S/C/G: 253/IP Start 235.5/183/160

Talking Finally broke free...

This month will make 5 months that I have been on IP. From October thru the end of December, I was unstoppable. And you would think the holidays would be my greatest challenge... I mean, it was but I didn't allow myself to cheat. However, after the New Year, most of my old habits started to kick in. I still didn't "cheat cheat", but I was unable to keep the weight off. I didn't gain significantly, but it was like a rollercoaster ride. Some weeks were down, then I went back up, and it kept going like that for about 2 months. I never though I'd break free...

Until this morning. I changed my WI day because Saturday nights are challenging for me because of my work schedule, so now I weigh myself on Monday. However, yesterday I decided to weigh anyway, just for haha's. I changed what I had during the week, and was ready for that scale... but still had that voice of doubt in the back of my head. I ignored it and stepped on. Down 4.5! I screamed! That meant I only had 1 pound to go before I got under 200. Well, I got on it again this morning, and this is what it read...

Thanx! It'll get there before you know it. It took me 8 years, two trips to WW with no success before I got to the point where I couldn't do it anymore. It wasn't until my cousin did IP that I found out about it, was hesitant because of the cost, but I won't look back now. My highest weight was 253 in 2006, and I've made it my goal to NEVER go back there again. 18's, 20's and 22's are a thing of the past... if I can get there, so can you! Just keep sticking to the program! You got this!

I am laughing with you, scottysgirl, 'cause exactly the same thing happened to me this morning! After weeks or up one and down one, up one and down one, I got stuck at EXACTLY 200.00. Everyday, it stared at me. I tried weighing with no clothes, took off rings and jewelry, everything. Still 200.00.

So this morning, low and behold, 199.2. I assume the incredible joy I felt must be close to what you felt. Let's hang in there and celebrate by knocking off a few more!

Congrats to both of you and what a great day for you both.
I have been stuck at 204 and I'm thinking I will be there forever but I've heard both of you say that it does change.
