A Thread for getting out of the 160s
Hey Ladies- I haven't been around in a couple weeks, but I'm back and I thought a thread for the 160s would be great motivation for me.
I saw there was one for 170s and 150s, but I didn't see a 160s.

Is anyone interested in checking in and having a support thread for getting out of the 160s?

I'm at 169.4 this morning ;) My goal is 135, but my mini goal is to see 159 because it's been waaaaayyyy too long since I've seen that on a scale.

I'm going to be joining a gym today (because my eliptical isn't doing the job anymore) I plan on going to a Power class two days a week and a cardio class three days a week.

Anyone with me? :carrot:

RubyGuggenheim 06-15-2009 12:13 PM

I'm at 164.25. I was at 163.5 before this weekend, and i'm a little disappointed i went up, but it's not surprising because i was visiting friends and definitely ate/drank a lot.

Yaay for trying to get to 159!

forestroad 06-15-2009 12:15 PM

I was thinking about starting this thread as I've been hovering in the low 160s for a month or two (I had 1 day at 159). It is my June goal to hit 155 by the end of the month, which would be more weight than I'm accustomed to putting off in a month, but hey, it's a goal and if I set the bar high even if I fail I'll (hopefully) be out of the 160s! I haven't weighed myself since Friday, and I made a deal with myself not to get on the scale again till this Friday since I was getting a little obsessive, but I think right now I weigh 160 and hopefully this will be the push I need to really break into the 150s.

Civakas 06-15-2009 12:17 PM

I weighed in at 161.5 on Friday. I'm preparing myself to see the scale go UP this Friday at my weekly weigh-in, since last week I lost 3.3 pounds and I'm convinced my scale was wrong.

My goal is 130/135 but one of my mini goals is 155 - which I want to reach by the time my family visits on July 22nd. (They are going to be so surprised to see the weight loss!) So I sooo want to be out of the 160s!

My plan is to continue going to the gym 4 times a week (45-55 min on elliptical and a little bit of weight training). BUT, I'm going to start running on the treadmill too. I'm scared as ****, because not only am I overweight and suck at running, but I step heavy with my right foot, so my running on a treadmill sounds like this: *BOOM* (right) boom (l) *BOOM* (r). sigh.

CollegeGirl 06-15-2009 12:47 PM

I have been in the 160s for wayyyyy to long!!
I have been 163.8 for over 2 weeks and i desperately want to break into the 150s hopefully this thread and all of the encouragement and accountability will be just the boost i need!

Secret Swan 06-15-2009 01:01 PM

I am in! But I was 161 this morning, so hopefully not too far to go. On the other hand that was down 1.5 from the day before, which seems unlikely, so maybe it'll pop back up tomorrow. I hope not as I find that demoralizing despite knowing there is nothing to worry about.

willgethealthy 06-15-2009 01:17 PM

I am @ 167. Thanks for starting this thread, I will post as and when I have progress.

JulieRN 06-15-2009 03:20 PM

Count me in!!! I'm on a huge deadline I'm constantly thinking about (wedding in September)... My goal for that is 145, but I think I might be pushing it with the way my weight loss has been going (slooooow).
I've been weighing 165 the past 2 weeks or so, this morning I weighed 163, but I've been a little sick the past two days so I won't get my hopes up, since it's most likely water weight.

We can do it!!!

kelli32 06-15-2009 03:41 PM

I was 159 for a mili second about a month ago and that wasn't good enough! I start boxing again tomorrow (after recovering from a back injury) and I hope to make it twice a week along with going to the gym 3-4 times a week. I want to be 155 by the end of July.. eek! Guess I shouldn't have eaten that pizza last night.

kk140 06-15-2009 04:46 PM

I was thinking of starting this thread too!!
I weighed in at 168.2 on thursday.
I'm doing WW and 30 DS

yay can't wait!!:cb:

icandoallthings6613 06-15-2009 05:05 PM

I'm in! I've been hanging out between 161-163 for at least a month now...time for some forward progress!! I'd like to break my plateau and get into the 150s before July (seems like it should be easy, but it's proven to be very hard!).

