And this week I am Eight Stone Nine Pounds (121 pounds) , lost a pound in two weeks. It is coming up to my four year "anniversary", at the end of August 2003, I was 13 stone (and probably more). What a difference four years can make If I get to eight and a half stone or below, I'd be over the moon, so I could "flutter" between eight and a half and nine stone during December

I have never posted in here about weight loss but I have been doing some excerise and walking and I have gone from a size 14 down to a size 8 which thrills me to death as I haven't been a size 8 in _______ years.
I hope to get down a few more lbs and maybe into a size 5.
I will keep working at it.

Ah, but that won't mean a great deal to many of us with dress sizes varying so much. Would that be an American 8? The UK 8 is smaller than the US one. I have no idea about the Australian sizing although I would guess it might be along the same lines as the UK one.

So how about posting actual weights? How much have you lost and how much do you want to lose?

OK I went from 130 to 106 and I need to get down to 98lbs.

As I am on the vertically challenged side that will be perfect for me and will also lessen the stress on my back so will have less pain.

I know that sounds slim but for me it is the perfect weight.

I'm not sure what most of this is in Kilograms, but I'm trying to lose a little excess fat and at the moment I weigh about 59Kgs. The problem for me is getting motivated and stopping snacking. I'm forever guilty of putting things off, especially when it's cold outside.

EDIT: which the weight converter just told me was 130.1 pounds.

Either I need to grow or lose weight.

So maybe I can join in here, too.

In 1998, when I was 18, I fell into a very deep depression after my younger brother died, and ended up putting on about 50 pounds in that first year. The next 5 years or so were spent in an emotionally abusive relationship, during which I packed on even more pounds, and the depression just didn't stop even after that... I finally topped out last year at about 275 pounds, US size 24.

I've been trying to get healthier in slow, tiny steps because my emotional state is still pretty fragile and I beat up on myself badly when I try to do something and fail... so I'm not setting goals, or denying myself dessert, or doing anything that I can "fail" at, I'm just trying to make little changes here and there. I wasn't expecting it to have much effect...

But today, I weigh 230 pounds and wear US size 18.

Amazing... I still have pizza and ice cream a few times a month, ...I had baklava and a fruit smoothie for an afternoon snack yesterday. I can't be bothered to go to the gym, because I'd rather be playing video games or reading. But I'm still losing weight - 30 pounds since January, and counting. I'm really not quite sure how it's happening, but it is.

Giving up all soda, even diet soda, for water has made a HUGE difference. So has going for short walks after dinner a couple times a week. I've been trying to satisfy my sweet cravings with fruit instead of cheesecake. That's really about all I've done... except last week, I bought a bicycle and I'm hoping to get lots of riding in before it starts raining for the winter. (For those of you who may not know, the Pacific Northwest - Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia - are famously rainy. I have a friend who moved here from Ireland and she said it felt like home!)

Anyway, there's my story, and I will post updates on my slow but steady progress every now and then (though not every week, because minor fluctuations happen and I'm not going to stress over them) and hopefully you all will be so kind with your support.

I lied... I do have one goal. I'd like to be under 200 pounds by the time I turn 30 in January 2010 - but I think I should be able to manage that.

Congratulations to Jane and everyone else out there making this journey... May I come with you?

A bit late, but I couldn't get to the scales on saturday. I'm sure I would've weighed less anyway, it was my sisters birthday tea last night, and I ate LOTS.

Anyway this week I weighed in at 57kgs/125.5482 pounds.

I guess the bike riding and the mowing the lawn yesterday did do something.

No weight measure for me today, but how about we talk measurements? Over the weekend I biked 5 miles and did some light hiking across riverbeds and climbing steep rock embankments.

Here's a comparison chart - the changes look small, but they're happening, nice and steady.

This is from 12 August 2004 to 20 August 2007:

Weight: 270 lbs -> 230 lbs
Neck: 15.5 in -> 15.25 in
Bicep: 16.5 in -> 16 in
Tricep: 11.25 in -> 11 in
Bust: 51 in -> 51 in (that has fluctuated back and forth, dipping down to 50 and then up to 52 even as I steadily lose weight... so no clue what's happening there.)
Ribcage: 44.5 in -> 42.75 in
Waist: 48 in -> 46 in
Hips: 52 in -> 51 in
Thigh: 25.25 in -> 21.66 in
Calf: 18.5 in -> 18 in

Body fat % has dropped from 46% to 42%. Slow, gradual changes that I can keep up in the long-term. It may be slower than heck, but I know I can stick with it and I know it's made results in my life already.

Lioness, I don't mean to be personal, but how tall are you?

57kg is getting a bit low for an adult female of child-bearing age. It depends on your age too, but don't get too carried away. Being too thin can be as unhealthy as being too chubby.

Wow, good job jessena. I've been walking, or rather trying to, it's been so hot lately, at least 2-5 miles a day. A friend of mine didn't give up any food, ate the way she always does, just walked more, and lost a lot of weight over a period of time. You're right, slow and easy does it. Keep up the good work. I didn't measure myself but maybe I should. I know that the walking has helped take inches off my waist.

Took a physical for work the other day.

Not sure of kilogram/stone conversions (forgive me!) but being 6'4", was stoked to be down from 210 to 188. Exactly where I should be, got almost all of quickness and vertical jump (as soon as this heat wave dies, looking forward to getting back on the basketball court!) back too! Not to mention a cholesterol level of 146. Very stoked on that!

Was a little stressed from a LONG time in the waiting room prior so pulse was up around 48, usually at around 42. Oh well.

Could somebody tell me what stoked means, please? Is it something akin to 'delighted'?

Delighted, excited, whoohoo! Something along those lines.

And Schoonie, yea for you! Good job. And a 48 pulse? You're nice and sloooow.

Exactly, you got it!

And taesma, like I said, it SHOULD be at 42 like before. The place I go for my physicals, they said it was almost the lowest they'd seen. Asked why they said "almost", they said, well, the record is 0 but you're second best!

Funny thing is I'm NOT slow. Have a TON of energy and I'm not known as The Intensity for no reason. Just in really good shape, I guess. I wish this 100 degree heat wave would end though - killing me!
