Any other 230's and 220's out there??
I need some extra motivation to keep moving. THis isnt my first attempt at losing. Last time I lost and got down to 220( 2008) this year I got up to 250 and Ive been doing well but in the past the 230s and 220s have always been the hardest to get out off. Its been almost ten years since I weighed in the two teens. So Im really set to getting there. Anyone else want to join I need all the motivation I can get!!!!:hug:

I want to join!
I am just getting started back and weighed 236 on the dot this morning. I want to get down to at least 180. Maybe we can check in with each other daily on here?

What diet are you doing? I have started walking and stopped drinking soda but it doesn't come off as easily as it used to!

I am with you! I am desperate to see 22? . Going to up my exercise this week. What are you doing for exercise? I get out and walk 3-4 times a week. I have picked i up to a trot for as long as I can handle. which isnt very long but it feels AWESEOME!!

Me too!! I had gotten down to 213 (240 about a year ago), then my Dad got really sick and passed away a couple of months ago and I have had a really hard time getting back on the wagon after indulging in all of the comfort food and not working out. Now I am back up to 226, but I am determined to get it going again. South Beach and walking on the treadmill 4-5 days a week helps me. I'm back!!!

Come on ladies, we CAN do this!! We just need to not let ourselves get discouraged. I know one of my big problems is making a "bad food decision" and then thinking "well, I have already messed up my day how about a pizza". I need support too. Lets get through this together!

I am with you ladies! I have been seeing 229 and then back up to 230 the last few days. I am ready for the 2 teens big time! I am happy to see you started a thread for this weight category. The 230's were my nemesis. :)

Oh ladies I feel all your pain. I've finally fully committed to my diet two days ago after realizing that I weight 247... not 220 like I thought.. OUCH! I'm totally up for some serious support on this thread! We can all do this if we just take it one day at a time. I know my biggest problems are sweets, chinese food, and alcoholic beverages. But we can over come these obstacles!!!

I also can't wait for the two-teens!!! It's soooo close I can almost feel it, yet at the same time it also still feels far away. I'm REALLY hoping I can get there by the end of the month, because I'm going to visit my boyfriend and not only will he get to see me way smaller than he has yet, but also, we're going to the annual Red Cross volunteer BBQ (he's a Red Cross volunteer) and last year when I was there I was prolly 160-170.... I LOVE it when people say "OMG you've lost weight" which at this point they will prolly do ANYways, but the smaller I get, the louder they'll say it! :D

Matilda08 07-07-2010 01:06 PM

:DYAY:carrot: Lets get this party started ladies!!!

Right now Im workout five times per week and I count calories. The past month and a half has been great because I was at 250. I have to keep going though. I workout at an all ladies gym so my workouts are always different because they have about 15-20 different classes. When I dont take classes I run/jog and I am loving it. I totally feel the burn.

Feel free to post as often as you like. We can get there together!!!!!

I just hit 230 on the nose this morning! I can't even remember the last time I weighed less than 240...so this is exciting for me.

I plan on doing some cardio later to celebrate. :)

Stripes 07-07-2010 01:22 PM

I'm more or less 220 and trying hard to get my weight to go down in stead of up ;)

muelle12 07-07-2010 02:30 PM

Just a quick question... Does Counting Calories work better than just watching what I eat?? I haven't tried it before, and it seems like a hassle, but if the results are there then I'm down to try it!

Staying positve the whole way through
My first post. I don't know how to do the weight line though.
I just started Ideal Protein on 25th June. I weighed in at 245.
Yesterday 6th July I weighed in at 238.5 Down 6 1/2 lbs!!!!
I haven't exercised as yet. Will start in a couple of weeks.
Even though I lost, my body fat percentage went up??!! go figure.
My coach said that this is normal for the first week. I'm hoping
to get down to about 145 lbs. I wanna be thin and able to shop, shop,
shop in all the trendy boutiques. We will all get there, we just have to
stay positive and hang in there!!;)

This totally depends on the person. I like counting calories because you can always fit anything in your budget. I love the variety even though I mainly eat the samethings lol

How is everyone? I worked my behind off today so I hope it shows on the scale diet was on point also!
