Default A milestone for me

So On Jan 1, 2009 I stepped on the scale and was horrified to see 341. This was my stating point. Today I got on the scale and weight 316.

25 lbs gone forever!!

About 5 months to lose those 25 lbs, but slow and steady is what's working for me.

Congrats! Slow and steady is the way to go - it's about a lifestyle change not a diet - keep it up and good luck

GlitterDucky, I've lost the same amount in the same time frame. Sometimes I feel it's unbearably slow, but just think about it--we could be about 60 pounds lighter on January 1, 2010 than we were on January 1, 2009. That makes it seem a little better!

Short-Term Goal

One dancer for each 5 lbs lost!

I'm also on the 'slow and steady' track. I've tried 'sprinting' in the past and always burned out. It's hard to watch it come off S-L-O-W and yet I've now lost more weight than I ever have before, it truly does add up over time.

Keep going. There is no 'end' or true destination at which point our lives are transformed and the problem is all solved. It will be a continuous slow and steady for our whole lives so we may as well ease into it in a natural way. Before you know it, that darn '3' will be GONE. You're doing great.

1st goal- ONEDERLAND! Check!
2nd goal- Less than 194 (a number I've been stuck at before) CHECK!
3rd goal- Reach the 180's- haven't been there since 1999. CHECK!
4th goal- 180 which means hitting the 50 lbs. lost mark! Check!
5th goal- Switching to size goals now more than pounds goals. Goal is to make it to size 12, at whatever weight that happens. CHECK!
6th goal- Size 10! (can't even believe this is possible!)
7th goal- Size 8 and MAINTAIN!
