Mini-Goals - Hit my lowest weight as an adult today
12-22-2013, 02:05 PM
I feel like I still have a very long road ahead to my goal, but after being stuck in the 160s for what felt like forever, I've managed to successfully stay in the 150s and plug slowly away at these pounds for about a month and a half now. This morning I stepped on the scale and saw a number I have never seen in my adult life. I still have 14 pounds to go to hit my goal of 140, but I feel really great this morning. The last few pounds have made a HUGE difference in the way my body looks and the size 10 skinny jeans I've been wearing for the past several months are now falling off me. I'm struggling through a really difficult break up right now, and have not been looking forward to facing the holidays alone next week, so this is coming at a time when I really need the extra encouragement and motivation. Go me!
I wish you all continued success in your weight loss efforts. :)
Congratulations! I am close to my lowest weight too (just 0.2lbs off) but I fully appreciate how hard those final pounds are. I have been struggling with them for months after a very rapid period of weightloss.
So keep on going! You're doing great.

Yes, yes, yes - the last pounds are hard.
I've just met goal, though, and the weight is still slowly moving downward. I'll update the ticker at the next 5 lb down milestone.
You don't have to lose weight fast at this point, as long as your exercise plus diet, allows you to drop slowly that's the best you can hope for, because you will likely keep it off, as opposed to taking heroic measures to drop weight faster.

AMAZING milestone, congratulations!!!
The last pounds are really slow, I'm going through the same thing! Just keep at it, but in the mean time celebrate your awesome success!
