30-Somethings - Thread for the 170s

View Full Version : Thread for the 170s

10-30-2009, 11:37 PM
Well, the 20 something forum has a thread for specific goals...and I don't see any here. They skyrocket out of the goal forums--and I think maybe it IS BECAUSE THEY ARE YOUNGER and have more time and energy for exercise.
I am a goal oriented person. so if you are stuck in the 170s like me. come join me and share what you are doing to get out of DODGE!

I think everyone should start a "get out of the range I'm in thread" for motivation.

I am Jennifer. I am in my first year of Nursing School.Being an overachiever stresses me out more than anything. I eat more fatty, sugary things when stressed.

I got down to 170 lbs in September! Then I bounced 3 pounds up and 3 lbs down. I slacked off and gained back to 180 in no time-stress eating! Now I am back at 177. I want to get out of the 170s.

My main focus is my eating, yeah I know the importance of exercise. But my trouble is over eating.

So my goal is 1600 cs a day, and 10,000 steps on my pedometer a day.

Awesome idea, Jen. I'm gonna start my own Journey to Onederland thread - enough of staying in the 200's already!!

Boy, I'm with you on the stress eating - we have a new baby and the lack of sleep is just killing my nutritional goals. Thanks for starting this in the 30 Somethings, and best wishes for your goals!

Hi chicks! Jen, tks for starting the thread! after being at 162 last year, I let stress eating get to me and the pounds crept back on until I hit 178 in summer. That's when I discovered 3FC and so far, it's been a great inspiration. Right now my main goal is trying to find a good time to work out. I am an attorney and spend way too much time at the office. Usually I work from 9am to 9pm or later. By the time I get home and unwind, I'm just way too tired to even think about exercising. It seems like everyday I try to get up early to work out before work, but I just snooze my way through!

This weekend I bought a little black dress on sale and my goal is to wear it out for New Year's Eve. I've put it right next to my bed to see if it motivates me to get up and hit the treadmill!! Let's see how it works!

omg, I kept checkng this thread and saw no response. I am still in the 20 something thread, because it's where I started...

macu--you are so close! I got back to 170 in september, but for some odd reason..slacked off..and gained 10 lbs. What was I thinking??? What a good motivation to have a dress to "get into".

I can post here and in the other forum if someone else wants to "get out of the 170s" with me.

Ohhh I MISS the 170's! Good for you for starting this thread!! I wish I could join in, but by the time I am there you will be waaaaay less!! ;)

Good luck with your goals!

Hi, I’m 179.8 today and I want to be out of 170s. Is there someone still interested in saying goodbye to 170s too?

03-19-2010, 02:13 PM
Hi All:

I'm stuck in and around 175 for the past month and I've had enough. Let's get out of here!

I'm 5'9, newly-diagnosed gluten intolerant (bread! pasta!), and spend most of my day sitting in front of a computer writing or marking students' papers. I weight train 3x per week and supplement with the Intervals-of-Death on my ellip. I have two children 2 and 5 yrs. I have a lovely, lovely summer dress from boden that I want to rock the world in at 169lbs.

Jennifer, I'm also glad you started this thread. Before Christmas I got down to 165 pounds, but ended up gaining over ten pounds due to poor eating and not exercising. I now teeter between 174 & 175 pounds and can't wait to get back into the 160's.

03-20-2010, 12:37 AM
I'm glad to see that I'm not alone :)
BrainB: I also spend a lot of time in front of the computer, that is a no no for weight loss LOL
Jennifer: I just started this journey a month ago.

179 here, have been stuck in the 170's for a few years now, I remember when being stuck in the 150's seemed horrible, I wish I was back there again.. Lol

Got all the way up to 187 now I am back to 179 as of this morning, I hope to get out of the 170's, someday soon would be nice.. :)


03-26-2010, 10:21 AM
177.4 today. I wish to be out of 170's by May.

03-26-2010, 01:13 PM
Im soo with you guys..ive been stuck in the 170's since December. My lowest was 173, now dancing around 175-181...its my fault(lol) ive been kinda yo-yoing with my calorie counting:o (you know,one day im counting, one day im not)
But IM BACK on plan as of tuesday of this week. I try to stay around 1550-1600 a day and workout. Today my weight was 177.2*yawn*

160's...here we come:carrot:

03-26-2010, 03:55 PM
I'm at 183 right now, but hope to be in (then out of) the 170's soon.

03-29-2010, 11:40 AM
Hi, how are you doing?
I'm at 176.8 so 7.8 to say bye bye 170s.

04-05-2010, 11:13 PM
I know most of you are dying to get out of the 170's, but as of today I'm no longer obese and I have worked my way down to 179.0. So at this very moment I'm as happy as a clam to be posting in this thread. But just like the rest of you I hope my stay in this thread is as brief as possible.

Good luck on your way out of the 170's

04-07-2010, 12:31 PM
Hopeful8: :congrat: I want to be out of 170s because at 169 I will become overweight and no longer obese according to the BMI. :goodluck: traveling outside the 170s to you :)
I’m 174.4 today.

04-19-2010, 10:59 PM
God I'm getting so close I can almost taste 169lbs. This morning I weighed in at 172.2 so I'm hoping by the end of next week I'll hit 169.

04-19-2010, 11:38 PM
I'm in.

I'm actually 31 now, but I've been skulking around in the 20-something weight-decade threads because I find them so motivating! I've only got another pound to go in the 170s before it'll be time to go for a 30-something 160s thread...

I got engaged about a week ago and we're planning for a July/August wedding. I'd really like to get out of the plateau I've been on and make some more progress towards goal by then.

04-20-2010, 01:01 PM
Hopeful8: I'm sure you will say bye bye to the 170s before May :goodluck:
Rocketbunny: :welcome: I will search for 160s thread.

Today I'm 169.2 so bye bye 170s!!!

04-20-2010, 03:15 PM
Congrats Aluxa!!!!!!!! I'm right behind you girl.

04-20-2010, 04:17 PM
I could not find a thread for 160s so I will create one. Do you want to join me?

04-20-2010, 11:39 PM
I might join you tomorrow (if the stars align). *crosses fingers*

I'm at 170.4 this morning. That's down 2.2 lbs since Friday, when I started tracking WW points again. Woo!!!!

04-20-2010, 11:50 PM
Aluxa & Rocket- I will be joining you ladies very very shortly. My scale decided to be nasty this morning and get stuck for another day @ 172.2.

04-21-2010, 11:35 AM
Rocket: I see you on the other thread!
Eclipse: this is a very lonely thread and you are so close to the 160s that I think that you may like to join us now and say goodbye to 170s and 160s there.

04-21-2010, 12:36 PM
I keep bouncing from 177 to 180 then back again. I need to get past 175 so I can make my downward spiral into the 160s already!!!!

04-22-2010, 01:51 PM
Lights76: I know that you will do it!!! :goodluck:

04-27-2010, 05:52 AM
I've been bouncing around 175 for the last month. Ugh. I want to be in the 140s, not 170s.

Someone give me a quick hurry up. :coach: :drill:

05-01-2010, 03:44 PM
Ladies I am bidding this thread FAREWELL! Today's weigh-in was 169.8. I'll see you all in the next weight decade:carrot:
