Hi everyone! Hope all is well with you. Have you ever joined a fitness class live on Skype?

My name is Malena Smush and I have been working in the health and fitness industry for over a past decade helping women to meet their weight loss goals and overcome the war in their heads against their bodies, food and life itself.

I struggled with my weight as a teenager after my parents separated. We had moved house so many times, I never developed any lasting friendships and food became my only comfort while escaping the tormented feelings of ‘never fitting in’ or ‘never being good enough’.

I forced myself to lose weight countless times with dieting and exercising only to ‘lose it’ and end up overeating again and again. I hated myself, my life and the way I looked. I felt like a failure.

I’ve been always fascinated with the power of our subconscious minds and unexplained spontaneous healing and I came across an amazing breakthrough- the Slim Body Fastrack method that put a stop to all my weight related problems. The negative thoughts about my body suddenly vanished. I no longer experienced any food cravings and the weight loss journey became an effortless and quick process. Before I knew I reached my goals and everyone around me started treating me like an expert asking me for an advice, congratulating and complementing on my new shape. I’ve never felt so proud and so wonderful.

I’ve developed a program for women who want to find the way out of the dieting cycle, shed the pounds and enjoy the rest of their life in an attractive, desirable body. My passion is to help others who are stuck in the lose-gain weight loss cycle.

hey guys, I'm looking for a weight loss buddy who I can keep in touch with on a fairly regular basis via email or whatsapp/other phone or texting communication.

age: 21
height: 5'1
cw: 130
gw: 115

hit me up if you're interested, I'm looking to be fairly serious about this because I'm sick of looking at myself and hating my body and limiting myself because of it.

I notice this community is not as active as it once was... I found so many amazing supporters the last time I was here and was on a path to losing weight. I ended up losing 30lbs back then and now, three years, later I find myself a statistic. I gained back all those 30 lbs plus almost 10 more. I am going to try to revamp my life again and get this weight off for good this time.

I had so many amazing supporters last time and people who were active and motivated just like I was and I am hoping to find some more. PLEASE stop by my journal and friend me if you are on a journey of your own or if you just want to support me on mine. I find it is much easier to stay motivated if I'm accountable to others and relating to those who are in the same boat and fighting the same struggles as I am.

Here are my stats- and come to my journal! skinny_nonbitch

  • 30 years old

  • 5'4

  • 208lbs (the last I checked)

  • 140lbs

Thanks for reading :)

Hey everyone. I had written on here not too long ago about nearing my goal weight and how I had lost 68 lbs. I am proud to say that when I weighed myself this morning on a whim I noticed that I am now 144 lbs. My goal was 141 lbs (the weight a gym computer said was optimal for my body type, height, etc). That means I am only 3 lbs over my goal. To me, a 3 lb difference is practically the same as being at your goal. So, in my mind I have done it. I have lost the weight and am where my body should be for health.


I have reached the 140s. I still can't believe it.

I am annoyed that, with how thin I am, my BMI is a 24. At 25 I would be considered overweight. This is why they say don't pay attention to BMI calculators. I am not overweight nor am I close to it. *sigh* It's an outdated tool that is inaccurate as can be. What I need is to find something to tell me body fat %.

OK...so again...

High weight: 220 lbs
Goal weight: 141 lbs
Biggest pants: size 18
Goat pants: size 8-10

Current weight: 144 lbs
Current pants: size 6

How the weight came offCollapse )

It's a really good feeling when one of my friends comes to see me and comments on my weight loss. This is especially so for people who haven't seen me in a few months. I've lost the last of it so quickly compared to the first half, that everyone can't help but notice. One friend who I see every Friday has noticed as well. She told me last week that I seem to be smaller every time she sees me. I don't know if that's true but it did make me feel good!

My body isn't perfect and there are things I don't like...but, at the same time I'm happy with my body just as it is. My weight is no longer an issue which is helping my health and allowing me to be more active. The excess skin is slowly shrinking. As that goes away my pants size will slowly go down too.

I swear, guys, I never thought I would get here. I never thought I would be a size 6 again. I never thought I would be in the low 140s. When I first started losing weight I dreamed of being this size, but didn't think it was possible. I still did what I could. I didn't want to be obese anymore and I tried very hard. There were many setbacks and my weight has done the yo yo thing. I can't tell you how many times I would go on a binge and almost give up.

The thing that allowed me to lose the weight is that I NEVER GAVE UP! Every time I had a setback, be it for a day or a month, I would eventually get back on the wagon. I didn't allow myself to give up completely. Yes, I didn't think I would be in the 140s but damn I wanted to get as close as I could.

And, just so you know, I started being really happy with my body in the 160s. For me that was when I went from overweight to "normal sized". I've been happy since.

Age: 30
Height: 5'2"

Target: 125

I was always skinny in high school and then when I was 24 and had my daughter I gained some weight. I had a problem getting it off and then i had my son at 29 he is 2 and I have yet to lose some of the weight I gained. I was at 190 before delivery I am at 160 now and I still want to lose another 30 or so pounds.

I don't like diets they always leave me still hungry. I have done an HcG injections and 500 calorie diet that was insane. I did it for a month and I was down to 130lbs but as soon as I had to stop because I could no longer afford $200.00 a week for the injections the weight just came right back. I have made every excuse not to get up early and do anything. I can't afford gym and I don't have time on lunch to go work out. I have decided that I will take an extra 30 minutes in the morning to work out. I have started a LJ to track my progress if you guys want to take a look and contribute as well. I am new to this so I am not sure how to share anything so I hope I am doing this right.

I wanted to join because want to meet others who are also on this life changing path to better themselves. I also wanted a place where I could talk about anything and everything I want.

It is nice to meet you all and please feel free to add me as a friend since I am not sure how to do it anyway :)

So after about a year of not dieting or gym-ing due to some depression and physical health issues, I've decided to get back in the game. I'm getting married on June 22, 2014, and I want to get back into much better shape by then. But, here's the thing...

Age: 22
Height: 5'2"
Current Weight: ?
Short Term Goal: ?
Long Term Goal: ?

Why the question marks? Well, here's the thing. I've got a lot of issues with weight loss. I have a serious type A/perfectionist personality, and have struggled with EDNOS in the past. Every time I try to lose weight, I become obsessed with numbers: inches on my waist, pounds on a scale, calories in my food, etc. I go from being totally okay one day to having an anxiety attack over my gym time the next. Overall, not a healthy way to live.

So my plan for this time around is going to be numbers-free weight loss. No scales, no calorie counters, no measuring tapes. I'm going to just try and eat healthy, balanced meals, cut down on sugars (my diet is already soda-free, including diet sodas, with the exception of the occasional ginger ale for my tummy), and either get to the gym or work out on my own at home a few times a week. What I want to avoid at all costs is over-stressing, caving to the wedding pressure of getting a "bridal body" (whatever that means) and moralizing myself based on what I eat or whether I worked out this way.

Would any of you lovely people be willing to be a weight-loss buddy to someone who's not using numbers or calories or pound measurements? I'm really going totally on how my clothes fit and how fit I feel, but it would be nice to have a support system. :)
