2004 - I graduated high school at about 115 lbs. I could eat whatever I want and didn't gain weight. I was very inactive.
2005 - mid 2008 - I gained about 25 lbs in college and got up to almost 140 lbs. I started to get a little more active and in 2007 I decided to try to lose weight. I continued to eat crappy processed foods and struggled to stay in my calorie range because I was so hungry.
2008 - In the summer of 2008 I finally got serious about changing my lifestyle. I got down to 123 lbs (goal was 125) in December.
2009 - I've been maintaining pretty well and staying within a 5 lb range (123-127). I've gotten serious about my strength training and seen some great improvements from that.
Throughout highschool, I weighed between 140-150 January 2007 - 159 lbs (Heaviest weight) March 2007 - 145 lbs (goal weight at that time) January 2008 - 155 lbs - time to start again! March 2008 - 140 lbs - my goal weight! November 2008 - 135 lbs Spring 2009 - 130 lbs. Now working on maintaining & increasing muscle (and not continuing to lose!)
I have a totally different more steamlined body today and I work hard for my results..

Skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, Crystle Lite in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
I am going to try to recall details because I think this is cool.
October 2004 275 size 22/24 biggest ever! I started watching what I ate and walking
August 2005 Down to 175 size 12/14 Found out I was pregnant with baby 4. I got up to 195 by the end of my pregnancy. 20 pounds was not bad considering how much I gained with the other kids. I set it in my mind to eat right and exercise size this time around. What a difference it makes! I gave birth to a healthy 7.2 pound baby.
Sept 2007 165 size 10 I started running and thought I could still eat whatever I wanted. Needless to say I was able pretty much to maintain that weight, but not lose.
Dec 2007 170ish size 10/12 I decided enough! I started counting calories using the nutrition tracker here on spark. I consumed 1300-1600 calories a day. I was doing turbo Jam and running (very slowly at the time).
March 2008 155ish size 6/8 I started lifting weights a few days a week and continued the running and Turbo Jam.
June 2008 125 met my goal! size 1/2-3/4 depending Still running, Turbo Jamming, and lifting weights. I made my lifting a little more intense.
June 2009 120-125 size 2/4 Started running outside. Love it! I am not looking forward to the cold. Gotta get my run in!
October 2009 125 size 2/4 I am still running, lifting, and doing Turbo Jam. I would like to get back down to the lower end of my range this month. My eating has been crappy the past 2 weeks! I need to get a hold on that because I am not going to be the fat depressed girl again! And did I mention I hate the cold!

August 2008 187lbs. BMI 30.5 Pants: I had some 14's and 16's I could wear but was not consistently able to fit 16's from stores. From one particular store, I had a pair of 14W pants (i.e. from the plus section, I couldn't fit into the 15's) and could squeeze into a pair of stretchy size 15 Capris. (The 14W is bigger than the 15). Shirts: M in standard unisex t-shirt, sometimes Large for women's shirts
I tracked until about Feb, but continued losing for a while after that. Since June I've been holding around 152-156lbs or so - BMI of 24/25. Pants: 11 from that one store. I don't seem to quite be able to consistently fit into 12's in general though. Shirt: S in standard unisex shirts, generally still a medium in women's shirts although I can generally get smalls on, they're just tight.
I didn't really have goals of "I want to lose x lbs by this date", I just wanted to move towards a healthy weight rather than further into obesity.
In terms of fitness - I started C25k in March, and have run 2 5k races since then. I'm not someone who ever viewed running in a positive light - I played soccer recreationally as a kid, but generally tried to minimize how much I ran. I'm now starting to work on One Hour Runner (although only just).
I'm pear shaped, so my pants size seems relatively high given my weight :P I'm about 5' 5 1/2"

I've lost about 35lbs and gone from slightly over "obese" by BMI to just into "healthy"!
And I can now run for over 5k!
#1 rule about losing weight: It's about making progress, not being perfect
These are the goals I have listed on my SparkPage. I began my journey on July 11, 2008. I set one goal at a time. As I met it then I would set the next goal. My goal was to get to 145. I met that on Friday. Now my goal is to maintain between 140-145 pounds.
BMI GOALS: To move from "obese" to "overweight" by the end of February (met 3/1/09)
To move from "overweight" to "healthy" by my next trip to Disney in September (met 9/4/09)
WEIGHT GOALS: To weigh less than: * 210lbs by November 9 (met 10/17/08) * 190lbs before WDW trip on January 25 (met 12/19/08) * 180lbs before WDW trip (so close ~ 180.5 on 1/25/09) * 170lbs by St. Patrick's Day (met 3/19/09) * 160lbs by Mother's Day (met 5/25/09 -- my birthday!) * 150lbs by my 1 year SparkVersary (met 8/7/09) * 145lbs by 9/9 (met 9/25/09)
SIZE GOALS: Lose a jean size: * by Columbus Day. (size 16 - met 9/9/08) * by Christmas (size 14 - met 10/27/08) * by WDW trip in January (size 12 - met 12/18/08) * by St. Patrick's Day (size 10 - met 3/12/09) * by Father's Day (size 8 - met 6/4/09) * size 6 - met 7/7/09 -- I did not set this as a goal...I never thought I'd get here!
