Confession Time...what's your secret?!?!?!?
For me,at first the motivation was to lower my insurance premiums at work. Then I lost my job, and my self esteem went in the toilet - so I spent my free time, aside from job hunting, working out on my treadmill and exercycle. What kept me going, was the idea of smaller clothes - but in the early months, I found I didn't have acid reflux anymore, and I could walk in the grocery store without using a shopping cart as a walker to get from the parking lot, into the store. Overall, it's been the small, fashionable clothing, finding I have a waist, and getting the compliments. Keeps me motivated to keep the weight off for good! Also, don't think I would've gotten the good job I have, finally, without looking a more normal size. My new employer has never seen me fat!

Look at me!
Hey, everybody - thanks for the congratulatory comments. It's great to have accomplished this. As of today, I'm only .8 of a pound away from my goal. Might just set a new goal of 133, just to make it an even 75 lbs lost. Please, any of you who begin to feel discouraged - stay strong and motivated. My weight loss efforts were not without some setbacks when my weight actually went up for no apparent reason. The anniversary of my diet start is this coming weekend, the 14th. To celebrate, I bought myself a spin bike, and I'm loving every rotation of the wheel! The most fun part, and what kept me motivated was the loss of enough pounds to buy smaller sized clothing, especially jeans. It made me feel so great a few weeks ago, when I was in Old Navy, and I had to ask the sales associate to find me a Size 2 jean skirt - this is from a woman who a year ago was busting out of her size 18W jeans!

Look at me!
Don't have before/after photos, but have lost 71 pounds, since January, 14, 2011. I started at 208 lbs in 2011, and now weigh 137. I'm only 2 pounds away from my latest goal (and past my original goal of 65 pounds). I have to thank FS for part of my success because it forced me to log EVERYTHING. It worked for me because I believe in the theory of calories in/calories out. Working out on treadmill, Exercycle, weight bench, elliptical, Pilates bench at least 6 days a week worked for me, plus watching what I ate . I now have a new lifestyle, and wouldn't think of overheating any more. Limiting my intake has become second nature for me now.

Maturing adults, aka, we older folk!
I will be 60 in two weeks and I've lost 61 pounds. It hasn't been easy, but very worthwhile. My husband doubted I could do it at my age - but I've proved him wrong. You just need to decide what exercise you can do, and start. I had the advantage of my own treadmill and stationary bike, and I worked out on them 'till I was one big puddle of sweat - but it worked. I still spend at least 45 minutes to an hour on my equipment, at least 6 days a week. It's a simple formula of calories in-calories out. And I've taken inches off everywhere. My only problem is tightening up the back of my upper arms (my husband calls them my bat wings). Work with 5-10 pound weights, but they are still flabby. Any one have advice for me?

I also agree with gnat. After years of yo-yo diets, and eliminating things I love and failing miserably, I've now learned it's a simple formula of calories in-calories out. I log everything and when there's a deficit of calories, I lose weight. You can't adopt a healthier lifestyle if you are deprived of certain foods that your body needs, like all carbs. I've lost 61 pounds since January (10 to go!), using this simple formula and keeping fat and carbs at a much lower level than proteins, and eating more fiber. Higher fiber helps process carbs more efficiently. Grab a piece of fruit when you are hungry.

Weigh-in yesterday was especially nice - since I haven't been working out much lately. Been watching what I eat, and logging it all in my Fatsecret app ...
