AKT I know that feeling. We have been eating out a lot lately too and it has slowed down my loss this week. In fact I'm up a lb from where I was last week! I've also slowed down my running because I'm training for a 10k, and now I'm not running every day like I used to. I have a long run scheduled for today though so hopefully that'll get things moving in the right direction.

Hey Fat Pants! nice to see you here!!

Hi Fellow 160-ers - I'm very excited to be here!! I've been wanting to get out of the 170s for the longest time!

I reached 168lbs!! And have maintained it for 4 days. I'm still a little nervous that I will shoot back up to 170 lbs but I thought I would take the plunge and join you guys here

Congrats Macky and Welcome Echo!

My reboot seems to be working. I'm down a pound since yesterday: 168.4. I also signed up for my next 5k, on Oct 3. I've done a good job keeping to my running schedule this week.

Default Yay!

I'm SO happy to have found this forum!! Motivation to get out of the 160's is exactly what I need!

I have a very small build for a tall person and I felt and looked my best at 135-145 pounds. I haven't been in that range for three years though and have been trying to get back to it since. I was hovering in the 153 range for two years, and somehow mysteriously gained about 15 pounds in just three weeks!! I have no idea how as I was doing exactly the same thing as before, except that maybe my age (turning 25) or my digestive disease caught up with me. I'm the heaviest right now I've ever been and NONE of my clothes fit, yet I don't want to buy new clothes until I lose weight!

I'm 165-168 now, depending on the day.
IDEAL GOAL: 145 by December 4th (when I turn 25)! 20 pounds in 3 months though...I don't know.
FIRST MINI GOAL: See 159 again (6 pounds or so to go)...I hope to have this accomplished as quickly as possible so my darned clothes fit.
SECOND MINI GOAL: See 155 again by November 1st - reward for this will be buying myself a few seasons of a DVD series. :-)
THIRD MINI GOAL: See 150 again!

Today I started an exercise program (I wasn't exercising at all before), walking 3 miles four or five times a week, and sweating for an hour.

Welcome Echo and rainsweptviola!

My life this week seems to be about the non-scale victories. I was going through my closet last night looking for things that were too big or too ratty to wear again and I came across a dress and a pair of jeans that I bought at a second hand store as motivation as they were both too small.

Last night I put on the jeans and I could do them up without lying on my bed and sucking everything in. I could breathe while wearing them! Although they're a little muffin toppy still, I can wear them with a loose top. I was also able to do up the zipper in the dress right to the top. It's a teensy bit tight in the chest but that's just the story of my post puberty life.

I was so excited that I danced around the living room in both items...much to the amusement of my husband who has now been charged with finding a place for me to wear the dress .

So even in the scale stays put...something's changing for the good.

1 more pound to lose and i get to change the clothes on my model version of me. hehehe at the moment she's wearing a white dress - its this little ritual thing i do, for every 2lbs lost, i change her clothes hehe. i heard its a good idea to visualise yourself as slimmer. as you attract what you think about.


And i have it as my desktop background on my computer hehe.

Well, I started exercising three days ago and have walked/ran three miles every day since. My weight *appears* to have gone down from 168 to 163.4 with the sweating (literally, when I get off the treadmill I'm SOAKED). It's stayed at 163.4 for two mornings now...so here's to hoping!!

I'm pretty much posting this just so I can get enough posts to include my ticker link! LOL

Thanks for the wonderful welcome ECHO!! And congrats on your weight loss so far!

I am still at 161 today . Sometimes i am stuck at the same weight for 2-3 weeks at a stretch and then i suddenly drop 2 (or sometimes 3) lbs. in 2 days. Its so frustating to keep on putting the effort and not see any results. I dont put in a lot of effort though nowadays, since my mom-dad are staying with me for 2 months, so enjoying mom's cooked food . But I do try to get in some form of exercise whenever I can!

still 165.5 better than gaining though! I haven't been eating as well as I should. Too much sugar I think. I will start fresh tomorrow, I'm giving away my 90 calorie soy ice cream sandwiches and 100-calorie dark chocolate bars to one of my friends. Too much temptation to keep them here...lol

woot i was so bummed that the scale didn't move when I weighed in yesterday but then my good friend TOM stopped in today so that explains a lot LOL. Like the constant craving of sweets as well as no weight loss this week.

Good luck all.
See you in the 150's.
