What 5 Women Want You To Know About Losing 50-Plus Pounds

Goal: To lose 50-plus pounds and improve her health

"I'm a mom to a 6-year-old son and, as morbid as it may sound, I realized that if I want to be healthy and alive for him for a long time, then I need to lose weight," says Cyndi Suckow, of Denver, Colorado. Because her primary focus is her health, rather than a certain number or size, she gets frustrated when people don't take her weight-loss goals seriously.

"When one has come to a point where they are trying to lose 50-plus pounds, it no longer becomes a matter of 'Oh, I’m trying to squeeze into this pair of jeans' or 'I want to trim down for a special event'," she explains. "For me, it's a matter of I don't want to get diabetes or heart disease. The stakes are a lot higher for me than for people with less weight to lose."

This is especially difficult, she says, when people push unhealthy foods on her or tease her about being a "stick in the mud" for sticking to her Weight Watchers points plan—especially when junk food is served at almost every gathering, meeting, and public function. "I need people to be supportive, not a saboteurs," she says.
