Camped out at 188lbs. I'll probably gain a few more this weekend, as it's my sister's birthday and I'm not missing out on cake. Start again on Monday.

I get my program set up on 13th March for the gym.
I've already started 1 class. There's a few others I want to do but I'm going to see how I go with this one first.
My friend and her mum are also looking at setting up a walking group to do some of the walking races so I'll need to start training for that. But the first one's a relatively short one and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do it in a decent amount of time if I start training myself now. I'm going to start by walking home from school (TAFE) at least once a week.

Hello to all. I too am trying to lose weight. We started something like "Biggest Loser" at my job. Everyone had to put in $10 and at the midway point if you have gained any or stayed the same weight you have to put in another $10. There aren't a whole lot of people in it so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. My main goal is to lose about 110-120 lbs. I have a ways to go. My short term goal right now is to get down to at least 200 if not lower than that by my wedding day in September. Well good luck to everyone in this "battle of the bulge."

I haven't started walking home from TAFE yet. I've been to the gym a few times though. I have a personal training session on Friday and my assessment and program on the 13th.

Some friends of mine have decided to start up a walking group to go in some of the walking races that are around. The first one we are aiming for is in May and is 4k's. So my new fitness goal is to walk 4k's without stopping. I'm not really fussed about the time but I'd prefer to be able to do it in under an hour.

I've set up tables on my computer where I can keep track of different things like what I weigh, how far I've walked and what excercise I've done each day.

I also started keeping a food diary which is currently in its last week but I think I might make another one up so I can continue to keep track of what I've eaten

I had an assessment with a personal trainer today. I'm down to 109 kilos. I didn't start doing any trainging because I need to get clearance from the specialist for it. So that she knows how hard she can push me.

Hi Folks, I hope I am not too late to join in? If so, let me know.
I have started to go to the gym with a friend after work twice a week. Last week (our first week of starting) we could only go once because of meetings at the end of the day.
In addition to needing to get fit, I have weight to lose, lots of it.

So, if I am not too late to join you in this venture, hi.

Dotb, it is virtually never too late to join in on anything here in the forums! This is a friendly bunch of people and very welcoming. The only time you would find it too late is if a thread has been locked down and you will know because you will not be able to post to it.

Still camping in the 180's. My sister came bouncing into mom's house yesterday to inform us that she'd joined a club. She looked at me and said "Oh, they'll be calling you too.". So I may try that to improve some more.

I got sick for a while so got out of my routine. I'm going to try and start getting back in to the routine.

I went to see my specialist yesterday and she gave me clearance for the gym so now I can start my personal training and also work a bit harder at the program I was given.

I stopped doing the class as my friend got a job so couldn't come with me. I was thinking about going back but I really wanted to do it twice a week but due to other commitments I can only do it once a week.

I got weighed at the hospital and I'm down to 107 point something and that was with jeans on. So I'm probably about 107 with a tracksuit which was what I was wearing for my last weighing.

I've been checking through the old posts on this thread, everyone's doing really well.

Jane - Since this thread started you've lost about a stone.

I'm not sure what everyone else is down to but from what I can tell you've all either lost weight or at the very least you haven't gained any.

I looked at my goals when I started which were to lose 10% of my weight ant I've actually managed it. Plus a little extra.

I'm still looking at being back in double figures by my birthday in August. I'd prefer July as I'm looking at having a joint birthday party with my friend which I want a new dress for. I've got the pattern for it, I've just got to get it made.

http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V8150.htm?search=8150&page=1 - I'm hoping this link works. This is the dress I want to wear for my party. I'll still be wearing size 20-22 but considering that it's probably a pretty clingy dress I don't mind.

In most clothes currently I'm basically between size 16 and 20(Au)

Has it really been February since I posted in here? Oh dear!!

Don't worry, my weight hasn't piled back on - not all of it anyway! Life has been very busy lately and I have been "snacking" over the weekends, as well as holidays.

Enough of the excuses At the moment I am eight stone and 12 pounds. Although I have put on roughly half a stone since the beginning of the year, it doesn't matter because I can easily lose it.

I want to focus on December now, lose a few pounds before Christmas. And I promise I will try and post in here every week!

It is so easy to slide, I know all about that, so yes Jane after your mammoth effort you just need to knock off those few pounds while it is still not a large amount.

I've fallen behind, it's been at least a month if not 2 since I went to the gym last.

I'm trying to motivate myself to go but I never quite get there.

I'm up to 63kg, but I also know why. I've been snacking a lot and as it's winter I haven't had much of an opportunity to exercise. I'm trying to cut down on the snacking and at least get back to 60, where I'll still have my curves but not too much excess fat.

After losing 40 some pounds and going down to 80 pounds I have gained back ten so am pleased with that and won't try and put on any more than 5 more pounds.

Being this slim and short if I get too heavey my chronic back troubles start up again so I am avoiding doing that if I can help it.

My Doctor says I am in good shape so I am glad of that.
Means I don't have to run marathons.

I'm hovering around 190lbs, dressed and with stuff in pockets ( I know that's no excuse). I need to start exercising again, I've let it slide recently.

Still at about 62-63, but I have been exercising a little more and eating a little less and I think I'm on the right path. I have to save money quite a bit now, so the temptation to buy snacks has decreased.

You're on the same diet as me lioness. The "I can't afford it diet"

Well my last goal didn't work. Not sure what I am now. Haven't weighed myself properly since last time I was at the hospital.

But I haven't done much in the way of exercise. I was too busy doing placement.

That said I've just started a 12 week program which I've actually extended to a 14 week program as that means it ends at New Year's.

In the following weeks I will be going to the gym at least once a week, hopefully more.

My main goals are to lose another 10% of my weight which will bring me down in to the 90's and be able to walk 5km/h for 10 minutes (this is actually what is on my program but I haven't quite got there yet.)

I haven't got access to scales anymore so probably don't know how I'm going to track my weight loss but I'll work something out.

It's that time again! My "heavy month" when I eat more or less what I want - in moderation I hasten to add! - is fast approaching, December is always a hard time for dieters. But although my weight has be fluttering between eight and half and nine stone these past few months, I am still Eight Stone Ten Pounds
