Default GET ME OUT OF THE 170s/160s/150s

Can we have one of these here!? None of these ones in any of the other sections are very active. I'm hoping this large of a weight frame will apply to many of us as to keep this thread active.

Please join me in lamenting these pounds. Pretty please!

Any interest?

I will join to lament this 172 pound rut I'm in. I really want to be in the 160s. I would love to weigh less than my husband, some day.

Yeah, I hear you there. I will have a new low after my . ends and then go up again then have a new low again the next month. I am losing 2 maybe 3 pounds once a month now and that seems to be it. My numbers indicate about 1.5 pounds a week....not sure if my metabolism has slowed beyond the norm or if my cal count is off...??? ( I did accedentially buy and eat the full fat Greek yogurt and not the fat free kind this last week...what else am I missing?) I am here to lament the 70's I should have been to my first goal (165 no longer obese) by my one year-aversary next month but I don't see my self getting there until Christmas. 174 is better than 220-something but I am ready to move to the last 10%

I'm pretty close to getting out of the 150's... and I think once I'm in the 140's I'm going to take a little break and focus on really getting back into running and train for another marathon... I know from my past experience that my body settles in the 130's when I'm running seriously...

As far as those last 10 lbs., they might require some "real" work... and by that I mean a visit to a good plastic surgeon... lol...

I guess we'll see...

I'm glad to have company. So we are agreed we can just come here and complain!? And then come here and celebrate even the smallest loss! YAY!

Was 161 this morning, that's a .6 loss! I really want to start October in the 150s!

Let me ask you all something, honest answers please: I have 2 scales in my bathroom. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being certifiable, how crazy is that? If it makes any difference (as though it would, LOL), 1 is a digital, and 1 is an old school spring scale (it always weighs me less).

EXACTLY! I can be 156 if I lean ALLLLL the way forward. Which is why I keep the scale, it makes me happy. Then my other scale makes me sad.

I guess that makes me a masochist.

In all seriousness though, I think I have a decent chance of getting out of the 160s by Oct 1st! FINGERS CROSSED!

late 170s, early 180s, a pint of ice cream last night and avoiding the scale like the plague.

ate like, around 1600 cals today, which is good with my activity levels as my personal goals are between 1700 and 1800s. but i never want to see the 180s again.

lets keep this thread going! if tomorrow is good, i will weigh friday morning, as i havent weighed since monday. monday was a clean day, tuesday- not so much. haha
awesome.
