    Yes! Can I ask what you did to lose the weight and how long? Did you use the calories mfp gave you also? Thank you! We have similar start weights and goal weights so just curious

    Me too!

    @AmyLouPelt - I definitely hear you! I'm not fond of cooking either, especially since it is only me and my husband. It's very hard to scale down my cooking when I've always had a large family of good eaters to cook for in the past. Support and possibly sharing ideas for meal planning/recipes would be awesome!

    Please add me. :) I'm 47 and 5'3".

    My highest weight ever: 299
    Starting Weight in Jan 2016: 286
    Current Weight: 234

    I don't have a specific target goal. I'd like to end up somewhere in the 130s, but overall health is my main focus and I will be pleased to be somewhere under 150. In the end, weight is just a number and I think that as I get fitter and smaller the specific number will be less relevant to me. My real goals are to be off all medications (diabetes & blood pressure), out of plus sizes, healthier and more active.

    I too, hate to cook!! I have recently changed my diet and cut out all sugar, eat mostly organic and gluten processed foods. It has only been 1-1/2 weeks, and my 5 lb weight loss is probably mostly water, but I feel this is a change in diet I can sustain permanently. The problem is that I just HATE to cook, the foods I am currently eating will get boring after a while, and the pre made meal delivery plans that adhere to these dietary restrictions are just TOO expensive for me. Additionally, as a single mom, I just don't have the time on the weekends to do meal prep for the week. This is a major struggle for me!! Anyone have any possible solutions?

    I started on 3/11/16 at my highest weight ever 222 lbs I am 5'1 so as you may imagine 222 lbs looked even heavier, I am currently at 189 lbs and my goal is 140 lbs so I have about another 50 ish lbs to go!

    I started at 263 and now at 255 ... it is hard for me to do any exercise at this time due to some health issues but I am getting them taken care of as well as adding some lighter exercise to my better days and slowly but surely losing the weight I need to lose to keep stress and fat off my liver! Feel free to add me if any would like. Remember, no matter what we are all beautiful in our own special way. <3

    My highest was 333. I'm currently at 302 so close to breaking out of the 300's. Next month I should be working my way down in 290s. I used to fluctuate between 200-250 most of my adult life. After some med changes in 2010 or so I started gaining weight. Then was on anxiety meds that put more on. My goal is 150-160. I'll adjust when closer because I enjoy lifting weights and I may not care if I'm even more than that if my clothing size and inches are in my ideal range.

    Joined a gym in April and just keeping it going. Don't want to stop the fitness building part because I know it will be a key part of keeping it off. I've been prediabetic for a few years and trying to reverse that. So far in the last two months I've been able to cut my medication for that in half and my fasting is nearing normal so a little ways to go before I can stop those meds. My bp pill will be different because I have to wean off that with medical supervision because of it being a beta blocker. And on my home meter is sometimes is still in low hypertension or prehypertension ranges WITH my full dosages. I know from the past though when my weight gets lower it drops. So it's just a matter of time and losing more and more. I suspect I've been PCOS since puberty. I have a majority of the symptoms but I don't only gain weight in my tummy area. I carry all over so no Dr would ever take me seriously. I do limit and cut out as much carbs as I can. I'd love to do a paleo/whole 30 plan for a couple months and see if it helps reduce but so far I keep my carb macro percentage at 40% and I'm losing. Some with PCSO have to go a lot LOWER. I have become quite active with my workouts though.
