Starting today- I'd love to kiss the 140's goodbye. Not sure it's realistic but I'd like to see them gone by 9/1.

Wish me luck-

8/1- 147

Hey everyone! Sorry I have been MIA lately. I have been working 6-7 days a week and my life has been crazy. But I have dropped a good 5 lbs! I was 140.8 this morning! I hope that I can continue to lose!

aaaaaaaah I remember how ELATED I was to cross back into the 130s. 139 feels completely different than 140. Irrational, I know, but it keeps me motivated.

My baseline goal is to keep it in the 130s again, like I did for years and YEARS.

Getting closer: Today is 141.4. I was sick for a long time and my weight dipped as low as 140.8 and I have bounced around from there. I think if I stick to healthy eating and don't go back to my overeating, binge-y ways I might be able to obtain "below 140" in the month of August. I NEED to start exercising again, ack.

My real goal for maintaining is 135. My IDEAL goal, however, is 129. I haven't been that weight in 7 years or so and I think it might require way too much work, but it's always out there as a goal

JenVitz - you are so close to "saying goodbye to the 140s"!!

Thanks EmmaD - I haven't seen the 130's in almost 4 years! I can't wait to get back to there again.

I'm holding at 141.4 lbs. Which is good news for now, I think... I lost some weight rapidly last month due to illness and I am hoping to use that as a springboard to maintaining at a lower weight. Of course psychologically I would prefer to scootch down below 140 and hang out there. "Just" 1.6 lbs to go!

I revised my weight loss goal on FitDay, giving myself more time since I clearly am not going to be 129 lbs by the end of August If I manage to keep on track as I have since May 1, I will be out of the 140s in less than two weeks... we'll see about that.

I'm switching to lower carb starting next week - that might provide the boost I need. I've been pretty low-cal (1000-1200) recently, not entirely by choice, but it has been decidedly NOT low-carb.

Hope all you other lovely 140s are doing well out there

141.4 pounds yesterday
141.0 today

According to my goal schedule (which yes I know is ridiculous... I don't know why I keep setting these time goals, keeps me engaged I assume), I "should" be 140.0 by Monday. That makes me fully realize how ridiculous my goal schedule is - I can't control if I can lose an entire pound in 3 days. Nothing to do but try though...

I have been eating low cal/med-high carb recently just because of a stomach issue. I know this is not sustainable as I am starting to get my appetite back and 1100-1200 calories on high carb is NOT very filling.

sooo.... making plans for transitioning to lower carb. It is the only thing I have found that budges any pounds at all from my 30-something weight gain. Need more veggies, leafy greens, protein and some exercise.

I am always curious what others trying to lose those last pounds are doing. I am thinking I might need something more structured to finally get off this last 10-15. I am considering Ideal Protein, as I am familiar with that plan through my mother.

For maintenance, I'm not sure. I am a long-time South Beacher but I have had psychological issues (binge-y behaviors) that make me think I need more structure. Well, anyway I am sure I have plenty of time to worry about maintenance!! Gotta get out of the 140s first...

Woohoo! 141 today!!!! So close.....can't wait to see 139 on my scale.

Gonna push myself this weekend. I think the fact that my hubby is following my plan really helps. Even my kids are rooting for me!!!

There are (at least) four of us primed and ready to bail out of the 140s!


I think I would be OK just "staying out of the 140s" as my goal. My goal is a moving target as I see how much work it takes to get my weight down... 139 is a reasonable "red line" goal for me - not a great one, as I carry a lot of fat. 135 is acceptable. Less than that has become almost uncharted territory for the last few years.

All that being said - my weight is up 1 pound to 142.0! boooooo. Not entirely unexpected as it wasn't the greatest eating day yesterday and Friday turned out to be a crazy starving day of grazing too much.

This is interesting to me: the "crazy eating days" I tracked at 1533 calories and 1549 (but that might even be high as I entered 1 cup of a dessert I had around 10 small bites of...). So I'm getting BETTER ... I wasn't tracking much in the last year of semi-bingeing, but it was just sad how many empty worthless calories I know I was consuming. Hence 10 extra pounds last year.
