Default Last 25lbs - lets get it off !

I need some help! I started my weightloss journey in April 2010. I have lost 120lbs and still have 25 to go. Everything is slowing down, and what has worked for me seems to have stopped working.
Last night I ate forbidden food. It's the first time in 11 months that I gave in to temptation. I am frustrated and angry with myself, and concerned that I did that.
I wonder if anyone out there can help me with practical, and mental strategies to get the last 25lbs off. I don't want to be the also ran, who never quite made it to the finish line, I've done that twice before.

strategy - keeping to what weve been doing . . . . Im right there with you though for those last 25.

Ill be adding in more cardio by running and more strength with easy things like pushups, squats, lunges that i can do all day pretty much anywhere.

heres to us both! Cheers!!

Ugh, me too. I always thought that people who had "only" 20 or 30 pounds to lose were soo lucky AND silly for not just doing it, since it was SUCH a small amount to get to goal (compared to 100+). Now that I am there I realize it is just as hard, if not harder, to drop 20-30. And the motivation for me is not as high as it was at 278, because, well, it doesn't seem as urgent anymore. The weight doesn't affect me as much.

But yes, we need to get it off. Spring is a good time to do it, I think. More energy, better weather. So I'll join you and let's get this done!

What were you doing before? And when you try to do it now, what happens that messes you up?

I've been low carbing. I never eat processed food, and drink at least 100 ozs water a day. I haven't been conventionlly exercising, so I guess it is what I need at this point. Thing is I have lost the 120 lbs with relative ease without loads of exercise, so not sure at all. I knew things would slow down, and I have been expecting it. My thread was really aimed at advice and moral support re my derailment yesterday !!

Ahh, ok. Well I think you have two options:

A) keep low carbing and add exercise, as you mentioned, or
B) try a different plan, or tweak the plan a bit, maybe low carb AND calorie counting together?

I know you can do it! Hang in there

Yeah, I'm finding these ones hard to shift, too. So close, yet so far!

I can't wait for spring, as I'd like to incorporate some running into my routine. Swimming, too, but I *hate* getting wet in the winter. Truly. I hate going to the pool and then freezing my bollocks off getting from the building to the car.

We just got another 20 cms. of snow, too. *sigh*

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on the amazing weight loss!

Starbrite, not only am I also from Belgium, but I also feel your pain! The last 20 seem impossible to shake. I gain, I lose and over and over again. I've almost ade it to a normal BMI before too, only to quit again. I don't think I'll gain again, I've been yoyo-ing a few lbs for the last year almost and seem stable.

Don't worry about the derailment too much, it was going to happen sometime, and the important thing isn't that it happened, but how you're going to deal with it! Just try to get back on track asap, and definitely don't beat yourself up emotionally (or any other way of course :-))
