Default In the 170's REVIVAL

Okay I don't know if ANY of my 170's girls are still around the boards, but if you are let's start up the 170's club again. That was REALLY motivating to me.

I'm not really sure WHAT I weigh right now- I haven't weighed in over a month (shock and horror I know!) but I am 99.9% positive I am in the higher 170s at this point (even more shock and horror).

So girls, if you are in the 170's and want your way OUT of the 170's, let's do it together.

What is your plan?
Post your progress, and encourage one another!

I don't have a plan yet- I'm still figuring that out (after several failed plan attempts I'm hesitant to commit to any one thing at this point!) BUT hopefully soon I'll have a better idea of what my "plan" is. In the mean time, my goal for tomorrow (Sunday) is to drink enough water and to do the 30 Day Shred.

I'm stuck in the mid 70s. This is new territory for me, and I think I lost some of my steam in the excited whirlwind of just being in the 170s in the first place. After a terrible eating-out kind of weekend, I suspect I'll be 174 tomorrow when I weigh. I want to recommit and keep going!

hey there! i'm in.

the last time i weighed myself, i was high 170s...and like you, am too scared to step on a scale.

however, i did suck it up and take measurements last sunday to use instead. i'm going to use those as a benchmark. i care way more about the inches anyways!

my plan is to eat healthy (eating has never been a big issue for me. i eat pretty okay - not spectacular, but not bad either) and EXERCISE lots! i am doing the 30 day shred too - on L1 D6 today!

brooksrm yay! welcome to the 170's club- the only club you'll try to leave as soon as humanly possible! haha i think a slip-up weekend is okay now and then, just stay on track! good luck.

avie i took my measurements today, and i agree- those numbers mean way more to me than my weight. anyway i think i'll go ahead and post those measurements since that is a trackable number i have right now and once i DO weigh myself i'll post that as well.


so today my measurements are:

bust (at fullest part): 38"
waist (at narrowest point): 31"
hips (at fullest part): 38"
thighs: 23" each

those are the measurements I'm most concerned with. maybe i'll post my measurements each sunday? what do you girls think? i think keeping track weekly or monthly will help keep me motivated- how about you?!!

welcome to the club ladies, let's do this together!

I'm stuck in the dreadful 170's also... but hey, it's better than 180's right? lol well that's what I try to think just to make myself feel a little better.

I'm 174! hope to get to the 160's soon...and then 150's...and downhill from there!

a club for the 170's?! oh, this is just what i need!

i've never ventured about the dreadful 179, which i'm happy about, but i can't wait to step on the scale & see a 16something, then a 15 something & so on.

i'll do measurements too! & i've got a photographer of a husband helping me out. he's going to take pictures of my progress. which, i admit, isn't fun to look at right now.

Oh cool!

I weighed in at 179.2 on Saturday morning.

I've got a couple of 170s goals coming up:

176 will be 15 lbs lost and my BF has a wrapped Pandora charm (charm bracelet thing - he's giving me one for every 15 lbs lost) waiting for me on the nightstand. I can't open it up and see what it is until I make to 176.

174 (17 lbs lost) is BMI out of "obese" and into "overweight"

My plan is to stay OP (on WW points), continue my C25K (currently finishing up week 3), and drink my water.

I've been in the 170s for YEARS! I think it is all psychological because as soon as I hit below 170 I start becoming "bored" with my weight loss plan and want to take a break. I am on this!

Weight: 173.5
Measurements:
Bust: 39
Waist: 33
Hips: 45

Today I felt so ugly!! I went to Sephora and I say these BEAUTIFUL ultra slim women wearing these pretty trendy summer dresses and here am I wearing my bog black coat trying to cover up. I swear living in NYC can be such a curse -- you have to step up your game.

I hit the 170's yesterday (YAY!) and checked again this morning to make sure it wasn't a fluke. I am so glad to finally be in the 170s, but even more than that I want to see the 160s. We can do it!

Today is my first day home for the summer. I plan to drive to the local gym and get a membership. I am very limited in the exercise I can do, but hopefully they will have a stationary bike that I can use. (I am recovering from a broken leg.) My plan is just healthy eating. I am going to limit carbs and sugar. The reason I am trying this plan is because my dad doc just put him on a very restrictive diet for his cholesterol and blood sugar and the whole familiy is going to start the diet to support him. I am going to try to follow the idea of 'if you can shoot it, or grow it, you can eat it.' Yesterday was my first day of this specific diet and I was easily and happily on plan.

CW: 179.6

I'm at 172 currently. I was at 176 for weeks, and then went away last weekend (didn't eat well but didn't eat horribly) and came back and was all of a sudden at 172, and have stayed there for a week. Bodies are weird.

Hoping to be a 160s girl in the next week or two!
