  • February starting weight -241.6 February goal -236 Ultimate goal -155 4th -244 11th - 18th - 28th - Annoyed but so be it. Just more fuel to the fire. I also know I played my butt off at my bout yesterday and didn't have as much water as usual. So with plenty more water and some gym time, I'm hoping to see at least 240 next…

We had an event just before the weigh in that I figured I'd be holding onto water weight with. Chugging water and push on. Keep up the…

  • I did this 9 yrs ago on here. I'm so glad to see this is going strong! Life has given me a couple of kiddos and a broken leg over the past 7 yr which has given my weight loss and gain. So here we go. January starting weight -247 January goal -242 Ultimate goal -155 January 4th -247 January 11th - January 18th - January…
  • You sound a bit like me. I'm sitting at 247, I want to be 150ish. I'm also 33, married Oct 18th, 08. We have to girls. Before I got pregnant, I lost 50lbs, gained it back then lost 60lbs and have gained it back. I play roller derby, getting back into running and learning to lift.
  • I just passed my basic skills over here. I'm still figuring out all my stuff too. Just figured I'd say hi neighbor! I'm from Fariview Hgts IL on Confluence Crush.
  • You look great! Congrats on all your success!!
  • Welcome back! I too joined years ago and lost 50lbs, then got pregnant and gained it all back. I lost all but 15lbs of that and got pregnant again. Just had my second baby 2weeks ago so once the doctor releases me in a few weeks, I'll be back to losing that 50 again plus another 40-50... we can do this!
  • I just had baby 2 on March 11th. I gained about 50lbs this pregnancy and have around 100ish I'd like to lose in total. I was a runner and I've been itching to start c25k again..

  • Also, I'm determined to do the same coarse either this year or next year now that my pinched nerves are under control.
  • First off, congrats for signing up for one! That is huge on it's own! Second, I signed up for my first 1/2 for last Sept, I ended up walking quite a bit (due to pinched nerves in both my feet). There was a cut off of 3hrs 15min and I ended up crossing the finish (which my best friend begged them to keep it open for me) at…

  • If you wait for perfect conditions, you'll never go. I'm 5ft5in and 229lbs.. I go to the gym 5 days a week and I run both on their track and treadmills AND I run in shorts. I don't care what anyone else thinks, I'm bettering myself and that's what matters. Go for it!
  • It's your body, do what you want. If you enjoy cardio or even if you don't, adding some to your routine will help. I'm team cardio and weights.
  • Yep, I had pinched nerves in both feet. I ended up getting shots and had custom orthodic's made and the problem went away. It started off just numb in the right toes. Then eventually it was both feet and it became a burning sensation and had some pain to it. So I was referred to a podiatrist and once he took xrays to rule…

  • That's great!! It's such a wonderful accomplishment that many people can't do. I'm working on getting back to running a mile straight again. Yay you!
  • Hi everyone! My name is Amy but most on here call me 'Bru'. I started MFP in 2010, lost 50lbs, maintained for a year, got pregnant and I've been trying to find my way back to fitness while being a new mom. My goals this year are to work on endurance and run a mile without walking or stopping again, then I want to get back…
