Default Reached Goal, But Still Hoping to Lose More

I lost 29 pounds on Weight Watchers since May. I was amazed how well the program worked. I have tried so many things from fad diets to exercising twice a day, every day and nothing made the scale budge. I thought I was doomed. I thought my body had settled in at that weight and there was nothing I could do about it. I only joined WW because they offer it at my work and we can get reimbursed through our health insurance. So I figured, ultimately it's free, why not give it a shot. Mostly I joined to meet people at work since I was new. The pounds just fell off. I've never been happier. I've never been a single digit size and I went from a 12/14 to a 6/8. Strangely, sometimes I look at myself and still feel like the same old overweight me. Other times, I feel slim and athletic. My body is not completely where I want to be. I still feel a little lumpy in places and my ultimate goal is to wear a bikini for the first time ever this upcoming summer (and to look GOOD in it). I have fallen off the wagon a bit since reaching goal. I guess it's that feeling that "now that I'm skinny I can eat what I want." A couple weeks of not tracking and being lazy has kicked me back into gear, though. Luckily I didn't gain back more than a pound or two and am getting back on track this week. Still, it's very exciting to be part of this world where I can actually buy clothes I like and fit in them! I hope everyone here gets to feel this way someday!!

So excited for you Once! You are a great inspiration! Great job on your weight loss and for having more goals to attain but to have a good outlook on where you are.

MiniDoodle....I believe that's what we call weighing anywhere in the 100s. I'm one of the ones praying for ONEderland.

Congrats! I think that maintaining weight loss is as hard as loosing the weight - it's a mindset you have to fall into.
Good luck on continuing your journey!

free1 TY that makes lots of sence w the comments I've read. Hey u will get there soon unless u r like me. It took me a year to go from 174# to 150# because I yo-yo thanks to my careless eating w my family I gave-in & ate w them & friends. My TOPS club gave me the support & to put myself #2, instead of being last, my genuine happiness & self-esteem r back. Contact me if u need more support, maybe I can share what I learned
3FC is fantastic
After maintaining my KOPS goal for over 2 yr, I'm lowering it to my original goal 141# now that I haven't gained the lumpy fat back. I wear a size 10 jeans & 12-14 top & hope w getting down to 141# my top will be a size 10-12 also.
RRB2 my daughter inlaw has her 4th babe also, will b 1 yr this month & she just got back into her size 8-10, she gained + 30# w him. Your bod will return...patience & counting calories/portion control + walking 1-2 miles daily & chasing the babes, LOL!

Merry Christmas Everyone!
