I lost 150 starting at age 59. It took 2 1/2 years and I’ve been maintaining for 2+. I’ve had goals in many areas in addition to the scale—fitness, new exercises, more weight, more reps, new recipes, new ingredients, walking steps, new routes, etc. I was always successful in a few areas at any point. I lost weight every month of my journey but not every day or every week.
There are lots of people on here who’ve lost a lot of weight and maintained. Read the success stories and learn from others.
Yes it’s a long hard rewarding journey. You are setting up habits for life, fo the process never really ends. Never going back to where I started. Now at 63 I’m in the best shape of my life and can do things I never even dreamed of before.

I'm on the path myself. I'm about 290 down, with 30 to go in around 2 years. Best of luck to you!

You read that right! I am looking for friends and partners to come with me on my 150 pound weight loss journey. I can't wait to meet you.

I'm in the same boat. When I started this journey in May I was at least double the weight I should of been. So my goal is to lose half my bodyweight, 135 lbs.

I have to lose a human too. 125 pounds. Not quite sure how I got here (actually I have a good idea) but here I am. My goal is 175. Not sure where it lies within BMI (I'm 6 feet tall) but I was there once and felt great

I need to lose half a human now. I've lost 64 lbs toward my goal. That means I've lost a nine year-old already! That's a great mental image; me carrying around a nine year-old clinging to my back. No wonder I couldn't exercise, walk up the stairs, or fit into nice clothes. I've lost that kid, and now I've gotta get rid of his sister. She's got her legs wrapped around my middle, and she's holding on tighter. She's gotta go!
Y'all can do this! Give those extra humans their walking papers, and evict them from your life!
