Hey I just learned bout this site. I am 24 and I have three children i weigh 265 and 5"7" CrySo that is horrible. I have a wedding I am in in august and I am just depressed. I would Like to Join this group becaue it seems motivating and fun. What days do weigh in on and how do i start excercising with no money for a gym membership. Is it possible to workout without going to a gym maybe at park.

 OMG don't be depressed about a wedding!  I think you could go for jogs around the block.  I think if you run around your blok 6 times that would be 3 miles!  If I didn't have bad knees I would run outside.  You can even power walk.  or take walks for your lunch breaks at work.  You need to make a deal to yourself.  Thats the only way I was able to lose weight (still have lots to go!) I made a vow to myself never to be fatter than I was at that moment.  You can do it!  If I can lose 30 pounds already you can do it!  I feel so much better about myslelf and feel more healthy!  Good luck! I think weigh ins are tuesdays...

Not sure if it's too late to join in here?

if i can do this, anyone can!!!

 Wow that's great!!!!!!! You are my exact goal!!!! You just gave me tons of motivation!

Alright. So after my first week of trying to lose weight, I seriously dropped the ball! I don't want to name names, but SOMEONE got me really really drunk from WAY too much beer this weekend. To the point that I can't honestly fill in my caloric intake for the weekend because I don't even know what I drank. So now I'm a little bit sad, still very pumped to lose weight, but definately hanging my head in shame. I have been drinking lots of water since though, and I've got some serious exercise in, but I fear my weigh-in tomorrow won't be pleasant. :(

I'd like to join in too.  I need some moral support here!

i really love this group!  i know i don't belong here, but it's just like a whole bunch of old me's!  :D  i know how frustrating it can be, and how awesome, too!

i just had to pop in again & check in on you guys.  you CAN do it!!!  you ALL can do it!!!  i love to see all this motivation, and that's exactly what you need.  always remember your goal!  you ALL can weigh anything you want!!!  just choose a number  :D

i never knew that!!!  but i do now.  i'm pretty happy where i am right now.  i'd like to lose more weight, but i don't really care.  hubby keeps saying i'm too skinny.  i'm not!!!  but i love hearing that  :D

let me know if you need any help, AND think of this as a lifestyle change NOT a diet!!! 

just start with a few simple changes that you know you can live with.  my 1st 2 changes were never to eat an entire giant toffee symphony bar all at once again, and never to eat an entire large bag of chips all at once again.

I want to join too. Today is my first day on the site.

Well I had a "cheat day" on Saturday... But I still feel confident about my weigh in tomorrow. Because of my workout regime and me sticking to my calories besides my cheat day... I wish everyone good luck for tomorrow and sending those good weight loss vibes!!!! :-) And welcome everyone that has joined!

I just realised that I actually weighed 211 last week not 221 but i am leaving 221 as my starting weight as i was this weight in january.

Anyway, week 1 weight loss 5lbs Smile

This is my last weigh in as a 21 year old as its my birthday on wednesday. I want to achieve my goal weight by the time i turn 23(now i have put it into writing it has to happen).

This weeks weight: 234

Next Goal: 200

Ultimate Goal: 140

I'm down 2 pounds. That feels pretty good considering I cheated like crazy on Saturday. (I had a club sandwich, fries, a burger, chips and I got wasted drunk. Total like 4000 calories for the day. I did a 10k that day but it didn't make up for it). I'm not feeling good today though. 

Anyway, good luck guys!! I'm sure you did wonderfully!!

Weigh in Day

Four More to Go to my First EVER weightloss goal! I'm so on this. This makes 11 pounds for our group so far. Keep 'em comin'!

Current Weight:  226

Week One Weight Loss:  11 lbs

I don't know how accurate that is.  I weighed myself on April first and it was 237, but it was later in the day.  There can't be any way that I lost that much weight!  Anyway, I took note of the time I weighed in today and will weigh at the same time next week.

Good job everyone!!! You guys all did great so far!!!! There's a possiblity you could have lost 11 lbs in one week with really god eating and extensive excercise like the biggest loser people... but it's not common... so dont be discouraged if next week you only lost 1-3 lbs that's more common....

I think my scale has gone insane. It just gave me another different weight. I think I'm going to buy a new one today.  Don't count me this week.  I'm going to weigh tomorrow morning and get my new start weight and just go from that.

Starting weight: 259

Last weeks weight: 233

This week: 231

I can't believe I actually lost weight this week.  I haven't gone to gym once!  Stupid cold!  I need a new scale too.  I have to weigh myself at least 5 times to make sure it's right.  It starts off lower and each time it gradually increases until it get to the right weight.  Hmm, If I can lose 2 pounds this week without excerissing next week I'd like to lose !!  Good job everyone!!!

Loss loss loss!  Great job guys!  I got on the scale at the doctor's today, and was 178lbs PLUS sweatshirt, sweatpants, and sneakers!  So I'm thinking like, 176?

SW: 181lbs

CW: 176lbs

GW: 150lbs

One week: 1.5lbs! 

Keep it up guys!!!!
