May I join now - I see this challenge has been on for some time but it fits.

People say Maintenance is hard but I never got to goal to try out Maintenance! I started to "maintain" from a distance of 10 to 15 pounds, which quickly turned into the distance of 25 to 35 pounds. Gah. Feeling very foolish, I decided yesterday, April Fool's, was my appropriate return date.

I am going to jump in here for a bit. In 1997 I went on a weight loss jag. I do not recall my starting weight then, something like 235-240, which then was the heaviest I had ever been at that time. In three months time I got down to 193 or 6, don't remember which one for sure. 19x anyway.

I started this weight loss trip when my doctor told me that if I lost 10% of my weight most of my health problems would be taken care of. That was all the incentive I needed to start on this trip.... July of last year. I was 279 on the doctors scales, - clothing that would be 273.

I did not join in on this one at first because I had already lost most of the weight needed to get me back to that 193-6 point. A few days ago I got out of the 200's (kinda, you know how our weight fluctuates so I am bouncing around between 198.6 and 202 right now.

I got the weight off very fast that last time because I was healthy enough to exercise hard and a lot. I had a two story house then and used the stairs to burn a lot of calores, running down the stairs and back up then doing a set of exercises.... setups, jumping jacks, push ups etc, then back down and up again. Sometimes just up and down 10 times then some calisthenics. That combined with only eating when I was hungry, and only a small amount to end the hunger. And not buying things which I knew were fattening, like milk, cheese, and fatty meats, no snacks, chips etc. My stomach shrank and I could not hold much anyway after a couple months to my surprise when I went out to eat with a friend. Anyway, the weight dropped off fast and rather easy.

This time around I started out 40 lbs heavier and not nearly as healthy, 279 lbs with clothes. I felt awful. Could hardly walk because of bad knees and my feet hurt. So I did the first year just with calorie restriction combined with the same not buying fattening food and trying to eat only when hungry. My resolve/will power is no where like it used to be... I have found it difficult. Anyway I stumbled onto what works for me again because I needed to put in my new garden and have a lot of shoveling to do. Basically standing, filling the shovel, lifting it out, tossing the dirt and repeating, no walking or movement other than upper body to the most part. Over 700 calories per hour being burned in excess of what I burn naturally... My weight has started dropping fast again.

For the past 40 years I don't think I have been under 190 lbs. I was just going to lose down to 200 but I have this crazy idea now of going down to 180. And that is my goal. 18 lbs from that now. And hopefully done in three months or a bit less.

Thanks for letting me in

Welcome BFR!

151.4 this morning. 7 pounds up from low. My goal is to get back to my low of 144 by Feb 1. Only gained 1.6 over the holidays! Have already lost half of that. How did you all do with the season of eating?

Hey FluffyPuffy,

Glad that you are bringing this group back to life. Would love to join!

A quick background on me:
I have been struggling with my weight since ever! But in college I finally figured out that exercise is the way to go and generally changing my eating habits worked wonders. I lost around 50lbs (from 180lbs to 130lbs) and I maintained my weight for years.
I moved to the U.S. 2.5 years ago, because my husband is from New Jersey and the weight started to pile on. I love American food and let me tell you: I finish my plate no matter the size of the dish. So over the past 2 years I gained around 20lbs and I weighed myself this morning to see an alarming 152lbs. I need to put a stop to this.
I know how to eat, how to exercise to reach my goal, but I couldn't get motivated so far.... it is a vicious cycle...

So getting back on the weight loss wagon is key for me, but I am really looking for a great group that motivates each other.

Good Morning!
Past two days have been good. I was able to stay away from all the holiday sweets in the office.

I prepared my lunches and the hubby is cooking healthy dinners. I also went to the gym yesterday and today. I hope I can stick to this.
I am going on the scale on Friday - that is my official weighing day. If I go every day I am going crazy.

But you definitely had a great start into the new week.
What do you do in order to lose weight?

Hi Mops.
My diet is basically low cal but anything goes. I try not to eat much bread and no pasta but occasionally do have carbs. Right now I am eating about 900 cals/day because I am short and don't exercise much

How about you?

Wtg on the planning!

Down 0.4 from yesterday to 149.2. 1035 cals yesterday.

Hey Fluffy,

I am trying to generally eat healthier. If I ban a certain item from my list I guarantee you I will crave it constantly.
So I allow myself a little bit of chocolate here and there and also carbs.

I basically try to stick to this:
Breakfast - Carbs
Lunch - Mix of carbs/protein
Dinner - Protein

And if I need a snack I stick to fruits, veggies and nuts.
The only thing I banned for a month is alcohol. The holidays were excessive so it won't be hard for me to not have any liquor.

And your way definitely works for you. You have lost a lot of weight! When did you start changing your eating habits?
