I went from 231 lbs to 121 lbs when I was 19. It took me an year, and since I had a history of Eating Disorders, Depression and had just lost my mother- it took blood, sweat and tears to get there.
I just adhered to the basics for that weight loss- caloric restriction, staying active and working out 5X a week.

I'm starting over again at 30- and it's more difficult on a motivational front. Even though I'm Obese Class II- my health is pristine (I get a full body check up done once in 6 months, and check my blood sugar and Blood Pressure fortnightly. Call me paranoid :)), and my partner/soon-to-be-husband is happily oblivious to my weight gain/loss.
So I have to extract inner motivation every single day to keep at it.

What I wouldn't do to be 18 again, trudging through a workout because I wanted to be ripped for my newest crush :P

131 lbs. I was 38, wrapping up graduate school/student-teaching, and working as a seasonal naturalist at a state park. I didn't have a car, walked everywhere, and was outdoors a lot. I was also penniless so it was pretty hard to overeat, lol! I didn't start to get fat until my early 40s, when I married a man who loved to cook, was teaching full-time rather than conducting outdoor environmental programs, and moved to an area where I had to drive everywhere.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

I got down to about 165 when I was in my 20s. Mostly I did it by working out a LOT, like 2-3 hours a day, and somewhat eating healthy.

6 years ago, when I first transitioned into maintenance I got down to 122lbs. It was not a good look on me so I intentionally re-gained a few pounds and my maintenance range is 130lbs-135lbs. My weigh-in this morning put me at 127.2lbs.

How I did it/doing it: various IF protocols, calorie tracking and then I'm currently experimenting with a HFLC way of eating, which is going very well and I'm seeing a downward trend on the scale again. That's a nice side-effect but not why I'm eating lower carb.

For me it was 183 lbs - 15 years ago!! And at the time, I wanted to lose 20 pounds. I ran, rock climbed, swam, felt strong, led a running clinic at work, had an active job. But I got hit by a car, and put on weight over the years of healing when I wasn't able to be active. I'm more active these days - have learned to adapt - and lost 30 pounds last year. Intend to lose another 30 this year. Look forward to running across you folks on the journey.

119 pounds, at age 33, about a year after I had my second child. I was very committed, ran 3 days a week, strength trained and walked 2 days a week, no alcohol and ate sensibly. Size 2 pants were starting to be loose.

Health issues and then another pregnancy and now 10 years later, it is much much harder to maintain the schedule, eating habits, and I really like wine these days lol.

~fit in my forties~

138, how I'd love to see that again. I worked in a field that we were weighed and measured every six months. I thought then that I could stand to lose a few pounds. There was another female with my same height and weight and it looked a lot better on her!

I worked out and ran and didn't give a thought about food. Now I'm obsessed with food and struggle to find my rhythm to keep working out. I'm determined to stay with it this time.

I had maintained the low 120's for most of my middle school and high school days. In college, during the summer I would work a LOT, like often times 7 days per week and most of those days being 7:30a-midnight or later. It was crazy. Active job, lots of walking, lifting, etc and little time to eat (even though I worked at a sweet shoppe). I got down to 117lbs and felt amazing. I really think that 115-120 lbs is my "ideal" weight where I FEEL the best, but now a sedentary career, a husband and 3 babies later....the 1-teens would be HARD to get to, let alone maintain. I'm currently 139ish and am having a HARD time losing anything at all. I'd love to see the 120's!

When I was in my 20's/30's I weighed 135 at 5'9" tall and looked good. My husband thought I was too skinny and preferred me at between 145 and 150. I would be happy to get back down to 150 again as I felt healthy there.

When I was 19, I was 140 pounds and size 10, after high school went to size 12 & 150 pounds for 30 years. After that I gained weight regarding blood clots in my lungs where I had extreme pain to walk to the kitchen to eat or cook anything & lack of exercise at that time. I went to 192 pounds because of it & size 18. It was 2 years ago I started gaining the weight for a few months & now I am back to size 10, 10 inches off my waist, even though my weight is slightly more. In 2 years I gained & lost over 40 pounds. I think because I never had a weight problem & it was health related I was more motivated then some other people. I am 55 years old. So, I did not do anything special.

I have pleurisy, 2 types of anemia, macrocytic anemia, Iron deficiency anemia, from blood transfusions with wrong antibodies, causes blood to replace daily instead of 100 days, chronic pneumonia, pleurisy, chronic kidney disease, a partially collapsed lung, low blood pressure & blood clots in both lungs for 3 years. Now formed scar tissue.I am 56 years old. I had cervical cancer 6 years ago, no signs last 4 years as well. I have new blood clots now,2019.I am on P.S.T. time zone.

145 pounds, I was working out at Curves for Women. I liked it there. I met people who encouraged me and we became a community. We would share our problems with eating well and laugh about our mistakes. It was just another day at Curves. The place shut down and boy do I miss it!

My best lifetime weight was in my 20's...so long ago. I got down to 125 by subsisting on some early version of slimfast...very unhealthy and it didn't last long, but the best thing I ever did was lose 20 pounds just by riding a stationary bicycle for 45 minutes a day. Pounds just melted off. I had read an article that said that 45 minutes was some kind of magic number. It worked for me. I think my diet was pretty moderate at that point, but I didn't try to eat less or differently. Just the riding did it!

161lbs for about 2 whole weeks when I was 31.... That's 9 years ago. I had a lot of muscle tone and fit into a size 10 (South African sizing) and I felt great about myself, even when my weight stabilised at 165lbs. I was in a very emotionally abusive relationship that made me want to spend way more time in the gym than at home, or meal prepping in the kitchen by myself. Now I have a loving husband and a 4 year-old boy, so my current weight is 175lbs but I'm happier now than I was then, even though my weight is still a challenge.
