Hello!! I've been lurking in your thread for the longest time
I am longing to be around 142, that's my lowest adult weight, though I see women on the board who are 5'6" who are getting down to the 130's...dream, dream
Anyway here is where I have been in the 150's and brief 140's for the past year-ish...
Jan. 2012 - 154
Feb. 2012 - 148
March 2012 -144
April 2012 - 146
May 2012 - 142
June 2012 - 143
No record of weighing from late June until Oct. 1st!! Working out dropped from 6 X's a week to barely 3 times. And totally was off program eating.
Oct. 2012 - 152
Nov. 2012 - range of 150 to 154
Dec. 2012 - no record of weight, too sad I guess!
Jan. 2013 - 155
Feb. 2013 - 154
March 2013 - 153
April 2013 - 151
So I see that if I do not try to limit my eating, but still work out, I stay around the mid to high 150's. It is only with adamant reduced calories, eating clean, and working out HARD that I go down in size/weight.
I want to be out of the 150's so badly! I need a cushion of about 6 pounds I think, because I can fluctuate close to 4 pounds up or down on any given day.
And I only let myself daydream about what my body would look like in the 130's, maybe I would not have these tree trunk ugly legs and could wear a skirt with black tights.
I realize the number on the scale is not the whole picture, I would like my clothes size to be a loose 8 or even a 6. But I am ruled by that stupid number on the scale
Anyway even though I am hovering at 150 now I'd love to join you all, because I'll be fighting that 150 for a while
