Height: 5'5"


Gr. I got down to 255 and then promptly popped back up and teetered around 260... I think it's a mix of TOM and I think I've been too strict... I've gone almost a month without any cheating, and the past week I've been eating super low calorie due to getting busy and skipping meals... Some days less than a thousand calories which is really bad.

Today and yesterday i ate kinda crappy... And weirdly I DROPPED weight. So I'm thinking about trying calorie cycling or making sure to incorporate a cheat day every week to kick my metabolism in the ***. I also went grocery shopping and got lots of healthy easy snacks so I can force myself to eat a few bites every hour whether I want it or not.

I WANT to get down to 252.5 pounds. 25% of my goal. I'm tired of hanging between 255 and 260. I want it gone.

258 -

I've been incredibly sick the last couple days. I either eat nothing or I eat something terrible. Sinus infection, strep throat, tired all day...

I was lucky to have the weekend off work, I dont even know if I can make it this week working 12 hour days... These 250's are going to be worse than the 260's!

On top of being really sick its TOM for meeeee. Maybe I can manage to stay strong on the late 250's and at least not inch upwards. Who knows, with as crazy as bodys are sometimes maybe it'll make me lose a few pounds instead of me fearing a gain!

Stay strong everyone~~ That 240's thread is so close for so many of you!!!

I'm feeling worried . . . I don't want to go back up to the getting out of the 270's thread . . . I'm at 270.2 right now, and went all the way up to 273 three days ago . . . but it's my time of month, so hopefully that's all it is. In better news, I've started doing yoga and really love, love, LOVE how it makes my body feel. How you all doing this lovely Monday as we head into another week? Great, I hope!

254.2 today. I'll take it. I really hope to make it to the 240's soon. Not that I'm not enjoying you guys in this decade, but I'm ready to move on!

Signed up with a new fancy gym yesterday. Long and the short is: Personal trainers are f-ing expensive! There is an intro program that is much more my speed. I'm hoping that the gym's hefty price tag keeps me going all the time.

I ordered a yoga mat off the internet that should be arriving in a day or two, I am looking forward to starting Yoga soon!

I stepped on the scale this morning and saw 259.3! It was an exciting moment and definitely one to keep me motivated. Although yesterday I did my first round of monthly measurements and love having that as a NSV to look forward to.

Silverfire I know what you mean about hating to shell out for a pricey gym... But if it is more comfortable to you and more likely to keep you coming back, then it is worth it. Right now I am a member at a local boutique gym because I feel more comfortable than at my local big box gym. I have been going 5x a week. I find that anything more for me stresses me out, and anything less and it doesn't become a priority.

Also, is it possible to add members to our fit bit friends? If so, how? Thanks.

I was back up to 259 on Friday. I didn't post about it because I was ashamed. Things have been rough and my eating and exercise habits are suffering because of it. One of my cats died on Thursday... It was really sudden too, I woke up and found him dead. He was old and had some health problems but he was totally fine the night before. He was the cat I was closest to, who has gotten me through so much. Both of my parents died in 2013. And over the past 2 years I've had 3 cats and a rabbit die. It's hard to feel positive about anything.
I'm trying really hard to look at this gain positively though. I see people here excited about hitting 259 and I remember how excited I was to get under 260. And how excited I was to get under 300. Just a year ago that seemed impossible. I'm going to try to focus on my fitness levels and eating habits more than the scale. It's hard to not want to race through the weight loss but I know that I'm better off doing it slowly anyway.

Not sure if it's because I spent all last night sicker than a dog and puking my guts out, but I'll take it. I weighed myself on my other scale just be be sure at it said 249.6! WOOOO! I might be out of the 250's, despite the fact that my steps have been abysmal this last week.

Silverfire I took a Yoga class and absolutely loved it! I really want to get back into it, I went 2 times a week for 12 weeks and my flexibility improved so much!

I had gotten down to 255 before I hit TOM and a speed bump... today I'm at 256... So hopefully I'm back in the right direction by end of the week.

I've been MIA! I started Couch25K and I've just been staying away from the scale; it gives me anxiety; I'm weighing in again on Saturday, so we'll see where I am! I just got down jogging (for lack of a better word! LOL) and doing a kettle bell circuit and I am pooped! Night all!

I've been a little stuck the last few days. It's TOM for me so I am at a stand still. Had a FANTASTIC Boot Camp class tonight though that I am feeling wonderful about. Hopefully I will truly "fly" through the 260s
