    I have been looking for a group like this!!
    I currently weigh 262 pounds. I have always struggled with my weight - of course I didn't know it when I weighed 140 pounds that I was not overweight but I certainly felt like it. Now however, it is bad. I sunk a kayak - it had its own issues but I weigh so much the kayak was low enough to take on a lot of water and the kayak went under. You would think that would have done it for me but no, that did not do it. I am not sure what it was. I even have a full out home gym and that did not get me motivated. I guess I am tired of being tired. Tired of not fitting in clothes I like. Oh yeah and I might have signed myself up for a "princess run" in June - that is certainly motivating. I figure I need to get in good enough shape to not look ridiculous doing this run.
    My hobbies/enjoyments are cross stitching, crocheting, hanging out with friends, I am learning to grow veggies and I love to ride my motorcycle.
    I have two fur babies! Prissy who is a a torti and Spaz who is a mini panther (he is my picture).

    hi team. day #3 for me and i’m hanging on / no quitting in sight. lets go team. let’s push through.
  • At the doctor, I weighed nearly 300. Eep. True, I got a divorce in 2019 and moved twice, so there may have been some disordered eating in there.

    But, time for a change. I'll weigh myself again on Friday and see how I'm doing.

    I'm 46, have a fiance and a girlfriend, two grown sons, and am 5'7". Underneath the hundred extra pounds I'm not a sylph; I'm a solid farm girl with broad shoulders, strong legs and lots of curves. So I'm aiming for 180-ish, and I'd like a good part of that to be solid muscle. I don't mind at all being big if I'm big and strong.

    The other reason I'm aiming for 180-ish is that if I can get there and stabilize that will put me in the territory where I can get abdominoplasty done. I don't think I'll need help anywhere else, but I had three nine-pound babies in my twenties, and it split my abs and stretched my skin and that's going to take surgery to repair. I'm not ruling out a breast reduction sometime after that, as I wear a G cup and I do feel it in my shoulders. But, again, I need to get the weight off myself before I start getting help with reshaping myself into the woman I want to be for the rest of my life.

    Welcome on board celticck77 and theleadmare, celtic, I'm glad to meet someone else who rides, what do you have for a bike ? leadmare, I know how you feel, I was born and raised in the white mts of NH and with 3 older brothers, I was taught everything from splitting wood to greasing tractors. I look at myself and know it's not a fat, there's muscle under all that fluff.

    I would love to be apart of this group! I recently got laid off and have been eating out of boredom and gained 13 lbs in 2 months (222 lbs😩) I'm on track so far and have been doing good for 2 days. My bf and I are supporting each other in our weight loss, she's doing keto but I'm just eating healthier and cutting back on carbs.

    A group to help with sharing experiences and accountability. This is exactly what I want and need. So, hopefully you all will have me because I NEED IT and am 2020 Determined to lose this weight!

    I want me back, I want my body back, I want to buy cute clothes again, I want to look in the mirror and be happy at my reflection, I want to get in the line to drive go carts at fun parks and not be afraid that I may not be able to buckle the seat belt when its my turn to ride (sad I know), I want to wear high heels like I use to and feel beautiful and have more energy and be healthy. I want to make this change for me and my babies too.

    Starting Weight: 224.4 lbs.
    I weigh in on Thursdays!

    Hi! Day 2 almost done. I ate so healthy today! Saw my endocrinologist today and told her I commit to losing 20+ pounds by my next appointment in three months, but I really hope it's more. My knee felt quite a bit better today. The treadmill is coming next Monday! I think that I will enlist the help of my sister in taking a before picture tomorrow. I'll check in tomorrow!

    I started a new 30 day challenge this month to track what I eat every day. I'm trying to implement good habits one month at a time through these challenges. Last month, I developed a habit of taking vitamins daily - it should be so simple but I've never been good about vitamins. I'm using a Commit30 fitness planner and so far I like it quite a bit. In order to improve my diet and increase my exercise, I know that vitamins will be more important than ever so I decided to start with that.

    To support the food tracking challenge, I'm planning a meal prep session for this Sunday. I'm hoping that it's a win-win combination. By prepping in advance, I can setup the foods in MyFitnessPal in advance and then tracking what I eat should be a lot easier if I stick to plan. But I'm going to make foods I actually like, just use portion control and make some healthy substitutions where I can.

    My husband always tells me that there is a two week delay so just stick with it and by mid-month I should see some results. So here's where I'm at now and we'll see how that Jan 16 number looks! :wink:

    Sooo I went a little high on the calorie count yesterday. I did a big workout on my total gym so I had extra burned calories but I did not intend to use them. Not terrible but about 300 calories over. Not beating myself up just being accountable to myself. I need to have a plan for dinner better, breakfast and lunch are good for the most part. Although I just realized I forgot to bring my carrots to snack on today.
