Me!! This range has been the hardest for me to move down in so far. I hovered at 260 for what seemed like forever, and am now doing the same thing at 255. I'd be happy to hover at 250 for awhile!!

I am so glad to find some others having the same issues I am having, and I just KNEW there were more of us here!!

I'm hanging around at 253-257 too.

I know I need to move more, but I think my biggest challenge is being a nighttime eater. Anyone else with the same problem....or solution??

I'm at 258, newly graduated to this range just last week. My biggest challenge is also nighttime. I want to snack on everything, and it is all healthy but it's still too much. My solution recently is to make myself go to bed so I don't think about it. But when I have shows I want to watch or finally have some down time from work and the kids, that is my only time, so I struggle.

Im here, been struggling to get op and stay op. Ive been op for the past week and a half i'd like to get out of the 230's and 40's and get back to were I was last year 220 or lower. Then I will feel like im back on plan.

ORSewmama
05-28-2010, 02:55 PM
Evenings are super hard for me too! I know this is really the reason why the scale has slowed down. I do wonderful all day, and I plan out my dinner. Then I eat "just a little more" dinner than I should. And I swear, once I start to get that overfull feeling, I just keep feeding it, leading to snacking in the evenings.

I have been trying really hard to not have food on the table, I have begun plating everyone in my family in the kitchen - if they want more, they can get up and get it, but that way it's not staring me in the face right there on the table. For the evening snacking, I just keep consciously asking myself if I am really hungry, or why do I want to go eat that? It's helped, but it's still hard. Hoping to make a habit of it, and it will become easier along the way. At least that's my theory :P

If you have trouble getting the weight to go try changing your diet up a little bit, and maybe start trying some different exercises. When I started adding push ups, sit ups and a few other stretches to my morning routine my body started losing weight again. ^_^

Don't worry though, I think there are quite a few people who have this problem. You just gotta teach that scale who's boss:carrot::carrot::carrot:

I am hoping for "Onederland by Christmas." That's around a 10 pound per month loss. Sounds do-able, but not too extreme, or is it?? Maybe wonderland by Valentines day??

Right now it's 245 by the fourth of July!

Present!

I recently changed my ticker to my 25% place. Looking at a -100 lb bracket was starting to demoralize me. So I decided to hunk it up into 1/4 bits.

When I get to 239 I'll change the ticker to the 50% marker.

2nd day back on plan. (Journaling each bite, choosing the cleanest foods, WALKING)

The good thing is that I only gained one pound during my lapse......and now back on.......so I was still sort of watching it, even on a cruise. So this means I am loosing my "all or nothing" habit, which is a very good thing, I think.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

05-29-2010, 05:56 PM
Same boat here. I am stuck at 248. I am very dissapointed I am not losing, but happy that I am not gaining. I have house guests in for 2 weeks and a carnival down the street from me for the next few days. I've had a few too many BLTs (bite, licks, tastes) lately. June 2nd I will be free of all of this and recommit to my diet and increase the exercise. I need to be out of the 240s, NOW!

Hey Ladies, I am 245 and I desperately want to hit the 230's. I cheated a lil this past weekend and it set me back and I believe TOM is right around the corner. So now I need to get the ball rolling a lil harder this next week. Who's with me??????

I'm in on the challenge! I'm down a pound and a half this morning! Yay! I can't wait to leave the 250s in my dust!
I am 7 pounds away from not being morbidly obese anymore. I can't believe it's so close!
Also, I am officially wearing a size 20! I was blown away that they fit! I went shopping with my sister over the weekend and thought I'd get a pair of 20s so that I'd have something to strive for...as a kind of next mini-goal. BUT, they already fit! And not just a pair or two, every pair I tried on! Love it!

Bunti
06-05-2010, 11:48 PM
Wahoo!! Good for you!! Congratulations cant wait to get there myself. My old computer died this week, but now I'm back online. I am holding steady, need to move more, and drink my water.

I finally broke into the 230's, though I think I will hang out here a little longer.. I tend to bounce a lot.

and of course mini golf counts, movement is movement!

and I exercised Tuesday, Thursday and today. One more day and I hit all 4!

