I just realized I can join this thread now! I recently hit 149lbs and today I saw 148lbs. I am hoping to be at 140-139 by Valentine's Day!

Hi Veela!
You and I have similar stats and goals. Into the 130s by Valentine's Day it is!

Hello, Everyone!

Wildflower- It's great to hear you are feeling better. Have you thought about making your plan to count calories? It helps me keep in check. I, too, feel like I'm maintaining.

Angleluv- It sounds like you are on the right track! I think most of us can relate to waking up one morning and finally realizing it was time for a change!

Well, this morning, I weighed in on my dial scale, and it was right under 140. But, again, it doesn't count unless it is REALLY under 140. I weighed myself again before I got into bed, and it was right at 140. Usually, when I weigh in at the end of the day, the scale is more toward 143/5. So, my fingers are crossed.

I've been working out 5 times a week. Just 30mins on the elliptical, then, depending on how i felt, i would jump on the treadmill, crank the incline as high it could go, and then, jogging/running as best as i could for at least 5 mins. The most, so far, has been 10 mins. Most recently, I added jump roping. I set the goal of doing 100 nonstop, but I've been taking breaks. Also, I added in situps and pushups. I haven't lifted weights since I started the jump rope and SU/PU. I'm hoping this change will help me lose some more weight.

ALSO (sorry to be long winded), I have been using the "Lose It" application religiously! It's helping me to stay honest and at my calorie goal!

AKim, it sounds like you're there! I understand that you want your scale to be definitively in the 130's - it sounds like that is hours away for you.

I am so close to this thread I can taste it. It's making me a little crazy, I feel like I have been in the 150s forever, but that's not reality. Hopefully this week, though, I'll hit 149.

I don't mind the 140s, it's definitely better than the 150s for me but I would absolutely love to see a 13_ number on the scale as well. over the past few months I have bumped up my exercise to running 4 times a week. I just know that my food/calories needs to be controlled a lot better in order to get there. I have my days lke you all when I am awesome and then there are days when I am craving a huge juicy pizza which is ok to have but in moderation. I sometimes do a little too much, boderline binging. This is when I feel deprived in some way and justify eating too much. I have got to stop that some how.

Akim - Congrats on making it out of the 140s! Definitely sounds like you were there!

This morning I weighed at 140.2! I was so surprised to see something other than a x.0 weight for a second I thought i had gained!!! Ha. I know I was somewhat dehydrated though, as I slept for about 12 hours last night, but I can't help but feel happy to at least see the 130's so much closer on the scale!

I even got to the gym to day for a run...It's been awhile and it definitely wore me out quickly. I guess it'll take me awhile to build my strength back up.

Well since posting this Monday, I've been weighing in in the 140.xs the rest of the week and this morning was 139.4!!!!

Oh my goodness, I hope this stays and isn't just dehydration or something. Could I have really made it out of the 140's FINALLY?

Wildflower! that is great! I bet you are out of the 140s for good! You must be so happy since you were sick and unable to work out for so long!

I weighed myself two days ago and I was below 140 and this morning I was below 140... i wish i had a digital scale. So I feel safe to say, i'm officially under 140. The arrow is at 138/139. I increased my elliptical to 60mins. I think it is what helped get me over the 140 hump!

my goal was to be at 135 at NYE, but I'll take what I have without complaints!

Thank you Akim! Congrats to you!!! 130's thread here we come!!

Hoping it will stick as I am a daily weigher and actually don't see much fluctuation in my weight usually.

My NYE goal was also 135, and then even revised to 125 after a good weight loss after my first month on plan. I am a bit disappointed I didn't make either, but on the other hand I have sort of been taking a break and glad I didn't gain. So I have that going for me.

Congrats!!

I finally made it to 139 on Christmas Eve morning and have been at 138 the past two mornings, it's definitely a great feeling to pass that milestone My goal weight was only 140, but I have a feeling I'm at least going to get to 135 with the little bit left I want to tone up.
