I weighed in this last Sunday as 259 for the first time in over a year! Although I am happy to be here, I also can't wait to leave!

Who else out there is in the 250's working to bust out?

I'm not in the 250 (I'm in the 280's) but a huge congratulations to you!!!That must feel so great.

I'm in the 260's so I can relate to your wanting to move on. Congratulations!

09-06-2010, 11:50 PM
Me, Me! I can't wait to leave it behind either.

I was 255 last Friday...this is the first week in a long time that I don't feel myself loosing weight... I am als at that point where I start to bargain with myself because I am "doing so well" at loosing weight that I should give myself a "treat"... it's a BAD combination!

I am not sure that I can really exercise due to my joints but the exercies I got for going to physical Therapy are not enough so I ordered a "Run at Home" DVD last night.

Tomorrow my kids go back to school (yippee!) and I plan to go and try on running shoes until I find a pair that work!

Me! I want out! I have been stuck here and struggling. The longer I stay, the more I am unmotivated to continue. I too suffer with rewarding myself for pounds already lost, and that is part of why I have been stuck here.

Congratulations on your success so far. Hopefully the 240s will not be too far behind.

I am sooooooooo ready to get out of the 250's!! I have my weigh-in tonight and I have a really good feeling that tomorrows ticker is going to show me finally out of the 250's and longing to be out of the 240's. ;)

09-07-2010, 05:50 PM
MEEE! I was thrilled to get here, but I'm ready to say goodbye. I'm at 258.

My September goal is to get out of the two fifties.

09-07-2010, 07:29 PM
teresa - you are sooo close!!!

DOV - Good goal. i hope you make it :)

Me too. I've been bouncing up and down from 251 to 254 for months. I cant seem to make myself stay consistent with my plan.I should keep a journal,but I cant work up the motivation. I think I have to work harder on my motivation muscles.:D

09-08-2010, 01:06 AM
I'm at 263 now but I am hoping by the end of the week to be in the 250's!!!! I really can't wait...Each decade is exciting to finally be in but all the same you want out!

09-08-2010, 08:41 AM
Well as you can see by my ticker I made it!! I weighed 248.8 last night at TOPS and this morning my scale is reading 247.6. I should have been down lower last night but I ate out on Sunday and the food had way to much sodium for what my body likes. I'm very pleased and really want to keep on moving down.

09-08-2010, 10:56 AM
I'm anxious to get IN the 250s LOL Only 20.5 more lbs to go

09-08-2010, 11:46 AM
TERESA I am so jealous! I was hoping to weigh 247 by the end of JULY.

Had a few good days so far, so hoping to continue on with a good week.

I graduated to the 240s a long time ago (seems like) and I WANT OUT! I loved that I got here but I wish it would quit sticking around for so long. I'm stuck between 245 and 247 :(

My mother came into town for a week so after I had finally gotten to 256...
I'm back up to to 259. Yesterday, work didn't help. Giant potluck and for some reason I lost my cool. Too scared to weigh today.

10-30-2010, 02:54 PM
