I weighed 201 pounds at my last doctor's appointment. That's when I knew I had to lose weight. He scolded me for gaining 20 pounds since my well visit a year ago. I don't know how that happened!!! But I have lost six pounds in the last three weeks wih the help of SP and I and determined to lose the other 44 by next August...

157 non-pregnancy. That was when my daughter was a year old. I'm 5'0" and my gyn told me I was borderline obese. It scared me into losing 10 lbs but I slacked off after that. It took me another five years before I finally took charge and lost another 33 lbs with WW online program. That was in 2004 and since then I've gone up and down the scale. Right now I'm 10-12 lbs more than I should be. Losing the weight is the easy part. Keeping it off is a challenge (at least it is for me).

Good health is not determined by the number on the scale.

About 1 1/2 years ago I was 248 with little energy to do anything.I had signed up at work for a weight loss challenge and soon after I found out that my younger sister was diabetic and lost a toe because of it. That was enough to make me get serious about getting healthier. I lost over 30 then my mom died last year and I fell off the wagon for a bit but now I'm on the right path agian.

Another day another step closer to a healthy life.

170 - 175 lbs non-pregnancy weight. Around 200 lbs pregnant, I gained 65 lbs with thee of them and 45 lbs with the other one. Now I stay in 140-145 range, but I'm a little lower than that now.

194 That was about 15 yrs ago, post-pregnancy weight. When I felt like a slug about every day, I started eating smaller meals and going for small walks (with stroller) to feel better.
