I see all these people that only need to lose like 5-40 pounds but I dont see anyone that needs to lose over 100, am I alone here. I feel so out of place and so FAT compaired to everyone else.. If anyone wants to become buddies just let me know. No offense to the skinner people. I wish I only needed to lose 20 pounds but thats not the realization of it. I need to lose alot more...

I need to drop well over 100. I am seeing all the 5 and 10 lbers too. Right now my goal is at 100 lbs, but that only takes me down to 180 which is still obese for my height. So if the two of you and any other 100+ers need a buddy, talk to me. I dont want to be alone on here! lol.

Hi guys! I had over 150+ lbs, nearing 200 lbs to lose. I've been a member here since last year & have lost most of it through this site (& Youtube). I have about another 40 lbs to go till I reach goal & have recently changed my diet from calories counting because of saggy loose skin issues to the hCG Protocol diet (is said to tighten up the skin & reshape the body).

There are some groups on here that you can join for anyone with over 100+ lbs to lose. You all can do it guys! Just take it day by day, or even week by week & 10 bls a time (getting out of the 300's say to 290 feels so good, then 280 & so on). If you fall of course (which most of us do) just get back on track when you're over the hump & pick up where you left off.

My tips are: Drink lots of water, especially in the morning when you wake up, I drink around 1 litre upon awaking. Don't be too strict on yourself, I believe it's ok to keep eating what you love. Just try to portion control your regular foods (especially the starchy things like rice, potatoes, bread etc) & ADD lots of fruit & vegetables with your meals. Aim to get around 30g of fibre each day from fruit & veg/salads. Also walk as much as you can, aim to get in your 10,000 steps aday.

Well done on the 50 weight loss, hopefully one day I will be writing that. I have about 150 pounds to lose, small meals, at 3 hourly intervals is my diet regime at the moment, luckily formulated by a dietician as I am type 2 diabetic (only found that out about a month ago), so all I have to do is follow the rules and I should be on my way.

Yes, I know how you feel! I put on my profile to lose 105 lbs, but in actuality I need to lose more than that (I just want to get to that level first, so I don't get overwhelmed).

And, of course, no offense to the skinnier people on here... but we have more trials ahead of us - if only we had to lose that much - it'd wouldn't be so difficult.

Good luck - I'll be behind you all the way!

The difficulty isn't in losing the weight. Several thousands of people successfully lose weight each year. I'm sure even many of the people posting on this thread (including myself) have lost weight before... and then put it right back on.

The problem comes with keeping it off. Losing weight is temporary. Maintenance is forever.

I'm barely getting started, but I needed to lose about 1/2 my weight (literally cut me in half and I would be two people). I've done good so far, but I've got a long way to go still. Like big loser said, take it a pound at a time. Set mini goals to accomplish and when you reward yourself, make sure to keep it in check so it doesn't sabotage what you've done.

Needing to lose 150+ for sure - just having small goals right now and just getting started here myself. Trying to stay focused and realize this is going to be a very long journey.

This Journey isn't easy, but its worth it in the long run. I am really have trouble gettin this weight off, trying to find out what works and what don't that is the problem. We got a ways to go ladies but we can do this. I am so glad that I am not alone on this journey we all have each other and we "big" girls know what each other is going through...Good Luck to all on this long road to success.
I also do the same thing with the small goals I think its easier that way.. So heres to one step at a time...

I just found this site, and have about 150lbs to lose. 8 years ago I weighed about 450lbs, was tired and sick all the time, and developed diabetes. I am about 300lbs now, and have been "hovering" here about 2 years. It has been a constant struggle, being obese most of my life; this is the lightest I've been my entire adult life, and the only time I've never gained it back. What has worked so far: change one thing at a time (first thing I did--stop drinking soda, and drink lots of water. That alone was very hard!). Once I could manage one thing, I added another: exercise. I have bad knees, so started swimming and walking in water. I cried all week the first week from cramps, and now swim 1 hour every day. Now I can travel because I can fit in an airplane seat (just got back from Spain and Morocco), play with my nieces and nephews, and even go out on dates (believe it or not, there are men who appreciate big girls). I finally feel like I'm living life, not just watching it pass me by. I still have a long way to go, and it seems to come off slower the harder I try, so I really need a pep talk, or a kick in the butt lol. Good luck to everyone! And Pam, you are definitely not alone!

I am in the same boat as all of you!! I am glad to have found a group to do this with!! My friends are all skinny or of the 5-10 lb group! I have yo yo dieted all my life and I am tired of it. I turned 40 this year and it is hard! But I decided that it was time and so now I'm going to lose it. I need to lose a 150-180 lbs. My first goal is 50. I am going to do it 50lbs at a time so it does not seem like such a huge hurdle to overcome! I am also trying to learn to eat smarter so I can finally keep it off forever. Looking forward to learning and listening and talking with all here!
Pam, you are NOT alone!!
