It's a bit late to be celebrating this goal, but I feel like I lost some motivation this week (for some reason) and just want to remind myself: among other victories, about two weeks ago, I was FINALLY under 300lbs. for the first time since high school. Woo! When I saw the scale that morning I left the kitchen a total mess because I was shaking so badly! :dizzy: That was almost 80lbs. in 5 and 1/2 months.

Now to get my butt in gear again!

that's awesome! you are doing great! I hope to reach that milestone this week. I had wanted to see 299 on the scale when I weighed in this morning but I saw 300.1 (it was 299.8 yesterday) but my next weigh-in is thursday and I'm hoping for 298. :crossed:

That is an amazing accomplishment! We all get tired of constantly being aware and controlling cravings etc. but you have come a long way, don't give up now. Look back, dig deep and use your accomplishment as motivation! You've done a great job!

Congratulations, that's wonderful! Not to mention, losing 80 pounds in 5 1/2 months is no small feat. I'm sorry you've lost motivation, but maybe reaching one of your goals will help keep you going. You're definitely an inspiration to others.

It isn't easy, nope. Especially this week, since the A/C broke and working out has been torture. I'm not sure I hit my weekly goal. ^^; But I think we're going to water aerobics tomorrow! Fun!

Woohoooo for you! Just wanted to add (ref your original comment) that it certainly sounds as if you butt is already in gear!!

Way to go!!! You're losing weight at a crazy fast speed. That's pretty darn incredible. It's so easy to lose motivation but reminding yourself of these victories is a great idea to help boost your mood and keep going. 80 lbs for some people is their main goal. You've taken a HUGE step!

A tip: when you're feeling a little stuck, try something new. Introduce a new vegetable or fruit, try a new fitness routine, go walk somewhere you've never walked. I find it usually gives me a kick in the pants that I need! (For instance, I just discovered kale, it's fabulous!)
