Default Well, I've been here over a year and didn't think I would be here

Two things. At 255.6, I didn't think it was possible for me to successfully lose 100 pounds -especially since the 255 was already 20 pounds lower than my all time high. I had managed to keep those 20 pounds off in a couple different stints of unintended weight loss efforts (moving), but this time I was purposefully trying to lose weight. And two, being large framed, I didn't know if 155 was realistic.

My first goal was to get from 255.6 to 175 - that would be lower than my high school graduation weight and it would be a lot better than where I was.

When I got close to 175 and I was losing easily and well still (just before the holidays), I realized I needed to lose more and felt I could lose more - so I dropped it to 160.

Now I sit here at 168.8 (up .8 with TTOM weight gain) and I'm 8 pounds from the second goal. I know I can get there - I dropped about 6 pounds this past month and when I get to 160 I will be so close to losing a full 100 pounds this time - like 5 pounds from it. And, by looking in the mirror and seeing the fat percentage thingee on my scale, I can see that at 160 I won't be where I want to be with fat percentage or weight. I can do 5 pounds more.

Those five pounds will put me within a normal BMI and will give me 100 pounds lost for this particular journey. It's just 13 more pounds. Totally doable and with it being spring, it should be easier to do it too.

In the end, I'll probably make 155-160 my buffer zone - unless I see things settling differently as I get there.

Every frame test indicator says I have a large frame - as do my eyes, but it's not so big as to make 155 unrealistic.

Can't quite believe I just lowered my goal AGAIN, but I did and I know I can do it!

Good luck! And don't worry about the number of times you lower your goal. You have to get where you feel happy and I don't think there is anything wrong with shooting for 155lbs. I know we're shaped slightly differently but we're both large framed with pretty much the same height and at 160lbs now I definitely feel like I can go to 155lbs and lower. At that point it's really just about personal preference (something that I haven't decided on what my personal preference is either! ).


Congratulations on your journey so far and good luck with the last little bit before hitting goal.

Congrats on how far you have come!!!
I have read so many stories since joining and a year or so really seems to be a magic timeframe for huge differences. I hope to be saying the same this time next year.
Looking forward to watching you progress and hit that 100!!
