Anyone have 100+ pounds to lose?



  • kayfaeikayfaei Posts: 251Member Member Posts: 251Member Member
    Hello all. I have about roughly 176lbs to lose. Least that would put me at my goal weight of 215lbs. Andi know to some that might still be a lot but im 5'11and very thick boned. I think I would carry that weight well however i am not sure until i get there. :)

    My starting weight in 2015 was 423lbs. I dropped down to 321 then im not sure what happened the holidays hit and i just never seemed to get back on the bandwagon and gained 70 back ( but not all thank God)
    So now i am at it again wanting to go from 391lb to 215.

    So feel free to add me if you would like. I know it's so hard trying to do this alone

    You’ve taken the very important first step, well done for doing that. It’s definitely difficult to do make that first step but once you’re mentally prepared for the challenge, it seems to make it easier. Best of luck to you. :)

    Hey everyone,

    I have about 100 pounds to lose, I had lost 90 but went off the wagon back in July due to depression of a personal matter. I do not want to let that be my excuse anymore and I could use all the support can get to get back on track, I have gained back over 30 of that 90 so my first goal is to lose that again and then go on from there. Feel free to add me so that we can help support each other in our journey! :)

    Starting date: Dec 24, 2018
    Starting weight: 412
    Goal weight: 180-200
    Current weight: 331
    Weight loss as of 3-2019: 81

    Strategy for weight loss: Low (sub1000) Calorie diet and some exercise that is increasing over time.

    Reasons for weight loss: Self hate and I don't want to feel that way anymore. I am trying to make myself into a happier person and a part of that is my self-image and how I feel about myself on the inside as well as the outside.

    I lost about 100 on here about 5 years ago and felt fantastic. But after an injury it all went downhill. Gained it back plus some. I'm finally back at it and looking to lose 150. Would love to have some new friends to help motivate me and vice versa.

    I think most women my size would want to lose 100 lbs, maybe more...but I’m aiming for 20 right now. When I get there, I want to enjoy the moment before I think about the next step...which will probably be another 20.

    I need to loose about 100 if I want to get back to a healthy weight on my 5 ft frame. I have a long way to go and have fallen off the weight loss wagon before. Good luck to you beautiful people, we CAN do this!

    Hello. I started at 325 and now weigh 296. I want to lose at least 100 more pounds. I suffer from lymphedema in both my legs due to cancer surgery 30 years ago that included removing the lymph nodes in my groin. Over the years as my condition got worse I just figured I couldn't do much to lose weight because exercise made my condition flare up with an infection called cellulitis. However I finally just decided to try this app. I input the fact that I do not exercise and was given a calorie count to stay below to achieve weight loss. I never even knew a person could lose weight without exercise! I do have a question though. Do I ever have to re-enter my new weight to keep losing? Or do I just keep staying below the same calorie count until I reach my goal?
