I did not want to be the fat one! So I changed my diet, ate healthier, jsut eat more veggies, cut out pop almost completely, this was really hard, cause pepsi was my favorite! Now I drink tons of water. THat was in March and i"m now down 30 pounds. My sister got married and I wasn't to bad next to her! I would still like to go anoutehr 10 or more, but I figure it comes a little at a time! I feel so much better though, lots more energy when you finnally get rid of it!
Congrats! You have such great determination! I wish I had some of that. I used to at one point, but I kinda lost it somewhere....

I was in a wedding in June and I did really really well before that. I was riding my bike and I didn't lose a lot of weight but I lost a lot of fat I think..thennn after things just crashed pretty much haha. I eat terribly and don't exercise much. But starting today..well yesterday now I was trying to do better. I walked a lot more at work and I ate mostly good food. I'm on my way..but yeah..I gained weight since last week. Yuck..at least a couple of pounds..not positive...I'll weigh myself later!

Welcome to FIREMOM, we're happy to have you aboard.

Everyone is doing so well. We're all expected to have set backs, that's just part of dieting, in my opinion. As long as you keep with it, and don't get put off by it, you will over all win!

So I reported on Friday that I gained 2 pounds, well I weighted myself again this morning and apparently I'm down like 3 pounds. So yea.. I dunno. I try to weight myself early in the morning with no clothes on and an empty stomach.

How does everyone else weigh themselves?

I usually weigh myself before my shower right away in the morning with no clothes on.

First thing in the morning is the best, but personally I dont' weigh myself hardly at all. Much easier that way, no oh man I gained, or yeah I lost, cause water weight plays a big part too and some days you just have more. So wait like 2 weeks or more to do something. You will start noticing you need a belt then feel better about yourself. Scales suck!
