    That's not bad at all for 6ft. I'm 6ft1" and I was very happy when I was at 210lb.

    Congrats to those who have lost and to those just starting out on the journey. It takes some dedication to stay on a diet for the long run.

    This thread is so cool! Its nice to see you guys coming together to help in your goals...

    It is always much easier to lose weight with a partner, competition brings out the best in us! My wife had been talking about going on a diet for awhile and just couldnt get motivated, so I told her I would do it too and we would have weigh-ins once a week(we were very competitive!). We started buying better foods to eat and eating better in general. Starting in September of last year, in a few months I had went from 205 to 185lbs, and she went from 140lbs to 120lbs. The nice thing is we have been able to keep it off. The down side was she had to buy new clothes! Just remember you dont have to cut out your favorite food, but use it(in moderation) to reward yourself for eating well. Anyway, we wish everyone well in their efforts to being healthy!

    BTW a VERY interesting and good read is "Eat This, Not That" Its a very handy book to have when eating out and grocery shopping.

    I thought with the New Year quickly approaching I should bump this to the top.

    How many of us have some kind of plan to get back into shape for the New Year?

    I know I would like to get back to running and working out once again.

    I've been really working on getting back in shape. I put on some weight when I got married, but after having my first baby in March, I was determined to get back to my regular weight. I only gained 25 lbs with the pregnancy, but I already weighted more than I wanted to.

    Counting from before I got pregnant (not counting the baby weight), I've lost 32 lbs as of this week and I am so stoked. I've just altered my diet up until a month ago when I joined a gym close to my house and I've started getting up before my husband and son in the morning and going to workout.

    I love listening to audiobooks and hardly ever get to, so I take my ipod with me to the gym and listen. It keeps me going longer and makes me excited about going.

    I've got 10 more pounds to lose, and I know the last ten can be the hardest, so I'm glad to see this post! Let's keep each other motivated!!

    It's so great to see you all working towards your goals!!

    =) Jessica

    I was hoping to be under the 200 lb mark by New Years. Was at 220 earlier this Fall. Got 7 pounds left to go so it's not likely I will make it but I'm still gonna push even harder on this last strectch! It's a tough time to eat lightly though so I'm working out more and have totally laid off the beer (My biggest temptation) as of a week ago, for now at least. No soft drinks at all either, although i never really did drink many of those anyways.
    Hell, the beer alone must amount to at least about a 1000 calorie per day reduction for me! -At least! I like beer....ALOT!


    Well, time for some more situps!

    Good for you, Stacy!
    I am still about the same.
    I weigh 145, but I would like to weigh 125.
    My boobs are no longer "up" but at least I am down two pants sizes since last year at this time.
    Love...Jill

    I'm back on (what my wife and I refer to as): "Fatkins Diet" meaning salads, NO BREAD, NO BEER (ouch) and NO SUGAR!
    Already lost about 5 pounds this week, and was never hungry, although very bored.
    I have to stick with wine and no-beer stuff for fun!
    Atkins diet is the ONLY thing that has consistently worked for wife and me. She's 41 and has the bod of a 27 something. I have a little "catching up" to do. But seriously, keeping off the carbs causes me to lose weight daily, and I'm never hungry. Just make sure you keep a ton of low-carb stuff around the house (bacon, ham, chicken, turkey, salad, cheese, strawberries, etc. You can get a list of low-sugar/carb products at Atkins site.) If you do it "right," it's really a healthy way to successfully lose weight.

    I am on a new diet.
    I will either not gain -or- loose 30 pounds by friday.

    Saturday, I will reward myself and go to outback steakhouse for a blooming onion.

    On a serious note, congrats to all who are hanging in there with their diets.

    Are you saying you are still hungry after having had the lap band installed?
    (installed? I don't know what to call it)
    I have put on 5# since last year, probably due to stress.
    Went back to the hypnotist last month to get rebooted, and it has helped considerably.

    Yep, I still do not feel like I am full even when I eat a large meal. My typical meal is supposed to be about the size of 2 gold balls. I can almost eat as much as I did before (which could be a lot). I've been told that I might have to have saline added 3-4 times before I start to feel the "full" sensation.
