Hey yall. Most know me as I've been on here FOOORREEVEERR. But if you don't HI! I'm Lovergirl. LOL. I am just writing to see if there are any FatSecret people out that there that needs another buddy to do this weight loss thing with that may be obese or morbidly obese (ugh I hate that phrase). I'm currently 365 and plan to be 180 in a year or so....anyone want to come along for the journey with me?

ADD ME. Very Happy

Lovergirl, I can't JOIN you on the journey, as I have already taken it. But I can invite you to add me as a buddy if you like, to have inspiration from someone who did it. I write a journal every - EVERY - day, and it's open for all to read.
I'm pretty responsive to questions and comments, but I might take a little while to reply.
I'm here to tell you that it CAN BE DONE. I used to weigh 360 lbs. TOday, I'm half that size.
Keld.

Visit my website: www.tabdig.info

"Losing weight is never about eating as little as possible"
- Kingkeld.
"You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.
― Eleanor Roosevelt
"Do. Or do not. There is no trying."
- Master Yoda.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Wow. Super congratulations on that! I love seeing people who have done it. It makes me refocus my priorities on days when I may want to give up or quit. It is just not an option. I will surely add you!

Hi, lovegirl654!
I want to be your buddy. I started with 277lb, and my DREAM weight is 155 or so.
I also hate that "morbidly obese" tag. When I started my journey, I checked on a website -which, honestly, I can't remember the name of- and I was on "obesity grade III", then I started losing weight and felt awesome when I checked again, and I was on grade II, which is not great, but it's an improvement.

I've had my ups and downs, but here I am... fighting again. I know someday I won't be obese anymore.

wish you the best.

Conviction, Perseverance and Patience... MUCH Patience.

Ultimate goal: 75 kg

I'll join ya - we're at just about the same starting point / goal. I actually started somewhere over 400lbs, 420ish, I think (it's hard to find scales that go that high, yanno) and have maintained 370ish for a good while now, but it's time to take the plunge and go all the way this time! I need to do this so I can stay alive and healthy for my kids. They'll be really angry at me if I get sick and die on them early!

I've already dropped a few lbs since starting using this site (formerly used myfitnesspal but I like some of the options here more) (370lbs-363lbs) but it doesn't show it since i switched diets, so I'm off and running (metaphorically anyway)! Let's do this.

Great. Just add me as a friend if you haven't already. This is a long journey so I would love to have buddies to help me through and visa versa.

jayeque - I actually started at 412 in April 2013 when I had my baby, so I totally understand. That was the highest weight I have ever been.
