Great job Evie! I know it's nice to feel like you've settled into the next decade before actually making the jump. No harm in that!

Especially since the next threads typically cover two decades.

The past two days I've been hovering around 290ish so hopefully it won't be too long until I'm with ya in the 280's. I'm assuming I'll go back up a bit this week as that's how my weightloss tends to go. :)

Down by a pound. Miracles happen! :)

Hi! I am new to this thread, but not the forum. I've been struggling with my weight for over a decade.

I am down from 315.6lbs to 296.8 as of today. I am hoping to fly through the 290s and join you all soon in the 280s!

Thanks, Rodeogirl! :) I'll bet you'll be in the 280's soon, too. And I hear you on the bit about "go back up . . . that's how my weightloss tends to go."

I was up yesterday, then down today from yesterday, but still not at where I was at Tuesday. Very maddening (but still ultimately down and I've been eating well, in control, etc., so I'm hoping it's just a normal body thing, not an actual fat gain).

Good luck to us both!

Welcome to this thread. I love it here (though plan to leave a.s.a.p. lol!); keeps me very motivated to think in small term goals, rather than look at my goal as a whole.

And excellent work so far. Yay! You (and hopefully all of us here) will be in the 280s thread soon. :)

How is everyones weekend going? My weekly weigh in day is tomorrow and I am pretty nervous so we will see.

rodeogirl 05-26-2013 06:03 AM

I had a retreat for school and ate terribly - lots of salt for a couple days and way too many calories. Oh well, I'm gonna just keep at it. :)

JustB1027 05-26-2013 09:16 PM

This morning I weighed in at 289 even. Lets see if it lasts.

EvieBaby 05-27-2013 01:24 PM

:( :( Very frustrated by the past week's daily weigh in. Feel like with the way I've been eating I should be down below 286 (my lowest since I started here April 20)--not slowly creeping up/maintaining a higher weight (289.2). Hope I can keep motivated and not eat junk!

JustB1027 05-27-2013 06:13 PM

I can't handle daily weighing because it stresses me out.

LOL, but also small groan. I think you're wise. But I have a double problem. Daily weighing stresses me out a little--but it keeps me focused the whole day. When I weigh in weekly (or worse, monthly), I have a really hard time fighting the "Oh, well, I'll just over eat tonight once more--then I'll make up for it tomorrow." (Which, of course, only leads to "one more" binge, then "one more.")

If I'm still feeling frustrated by daily scale trips end of the month, however, I will try weekly just to change it up.

rodeogirl 05-28-2013 04:47 PM

I weigh daily otherwise I just give up. I only record the weekly number on Sunday mornings though, so that's the only number that counts.

I didn't weigh this past Sunday so I don't get to enter anything for this week but am holding pretty steady in the mid 290's.

I'm trying to be a lot less focused on how much weight I'm losing and a lot more focused on eating healthy for the rest of my life. I know that I can't strictly count calories forever, it'll drive me nuts. So while I'm still aware of the calories I'm eating, I'm not tracking every tic-tac. My scale is the thing keeping me honest.

I set a threshold - if my weight is over that threshold for three weeks in a row, then I have to go back to a very strict calorie counting regime. My current threshold is 299. If I record three Sundays in a row over 299 then I would have to go back to the strict food diary.

After I get into the 280's I'll bump it down to 295, etc.

Anyhow my scale is a critical tool and daily weighing is a big piece of the accountability.

You are doing great!!!!

You'll be leaving us soon - I hope I end up in the 280's thread before you leave it. :)

JustB1027 05-28-2013 08:45 PM

Thanks! You will! With the daily weighing if it is up that frustrates me and makes me binge even more.