When weighed myself and saw a significant loss awhile ago, I actually fell of the scale and almost broke it. I think the same thing will happen when I hit 239. I haven't seen that number in ages.

I am almost out of the 240s. I saw 244.4 on the scale today, but I won't count it as my offical low unless I have seen it 3 times (daily weigher).

I have been trying to burn 800-1000 calories at least 5 days a week. So far I have lost close to 5 pounds this week. I had to take 2 days off last week because my legs were sore. But I figured out why and now I can go pretty much every day. My goal was to see 239 by June 30 but I think I can make that goal a little lower.

And I started the C25K. Woo!!

Not sure what is going on with me but ate wheat toast and BOOM. Ankle swelled, got REALLY hungry and ache all over. I have been tested for a wheat allergy and celiac but came out negative... I love baked goods, but it may be that I have a sensitivity that is not easy to identify??? I am 7 pounds up since yesterday.

Anyone else have something like this??? I have been on low carb diet, feeling great, but missing some of my faves..... don't want to feel like this though, phew!

I think I will cut and paste my above post and put on the low carb threads and see if others have similar experiences.

Hi Ya'll...I'm just reached the 250's and I'm hopin' to hit the 240's by the 4th of July. I really want to see 249 by then. I have struggled a lot with getting started and staying motivated. I think that if I can just feel like I'm finally accomplishing something other than the same 10-15 pounds lost and gained back over and over then I'll have my little boost to keep on going.

C'mon 249!! :cheer3: :cheer3: :cheer3:

I can do this!!!

ORSewmama

You can do it Bunti!!

Wednesdays are my official weigh in day, and I was at 246.3 this morning. I really want to be in the 230s by the mid to end of July - smallish goal, but I need to keep them do-able at this point or I get really discouraged :)

I would like to get to 185 by the end of this year.

I've had a mini-crisis this past few weeks and shelved my weight loss plan. I've been on quasi-maintenance and coasting until I get my head straight and back on track.

I've lost 25 lbs and am thrilled with that. I thought I'd be down a lot more by now but am thankful I've figured out how to take these breaks without throwing in the towel completely.

Glad to be amongst friends here.

Bunti
06-24-2010, 01:20 PM
Congrats, Michelle on your 25 pounds, and on learning to "take breaks" without blowing it completely. I am trying to learn that too.

And to HelpIm250, give yourself a pat on the back for losing the 18 pounds, and browse this site. Lots of good info out there, and some of it may give you an idea to restart your weightloss. Also, many wonderful people to give and get support from.

Them's nice words, Athenacapella- welcome, lots of good folks on these boards. Also, hello dcapulet, nice to see you over here.

Third day on plan, even passed up garlic bread and potatoes au-gratin at a dinner I went to. Had big salad, veggies and about 3 ounces of beef. I didn't feel deprived (well, maybe a little with the smell of the garlic bread,) but it feels good to know I made good choices.

Day four, 1670 calories, 60 carbs-- and we had dinner out. I am feeling strong!!!
Unfortunately the scale isn't moving.

Good job on resisting those temptations, Bundi! Don't worry about the scale. Some things take their sweet time :)

I'm heading out of the 260's for the first time in 2 years!

I'm just starting out, but this is where I be.

It was neat reading this whole thread from the beginning. So many of you posted about being stuck, but in just a month, you made some killer progress! You guys rock.

Hey - thank you!! For pointing this out :D I had to go back and look, and I have in fact made progress in the last month, and I didn't even realize how much! :D

I need to get my butt back in gear, I know if i really try I am break the low 250's and 240's but I have been on a lazy kick lately. I need someone to give me a swift kick in the butt and make me realize that the sooner I start becoming serious about this whole weightloss thing, the sooner I can start achieving all the little goals I have for myself...

I am back to 252 as of this morning, I am going to try and start really behaving this week and buckle down on food and working out. I have a trip to the Ozarks coming up late august with a bunch of girls that never had to worry about their weight and will practically live in a bathing suit for the weekend so that is more than enough modivation :o

Bunti
06-29-2010, 12:36 PM
Well, for me today it is 254.4- and that's an improvement. I had bounced back up to 260, so I am headed back down slowly, but surely. Need to move more, I have gotten my eating back on track, now to step up the exercise.

