100 lb. Club - What was your hardest weight to break through?

03-15-2011, 11:01 AM
Which number gave you the hardest time? Did you find that once you reached a certain weight it was harder to get below it?

03-15-2011, 11:05 AM
I started @ 323, and down to about 220 was pretty steady. 220 to 190 was about a year LOL and then 190 to 160 about 6 months. It wasn't so much that it was any HARDER to do it, as in my body was resisting or something, it's just that i found it harder to be motivated to continue - at 220 I felt GREAT and thought i looked amazing, so why bother continuing??? Sooo i didn't really TRY very hard. I didn't gain, just lived at the lifestyle I'd created and the next 30 came off without me much noticing (again took a year lol). the last 30 was a concerted effort to GET FIT and that's how most of it finally came off!

I always seem to get stuck mid-way through. For example, 175...165...155. But once I clear that number I am back on track. So every 10 pounds really gets me. The worst was 155 and it was made even more frustrating because my mini-goal was 154. But just this morning I was 153.6. I totally passed the 154's! I must have had a whoosh building up. *big smiles*

My hardest number since I started calorie counting in January was 187. It stuck with me for a long time.

03-15-2011, 11:27 AM
My body got stuck at 233; it really seemed to like it there! I just stayed the course and knew the weight would eventually have to drop if I stuck to my plan like glue. My body also seemed to like the 154-145 range, but I didn't!

03-15-2011, 11:31 AM
I am stuck at 239=35ish.

03-15-2011, 01:50 PM
I am stuck at 200. I haven't been even down to 199.9999 but I have seen 200.0 a few times, between bounces. I'm up and down the same six pounds since January. It's probably a mental block more than anything, but still frustrating.

03-15-2011, 01:56 PM
Pft! See all those mini goals in my signature? Yep. I stuck at every single blasted one of them!

Mentally the hardest was 199. I stuck at 203 for what seemed like forever and I couldn't wait to get to 199. 174 was also rough because that was the entrance to "overweight" and 145 was rough because that's "normal".

I think I add stress with my mini goals, even though I don't even know I'm doing it. My body knows. I swear the day after I reach those marks the weight starts falling off again.

03-15-2011, 02:21 PM
160-165 is the hardest place to move from for me.

03-15-2011, 02:57 PM
I'm stuck at 205 right now. I have a mental hangup over this number and I just want it out of my life for good!

03-15-2011, 03:11 PM
260-265 i was stuck in that range for a good three or four months because of some mental block. I just could not get on plan all the way and stuck for months

03-15-2011, 03:24 PM
My hardest number since I started calorie counting in January was 187. It stuck with me for a long time.

I was stuck at 186 for the longest time, and I feel like I've lost the subsequent 5lbs again, and again...

03-15-2011, 06:48 PM
I get stuck in every "decade". The 170s were the easiest. The 160s I can't seem to shake!

03-15-2011, 07:06 PM
I was stuck at 242 (within 2 lbs of it) for over 4 months. There's something about a new decade that's always harder for me to break into, but 242 was the worst. :(

03-15-2011, 07:37 PM
The 200 barrier. I saw +/- 0.2lb for what felt like weeks.

03-15-2011, 08:52 PM
I've been bouncing between 203 and 198 for a good month now...I'm kinda done with seeing any of those numbers on the scale - particularly 203 :(

03-16-2011, 10:17 AM
Where I am right now has been the hardest i.e. The late 190s (197-198). I've been here for weeks and this is the first time I've ever felt out of control regarding weight loss in terms of the impact of my actions on my weight. I've been OP in terms of calorie consumption a d exercise but I can't seem to shake the weight for the first time in my journey no matter how low I reduce my calories or how much I cycle them or anything. I'm kind of over the whole thing except, I would never want to jeopardize all I've accomplished so I stick with it! But yeah it's been 5-6weeks at 197-198 now and this has definitely been the longest stall while I've been on plan ever!

03-16-2011, 10:34 AM
There is a huge thick wall at 200. Just sayin' ... I was stuck there or just above for months and months according to Fitday. Getting below 190 was also slow but the wall sure wasn't as thick or high. I'm sure there's another wall at 180.

03-16-2011, 11:08 AM
200. Although, I wasn't so much stuck as just *really* struggling to stay on plan.

03-16-2011, 11:31 AM
I was also stuck around 200 for what seemed like forever. Finally broke through in November. Took a bit of a "maintenance" break over the holidays so didn't lose much (which I was OK with), but since January it's been S-L-O-W going. I haven't really been stuck at any particular number, but I seem to average a lb/week no matter what I do.

03-16-2011, 12:43 PM
I've been stuck between 260 and 250 for over six months. /sigh

03-16-2011, 01:57 PM
The 220s had me for months!!! but something tells me that wont be the hardest

03-19-2011, 01:08 PM
I have lingered in the 240's the longest I think! Every pound is a struggle!

03-20-2011, 03:02 PM
for sure the low 200's. I think it took me a good 6 months or so to break into onederland from the low 200's. And now, the 180's.

03-20-2011, 03:19 PM
It was hard to break through the 170s for me. But I finally did it. Hopefully I won't see it again.

03-20-2011, 04:03 PM
I've got this huge mental roadblock in my head about dropping below 220. Physically, losing weight at this point still isn't incredibly difficult. Emotionally, I'm a bit of a wreck.

There seems to be a big part of me who is convinced that not only is it impossible for me to drop below 220, but that I really don't deserve to. Every day for the last 11 pounds, I've been taking it one meal at a time and trying hard not to look too far into the future because every time I do, I'll start to freak out.

You guys give me faith that it'll get better. Thanks. :)

03-20-2011, 05:07 PM
The weight I am at now for sure. 285 to 290, I am so sick of seeing these numbers. I'm determined to get below 285 and stay there before April 14th.

This is going to sound a little weird for a maintainer to say, but the weight I am now is the hardest....lol

I have secretly dreamed of getting to 133 so I can claim an even 200 pound loss. I work on it but never get there. The lowest I've seen is 137 for about an hour until I celebrated with a binge. I'll work and work at getting there and then every single time I see a 13something I get all freaked out and blow it with a big pig out session. I should be happy were I am... I feel good, I look fine, but something inside of me won't let this rest, but then something inside me won't let it happen either. I'm weird.

03-20-2011, 08:22 PM
195 for me. I always get stuck there, and have a little bounce up. I am trying to get things back flowing down. I think it is mostly in my head.

03-26-2011, 07:04 PM
I have been up and down a few times, and for me I always seem to get stuck right at 205-206.



03-26-2011, 08:33 PM

Got stuck there so long that I finally bounced back up.

Looking to get back to 188 and then bust right through it!

03-26-2011, 09:22 PM
211-209, after losing 5 lbs. a month for about 10 months I sat at 211-209 from around Thanksgiving until last week. I finally found the culprits, eating out, eating fat free frozen yogurt late at night if I hadn't gotten my calories in, and eating too many carbs. Now that I have taken a more serious approach, it's coming off again. I think once I got to a size 18 I thought I looked good enough and started to slack.

03-26-2011, 09:25 PM
Each and every decade ! Currently been bouncing between 169 and 170- but the 230's were absolutely evil :devil:

03-27-2011, 03:39 AM
I've also been up and down a few times, and 137-142 is the worst 5 lbs everrrrrr for me! In the past, loss would either crawl or HALT, and I would get discouraged at these weights and give up my healthy habits entirely. I have a new perspective now though, so I will not have to deal with all that frustration again, thank jeebus!! lol
