I'm 35, height 5'5.5", weight 238 lbs in March 2014.
Important milestones that I hope to cross.
To reach 224 lbs - that is 16 stone!
To reach 219 lbs - finally be under 100kg!
To reach 214 lbs - that's 10% lost!
To reach 210 lbs - 15 stone!
To reach 202 lbs - that's 15% lost!
To reach 199 lbs - onederland!
To reach 196 lbs - 14 stone.
To reach 190 lbs - that's 20% lost!
To reach 182 lbs - end of obesity, and 13 stone.
To reach 178 lbs - that's 25% lost!
To reach 168 lbs - 12 stone and close to 30% lost!
To reach 154 lbs - 11 stone.
And then: to reach 152lbs - "normal" BMI for 5'5.5" height.
Eventually reach my lowest weight of 138 lbs again (that was me in late 2007/early 2008 - that is middle of "normal" for my height, and means my clothes fit well).
My weight and health have gotten really out of bounds and life has gotten a little dull because I don't feel well enough to have any fun and I can't get a date. I'd like to turn that around. I've lost 41 lbs here on Peertrainer and I have 91 lbs to go...
32 yr old stay-at-home mother of 3 kids ages 7,4, and 1. I used to hate running, but now I like it. I like to read, sew, and travel. I love being outside in sunny weather.
I am 48 (49 now) year old married, working mother with a teenage son still at home. I have always struggled with my weight and have lost a large amount of lbs. several times but I gain the weight back plus another 15 lbs. I have been making small changes over time and I am feeling much more energetic.