Hi all!

I started out at 250lbs, but I was 240 as of my last weekly weigh-in on 6/25. I believe I'm still in what I've seen called the "honeymoon" phase, because I started this journey on 6/10 and lost 5lbs the first week & 5 more the 2nd. While I'm hoping that will go down even more this Friday, I'm trying to stay upbeat & not freak out if the loss is less than that. Any loss is great and I'm focused on getting into the 230s.

Am hoping to use my day off on Thursday to do some hiking & get the final big exercise push that day to help the scale results on Friday. :carrot:

Cant believe it but I am down today after being almost off plan yesterday. Still within my calorie range, but unfortunately ate some junk. (pumpkin pie-without the crust, still have to skip wheat) So today I am 253

I can't believe it finally happened. When I stepped on the scale this morning I saw 248.8. The entire month of June I bounced around in the 250's and suddenly this week I have seen a whoosh! I had set a goal in mid-June to hit 239 by August 2nd, (the day my kids go back to school). I have a renewed motivation now that I can hit that goal. The thing that is so strange to me, is I am not doing anything differently, I am still eating the same and I am still doing my daily workouts. I drink anywhere from 60-80 ounces of water a day. What I did notice though, is the last 2 weeks of June, even though I was drinking water like normal, I was not visiting the bathroom as much as before. I kept wondering where the water was going. This week has been a different story. I have been back and forth to the bathroom for a potty break almost every half hour. So I think I was retaining water and it is finally being released.

Hope everyone else is doing well and seeing those numbers drop! Keep it up!

I had hoped to break into the 230s by yesterday's weigh-in, but a new scale and my monthly visitor shot that dream into the dust, and I had to reset my weight at 241.5. It's still a 1.5lb loss for last week, even with the TOM, but my new scale is about 3lbs heavier than the old one, so I had to readjust my starting & current weight. I've still lost 11.5 lbs in 3 weeks, which makes me really happy.

I did a lot of intensive exercise in the last 6 days. 2 days of hiking (one 5-mile, the other 2.5-mile) and one day of 2 hr lap swimming. Last night I was late going to bed, plus I had a little more sugar than I should've had before bed, so I was feeling pretty tired & crummy this morning. But I made myself get up & onto the treadmill for 2 & 2.5 intervals at a 5 incline for about 20 mins. Hopefully I can go a little longer tomorrow after I get a decent night's sleep. Hoping to see below 240 on 5/12!

I've been at this for a month on the 10th, and I'm still going strong!

Its so frustrating. Of course I didn't work out yesterday because of the weather but i should have at least tried to do something inside.

I found some recent pics of me my friend posted on facebook and it was a little bit of a wake up call, I need to be consistant and get this extra poundage off my body.

Bunti
07-08-2010, 03:39 AM
Well, had a doctors visit today, down 9 pounds officially for this month. she thinks I have limited myself too severely, and is telling me to eat at the higher end of my range for at least 3 days a week, as I may need to let my body know it isn't starving, as I have dieted so much in the past.
I'm happy with the way I am eating, so far, and will keep on, but follow her advice and see what happens. I can see doing this for life.

I've been up and down 20 pounds over the past year. My exercise has remained consistant and I love to exercise. But my food has been all over the place. No planning, eating out too much and making poor choices doing that... Got real fed up with it and am wholeheartedly back into becoming healthy. I started this round at 265 a little over 2 weeks ago and weighed in today at 259. I know HOW to do this, but now I'm PLANNING it out.

Okay, shooting for 1500 or so calories today...... wish me luck, it kinda makes me feel guilty. :s

How'd it go?

I'm also aiming for 1500/day...but coming at it from the other angle. My low days were more like 2000 and I needed to shake things up.

