    I've 108 lbs to loose

    I'm 5 ft 1 and 227 lbs

    Weighing and logging my food earlier in the day helps me to stay on track

    <<<< There's my b & a! It just took persistence and determination. I've lost 135 lbs. My health motivated me and quality of life, but if you rely soley on motivation it's not going to happen. Health needs to become a habit. Good luck.

    I lost 100 lbs in 9 months. I did it by cleaning up my eating and getting serious the gym. I got most of my information on what to eat/do from

    Hey there!

    I've been using MFP for a little over a week, and this site for only a few days, but I've been working on my weight for years.

    So far I've lost over 200 lbs. Over time I'll be documenting my journey on this site with through the blog. If you'd like, check out my profile and/or send me a friend request! (That goes for everybody.) ;)

    Double that and you've got what I'm doing. Keep finding successes in each day. One day at a time, one meal at a time. I'm measuring. Sometimes it's what shows moreso than weight loss each week.

    I've lost over 100 lbs (118.8 to be exact). I started in 2012. However, I've hit my own obstacles to get to where I am today.

    • Segment between blue lines: I restricted my food choices way to much when I first started. I eventually couldn't sustain the plan I had been on and when I stopped I gained some of the weight I had lost back. This was before I discovered MyFitnessPal. It's also one of the reasons I don't recommend people over restricting their food choices.
    • Segment between red lines: Pregnant with second child. Enough said.

    Today is my third day. I am motivated now but I lost weight and gained it all back before so it is tough to believe that I can do it all again an then keep it off this time! I'm just glad to be ready to try again. Hearing your successes keeps me going. Great job everyone!
