    I was a bit inconsistent with my weight loss efforts during 2015, so I'd really like to attack 2016 with a bit more dedication and finally lose that last 20lbs!

    Support for the above person: Chris, it looks like you're so close to your goal- keep it up, you can do it!

    My weight loss for 2015 was great, I started in March but took a few breaks here and there for vacations/holidays. Hoping to shed the last of it in 2016!

    Total weight lost: 15 lbs in 2014 and 23 lbs in 2015, so 38 lbs lost so far - still aiming for 199lbs : )
    Got slowed down on my journey by needing foot surgery and have been trapped at home since October and only just getting towards being able to walk again unaided.

    Support for the above person: mzjezz0828 - I like your determination - focus on small intermediate goals. You can make changes which will work!

    I'll be using Friday as my weigh in for this. I'm just starting again so I'm not sure if I'll reach my goal this first month but it's just the first step in the journey.

    @carolinelcorcoran That's awesome that your already 38 pounds down! Keep up the good work that got you this far already! You can do it :)

    Struggles: I don't eat meals. I supplement meals with snacks. I've been small all my life and after having my baby I just can't get the weight off. On top of eating snacks for breakfast lunch and dinner. I don't eat breakfast food or lunch or dinner meals. Id rather eat a bag of Doritos then to sit down and eat a meal and I'm constantly sad about it. I want to do better and be better for me and my two boys. I can't keep eating snacks like they're meals.

    Total weight lost: I've lost about 14lbs by cutting down on portion size and being a bit more wise about what i'm eating. Decided to make myself more accountable by getting back to MFP and then finding this thread, as the closer I get to my goal, I know it's going to be harder to lose!
