View Full Version : I think every 10 lbs now are BIG

I think I've reached that sweet spot where every 10 lbs makes a big difference. I'm starting to notice changes daily and definitely weekly. It's a great feeling. Has anyone else experience this yet?

And I remember this face! This face is finally me! It's the face I had before I got all puffy with pregnancy.

Eliana, that sounds so exciting. It inspires me to be where you are. Enjoy!

Hey, can I ask you guys a question? I am a long time member but haven't posted much in a couple years. My question is regarding the weight signature under the avatar. Obviously I figured out how to add them, but I guess I slept this week. Now I can't figure how to get back in and record my loss for the week. I have been trying all weekend and it is eluding me!

Sorry ledom...I haven't mastered that either.

You'd need to go in to the user control panel (User CP on the menu bar) and edit your profile - it's most of the way down the page.

I should add that I look forward to being in that position - I do see changes, but not the kind you're talking about. Soon, I hope. :)

I am starting to see changes but can not wait until they are more dramatic.

I will say there was picture of me on a montior at church this morning. It was from the easter egg hunt last weekend. While I am still obese I could see that changes since December. I can not wait till next year to see what those pictures will be like.

Thanks Calluna - I finally found it!

I think that you are right. Some of our folks that are closer to goal will have a better idea about this but looking at your weight and height, I think every 10 pounds will make a huge difference. I am hoping that I am at that place myself.

Yes. I lost 7 lbs this month and EVERYONE is commenting, and dropped a size. At my higher weights it took 30 lbs for any visible change.

I need around 65 pounds more to go till gole. I started at 100 pounds overweight. People are beginning to notice, but I was not really noticing the loss until a few days ago. I just up-loaded a photo to another message board I belong to and thought "Wow! I got to get someone to take a new picture of me!" I look different! Driver's license time is coming around soon. I'll at least have a reasonable facsimile of myself on the old DL-- not the fat-face I have. Oh-- that picture I am using as my avatar is me at 175. I'm 6-1 so that is skinny-to normal. That's my Gole!-- except not the red hair--what on earth got into me?

My neighbor just bought a new camera, but she's in
California. I'll get her to take some pictures when she comes home.

I'm experience this now too. I couldn't believe how quickly I went from a 16 to a 14 when it took so long to go from 18 to 16. I knew mentally that there is a 20 lb difference in plus sizes and 10 lb difference in smaller sizes, but it just didn't sink in until it happened. I'm at the point where some 16's are big (yes BIG :dizzy:) and some are just right. I fit a few 14's and even wear one pair in public! I think they run a little big though, this pair. ;)

This is so much fun! I feel like I'm really in a sweet spot. I haven't been here in such a long time, and that nasty little negative voice of mine is getting quieter and quieter. It stills tells me every now and then that I'm fat, but I'm getting better at tuning it out and just enjoying this.

This is definitely the case for me, now. The weight has been coming off agonizingly slowly, but I don't have all that much more to lose, and I am currently landscaping my garden, so all that digging, lifting, etc. is most definitely working as strength training, and I'm really not all that surprised that the scale is inching down only in tiny increments at the moment.

However: the last three pounds took a full INCH off my waist. And it's like I blinked and missed the size above the one I'm currently wearing.

It is so funny how differently the pounds look on us depending on how much we have to lose. When I was going between 235 and 225 I hardly saw ANY difference...and I did that for a long time, fit into the same clothes at 225 as at 235, etc. Barely noticeable. But the last ten pounds? Oh wow, the difference is incredible.

04-13-2010, 09:18 PM
yes and im so glad im at this point where every pound count..

04-13-2010, 09:44 PM
It's a cool place to be isn't it!!!!

04-14-2010, 04:07 AM
Yup me too.

Another result is that when I eat too much salt and put on 2kg (4.4lbs) overnight, my jeans don't fit. I know understand that thin people can use their clothes to monitor their weight. I never believed it before, because at 120kg, I didn't notice weight gain or loss.

I think it'll be more like that once I get under 200... but for now, I really don't see the difference on myself from 50 lbs ago... ???

04-14-2010, 10:46 AM
Kae, I bet others see it better than you do. ;) Really, I bet they do.

But yes, under 200 did it for me.