GradPhase 06-15-2009 05:21 PM

Yes, yes, yes! I'm in!

forestroad 06-16-2009 03:26 PM

I cheated today and weighed myself on the scale at the gym, even though I said I wasn't going to weigh myself till Friday. I'd been feeling really fit and just couldn't resist a peek, and the scale read 156...yikes! I think most of that is water weight so I'm going to wait a week to officially declare myself out of the 160s, knock on wood. It's about time I had another big drop though--It's been happening about once a month for the last three months, where i see some very incremental and yo-yo progress, and then shed about 4lbs pretty quickly, and then hold steady again, so we'll see.

jellybellyjess 06-16-2009 03:54 PM

Hey i was just wondering if i could join! I am 168lbs and hoping to get out of the 160's! Only problem is i'm not 20 anything til next year! :( can i still join!?

JulieRN 06-16-2009 04:14 PM

jellybelly... yes of course you can join! :)

jellybellyjess 06-16-2009 05:02 PM

Thank you! just what i need to keep tabs of meself!

fashinjunkie09 06-16-2009 05:56 PM

yes yes yes! i have not been in the 150's since high school. i weigh in tomorrow and i should be around the 164-163 mark but my goal is to be in the 150's by July 1st. i weigh in on wednesdays, so i guess i will weigh myself tomorrow and keep posting my progress!

CollegeGirl 06-16-2009 07:08 PM

today I am at my lowest weight since freshman year of high school and maybe even eighth grade!!
I am 163.4 so I am hoping that this week I will get into the 162s :)
I had sushi tonight for dinner and hopefully the sodium wont do anything funny to me in the morning I was so good today!! i hope everyone else it doing great too

amyleigh 06-16-2009 07:21 PM

i'm so in! i've been stuck here for a bit. i went down to 159.8 and lost it, and then somehow in a matter of 2 days was back up to 165. I've been stuck there for quite a while. Going through some really tough emotional times right now, so it might not work out too well but i'm going to try!

Secret Swan 06-16-2009 10:49 PM

...and I gained a pound overnight. I didn't exercise at all yesterday, but I also stayed on plan with the eating. Why??? I hate when this happens. I can handle a stall much better than these little ups and downs that have me second-guessing and berating myself and wishing I had skipped dinner or telling me I should do more exercise as a punishment... I know better than this! I do. Weight fluctuates a little, my plan is sound, I can have one freakin lazy day, and there is no need to punish myself even if I do screw up, which I did not. I am trying to train myself like I trained my dog: lots of praise for desirable behavior and just silently and quickly moving on to something positive when I screw up. But all my good intentions can't change my thought pattern and I am having a rough day in terms of self-image. And now I am off to the gym to replace bad thoughts with good behavior. Probably the endorphins will help, anyway.

angelinelosesweight 06-16-2009 11:35 PM

Hey ladies- today was good for me- I did splurge on chipolte, but I stayed under my calorie limit :)

amyleigh 06-17-2009 10:30 AM

so i'm down to 162 YAY, of course it's becasue i've been such an emotional mess i haven't eaten in 3 days. i'm hoping that i can eat ok enough that it won't all come back on. keep our fingers crossed!

fashinjunkie09 06-17-2009 11:26 AM

i weighed in this morning and i am at 163.0 which is 1 lb over goal for the week yay! hoping to see the 150's sometime in the next week or two! keep up the good work everyone we can do this!

JulieRN 06-17-2009 11:49 AM

164.4 on the scale this morning! Ugh I feel so close yet so far away. I had dairy queen for the first time in AGES last night. A small cappachino heath blizzard. 600 calories. Planned, so I didn't go over in points or anything, but I felt pretty sick afterwards, even if it was good. I have ice cream almost every night - skinny cow sandwiches or 0 pt fudgicles, but the blizzard was a bit much, even a small! Funny how your tastes change. I used to be able to eat that whole thing no problems.

