I'm a 29 year old girl and desperately want nothing else but to look good and feel better about myself by my 30th birthday in July. My boyfriend just dumped me a few days ago and i think it motivated me even more to do this. I'm 5'9 and weighed 207 today. This time last year i was 230. My goal is to be around 170ish and be able to feel confident on the beach:) If anyone would like to be my weight loss buddy id definitely appreciate it:) I've been both 300 pounds and down to 150 pounds before so i certainly know i can do it, lol

You've found a whole bunch of buddies, and I hope you'll join in. We love adding a new buddy to the bunch. :)

I'm so sorry about your breakup, but I think your attitude is terrific. How do you plan to lose the weight? Do you have some specific plan or calorie counting or something else?

BTW, I'm a tall girl too (Okay, I'm 52 years old, so not-so-much a girl....) I'm 5'10", and I'd love to get down to 170 myself!

I'm so glad you posted. Welcome!
