Default Lets get to Onederland!

Lets get to Onederland!

I am 8lbs away from Onederland and it just seems so far. Even though its a far cry from my original weight at 255. For some reason I just feel like the elusive 199 will never be mine. So im gonna start this thread and hope it helps me and others to get to 199.

Ill update each day and keep track of food and calories. I will also have to be honest and confess if I cheat.

feel free to do the same.

thank you!

Highest wt:255 Restart 8/01/2013 IT WORKS. IF YOU WORK IT.

I feel the same way. It has been about 10 years since I was in the 190's. Monday I was 207.2. For the last 2 days I have been 208. I really just wish I could have 2 weeks where I could magically drop 10 pounds and finally be in wonderland. I'll check back daily and see how it's going and try to post as well! We can do this!

I made it down to 180 a year ago and it was the best feeling in the world. Then life got in the way and I stopped trying and now i'm higher then I ever was before. I have a lot longer to go then the rest of you (i was 254.2 this morning) but I cannot wait to see onederland again. I was actually comfortable with how my clothes were fitting in onederland, and that's when I really started to feel healthier. I want that back.

I know exactly how you feel! last year I got to 190 and couldn't seem to break it, now i"m 225 and miserable for letting myself gain so much weight back. I didn't even realize that I gained 35 lbs since last November. That's a LOT and way too much! Now I'm an extra 35 lbs away from my initial goal of 160, instead of being just 30 away, now I'm 65. Ugh.

one for every 5 lbs lost!

Ugh, I also know exactly how you feel. You're closer than I am, but the 220s were horrible for me. I just really wanted the 220s to physically manifest themselves so I could take them out to the tool shed and beat them.

I love this!! I was there for about a year bouncing around in the 190s but recently lost control and am now back over 200. Here's to making this the time I never have to see the dreaded 200s again!

Oh my goodness... I am most definitely in the same boat with a lot of you ladies. Between July to Sept 2010 I had lost a HUGE amount of weight, like 50 pounds give or take. In April of 2010 I had my 2nd daughter, reaching up to 265lbs. When I went for my 6 week check up (sometime in June) I was in my 230's or 220's. I'm not quite sure. But I was quite fluffy. And I had started a new job after being at home on bed rest for about 4 months. Which probably contributed to my weight loss (receptionist, but wasn't at home stuffing my face).

At the end of June, my husband left me with two young children (newborn and 3 yrs old at the time). And that completely stressed me out. I was depressed. I did the opposite of emotional eating, and stopped eating because I completely lost my appetite.

So by September, I was a single mom working full-time and enrolled in school full-time. And even though I was very busy, I was coping with my ex- husband's absence. Before I knew it, I had dropped the weight, unintentionally. I weighed in probably around 170lbs. Even though it was lost in the wrong way, it somewhat boost my confidence. And I felt as though it was a start to further weight loss.

So in October... I lost my job and was at home most of the time. I was depressed and started the emotional eating.

By December of 2010... I had ballooned up to 215lbs

Then it slowly started to creep up on me even further in May 2011.. I was between 220-225lbs.

Until I reached the highest weight I've ever been in my life (of course not pregnant though) 232lbs!!!

I have always struggled with my weight and have always been heavy. the lowest I have ever been was 150-160lbs in my adulthood (from 2004-2005). But due to emotional eating from a bad situation, I would always gain the weight. Then other times, a bad situation would come and I wouldn't have the appetite to eat, and would lose the weight. So its has always been a up and down cycle.

This year.. I am in a better place. I am more stable emotionally and learning to love myself and not being dependent upon another person to make me happy. Right now, I don't like the way I look because of the weight, but I love the person that I am. AND I know that in 2012, its gonna be different. i will get it off and keep it off.
