    Lost 80 pounds, gained back 17...and still had 10 to go!
    morganpierce posted:
    I have been significantly overweight since I can remember...possibly the third grade or so. In December 2009, I joined a gym and started the south beach diet, and over the course of 2 years, lost about 80 pounds. Then during 2011, I entered a long term relationship, had a medical procedure, and then indulged during the holidays to gain back 20 pounds...and I'm pretty beside myself. It was one of my biggest fears to gain the weight back once I got into a comfortable situation.

    My clothes don't fit, I'm hiding in my boyfriend's sweaters, and I even had to buy bigger jeans!

    So needless to say, it's time to get back on the horse. I'm weighing in abround 167 pounds and it's my goal to get down to 140 pounds by the end of May- really, I'd like to drop the 17 pounds that I gained back within 6 weeks so that I can feel attractive again. Losing weight was the most freeing and confidence boosting experience of my life, and I hope that joining a community like this will help me.

    Best of luck to all...