Keep on truckin' gals... we'll be in the "getting out of the 150's" thread soon enough!

jellybellyjess 06-17-2009 04:22 PM

Hey all, just thought i'd post to say i lost another 2lbs today! wahoo! 166lbs now and going down!
:D :D
we can do it!!
Jess x

CollegeGirl 06-17-2009 04:46 PM

I was up this morning due to water retention I was up to 165.4 UGH!! but I drank tons of water to flush it all out and I already and back down to 164.8 so I am hoping that when I wake up in the morning I will see a loss because I have been perfectly on plan for the last week or so!!

gottalose20 06-17-2009 10:02 PM

Oh, perfect thread. The 160s are my nemesis- I've always gotten stuck here. Oh how I long to see a 150-anything on the scale! Some of you ladies are so close- keep going and beat the evil 160s!

angelinelosesweight 06-17-2009 10:34 PM

I'm still at 169 :( tomorrow is another day I guess :) hope hope hope :)

icandoallthings6613 06-18-2009 12:38 AM

I'm going to Alaska for 3 weeks...hopefully I will manage to lose a pound or two while I'm gone, but my focus will be just maintaining around 162-3. I hope this thread is still going strong when I get back, though it seems like a few of you will have reached the 150s by then!! Best of luck!!

RubyGuggenheim 06-18-2009 07:04 AM

I had gained this past weekend and then lost a little and gained a little, so I was at 164 yesterday morning. Yesterday was also my day of rest from serious working out, and I didn't eat particularly well (hot dog for lunch, burger for dinner) but when I got on the scale this morning I was 162.8.

It was unsurprising since I knew I had been retaining a lot of water, but it was still happy making! Hope I don't pop back up tomorrow.

I'm really really hoping I can keep myself under control this weekend and not go crazy eating just because my brother is coming to visit. Normally when he comes (which is every couple months) eating for us is sort of an event, we get ice cream and pastries and go out to taco bell. I just need to say no!

gottalose20 06-18-2009 09:38 AM

Weighed in at 168 today, woo.

Ruby and icandoallthings- ahh, you guys are so close! Be good. :)

forestroad 06-18-2009 09:46 AM

Third day in a row in the mid-150s...first time out of the 160s in 3 years!! See you in the next thread :)

Congrats! Me = jealous!

forestroad 06-18-2009 11:27 AM

Thanks Ruby...Good luck this weekend resisting the taco bell, you are soooo close :)

Civakas 06-19-2009 06:43 AM

161.8, up 3 ounces. I probably would have actually lost if I had gone to the gym yesterday, but I was a bit put off because it was raining outside and I was up two pounds yesterday. =b By next Friday I WILL be out of the 160s. =)

RubyGuggenheim 06-19-2009 07:05 AM

I weighed in at 161.8 today too, which is a one pound loss for me! If I can stick to my guns this weekend, I think I'll be out of the 160s in a week or so.

Good luck this weekend, everyone!

Secret Swan 06-19-2009 08:12 AM

Stuck, stuck, STUCK at 162! It is driving me nuts! Mind, not so nuts that I went to the gym yesterday or anything. Oh well, I will do it tonight, and I HAVE been eating under my calorie limit, so it is bound to come off eventually. It's just science, right? Stupid plateau.

RubyGuggenheim 06-19-2009 09:36 AM

When I plateau I stick to my eating plan but work out in the morning for a couple days. It's often just the bump I need.

kk140 06-19-2009 03:05 PM

Last thursday I was 168.2 and yesterday I weighed in at 169.2! I gained a pound :(
Still in the 160's though but dying to get out! I'll keep working on it

CollegeGirl 06-19-2009 07:45 PM

UGH!!!!!! I am still at 163.8 I cannot seem to break it, does anyone know if people just get "stuck" at a weight. I am starting to get discouraged because I have been working harder than ever and i am not seeing a change. Any tips or tricks to see a pound drop? haha
