Smile What was your hardest weight to break through?

Which number gave you the hardest time? Did you find that once you reached a certain weight it was harder to get below it?

S/C/G: check the ticker :)

Height: 5'8


I started @ 323, and down to about 220 was pretty steady. 220 to 190 was about a year LOL and then 190 to 160 about 6 months. It wasn't so much that it was any HARDER to do it, as in my body was resisting or something, it's just that i found it harder to be motivated to continue - at 220 I felt GREAT and thought i looked amazing, so why bother continuing??? Sooo i didn't really TRY very hard. I didn't gain, just lived at the lifestyle I'd created and the next 30 came off without me much noticing (again took a year lol). the last 30 was a concerted effort to GET FIT and that's how most of it finally came off!

Started: 323
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now! Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
Goal: 160

I always seem to get stuck mid-way through. For example, 175...165...155. But once I clear that number I am back on track. So every 10 pounds really gets me. The worst was 155 and it was made even more frustrating because my mini-goal was 154. But just this morning I was 153.6. I totally passed the 154's! I must have had a whoosh building up. *big smiles*

1/4/15: Restarting my journey exactly 4 years from when I first started in January 2011. Reached my goal weight in 2012 and regained half of it back.

I never should have left 3FC!

My hardest number since I started calorie counting in January was 187. It stuck with me for a long time.

Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining your weight is hard. Pick your hard.

My body got stuck at 233; it really seemed to like it there! I just stayed the course and knew the weight would eventually have to drop if I stuck to my plan like glue. My body also seemed to like the 154-145 range, but I didn't!

I am stuck at 200. I haven't been even down to 199.9999 but I have seen 200.0 a few times, between bounces. I'm up and down the same six pounds since January. It's probably a mental block more than anything, but still frustrating.
267: Highest known weight
242.5: Weight on dd's 1st birthday
213: Weight on day I delivered dd (Whooshed past on 7/6/10)
200: Weight on day I went home from hospital after delivering dd (MET!! 1/24/11)
180: Lowest weight ever as an adult
170: Initial goal weight (subject to change)

Pft! See all those mini goals in my signature? Yep. I stuck at every single blasted one of them!

Mentally the hardest was 199. I stuck at 203 for what seemed like forever and I couldn't wait to get to 199. 174 was also rough because that was the entrance to "overweight" and 145 was rough because that's "normal".

I think I add stress with my mini goals, even though I don't even know I'm doing it. My body knows. I swear the day after I reach those marks the weight starts falling off again.
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!

I was stuck at 186 for the longest time, and I feel like I've lost the subsequent 5lbs again, and again...

I get stuck in every "decade". The 170s were the easiest. The 160s I can't seem to shake!
My MAIN Goal!

Stop the backsliding NOW!

Losing what I regained...

I was stuck at 242 (within 2 lbs of it) for over 4 months. There's something about a new decade that's always harder for me to break into, but 242 was the worst.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly..."

The 200 barrier. I saw +/- 0.2lb for what felt like weeks.
