1/28 - 199.4 <- Ugh, why!
Welcome to the thread! You can do it. What is your lifestyle change?

DrivenByAmbition,
Thanks for your encouragement! I'm really disappointed in my lack of loss the past few days.

I am counting calories (1300ish calories), cutting out alcohol and coffee, and running 4 times a week.

1/27 - 199.4
1/28 - 199.4
1/29 - 199.4 <- Maybe the scale is stuck LOL

Maybe shock your body by eating some more calories on the days you run. Not by much, start with 100. In order for me to lose when I consistently exercise, I have to eat back part of the calories I burn. Weird I know, I discovered that when I lost my weight on weight watchers.

However, I determined I couldn't commit to WW the rest of me life and gained some weight back, but not all thankfully. So now I'm just choosing to eat at home and eat smaller portions. I am also gluten free.

That's a good idea! I'll try that! I'm also going to try and drink more water on the days I run because I do notice a lot of swelling in my fingers when I run and the morning after.

There's also good new on the scale front!

1/27 - 199.4
1/28 - 199.4
1/29 - 199.4
1/30 - 198.6 <- Not at lot but something!

I'm really hoping that I don't sabotage myself this weekend; I usually binge on weekends so I'm going to try really hard to prevent that!

I have been bouncing between 151.8 and 150.6 for about 2 weeks. I could cry.

Hello everyone. Hope all is doing well. I've been having a health concern and while it hasn't hurt my weight loss, I am emotionally drained. I want answers and am impatient. Prayers needed friends. Thanks.

DrivenByAmbition - Wishing you the best and I hope you get some answers soon.

As of today I can more officially post in this thread. Less than 30 pounds to go until my (initial) goal weight! Seems crazy that I've already lost over 50 pounds, and yet every pound I lose now seems to have much more of a change to my physical appearance.

It feels really good to be wrapping up my 20s in the best health of my life.

I have weighed in at exactly 175 the past 2 days. I have definitely lost momentum on my journey of the final 20, but I have not lost faith in myself, thankfully. Had some health scares which have really made me wake up and realize I need to be more aware of my health and do everything in my power to keep my weight down. 12 lbs seems so far away, but I am worth it.

Me, too! In December. We are also really close in weight! You ARE worth it and you can keep it up. But there's also nothing wrong with taking a maintenance break if you need to.

I keep seeing this thread pop up in my subscription list and I keep forgetting I actually do have 20-something pounds left until my goal Close to 30 than 20, but it feels a lot more tangible than when I started that's for sure.

Hello all! I'm also joining in a little late! I read through the thread and it all looks like you've made great progress since December.

I have about 20-25 pounds to lose to my goal weight (my ultimate goal is really just a healthy BMI), as my husband and I plan to try to conceive this summer. We got married last year in August, and since then I have let me eating habits REALLY slip! I'm looking for some accountability, so I've joined the 3FC community.

I am following the IP protocol. I have lost about 5 pounds so far. I am looking forward to getting back to my Beacbody workouts and running this summer (after I get to later phases of IP)!
