I started at 270, and now I'm at 247.8, so finally under 250. You know how a lot of exercise equipment has a maximum weight limit of 250 pounds to use it? Well, my first goal was to get under 250, and I made it. :lol: (And yes, I know you can have a 20 or 25 pound or so cushion to get on the equipment with a 250 pound limit, but my goal was my goal. Weird, I know).

The funny thing is, I don't even need or want any exercise equipment. I'd rather do an exercise video or walk outside any way.

I can SO understand and congratulate you wholeheartedly!!! :)

I am also right around the same weight, and we have a trampoline in our backyard with a max of 250. Our toddler always wants me to come on with him, and I do.. but I just sit there and never jump. (He weighhs 30 pounds himself so we're definitely over together!). I always look around and wonder if the thing is going to cave in. :lol: I will feel so much better when I'm just 10 pounds less! ;)

Congratulations again on your success - keep up the good work!

That's actually not at all weird! That's a very cool accomplishment! I had never known about that weight limit.... it's just kind of cool to think that now you aren't so far beyond the norm. Big high five for you! :woops:

That is awesome!!!! Seeing the weight limits then doing the calculations in your head just to find out it's something you can't do is never fun.
