Default Getting out of the 170s

I didn't see a thread in this corner of 3FC dedicated specifically to the 170s, so I thought I should start one. I just made it to 179 today!

Anyone working their way out of the 170s is welcome to join me. Let's do this together!!

I'm joining you! I was really glad not to see the number 8 yesterday or today, but I'm right at 179.4 and 179.8 (yesterday and today), so I'm going to work hard to make sure I don't see the 180s again. TOM is quickly approaching in a few days, so I might see a gain from that, but I might not...it seems like I actually retain the most water two weeks before my TOM.

Is it OK if I join in? I have been bouncing around the 170s for several weeks now and really want to see a number without a 7 in it! As of this morning, I was 173.8.

I'm getting down to the last few pounds to goal and find it harder to lose, from a combination of factors, a big one being that the health/vanity imperative to lose is no longer such a big drive, so I am more lenient with my food choices than I should be. I am not ready for maintenance yet!

Hey, LitChick ~ of course you can jump in! This is for anyone in the 170s...whether it's 179.9 or 170.1!! Good for you for being so close to goal. You have lost so much...congratulations!

My weigh in is this Tuesday I am hoping to be out of the 170s I weighed last week and I was 171.2, I just got my period so hopefully the bloating will go down by my weigh in on Tuesday! I am excited to see a 16 on the scale!

Hi All,

I've been cycling between 177-182 for about 5 months now. I am totally ready to see the 170's ( and the 180's ) in my rear view mirror.


I'm at 179.5 this morning. I'd like to be at the 169 mark by June 4. It would be nice to 1) be at the lightest weight I can safely manage before my first 5k race 2) finally be able to say I am no longer obese.

Hi Streudel! That's a great goal for 169 by June 4th! Totally attainable. You can do it

Happy Easter, everyone!

Hello ladies!

Thanks for joining us, J0lamo01, streudel and litchick! Sorry I wasn't around to welcome you earlier...DH and I were out of town for Easter weekend.

Speaking of which, boy did I fall off the wagon! Friday wasn't too bad, but we both ate WAY too much Saturday and Sunday. Going to be doing damage control the rest of the week. I know I won't see a loss this Friday (my official WI day), but I am really hoping to still be in the 179 range! We did have a LOT of fun though and haven't been off plan like that for a long time...so it will be what it is, I guess! My next mini goal is to make 174 (100 lbs lost) by Memorial Day weekend.

Hope everyone is having a great week!!

Oh, Northern...sigh...I fell off the wagon, too. Even today when I had all positive thoughts about sticking with my calories, I fell. It's a new day tomorrow to start fresh. I am self-sabotaging for some reason and I am trying to work through my feelings (which sucks!!!), but it's what I need to do. Blech. Oh well. Moving onward, right?

I'm with you guys on the falling off the wagon thing.

But like Emme said, tomorrow is a new day to start fresh. We can do this!

Hooray for the new day!

I'm kind of easing back into my plan this week. I had yesterday off (so technically it was part of my long weekend, but my plan was to go fully back OP since it was Monday). I did fine calorie-wise, but no exercise. Today I can't make anymore excuses....need to get back on the horse with both.

Let's do this!