Bunti
07-09-2010, 03:46 AM
Did 1405 cal. Felt like I did well. Had a diet soda for the first time in months- felt like a total cheat. I am not a big soda drinker. (Maybe 1 or 2 a month, or less unless I am on a cruise.)Anyway, I am so off of sweet stuff, it tasted like pure sugar to me and was ice cold and a real treat, albeit somewhat too sweet. However it did stop me from being tempted by the dessert everyone else was eating at the dinner meeting I was at- which was loaded with sugar, white flour and loads of whipping cream. (Okay, I WAS tempted, but didn't give in!)

Funny thing, I don't remember my exact number and I don't have a scale. I need one! But I'm pretty certain I'm about 267.

You know, that may be my problem; I haven't had a scale in years, so I ignored my weight, for the most part. Finding this site was serendipity, I now believe. Time to get myself back on track and stop expanding. I'm now so big I'm actually in pain a good deal of the time!

Wahoo Athenacapella!! Oneward and downward. (yes, I mean oneward)

Lippy, so you enjoyed the mini-lapse of your plan.... now if you get right back on plan, all will be well. Glad you didn't gain.

duckchick- I know what you mean about the pain. I am much better now that I have changed my diet.....so much better that it can't all be about the weightloss. I believe that certain foods affect my joints and muscles, are triggers for me for mood swings and overeating.

In talking to others on the forums I find I am not alone.
For me it is wheat--which really sucks as I looooooove baked goods. But, since I gave it up, I haven't felt the need to binge, am not needing to take handfulls of ibuprofen, acid reflux is way down, and I am feeling enough better to get my exercise in.

Seems that I am stuck at 240 even. It's a little frustrating because I have been OP all week and I even had a really good workout last night. But from past experience it seems that everytime the scale stalls or slows down like this that I am just melting away inches. So hopefully that is the case. Because clothes that were snug about a week ago are actually loose and comfortable. So keeping fingers crossed that the scale also will drop below 240 soon.

Hi everyone!

I weighed myself like 3 months ago, and I was 270. Now, I live in a place without a scale, but clothes are fitting me better, and i can see changes, so I think i am some where in the 260's. I've decided not to buy a scale, so I won't be weighing in until I go home.

It is SO hard when the scale doesn't move. I keep telling myself the weight crept on slowly, so it is okay when it comes off that way.

But it is much easier when I see progress. It is hard not to say the heck with it, but I can't, my health and future is at stake.

But checking in here for support keeps me going. It can be done, I know it cuz I see success stories all the time, and can talk to folks who understand.

Well, I just posted my weight on the weigh-in thread and realized that although I have been on plan since the first of the month, (Actually have been on plan since May 15 with a total loss of 10 pounds)I have only lost 2 pounds in that time. So. There are several possibilities/probabilities.
1. I am underestimating portions.
2. I am not moving enough
3. I am not drinking enough water
4. I am not getting enough sleep.

So, out come the measuring cups and scale, a 1 gallon container to track water, and earlier to bed, to try to up my sleep time.

Now, to figure out the exercise part. How do the rest of you configure time for exercise??

You wanted me to help." Then I threatened him within an inch of his life that if I didn't have something chocolate before I went to bed... He wasn't getting anything before bed and that he may not LIVE til bedtime (I've been really moody lately, thinking about taking another pregnancy test.) I got my chocolate milk lol... I have been working so hard and I just needed a little bit of chocolate... they were eating smores... so I compromised... Nesquick lol

Darn! Yesterday went off my planned way of eating in a big way in the evening. I am back on today, but looking at what happened. I think I had too many carbs, and it triggered something, I haven't had that awful compulsive "need to eat stuff NOW" feeling in some time.

Having a particularly stressful time right now, need to handle it with something besides food!

07-21-2010, 12:06 PM
Well ladies, Im kinda frustrated... I always hear that the weight will come off the fastest in the first few weeks... well, I've officially been dieting for 2 weeks, and I've lost 5.8 lbs... I've been watching what I eat, and regularly exercising... any thoughts on what I could do differently??

Bunti
07-21-2010, 06:36 PM
Muelle12-- if you were to keep up your present weight loss, in 20 weeks you will have lost 58 pounds from your total. Then, if you lost a 2 pounds a week after that, in 22 weeks you would be at goal. So, I don't think you're doing ANYTHING wrong.

