BTW, since we are all engaged in losing weight, isn't it time people learned to spell the crucial words correctly? i.e. lose and losing NOT loose and loosing.

Loose is what your jeans will be if you LOSE!

How true Gabby! We are ALL amazing because we are on here trying to make ourselves better through our goals and encouragement from others! What a useful tool Fatsecret is!

Oh and BTW 366to266, I not only have that problem of "lose vs loose" as other do but "passed vs past". Just have to stop and think about it sometimes. Really frustrating for me.

All my motivation is about mobility. I don't give a damn for fashion etc. I just want to be able to run, skip, jump, play badminton again.

I live in a tropical climate, you know, swimsuit weather 365 days a year! And I care too much about society to squeeze myself into a bathing suit. So..a two piece, to look and feel sexy for my husband. I want to lose this weight so I can say to myself, "I DID IT!" I climbed the mountain for 40 years and I finally conquered it!

BEST OF LUCK EVERYONE!! Smile Smile

Weighing in on before I left home for my 3rd year at university and seeing 280 lbs.

I've always been big, but this was too big. I didn't want to get to a point that I knew it would be so discouraging to even think about beginning to lose weight.

I can't wait until I can feel comfortable around women thinner than me, to feel sexy for my boyfriend, and to be a positive role model for my little sister when she gets older.

I look forward to the day that my belly is flat enough for well-meaning people to stop assuming that I am pregnant... I constantly have people ask me when I am due assuming that I am preggers not even questioning if my belly fat is the same as the rest of the fat on my body.

Anyone else have this problem? I never know what to say that isn’t embarrassing for all concerned and it I am in a really bad mood my answer will be something like “ Not Pregnant just FAT, thanks for pointing that out”

I guess curvy is a good thing, but I don't like being considered "thick" or "sexy like an Amazon" ... I usually just stay good natured about it, but deep inside I think "what is THAT supposed to mean?"
I can do more than I think I can because I have Christ who strengthens me.

My ah-ha moment came when I tried to wash my feet in the shower and could barely bend down to reach them and I could not pick up my leg to reach my feet without having to strain myself.

One definite ah-ha moment for me was bending down to tie my shoes and having to stop between feet because I was so out of breath because my stomach was so big I couldn't breathe properly when bending down.

Getting to a UK size 20 in my jeans but still being a 16 in my tops. That triggered me a few years ago, then I got a boyfriend and he insisted I was losing weight (while I was putting it on; obviously it was just moving around a bit)

After recently chucking him out, I realised my jeans were splitting at the seams around the legs.

I refuse to have the same dress size as my age again (22) and would rather start going back down.

I wouldn't say I cried but not having jeans that fit you any more is certainly demoralising beyond belief Sad

My moment was when my friend invited me to comic-con... I know, it sounds a little odd. I want to go, but all I could think of was a bad joke about girls in Plus-sized costumes!

So as of 45 days ago, I decided to change my body and my life.

Maby I just needed to finally decide to do this for ME not because my family or doctor told me to.

Well, 18 lbs down so far! I have 80 more days before I get on a plane for San Dieago, and by God I'm going to be sub 185! (A weight I haven't been since I was 18!)

Awesome job, Mikaracat! Keep it up and you will be a hottie at Comic-con! I think it's a great goal and I don't think it's silly to feel self-conscious about how you will look wearing a costume. Many of us that are overweight skip out on things we would LOVE to do because we are self-conscious. I would love to take a tap dancing class but worry about the wiggle and jiggle everywhere as I tap away. As I'm losing weight, I can see results and now I know that I can take that class one day soon. Or take it now and get slim as I tap, wiggle and jiggle.

Just use your Comic-con motivation as a life motivation for feeling good doing whatever you want to do, and don't let your progress stop after that weekend. Good luck and congrats on your success!Smile

I want to be active. I want to be all of those people I see exercising and jogging around the neighborhood. I want to be healthy and be a good example for my kids.

Dare I dream of putting on a bikini? LOL Laughing
