    I started with a personal trainer because I really need a push to lose this weight. I also found someone here to go to classes with at the gym. I just got back from a spin class today.

    After being heavy most of my life, I lost about 55 lbs. between 2008-2009. My struggle has been keeping it off while starting a new teaching career! My weight has crept up a little this year, and I'd like to lose about 8 lbs. this summer to get back to my healthy weight.

    I lost my weight by counting calories in-calories out on www.myfitnesspal.com . You can find me there under the same username. :) I used to log in faithfully, now I get back on if I need to check in and re-group with my eating.

    OK, I just got off the scale... six pounds down :)

    I haven't been this weight in Kira's lifetime.

    I'm not where I want to be yet, but I am SO happy!

    Yay Alice & Mrs. C!

    I just got back from vacation... I put on two pounds. Not terrible, considering. Workout tonight includes mowing my lawn - it has apparently decided to take over the neighborhood in my absence!

    Yay, Alice!!!! Today, my weight was **1.2. I'd still like to lose another 10 lbs, but I'd be happy with 5!

    I'm just trying to lose one more pound. I've lost 49, but can't seem to get rid of this last stubborn pound! Ultimately, my goal is to lose 8-9 more pounds, but really if I just hit one more, I'll be satisfied.

    IRON willpower!!!!

    Now I just have to stay on the computer long enough that I can't catch him as he's pulling out the driveway to change my mind!!

    I have 4.5 to almost 5 mos to lose as much weight as I can. I know I've lost at least 5 pounds recently.

    Anyone have any tips other than the usual eat less, exercise more, & eliminating sugars, etc.?

    Three's really no magic or secret. Watching what is going in and moving more is really the only way.

    Special occasion coming up?

    I am getting back on the wagon after losing 46 pounds from October 2013 to March 2014. Went from a women's size 20 to a misses size 12. I'm in a 14/16 now from slacking. Not much weight back, but out of shape compared to before.
