Default Restarting!


I am new here to 3 fat chicks. I am now at 160 pounds after topping out at 234 in June 2009. I have lost using a combo of Weight Watchers online (i did that the first few months), and now calorie counting (i shoot for 1200 calories/day, but range from 1200-1800 calories/day).

For the past few months, i have stayed the same exact weight (which i know is not a bad thing!)- i have really fallen off with my calorie counting and am consuming about 2000-2500 calories/day right now-

but i am now ready to go to the next level and lose those last 30 pounds! i feel so close, but for some reason, these last few pounds are proving to be the hardest! i think it's partially because i am getting comfortable where i am and so the food is luring me more than it did back when i had real motivation!

i found 3fc last night after looking online for support (i haven't had any support up to this time). i hope that i can be a member here and find some support b/c sometimes i feel very alone on this journey.

thanks so much and thanks for being here. looking forward to getting to know you all better!!!

We're in a similar spot! My loss has come to a near stop. So far this month, and it's over in a few days, I have lost a whopping 2/10 of a pound! That's it!

You are lucky to be able to maintain with so many calories! I maintain at about 1200. These last few pounds are proving really tricky for me too and I wasn't expecting 25 pounds to be the last "few". I thought the last "few" would be 10 pounds.
Long term goal: To still be calorie counting 11/9/2010
mini goals: ~211-10% lost;12/24/09 ~203 class I obesity 1/28/10; ~199 Onederland/15% 2/19/10; ~188-20%; ~185 half way 5/14/10; 179-bye 180's 6/12/10; ~174 overweight 7/3/2010;169-bye 170's 8/13/10;~164-30% 10/23/2010159-bye 160's~11/1/10; 153-35%~12/23/10; 149-bye 150's~2/11/11; 145 normal~2/14/2011; ~141-40%; 139-bye 140's ~135 GOAL!

You have made great progress. You can do whatever you put your mind to.

But I have to ask - is 160 what your body wants to settle at? Are you sure you need to lose more? Just asking!

I too was recently stalled and lo and behold...I needed to go back to measuring and logging all the food I ate. I must be honest with myself - I wasn't recording all I was eating and starting keeping track in my head. Ha! Ha! I was just kidding myself. I am back to doing WW online on an hourly basis if that's what I need. The act of recording is enough to delay further indulgences so that I can be mindful of what I am eating.

Best wishes and hope to see more of you 'round these parts. Support is what we need to get stronger.

thank you guys for the kind words of support!!!

dixc chix- i was about 120-125 pounds for many years before my weight shot up to 180 and then eventually to the 230s, and that 120-125 was a good comfortable weight for me. i figure now that 130 would be really good for me, as well- i definitely don't feel i am at my best at my current 160- my frame is very small and i definitely know that i still have a lot to shave off!!

today i am doing okay- i have had 1500 calories today- wish it were 1200 and the end of the day! but it is what it is...

one thing i really struggle with is soda (i drink regular coke)- i can't stand the taste of diet, and i really need that pick me up of coke. but righ tnow i am drinking 3 cokes/day (140 calories EACH)- so i know if i cut that out, that would help tremendously.

thanks for listening!!!
