Weight loss is something you have to really want for yourself...period!  The motivation has to come from inside of you.  Allow yourself small treats at times but don't go overboard.  Make sure you have healthy snacks around like fruits, veggies, lowfat cheese, etc.  Good luck!

Quoting card512002:

I have tried eating granola bars and oats and things like that but when I start feeling hungry I just grab chips or cookies or what ever is around that is sweet.  I just cant seem to keep my hands off of the things that sweet.  I just seem to be on auto-pilot and just grab and eat.  I do exercise alittle but just dont seem to have the time to do it much.  My boss and I have started walking on one of our breaks in the morning.  I am just having a hard time and get mad at myself for doing it.

Welcome to the group!  We are here for support and encouragment and all we ask is that you don't give up!  Fill your diet with fruits, veggies, lean protein, whole grains, and lowfat dairy.  Drink LOTS of water!  Little to no processed food!  Find some sort of activity/exercise that you like to do and go from there.  Good luck mama!

You can do it! I know how hard it is, I started at 322 and I'm down 57lbs. I'm still.going 6 months later! If i can do it anyone can! Make realistic small goals and congratulate yourself when you reach them.

Quoting Ashley.Burress:

 I guess I'll be the biggest to join this challenge!


Todays weight: 326lbs (I was 345lbs after I gave birth to my son.)
Pant size: 26/28


Goals: To continue walking 4 miles but to do it daily, I've been doing it every other day and have skipped some. I want to get to 300lbs which is my short term goal. Once I've reached that my long term goal would be to reach 200, then to stop around 175 or so.
I realize, given my current weight and size I'll have a long way to go and will have to get a tummy tuck, etc. But I'm determined to lose this weight and I will not give up! =)
