Hi, so I am Christy and 21.  This is the first time I am trying this and hoping that it works.. 

I can say that I am a lazy idiot who eats too much, but I have actually stopped eating as much as I have been.. which is saying a lot, because I have always just ate when ever I wanted.   I have been off soda for the past three almost four weeks...  I keep drinking powerade and OJ, if there is none of that around I drink water or put crystal light in the water and drink that.  The biggest I have ever been was 256lbs and I lost about 30lbs and am now at 236lbs, but the problem with that is I lost that doing nothing for two weeks and finally started getting more active this past week when my niece started t-ball.     With lack of funds it's not like I can buy the healthy healthy foods, but I try to eat a bunch of fruit and vegetables when my family buys it.. I particularly love carrots. 


I think that's it......

Hello :]
I'm Heather and I'm 21 years old.

I've joined this community because I've always heard that having a support group is one of the best things you can do when you decide to lose weight. So I hope that I can gain support here. We're all here to become healthy and lose weight, right? Right now I've unfortunately reached my biggest ever. I'm 330 pounds. I never thought that I would get this big. I thought 260 pounds was bad enough .....

I'm a little confused as to how to go about this. Maybe more scared than confused. I used to always think that I could find an easy way out to losing weight - that the diet pills were magic, and that the exercise equipment would change me overnight. Sadly, anything worth obtaining is never easy. I believe that I have to get my mind right before I can get my body right - and its such a challenge. America has become the most overweight country ... You know how people always post success stories - about how there was something in their life that just triggered them to get up one day, bust their butt, and change their life. Why can't that happen to everyone? If we all had that "click", I'm sure we would be in a much happier place. The best thing I've ever heard - exercise is hard work that gets easier with time.

.......Here goes nothing.

Well, hello again. It's me, thelastdaily, rising up from the ashes like some shamed phoenix. Ha.

I want to apologize for my unexplained, unexpected disappearance. It was quite unprofessional of me and not up to my own personal standards.

After a lot of moving and a lot of losing the Snoctember challenge Fancy Chart to the computer failure gods I am back again and ready to give this another go.
New LiveJournal. Clean slate.

I would love to start up another challenge, but I first need to gather some information. Two questions:
1. Are you interested in participating in another weight loss challenge?
2. Are you interested in being somewhat of a co-moderator?
The somewhat co-moderator would be dedicated, positive, humorous and have the grammar skills of a god. ;)
(You don't have to answer the second question if you are not interested.)

I am looking to find a co-moderator or two, restructure our tags, and get another amazing weightbot challenge up and running once again.

Anyway, I hope to discover that this community is still alive and kicking.. or at least has the ability to regain its vitality once again.

Thank you for your time.

***I posted this entry in another weight loss commnity but I've been a member of this community for over a year and never posted here (that i remember) so I figured this would be fitting here also... I hope this community is still active and the weight loss challenges seem fun, will there be another one of those??

So it's been over a year since I've posted in this community. I never maintained my momentum when i was trying to lose weight, but a LOT has changed over the last year and I feel that now I'm in a place where I can actually be successful. (or so i hope) So I am here for support and to invite anyone here who is looking for support and wants to maybe try to do this together to come and read my journal as i journey to my goal! (that sounded SO corny, but I really mean it!)

So here I am:

Age: 27
Height: 5'4
Current Weight: 199
Target Weight: 135
STG: 170
LTG: 125 (would by my dream weight)
Why Now? and What is it that is motivating you to lose weight.: I bought a house in October, I am doing well at work and my life seems to be going in a good direction. The things I don't have in life right now is someone to spend it with and a happiness when i look in the mirror. And until I'm happy with me, i can't expect anyone else to be happy with me. So now that I am making more money than I have in the past I decided to spend the money on a treadmill for my home and turned a spare bedroom into my 'exercise room.' I feel motivation now that i've never felt before and just really hope that it sticks. Also there are some people in my life that I just feel the need to prove to them that I CAN do this. (and prove to myself) And there is always the selfish need to just want to impress people and have people tell you how great you look :) and I've never heard that and I want to. (oh and I have an identical twin sister who is 50lbs smaller than me, and that's really hard for me)

so if anyone is interested in doing this together or just being a support system for each other, please comment here or stop by my journal and let me know so i can add you. My journey starts tomorrow! (Which is ironic really, since a big part of why i'm doing this is to find love, and i am starting this whole thing on Valentine's day.....)

Round 2 anyone?

posted by: foreverxkisses in weightbot

I found the Snoctember Challenge incredibly helpful with my motivation. Since it ended I've been sort of lost.
I was wondering when the next challenge will be up, or if anyone knows of some other communities that have weight-loss challenges.

And of course a plea for the final Fancy Chart.

Anyone else with me?

X posted to healthyme and healthyus sorry if you're seeing it more than once. ._.

This is a great show from the BBC it's a little bit overly 'shocking' but it's good. If you like Jaime Oliver it's full of niceness.

: P Give it a watch, it's perfect for all of us!


They show you what the insides of a 25 stone man looks like. The man had donated his body to science after death. He weighed 350 lbs.
Here's a lb to stone converter: http://www.metric-conversions.org/weight/pounds-to-stones.htm

At my heaviest, I weighed 233 lbs, and that makes 16.64 stone.
Now I weigh exactly 13 stone, 182 lbs.

How about you?

Hi everyone!

I know that the most important thing is being healthy and feeling good about yourself, but lately, people I know have been telling me I look great and that they can’t believe how much weight I’ve lost. My sister has been telling me for months that I’m shrinking, but I didn’t believe her. She’s family, after all; she’s legally obligated to be nice to me.

Though my weight has gone down significantly in the last year, and I’ve had to buy new (Goodwill) clothes because my jeans keep falling down, it wasn’t until I decided to track down an older photo of myself and compare it to a recent one that I realized how far I'd come. RevealCollapse )

I really hadn’t thought I’d lost that much weight, but here was actual proof that people weren’t “just being nice.” I was so overwhelmed, I started crying. Not only was it good for my self esteem, I am now even more motivated to keep up with my workouts and eating right.

I gained all this weight in the nine years since I moved to Oregon; I am less than ten pounds away from my pre-move weight.
