    Here is my progress from about a month ago! I had only lost 5 pounds at that point and was a little discouraged. Looking at the difference in photos really helped me stay motivated!

    Good luck on your journey and feel free to friend me :)
    OH!! I'm 5'7 and 157 in my "before" pics.

    5ft6.5 - start weight 175
    finish weight 125 (though I fluctuate as high as 135 and back again)


    My size 16(UK) baggy jeans were skin tight and uncomfortable but nothing else would fit.



    A size 8(UK) dress that was too big for me! There's about a two year difference between the pics, it took a while, but it was worth it!

    For the first time in my life, NO cankles!

    Start: 176
    Current: 173
    Low weight: 160
    High weight: 189

    I lost about 30 pounds dieting before, and have gained 13 back. I'm trying to get motivated again, and apparently am almost at the EXACT same place as you (my goal weight is also 140, dream goal weight is 130). I'll keep you posted on my progress :)

    Friend me if you want!

    I'm 5'6 and I used to weigh around 156lbs in 2009 and begining of 2010.
    Right now I weigh 123lbs!
    I've lost a total of 33lbs and I want to be 120lbs. I'm working on toning, especially my abs because I still have plenty of belly fat. I work out 7 days a week, two of those days I go to karate class and on Fridays I rest.

    I haven't seen my weight drop in a few weeks because I notice I drop about 2 pounds a month. It's incredibly slow but I feel I'm loosing inches.

    I'm positive that by Christmas I'll be in amazing shape if I keep this up.

    So never give up! It might seem like a slow ride but in the end you'll be helthier,leaner and a whole lot happier!

    ( I'll post before and after pics after I hit my 120lbs goal :P )

    I'm 5'7" and had always been 120 to 130 until I was 30. After pregnancy and the loss of my gallbladder, I"ve climbed up to my high of 243. I'm sick of it. I want my life back. So, I too, have a very very long way to go.

    Looking to friend people like me to give and get encouragement. Just starting in June, it's easier to lose at first - but to continue when the lose slows is really hard.

    My starting weight on June 19, 2012 was probably about 188 and today it was 183.6. I've also lost 3.5 inches and everybody has said that they can see some results already! :)
