Best of luck to you!
You will get to your goal...and so will I.
All it takes is a LOT of time and perseverance.
I count my calories and keep a record on LoseIt.com. It really helps me keep on track.
I set my calories for a 1.5 lb loss per week. (1550 per day) That way I can lose over 50 pounds per year.
If you do the same, by this time next summer you might be under 140
You WILL get back to 140...and 120...if you stick to it for the long haul.
So many people quit when they lose 20 pounds. Don't do that. Hang in there.
Ask for help if you feel like quitting.
And those 2 skinny girls will be so jealous when you end up looking nicer than they do next year.
It just takes time....and I got so discouraged this morning, I felt like quitting. But I decided to keep counting my calories every day, to lose that extra 22 pounds this year. I'll be down another clothing size if I lose it. And I'll look that much better this coming New Year.
So I joined two weight loss challenges today to keep myself focused.
I am getting more done around the house now, and I feel happier wearing 2 sizes smaller.
