Weight Loss Support - I don't want to Jinx myself

View Full Version : I don't want to Jinx myself

I don't want to Jinx myself but I THINK I might just see my goal weight next Tuesday :D. I actually saw 145 on the scale once a couple weeks ago but it was kind of a fluke because I had been sick and I tend to weigh less just for a couple days until I feel better. Since that day, I have been averaging about 146-148. I only weigh periodically when I don't feel bloated. After a couple discouraging weigh-ins, I have decided to wait a whole week and really hit the workouts hard. By next Tuesday, I want to see my goal of 145..maybe even a pound less ;) Since I have started doing crunches the past couple weeks, my waist has dropped an inch but the scale hasn't shown it. I want to see some results from that darn scale lol. So Tuesday the 30th is the day! I will be changing my goal to 135 after that, but one step at a time :D

P.S. It just occurred to me that I totally forgot my one year anniversary of my second round of weight loss. I lost some weight before, took a break, then I decided to lose the rest on November 17th 2009. I guess a year and week isn't bad to reach my goal :carrot:

Wow!! What an accomplishment. You must feel elated. You look very happy. I've got my fingers crossed for you that you get to 145 next week. Keep up the great work!!

And remember, its about more than numbers. That inch loss means you are getting toned and in shape. 145 and out of shape, vs a fit and toned 145, with muscles etc. You have lost more than fat, you have built muscle and gotten in good healthy shape, and it shows!

Well, being the impatient person I am LOL, I stepped on the scale this morning and I was 144.5!!! :carrot: I just knew I had met my goal. I feel thinner and a little more wrinkled and deflated :o. I swear I am looking more like a shar pei wrinkle dog with every pound LMAO. Here is my current picture:


:rofl: Its all worth it though. Thanks everyone for the positive comments ;). I will make a thread in the goal section when I get down to my final weight of about 135-140. I am just going to keep my plan exactly the same and when my body stops losing, I will be done. I don't want to drop my calories any lower than I have been eating. 1300-1400 feels comfortable so I'm going to stick with it until my body is done, then I have to start thinking about maintenance :dizzy:
