I'm not on weight watchers, but I am trying to lose over 100 lbs. I tried ww, but it just didn't work that well for me. I think I was using too many points on carbs and I needed more structure to force myself to eat right. I can certainly relate to your struggle though!

I am trying to lose 88 pounds on the extreme fat smash diet. I am using this site also as a support and for accountability. It really helps to have other people who are on the journey with you. I understand where you are coming from by wanting to partner with people needing to lose more weight, but don't discount the people with less weight to lose because they offer great tips and encouragement.

I also have about 75 pounds to lose. I have always been healthy, but I'm finding that since I have turned 50 (I'm 52 now), medical issues have begun. I am borderline diabetic, problems with sleep apnea and blood pressure issues are a problem. I know that if I lose this weight that these problems may all but go away. I have support from Weight Watchers and my family, but no one I know needs to lose as much weight as I have to lose. So, it would be great to link up with you and support each other. Let me know what this diet is that you are using.... I need all the help I can get. I am currently using the weight watcher plan and trying very hard to stick with it.

Let me know how things are going with you!

I started with 95 lbs to lose, but I've lost 41 so I have about 54 left to wiggle off these hips (woo hoo!) I was 250 when I started 12 weeks ago and now I'm a "dainty" 208. My goal is 155 so I'll be around for a while. I understand wanting to have a few buddies with more significant weight to lose because it is more of a long-term-relationship. On my side I prefer the buddies who try to log in somewhat regularly and read posts and try and keep up with one another, and I try to do the same. Anywone interested feel free to add old CalorieKiller and we'll get there a deux!

I've been doing ww for 2 weeks now, and I've lost 7 lbs...I still have 65 to go! Seems overwhelming at times...but I am just trying to take it one week at a time...One 10% goal at a time...So instead of thinking "I need to lose 65 lbs." I will think "Only 15 lbs to go until my 10% goal!" Cool

Hi there!
I have lost so far 75 pounds in approximately 1 year! i lost 40 /45 pounds here on fat secrets since jan-07. I have always followed Weight Watchers,and i'm sure there other great diets out there! My tip that worked for me is don't look at the total weight like 100 or 55 or 150 pounds! take baby steps because its seems so over whelming start with t he first 20!
be patient trust me i know its possible i did it! i remember clearly my days at 240 pounds wearing a size 18 and being 23 years old! not a good feeling, and today i look back at 162 pounds wearing a size 10 and feeling great! i still have more to loose and the last 15-20 pounds are the worst and hardest ones to take off

need some help let me know, i'm here

bye for now and good luckCool Wink Cool Wink Razz Cool Wink

I have that much to lose and hopefully more. I follow weight watcher's and find it the best for me,however after 3mos i find myself struggling to hold control,i talk to myself and go to bed feeling tomorrow will be the day--hasn't happened and it's been a week. i have big loser's all around me and feel i am not trying hard enough--i know i can do better and so on,instead of being happy for the sucess i've had to date. i will continue,thankful for people like you out there--with the same problem trying to shed unwanted lbs. perhap's we can encourage each other on our road to a healthier lifestyle-- y-weight--do it now shirley

I have an entire person to lose! It seems overwhelming but (as another person posted as well) I am just breaking it into smaller milestone chunks. It's much more managable to think that I have to tackle 10 pounds ten different times than think of losing 100 pounds. The mind games we play!!! Very Happy

Yep! I've got lots to go! I agree with smaller milestone chunks. First the 10%, then another few of goals. Let's face it, ANY loss is happy for me!

I lost 5 pounds this week and still have another 74 to go. I have to lose the equivalent of my 9 year old son! I am breaking it down into 10 pounds at a time. That way I don't get so overwhelmed and disappointed.

I have a total of 90-95 to lose. I'm about 1/2 way there, now. I am looking at it as 10% goals (2 down, 2 and a smidge to go!) So far I've lost about what my 18 mo old twins weigh, so hauling them is getting easier. down from a 24-26 to an 18 jeans! Just take it in 5 lb increments and 10% goals, it's not easy, but it's worth it.

I've lost nearly 60lbs so far but have been simply maintaining that loss for a few years now. I've got another 68lbs to go before I hit GOAL. I'm not on Weight Watchers but my plan is kind of similar to the Weight Watchers Core Plan.

It is so hard to get out of the plus size stuff because that stuff is so stretchy. I can't wait to get in to size 16's but I'll be stuck in these 18's until lose at least another 15lbs. Mad

My starting weight was 310. It has taken a lot of hard work, but I'm down 140 lbs to 170, and now only have another 15 lbs to go to goal.

Then the hard work starts-maintenance!

Hi everyone. I have lost 53.4 pounds so far on WW. I have been on this bumpy journey since January and plan on riding it out till the end. The end for me is not goal and then go all out and eat like I have for the first 40 years of my life. The end is a happy place where I can maintain the total weight loss I am striving for, which is 150 pounds. I will do it. I have the best support system in the world. My wonderful husband and both my handsome sons, all of my inlaws and my family. That is the small group. I have a million other peeps that I have never even met, cheering me on and giving support and encouragement. I dont know that I could do this without these people. I am here to encorage and offer help in return. That is the least I can do. Yall, lemme know even if ya just wanna rant or rave or praise. I dont care. I listen to anyone, about almost anything. At least once.

You are doing great and i am amazed and proud of your accomplishments and your understanding of the goal being permanent. That is going to be the hardest part but you (and the rest of us) have to figure out what the key to maintenance is...in the meantime keep up the good work!!!

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
