I started in January 2009 at 160 (I'm 5'1", a 23-year-old grad student, and have unfortunate genetics). By August, I'd gotten down to 135. Over the school year, life got in the way of exercise, and I didn't have an exercise/weight-loss buddy like I'd had previously, so I've gained 7-8 lbs back. My shiny goal weight is 120, but with muscles and a wide pelvis, 125 is more realistic. I'll be working in the field (lots of hiking!) until the end of October, so let's see if I can do it!
