S/C/G: 155/150/125-130

Height: 5' 5"


Hi there! I'm happy to find this forum and hope I can learn some tips for dealing with that (so, so difficult) last 15-20.

I had been up to a high of 155-160 at one point, then I had gotten down to 130 a few years ago... and then I got pregnant, and gained it all back! Now I'm working again. 120 is my goal, but I'd probably be pretty happy with 125.

One thing that I find discouraging is that when you get down to having 20ish pounds to go, people tend to say stuff like "Oh, you look great just as you are! You don't need to lose weight!" So many people are obese in the U.S. today that someone who is "only" 20 pounds over their ideal weight is seen as being a skinny mini! Sure, I may not "need" to lose weight, but I want to! I want to be the best me I can be, and I feel best when I'm thin and lean and fit.
