think starting a group on Facebook is a good idea. I need to stay motivated!!

Okay guys, im Doina okay for Noe. Breakfast was all-right. Let's see how hungry I get by lunch. I'm aiming to have 600 left for dinner and an extra 200 left over just for the kicks.

I got woken up at 4:30 am because my best friend was giving birth. It was hard finding something healthy to eat at the hospital but I think I did pretty good with Total Raisin Bran with fat free milk and a banana. The bagels and muffins were tempting though!!! Keep up the good work Cristina! 

Yeah, it totally screwed up at lunch. Had a slice of whole wheat bread and 3 thin slices of deli ham... And the total calories were horrible. I also wanted to apologize for my typos... My iPhone just autocorrects words so fast I don't even notice until after I submit the post.
Hi Christina:) We have the exact stats..I am also 5'3 and 186.
Bricelly, when did u started courting calories? I started yesterday. Apparently I will be 30 lbs down this coming march. I have no idea how I'm gonna do that. Needless to say I'm scared I will always be fat...
I started the 12th of June and am down 10 lbs so far:) i started weighing 196. I too was scared to be fat forever but once I joined cc I met so many great people. Everyone is very supportive and nice. They have helped me so much. Currently I count my cals and eat healthier. I also walk on my treadmill for an hour 5 times a week. I also allow myself one cheat day because my family is used to dining out on Saturdays:)

I am interested. I don't like talking on the phone but we can text if you like. I'm from PA
