Finally meet my 140lbs goal took me 3 years. I started fatsecret at 177 after losing 30lbs fairly easily, the other 30lbs was tough and took a long time. Lots of pit falls and lots of losing 5 gaining 4 but I did it. I am motivated to set another goal (smaller goal this time 135)
140.0 lb Lost so far: 37.0 lb.    Still to go: 5.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Thank you! I think the reason it took so long to lose is because I was bitter and angry about the weight in the first place you see I had never been over weight, (short at 5' 1" but my bmi was never above normal ) I had 3 kids and never had a problem dropping pregnancy weight Heck I weight like 155 the day my 3rd child was born. Then one day like out of the blue things changed and withing a year I gained so much weight I was up in the 200s, and there was no rhyme or reason for it, I had just bought a house had 3 kids 4 dogs and was always moving, ate the same way I had always ate. I was gaining so fast I was getting stretch marks in places I didn't even know you could get stretch marks. I was so depressed I was the only obese person in my family, my mother, grandmothers, aunts, my brother (who is rail-thin and often teased about it) none were every over-weight and they had horrible diets. I lived angrily and was very jealous of everyone else that had this great "metabolize" It took me forever to accept that things change and my body doesn't react to food the same way someone else might. I lost a lot of moments being bitter, depressed, and embarrassed, and I blamed so many people for not supporting me. For instants my mom would come visit me or on the phone, and make comments like "Oh my gosh I am like almost 120 lbs urg I got to lose some weight" ( yeah and she is taller than me )one of the last things my grandmother told me before she died is "missy your are so fat" My husband eats more in one meal than I do in a day and he can't gain weigh. It took so long but I finally knew I had to do this on my own with no support from my family and had to change the why me? attitude. I know there is others just like me that can look at a cookie and gain a pound! I just went clothes shopping so no backsliding for me :-)
