      At my highest I was 302, Since I started my weight loss journey for the 2nd time my lowest was 292, I am determitted to get into the 280's by the time I go see my doctor next month. Last time I weighed myself I was 293. At my last doctor's appointment my doctor said Im very close to getting diabetes and I dont want to get diabetes so Im trying to do everything I can to keep that from happening. I stayed at 120 although high school cause of physical education class, I wish you could have physical education class all through life. I started gaining weight after high school cause I didnt have physical education class anymore and I didnt grow up doing sports so I couldnt fall back on sports to stay fit after high school so I started gaining weight, I graduated high school in May of 03 and ever since then my weight has gone up but Im determitted to not only get into the 280's but to get my weight under control once and for all. Thanks for taking the time to read about my Weight Loss Journey. By the way by the end of my weight loss journey I want to be at 150 pounds.

      I am also losing weight Terra, been told I have to lose some which I aleady knew however I think being told was the icing on the cake. I have lost over a stone just by cutting out all the junk and only eating when I know I am hungry (like I physically feel hungry) and only eat until full taking my time so that I know when I am comfortably full. I find though that any kind of boredom can lead to wanting to eat food so I always find something to keep me occupied whether it be going for a walk, going to do some shopping, playing on my console (usually only on a night time) or posting on forums and playing some online browser games and drinking plenty of water always helps.

      Good luck with your weight loss Terra :)

      Well I thought I was 288 the last time I posted but Im actually 292, I had my official weigh in on Tuesday and thats what the doctor's scale said but my home scale and the doctor's scale is the same so thats good. Even though Im not 288 like I thought I was, 292 is still good.

      That is great to hear Terra :) I always say that when you start to feel better in yourself you know you are definitely eating better :)

      Has anyone who knows you and does not see you often mentioned anything about your weight loss Terra? I usually find that it's family members and friends who do not see me as often as others who notice my weight loss more. Never seem to notice it myself though I only know by getting on the scales :)

      Looking pretty good. Keep it up.
      I am a zig zag with my weight. My doctor got me in no carbohydrates diet. It seemed to work the few weeks I followed it so I am trying to make a plan to last longer.
      I also try to walk every day. I hope everything goes very nicely for you.

      Good luck Terra, so many of us including myself struggle with weight loss. It is hard but will definitely be worth your while. I will be following your progress and also post mine. I am weighing 211 lbs and I need to lose 50 pounds. Over the past years I've tried but lack commitment. This time I think I will stick to it as I have a little extra motivation.
