    Ok girls I have been a member of the club since after HS pretty much. The past couple of years I have lost about 45lbs+ and plan to lose another 50 before my wedding (I hope and pray). I was wearing a size 20 and now am in a 12, almost 10 now. I don't want to be skinny but healty :) WW does work I have been on and off since November, but I can get lazy too often and fall off the wagon. Especially since the treadmill is in the same room as my computer with BDW as my home page, like I think I can hear everyones posts and need to get on! LOL Thanks for the smart meal ideas. I am Italian and come from a HUGE family and food is ALWAYS around. My dad owns an Italian specialty store and since I moved away from home I have been able to give up those fattening but oh so delicious foods. My FI is in school for nursing and has helped me to learn a little more about portions and more healthy alternatives!

        OMG this thread is cracking me up - in a good way!

        MOOOOOOoooove on over ladies, I'm joining the club~!

        Weighing in at 5'5 160 I do have a lot of muscle but I could definitely stand to lose about 15 pounds. When I started dating Martin all we did was go out to eat (Mexican food) and drink margaritas. I gained almost 30 lbs w/in 1.5 years. I've lost about 10 of those so far (cut waaaay back on the margaritas!).

        I really need to get my butt to the gym. It is pathetic - we have a $50/mo. gym membership right around the corner that is literally open ALL hours and I've only been 3 times in the past 2 months!

        Way to go to everyone who's losing weight!!

            Moooooooove over girls....My name is Karen and I feel like a fat cow. I am 5'8" and weigh 169 pounds. I've strugggled with weight for most of my life. All through high school I was a size 16 or 18. In April 2003, I was 218 pounds and a size 18 moving to a size 20. At that time I broke up with my ex, lived on my own for the 1st time, and filled my time going to the gym By the time I met Jay in Oct. 2004, I was down to 167 and had lost 51 pounds. We started dating and ate out a lot!!! By Jan 2006, I was up to 178. I then joined Weight Watchers. On my wedding day, I weighed 158 and was wearing a size 10 to a size 8 and was 3 pounds away from making goal. I weighed in yesterday at 169. My leader had an intervention of sorts with me. Basicaly she was trying to get me to be positive and focus on my strengths.

            With me I think my biggest struggle is my thinking. For some reason, I get afraid of success and give up and lose my motivation. I'm just so tired of fighting and struggling with my weight. But I just have to focus on how I feel when I'm in shape and treat myself the way I deserve to be treated. Thanks for letting me vent girls. It's nice to know I'm not alone. BTW, Weight Watchers is awesome. The meetings really target mental blocks and help you problem solve. Lots of support too. I totally recommend it!

              You are absolutely right! I'm mad so I eat, I'm bored so I eat, I really don't need an excuse to eat it's my crutch and it satisfy the pain by putting me in that food induced coma. I never had a weight problem I was a teenie tiny thing for most of my life until I was about 22, then I gradually put on weight only to ending as the balloon that I am now.

              Changing the habit is sooo hard. I know what to do and what to eat it's just crushing my crutch that's the challenge. I was seeing a eating disorder therapist for a while but it was getting really expensive, and it did help a bit. Like you said you have to focus on how you feel when you're doing good and remember that feeling so it will help discourage the bad habit of emotional eating. Which is a serious problem....and most people just dismiss it as well you just have to diet.......REALLY? Like I didn't know that or haven't tried that one before. I just have to figure out WHY I do and correct that issue and then I'll be set free!

                    all you girls need to stop complaining about your weight... im not sayign that like me bitching about you bitching.. hahah. im saying stop worrying so much about that your weight makes you who you are. (ps LADYP im sure your soon to be husband doesnt complain about you being "top heavy" hah)

                    but i do agree that there is nothing wrong with wanting to be healthy, eating right, and regular excercise. my advice to anyone is to buy the book "the abs diet for women" its 15 bucks. i have the one for men and its changed my life. i eat so much better YET i still eat the same stuff i ate before just a healthier brand of it. and i feel so much better and slimming back down again. it doesnt make you eat a specific thing like grapefruits and nothing else and tell you to do 1000 sit ups a day. the opposite really. it tells you all the wonderful foods you can eat and what to avoid (high fructose corn syrup and trans fats) and little simple excercises anyone can do anywhere and you'll tone up and slim down the healthy way. and you actually want to stick with it. im going on a year of barely a drop of high fructosse corn syrup and ive maybe had 10 grams of trans fats combined and i don't miss it a bit :)

                      No he doesnt but when we both can lay on the our back on the bed and he can get his thrill and watch tv it can do a something to your selfesteem.
