I used to weigh 170lbs and I was so confident and felt comfortable in my own skin I then gained 20lbs and shortly after I had to get surgery for a ruptured appendix they had to cut from my belly button down its a hand length scar I was in the hospital for 8 days and I gained weight and lost muscle I then weighted 205lbs and I felt so fat and uncomfortable in my own skin I was only 19 after that I got onto the birth-control shot and gained 25lbs I worked out every once in a while but gave up because I wasn't loosing fast enough DUMB IDEA!! I now weight 265.4lbs and I am only 22 years old and TTC my first child. I have been working out with a friend but not really losing anything.. I need help, ideas, etc on how to lose this weight. my first goal weight is to be 235lbs then I will go from there I want to get down to at least 190lbs I want to weight 170 again but honestly I would be happy at 200lbs I just cannot be the me I am now. I need a change, I need to be me again not this person who is always in sweats until she leaves the house who feels fat and uncomfortable. I am not the me I used to be and I am still so young.. PLEASE HELP!

These photos are from today.

Hi! Welcome!
Do you have a game plan? Eating\diet? , counting calories/ bmr?, what and when to exercise?
Suggestion right away if you drink pop stop. I lost 5 pounds just from quiting drinking it here and there. Water is your friend! Take your weight divide it by 2 that's how many oz of water to drink to loose weight!

I started at 229 one year ago. Now I'm 167. You can do it too. I count calories on myfitnesspal for free and I exercise 6 days per week. I do workout DVDs and exercise bike.

Good luck! If you join myfitnesspal add me I'm stefaniee83 on there.

You can do it girl! We can be buddies. I'm 22, TTC my first child for 5 yrs and weigh 251 lbs. I looked good when I was 190 but I want to get down to 150. I've lost 6 lbs since January (would have been more but I've been sick for almost 2 weeks now). Do you have myfitnesspal ? What kind of things are you doing to lose weight?

I don't really have a game plan =/ I have been working out at night with a friend, We do Jillian Michaels some nights, Zumba some nights, and a 30 minute pilates DVD some nights. It just depends. I don't count calories and I am unsure of what BMR is? I drink soda probably 2 times a week if that but I know I need to stop for good. Thank you!

I like Jillian michaels DVDs so I usually do one of hers 2-4 times per week. I also like billy blanks. Another favorite of mine is Kickbox bootcamp on Netflix it sounds like the workouts you're doing are good! :)

I keep forgetting that netflix has work outs on it. I do have netflix I will have to remember to look them up. I do the good work outs it just doesn't seem like they work that great. I'll lose a few pounds but then I gain it back. I need to eat healthyer

You can find me on myfitnesspal. My sn is HopefulMyra. I love that site so I'm very active on it. I love Zumba and I'm about to start doing the Brazilian Butt Lift.
