Thumbs up Getting out of the 290's and 280's

My name is Erin, and am new(ish) here and have not seen a thread like this...maybe because there are not a lot of big big girls like me on here, but just in case there are any lurkers out there!! This is the place to be gals! ...and the place to NOT be because we are on a journey out of these numbers!
Right now I am at work having lunch that is a salad inspired by gyros. You know mama would rather be having that gyro, HAHA! But this is good too
Just a little introduction, I started a couple of weeks ago at 303 lbs the most I have EVER weighed! Currently today I am at 300 lbs so yay me I decided to post this instead of 300's because I am almost to the 290's and want to start a group that I will be in for awhile (but not too long if you know what I mean!) I have been trying to post actively so I can have those pretty little signature countdowns!

If you are here please reply and join the discussion! We are here to support each other through good and bad!

Well looks like it is just me in here
The weekend was a really lazy one for me unfortunately. I had pains from a migraine I had later in the week and was in no mood to workout, I think the most I did was wash my car at my dads house which is actually really physical! My arms were beat! Sunday I did nothing. This is the first weekend after my family vacation so I don't feel too bad for that to be honest. This weekend I am planning to do something outdoors with my daughter and we are taking her to the waterpark Sunday so lots of pool play!

My weight has not changed...up and down between 303 and 301. Maybe I can push into the 290's this week! Wish me luck!

You aren't alone! I'm here too: my scale has me in the mid 290's but the mean dr. office one tried telling me I was 301 this afternoon. I'll stick with mine. I just threw my back out so I'm on the warpath to drop weight to avoid surgery.

Hi Shea!
The scale at the doctors office is always the worst! I feel you on the losing weight to avoid surgery. I had really bad sciatic nerve issues back before my previous weight loss and complained to a doctor about them and he flat out said to lose weight. They did go away when I did so it worked lol. So glad you joined this thread!

I am finally in the 290's officially. Had a very active weekend and the scale shows. Got down to 298 but work might have had a pizza day and I might have joined in it so I weighed in at 299 today. Thinking of having another active weekend again to keep this going!

Hi there. I also started around 300. I am down to 284 and eat very little carbs and have added exercise at least 3 times a week. Its hard getting back into exercise.

I've got to get back to the gym too; I'm down to 182, so almost 20 lbs down. I can't see a difference yet, but I know I want to get the muscle tone back where it used to be.
