    Hi All! I'm new to the site, but am very excited to hear any advice I can get! I am 24 years old. Five foot nine and 160 pounds. Now I realize that I am in the "average" BMI scale, but sometimes I don't feel so "average". I often find that the second I step into a room, I find myself in constant comparison with everyone around me. My main goal is to reach a point where I feel CONFIDENT with...

    Weekly Weigh-In ♦ April 16-22 ♦ Imagine Success!

    This morning, one of our weight loss friends posted the challenge of just doing it.  The goal is to exercise first thing in the morning. As I reflect on this, we've probably all heard the same and that's to set yourself up for success.  Get those exercise clothes ready the night before.  Imagine your success ahead of time.  Allow yourself to dream of exercising first thing, to feel the...

    A second try

    I just joined this site for help with weight loss and other reasons.  I started out at about 300 lbs and last year had lost 60 of it.  I have since gained it back and now wish to give it another go and try to keep it off this time.  All I really do is workout a couple of days a week and limit my calorie intake.  Is there anything else I should do or watch as I plan my diet?  Any advice would...

    New and Excited About Getting in Shape

    Hi All, I'm new and excited about this support group and getting in shape for the summer! It's a lot harder for me to lose weight in my mid-50s than when I was younger. Decided to try some new supplements today and will see what the outcome is. I have an issue with eating at night while watching tv. I just like to have something to snack on! I also like afternoon snacks, especially chocolate....

    Hi All - I just joined this group today and am excited to be a part of the community. Over the last few years, I've lost 60 pounds and am currently at a healthy weight. However, I'm hoping to slim down in preparation for my wedding and, of course, the upcoming summer. I've recently begun kickboxing, but only attend classes 1-2 times a week (membership is pricey!). I'm looking forward to...

    What weight are you aiming for?

    3
    In the short term I am aiming for the top end of my BMI, which is 5lbs off. I was over 19 stone so for a long time just wanted to not be obese. Now I am wondering when to stop dieting. I am thinking maybe 9 and a half stone would be a good weight. I used to be just over 8stone but that was so thin. How do you decide when to stop losing weight?

    Bike riding for weight loss

    I struggled for years to lose weight and keep it off.  Later I learned it was the insulin resistance causing this.  Last year I cut the carbs and pretty much went paleo and lost 30lbs.  But man I was tired ALL the time, so I started having some carbs again and gained 15 lbs back.  Again yo-yo effect.  But I have some energy now and have maintained my weight.  I used to ride about 10-12...