Some folks lose a great deal at first, some by eating very little, some because it is their first attempts to lose weight, some because they switch to more natural foods, which don't have the additives and salt that many packaged foods have. But steady is the way to go.

But, if you really want to troubleshoot.
Are you drinking enough water?
Are you eating hidden calories? (some things have added fats and sugars that we aren't aware of )
Are your portions correct for your goals? (Too much or too little, too big or too small?)

Give yourself some credit-- you're doing a terrific job.

I'm down to 240 now, but I seem to keep tettering back and forth in there soooo frustrating. I know I am only on my second week so I should expect TOO much, but gosh seeing 5 pounds come off and then 2 lbs. back on 1 lbs back off, back and forth is soooo disturbing, and discouraging! Especially when I have at least 100 to lose! But...I'm here struggling with everyone else!

Hi there......I, like most of you, have been struggling with my weight for most of my adult life. My highest weight was 305 lbs. I typically average between 265-270 lbs. at 5'5". YOU ARE DEFINITELY MY KIND OF PEOPLE!! As I read through the forums I feel so hopeful....maybe, just maybe I can keep my weight loss going. I started changing the "who, what, when, where & how" I eat, about a month ago. So far, I've dropped 21 lbs. (I'm now 249 lbs. for the first time in 10 years). I'm finding it really hard to get interested in exercising, however. I HATE sweating...and I HATE people seeing me sweat. How did you get over this hump? I know that at this weight, it really is difficult to get moving. I tried walking....I went once. It was boring and pointless. I'd like to join a women's fitness club, but, I don't have the money....you see....I can come up with a million reasons to stay on the couch. I'm sooo-o-o-o-o frustrated with me!!!

GentleIon - I was like you, too. Hated to sweat, and sure wasn't into letting people see me exercise (and I'm still not, for the record). I guess I don't have a better way to say this, and sorry if it's not totally gentle - you have to make up your mind what to do, and do it. That's the simpliest way I can explain what I did. I decided that a little sweat was worth it if I could shop in a normal clothing store, and be around longer to see my girls grow up.

I don't love exercising still, but I recognize it as a necessary evil. And there are lots of things I do that I don't love doing - I don't love brushing my teeth, but I do it, because it's been drilled in to me for years! I don't love doing laundry, but if I don't - I don't have any clean undies, and I do love clean undies :) I think of things like this when I am battling with myself to exercise - I don't want to exercise, but I am very tired of being fat.

245 this morning and getting frustrated! I'm so tired of seeing that 4! I've started to write down everything I eat and what exercise I do for the day, I'm hoping that keeps me motivated. I just keep reminding myself that this is a marathon not a sprint! just gotta keep chugging along!! 13 days till I'm back to school, and i would love to see the 230s by then!!!

Good Morning Everyone!! We can all do this, I know it. I am back on the logging every bite/sip that passes my lips bandwagon. (that sentence sounded weird, but it's what I mean) Logging it all keeps me mindful. And mindless eating and night eating are what has gotten me 100 pounds over, so being mindful is where its at, I think.

Welcome to our new posters, and Muelle, I am with you on the frustration, but also believe that the marathon vs. sprint analogy is a good one.

OrSewmama,glad you're still dropping by.

Well, I am finally back walking on the treadmill, maybe I will see some movement now. Time to walk and head to work. See y'all later!

I whooshed again down to 247.1 yesterday! Sadly, gave myself a very strenuous workout and did not drink enough water and I'm now back up to 248.8 :(. Chug chug chug today! This means in a month I've lost about 6 pounds. While I guess that's ok, I would prefer a little more. Like 8-10.

Wow, sounds like some real "whooshing" going on. Congrats.
(Unfortunately not here, still stuck.) But, I am going to drink more water, I think I have been in need of more because of the heat, and haven't gone over my 8 glasses. Lets see what happens.

Ooh! Jumping in here! I was stuck in the 260's for a little bit and am nearing the 240's now. Let's hope I don't get to post in this thread for long! Weighing in come morning. *crosses fingers*
