Hi everyone, I thought I'd post this here because you folks are the pros on getting to goal.
My story - I started out in Dec 99 at 292.6 pounds. Now here it is almost two years later, and I'm at 174.6. My WW goal is 169 (top of my range) and my personal is 165.
Yup, I'm getting close, but I've been a yo yo now for weeks. I've been bouncing from 171.8 to my current weight for 2 months. And I'm getting really frustrated. At weigh in last night I went up 2.8 pounds!!!! ARGH!!!!
Please share with me any advice you have to break through to goal and also your personal experience (were the last 5 pounds the hardest for you too?) I've decided this week to be like a new member again. Double check points for everything and weigh and measure. Sigh. Sorry for the book, but I'm down.
The really crazy thing is I feel perhaps more fat right now than I did before joining WW in the first place! (Context: my period is due in the next couple of days which is part of the reason I feel like a whale. But that doesn't explain the pattern of gaining and losing.)
Thanks for any insight you can share!
