Angry Trying to Get away from 200

Ok, there are threads that say getting out of 180s or 240s or whatever..
I was sooo ecstatic to finally meet ONEDERLAND, that I'm hovering way too close to 200, up a couple lbs, down a couple lbs. I just want a good buffer so I never have to see it again ;( I guess it's normal weight loss 1.5 - 2 lbs a week, with flucuations, but I'm dying to be NOWHERE near that dang number again. Anyway, this is really, really messing with my head. I've worked out so hard to speed up seeing this buffer and now I've got an (small) injury. Anyone else have issues with the head games that number is causing? How do I chill or should I chill? Don't know what to do to get my head where it needs to be and let my body do what it needs to do..

Aww, I know exactly how you feel ... I'm also injured and hovering around a weight I don't really like.

I will say ... I'm on WW, and after my second week of struggling, the receptionist told me to make sure I was tracking EVERYTHING. And to get in as good of a workout as I could.

Even after three days, my head is on straighter and I feel like I'm over the hump -- and I'm (grudgingly) working around my injury.

I'm in the same boat, no worries... We just have to keep going and eventually we will be far away. I find that once I was to 199, my jump was to 201. And then I was to 198 and my jump was to 200, and then 197 was to 199... and now that I'm at 196, I jumped water weight today up to 198, so... Its a pattern and I know itll go away soon.

We just gotta keep going!!

I know exactly how that feels. I hovered at 204 for the longest time and it took a while to drop under 200 and then I'd bounce back up then down again. Now I'm doing the exact same thing at 190. I'm below it, I'm over it. Below it, over it. With me, I think I get into some sort of self-destructive comfort zone where I don't stick to my diet well enough. But I really want to see the scale drop under 190 permanently and I need to get my head in the game and stick to healthy foods and my exercise program.

You'll get there. Sometimes it just takes a small tweak. To get under 200, I cut carbs for about 8 weeks. Not completely, but at least by half if not a bit more. That was a trick my doctor suggested, and I went from 204 to 190 in 8 weeks. Take a look at your diet and exercise program and see if there's one thing in there you could try tweaking, would be my suggestion.

I'm at 204 and can not WAIT to see 199. It's funny, because I started at 213, and it's like it's not official weight loss until it's under 200. I'm ALMOST down 10lbs. But I doesn't feel like it counts w/out those last 3lbs gone. I'm just trying to stick to my eating plan, and getting the exercise in. I've been giving myself gold star stickers on the calendar every day I've exercised. And it helps me to see the visual progress. It all leads to bigger and better things if added up over time. I just gotta keep putting one foot in front of the other and I'll get there...

I could have written this myself!! I just want to get away from 200!! It's just a little too close for comfort for me! For some reason I thought once I got into the 190's it would be so much easier - instead I have bounced back and forth over the same 3 lbs and it's driving me crazy!!

Keep you head up. Try uping you water intake and eliminate sugar and caffine for a couple days. It might just give you the jump start you need. I too am hovering around 200 and there are days I want to beat the scale into submission. It will all come in time. Everyday is one day closer and with every step (injured or not) you just lapped the people still on their couches. Good luck!

I have a terrible habit of not liking what I see on the scale then not getting back on the scale. As if I can pretend that number isn't real if I don't have to look at it. I weighed myself for the first time in over 5 years, then again a week later, despite my hard work and dedication I had gained 2 lbs. Ugh! It's been weeks and I can't bring myself to do it again. Mean while, my husband has visible changes, happy for him & disappointed for me. It will come, slow but sure, it will just take time.

Thanks guys for all your support and advice
I'm pretty good about no sugar or caffeine, so what else is there, no carbs?
I can't believe there are carbs in everything, even yogurt. crazy!
Well, I have made it over the hump, it just took some time woohoo!
But I thank you guys so much for guiding me there

I so want to see the 200's in my rearview mirror. I am planning to start calorie counting on Sunday staying between 1200 and 1400. I am going to combine p90x with zumba for exercise. I really hope this does the trick this time. I will admit that I got lazy after Christmas but, I am ready to get back at this weight loss. Good luck all of you struggling with putting 200 in the past.

That's exactly what I'm doing (1200 cals with zumba and various weights and cardio multiple times a week) and I have to say, it has given me a pretty consistent weight loss. I'm 195, but I want to be further away from 200 I think we are never really satisfied, I heard getting out of 190s is going to be another mental block for us.. hopefully another month or so and we'll be talking about getting away from 190!!

I was having a hard time dropping below 222 for some reason. I FINALLY got to 118 this week at my weigh in, I was ecstatic to be below the 220 mark. However I weighed myself this morning and am 221 again. I have to admit my heart sank a bit. I guess I just have to keep on going at it, and stop weighing myself so much. It's just such an addiction!!!

ITA - I'm at 198.6 so I feel like I'm teethering right now, I want to be at least 15lbs under 200 so that I can feel like I'm really floating there
I don't predict it happening until sometime in July, provided I don't backslide, pray for me that I don't lol
