Well, I weighed in at 145.8 this morning which is a big milestone for me. That was my original goal weight when I started all those pounds ago, lol. It's amazing that I'm here!

HOWEVER! I had the WORST binge today I've had since I started in October. It was a big event at work and there was catering and treats and stuff all over. Lots of cookies, couple of brownies, chips....ugh. Depressing. But ya know? I think I can live with a day like this happening once or twice a year. I used to eat like this all the time and not think a thing of it. I can handle an "oops" now and then. I'll be back on track tomorrow.

Congrats, everyone! KurLEQ, you look so good! Wow!

I did my 7th Couch to 25K jog this morning. I love this program! But yellow dust from China has blown into Korea and so I'm really worried my cough is turning into something worse, like bronchitis. My stamina is improving, but I'm coughing myself sick afterwords. Everyone I know is sick from this.

Yikes! The thread was hiding on the 3rd page of the forum! I went away for a little while because I took a brief jaunt back to hovering right above 150, but I'm at 148.8 today, and have gotten 140s a few times in the past week or so, so I think I'm here for good! I'm so excited. I haven't weighed less than 150 since my senior year of high school!

How is everyone doing today? 147.4 for me, but I'm pretty sure at least some of that is just lost water weight. :P

Hi everyone! I've come to join you because I've been stuck in the 140's for months and lately, I've completely lost my motivation to get out of them. Hopefully this accountability will give me the kick in the pants I need!

So I have a question for everyone. I just recently got back into the 140s after many months of being in the 150s again and I was wondering about what do you guys eat?

Should I eat more to get over the tiny plateau or eat less? It seems like whenever I eat more, I lose more weight. But going out to at at applebees and eating a digiorno for one pizza really shouldnt get me back down to 148, should it?

Lauren, I don't know about a lot of people, but I do know some people who have used calorie zig-zagging to break a plateau. Basically, you keep your average calories for the week the same but you eat 100-300 more or fewer calories each day, alternating. I know that's kind of a bad explanation-- maybe someone else can explain better.

What always helped me break through a plateau is just not giving up by staying consistent. Some people up the calories a bit; some people up their workouts. As for me, I just keep with my plan and I eventually break through it.

Today was a good day for me. I ran for 25 minutes and walked for 20 minutes. I'm 147.7 pounds today.
