Thanks for the warm welcomes, everyone! I found this kind of thread really helpful and encouraging for getting out of the 170s, so I know this will help keep me on track.

sun, you're so close! In no time flat you'll be in the 150s!

effie, I hope your next weigh-in puts you in a more secure place!

Thank you ladies!

fashinjunkie09 - I hope tomorrow goes well for you! Keep us posted!

I am so excited today! I weighed in again at 161. Talk about a boost for my confidence and motivation. Two more lbs and I am in the 150's......maybe by the end of this week. It makes me think I can do this all over again.

Hello ladies!! My mini-goal was to reach the 160's by February 1st. Todays weigh-in showed me that I reached it!! *Happy Dance*

Kirjava - I followed you on over from the 170's thread =)

Im shooting for April. But I do want to hit under 165 by March. I think if I shoot for anything lower I'll fail miserably in one month. hehe

Im 5'4 too! I think your progress is amazing.

Lilly, welcome! It looks like you are making amazing progress, I'm sure you can get to the 150's by April no problem!

sun, thanks! And keep us updated on your progress, too! 161 is so so so close!!!

Official WI this morning is 164.2 so down 6.6 lbs in 3 weeks! I am really excited about that. Not sure if I am going to make my Valentine's Day goal of 150's but I will be really close and out of here not long after if I don't.

So, does anyone WI on certain days? And what diet/exercise plan are you following? Hope you don't mind me asking but it looks like everyone is making awesome progress and it makes me curious.

I weigh pretty much every morning, but my "official" days are Mondays. I am calorie counting staying between 1,500 and 1,600 calories a day and doing a moderate 30 min workout 5 days/week. So far so good!

fashinjunkie09- That is soooo cool! 164! Yay!

To answer you question about my rountine ....I just started calorie counting(because I have a cool app on my phone) before that i just watched what I ate....I exercise about 20 minutes of bodyweight exercises and walk about 2 miles a day 6 days a week

I am waiting for my P90X to come in the mail so I can start that. I try to do something different every month so I dont get bored. I did walking in Sept...bootcamp dvd in oct and nov...body weight exercises in dec and now I added walking again Feb----P90X!~

161 this morning! I'm at about 1500cals/day, plus strength training exercises 3x a week (a TON of squats, push ups, and crunches!). Plan for Feb is to add cardio 5-6x a week.

I have 14 days to lose 4lbs to meet my Vday challenge in another forum! Come on ladies!! We can do this...

My official WI is on Mondays/Tuesdays. But I weigh in during the week to kinda see how Im doing. Otherwise I might slip up. I dont count calories though. Just try to eat smaller healthier portions more often to keep my metabolism going.

I need to start going to the gym though. Its been so busy at work the past month that I havent had a chance, but I've been running around plenty on the job

Thanks, LiLLy! I've been surprised by how much success I've had, actually. This is the most weight I've lost in one attempt. Usually I'll lose a little, blow it and gain some back, lose a little more, blow it and gain a lot back, etc. I think I've finally committed to this being a lifestyle change, rather than a temporary thing.

Ooh, I love hearing about others' fitness and diet plans! It usually gives me good ideas for things I'd like to try.

I only weigh-in on Saturdays. I've stuck with that religiously since I started in August, and the one time I broke that was last week... huge mistake! Tuesday said I'd lost nothing, and Wednesday said I'd gained 1.1lbs! I was very discouraged and felt awful. I couldn't believe it on Saturday morning when I ended up losing a little over 2lbs and ending up in the 160s. I'll never break weigh-in schedule again.

My strategy is to watch what I eat, and eat small portions. I'm not officially counting calories, but I'm eating roughly 1200 a day, maybe a touch less. I cook huge batches of food on Sundays and break it into individual containers in small portions, and freeze it for the week. I find I'm not tempted to overindulge when I have my portions set out for me. I usually end up eating the exact same thing for lunch and dinner for an entire week, but I'm only cooking stuff I like, and working hard to make sure they're balanced, so I don't feel like I'm missing out.

My day consists of breakfast (usually a big bowl of cereal or oatmeal), lunch (whatever I made on Sunday), a snack when I get home (whole wheat crackers with hummus, or yogurt, or clementines), dinner (whatever I made on Sunday), and one more snack (SmartPop, or a granola bar, or yogurt). I try not to have my last snack any later than 8pm. I'll also have a few cups of peppermint tea most evenings.

I was working out a lot in September and October, but lately I don't exercise a whole lot, except for doing some long circuits on Jillian Michael's Fitness Ultimatum 2010 game three times a week. As a teacher I'm on my feet all day, the gym in this community has only four machines, and it's negative 30 Celsius outside right now. Those are my excuses to be lazy.

I know what you mean Kirjava about losing and gaining. The last time I attempted weight loss was like in 05 when I first joined this site and I ended up losing about 15 pounds, but then I got so comfy with how I was and all the compliments that I was getting that I slipped up and gained everything back plus 10 more!

When I went to the docs for a check up and saw 187 I couldn't believe it! When I started this weight loss journey in about June i was 185 and decided to just take it slowly but surely. Not giving up...

That's excellent that you've stuck with it since June, LiLLy! Losing slowly but surely might help you to keep it off easier than losing quickly. I'm glad we're at similar weights and heights so we can share the journey together!

I've never done this well for this long before. Usually 3 months is where I max out. I've been doing this since August 17, and even over Christmas I only cheated enough to gain back a couple pounds, which I lost when I got back home.

Oh man during christmas I ate SO much! I went up north with my bf and met his family for the first time. We stayed at his moms and that womans LOVES to cook. I was very surprised that I was down a few pounds when I got back. It was a victory in itself. We did do a lot of moving around though. I even went snowboarding for the first time in my life!!

I guess what Im doing different this time around is that im not focusing on it as a "diet" but more of a eating right/excercising lifestyle change. Cause before I would diet diet diet and then give up. Didn't work out too well in my favor.

Also my bf is in the Navy and they keep him skinny! Im trying to catch up to him hahaha.... little inspirations.

Hi Ladies! I didn't make my goal of 166 by January 31st (darn TOM!), but I did lose 1.6 lbs. Less than 2 lbs away from the 50 lb mark!
