    Nine years ago today exactly (17-Nov-2005) I weighed in for the first time and discovered I weighed 260lbs. Then I lost 100lbs in a year, and maintained around 160-170lbs until 2012. Unfortunately, I then struggled through 2 serious illnesses, both of which resulted in weight gain due to medication side effects and becoming almost completely housebound for several months on two occasions. I bounced back up to 208 in mid-2013, which was rather upsetting because I'd always hoped never to see 200+ again on the scale, but there was nothing much I could do about it. For the last 18 months I've been either losing or maintaining, depending on my health situation (with a brief period of gaining again due to medication). Right now, however, I'm back at 173lbs and aiming to get back to 160lbs. It's quite slow at the moment, though!

    196.6 (5'9") on May 28 2014. Today (November 17 2014), 161.6... it's really astounding to think back on the things I used to eat without abandon, and the sheer amount of alcohol I'd consume. Both influenced each other, and were vicious perpetrators of non-stop weight gain for me. Terrible.

    175 at 5'4" :( about this time last year.

    Currently at 158.5 and hope one day to get down to 110-130 range, depending how I look. Still about 10lb away from being a healthy BMI.

    Around April this year I was 155, but then had a very stressful house move in which I very nearly ended up homeless (agent for the new place terminated the contract 24hrs before I was due to move in, and only had 5 days left on the lease in the place I was in) and my arthritis started playing up something chronic so I gained 10lb and then maintained around 163-165 for a few months.

    Got myself back in the saddle this month and have lost another 7lb, but still kicking myself that I could be near my goal weight by now if April-October had been okay.

    Just as the title says, what is the heaviest weight you've reached in your whole life?

    Sigh, this one, 160. Not a lot compared to some people's heaviest, but it's a lot for me. Which is why I'm back on MFP, as much as I hate tracking calories/activity. I've gone up 2 sizes over the past 3 years and I can't keep up this crawl; I have to draw the line...and get back into all the gorgeous clothes I bought and then "outgrew"!

    Mine was 230 pounds, but it was due to the birth control that I was on at the time. Once, I got off that, I literally lost 30 pounds within 45 days. My highest not being on it has been 195. I am down to 160. I wanted to originally wanted to go down another 20 pounds, but as I get closer, I will make up my mind then. I have started strength training to help get tones, so that will change how things look.

    Right at 3-bills. I got down to 209, but that's too small for me. I'd like to be around 218-225. Right now, I'm back up to 256. That'll change soon.

    338lbs. I'm currently at 286 and dropping.

    I never plan to get over 300 again and after I drop below 200lbs I will never be that heavy again as well. My goal is to get somewhere between 145-155lbs but we'll see how I feel as I get closer to my goal. I would rather weight a little more and be fit and healthy than weigh less and just be skinny.

    300lbs earlier this year. Now I'm down to 231.6 as of yesterday and continue to drop.

    My heaviest on the scale was 240, but I would guesstimate 260 for the times I would not consider getting on a scale. I'm down to 190ish, Thank God :)

    159lbs was the highest and I hit that this year. I'm down to 152lbs at the moment - I decided to take it nice and easy because in the past I would work out two, three maybe even four times a day and then barely ate a thing. It was completely unhealthy. Now, I'm just being more careful about what I eat rather than forbidding myself from eating and I just started working out twice a day because that's what I've been used to my whole life from when I ran track and played volleyball competitively.

    Highest known was 260, although it was probably higher since I refused to ever look at a scale. I lost at least 50 of that before MyFitnessPal, maintained for several years, and then joined and am now at 175.6.
