Fat Pants- What halfs are you running? I am in CO too and am planning on running the Horsetooth half in April.
Hey Ella! I'm planning on the Colorado (Ft Collins) Half in May as my first HM... then probably the American Discovery Trail Half and the Denver Half.

Hey Guys,

Long time no post, but dont worry I have been creeping...lol.. I weighted in this morning at 146.4. Now this isn't my lowest weight but at the same time I weighted in on Tuesday at 151.. So this is a huge improvement.. I have huge motivation right now we have decided to go on a last minute hot trip for the last week in Feb. So I want to be trim and thin by then.. So everytime I reach for that extra piece of cheese or chocolate or 2nd beer I just think of how I could look in a bikin and how I will look if I eat/drink that.. I have also re-evaluted my plateau. I figure I am on an attitude plateau.. I eat pretty good during the week, go crazy on the weekend, and am not accountable for everything I put in my mouth.. DUHHHHH... I just couldn't understand why I wasent losing anymore.. Well this week has been a huge eye opener and I feel like I am back on track.. I also cant wait for my official weigh in on Tuesday.

For all the newbies... Welcome this is a great group who are constantly chattering and supporting each other... Good luck to everone and I know with a little hard work we will reach our goals!!!

Nicole

I weighed in at 149 shortly after New Years; now almost a month later I bounce between 146 and 148. I'm so frustrated...it seems like the scale just will not move. I'm not putting in a huge amount of effort, but Im definitely not eating enough calories to sustain 148 pounds and I walk 2 miles a day. Whats going on? I dont know if I am underestimating my calories? I do tend to eat a little more on weekends. I want to get to around 143 in the next two weeks and am thinking about doing the master cleanse to kick start it for 2 days...

Fatpants- My brother ran the Colorado marathon last year, he said it was beautiful!

Polka- I feel your pain. I feel like every tenth of a pound is a battle.

140.2 this morning. Looks like I will make my goal of 140 by Feb. 1st but the first few pounds came off really fast and now I am creeping along. At this rate I wont make my goal of 135 by valentines day. I think I need to kick up the weight training. I had been avoiding it since I have been training for a half marathon, but it's time to kick it up!

How are you ladies doing on your goals? Happy weekend!

It was my mom's 50th bday...weekend long celebration. Lots of food and alcohol. Ehh.

I am seriously cracking down starting tomorrow. No more junk food, hitting the gym everyday, I need to get back into the routine of it all. I want to be 130 by April 1st, which is pretty ambitious so I need to get kickin!

FatPants, me too. I have my period, but I'm estimating that I'm 143-144ish right now. So, let's both get below 140 by the end of this month!

I can't wait to get out of the 140s! I have a lot of gift certificates to spend, so I'm very excited to meet my 140 minigoal so I can finally buy myself new pants!

Congrats s00n!

I haven't visited in like 3 weeks... I been battling my eating lifestyle since the year started, and have been 140-145lbs this past month. I made it briefly to 136lb in december, but it didn't last, and to get there I had been very diligent with my diet and workout... and I just haven't been able to get back into the discipline mode. Any advice... I still want to shed ~20lbs... but my anxiety is taking over

For the first time since I started losing weight 4 months ago I feel "stuck." I have been weighing in for the past week and a half around 149--between 148.6-149.4. I just can't seem to get down any lower than this. Arrrrgghhhh! The only good news is that I have not seen the 150's in a couple of weeks. If you had told me back in October of last year that in 4 short months I would be complaining about being stuck at 149 I would have told you that I would be grateful, not complaining! LOL. However, I am not the person I used to be --I know I can lose weight and I have changed my lifestyle and lost 30+ lbs and I really really really want to get to goal by June/July. So, being stuck in the high 140's at this point in time is not acceptable to me anymore.

Logically, I know what I need to do to lose these last 25 lbs. I need to stick to what worked for me these last 4 months--eating less, exercising more. I already exercise every day, but I need to add in a little bit more cardio and a strength training program. My biggest problem lately is snacking. I need to cut out the little snacking I do throughout the day on things like dark choc covered ginger and corn tortilla chips and the like. I am going to have to eliminate these things until I can safely eat just a few of them once a day again.

Of course, what did I do this morning? I had oatmeal dark choc chip cookies (homemade, semi-healthy & low sugar, but still!) for breakfast. Oh well. Chin up and I'll make the rest of the day perfectly on plan and healthy. Plus lots of water. I have not binged in 29 days (and that was a very small binge after 60+ days of not bingeing) and I feel no desire to. Also, I have another exercise date w/ my puppy this afternoon at the huge park near us so that should help my calorie deficit for the day.

Congrats to all the girls who are seeing drops on the scale! I can't wait to move my ticker downwards again.

I figured out yesterday why I was feeling so hungry lately--TOM arrived! It was a little earlier than expected (4-5 days) but that's OK.

I am feeling much better today than when I last posted now that I understand the reason for my stall...although since it was so short-term, I probably made a bigger deal out of it than I should have. The scale is going down again but since I'm on TOM it's still 1/2 lb higher than my ticker weight. I'm sure I'll see a loss soon, though, because my clothes are getting looser so I know I'm losing inches.

It rained here overnight for an hour or so but the weather was beautiful for my walk/jog this morning w/ my puppy Zach. It's currently 57 degrees and sunny w/ blue skies and huge puffy cotton ball-esque clouds. I am going to sit out by the pool for 15 minutes in a little bit to get some vitamin D! Hope everyone else has a fabulous Sunday!
