I can stay positive on the goals. I started this journey in January 2012, and the only goal I had was to keep seeing the scale go down until I got to 130. I was ok with the slow and steady and even took 6 months to not "diet" and just live with one eye on the scale and see if the changes I made let me maintain. I did great maintaining never flucuating more that 1lb except at TOM. Now, I feel like I am so close to goal that I just want to knock it out. I have lost (and gained) the last 35 lbs so many times since I was a freshman in high school, that it really feels like the home stretch to me. I've gone down almost 7 solid lbs in 4 weeks (I didn't even count the 4lbs I knew was water- because of that I was 179 on 7/22). So, I am not complaining, and I consider my goals to be loose- the final one is the only one that counts and if it takes me another year to get there, I am ok with that- but I don't think it will.

Tiff - go big !!! I'm actually a little more worried about the maintaining (rest of my life) phase. I think the weight will come off if I stay on plan, but once there is no plan and I don't have a downward curve on my weight loss graph, it might be harder.

Back up to 167.4 and I'm not feeling well. I have a sore throat

Ugh, I don't even want to talk about. Gained also, about to be TOM. Reminding myself that it all does back down in a couple of days, and my rings are super tight so it is definetly water. I was hoping since last month I didn't see a huge jump (I think only two pounds) that I was starting a new trend. Looks like that was a fluke and I have my normal gain 6lbs- since Saturday afternoon! Drinking water and green tea like a crazy person to flush it all out.

I gained too but it was but my own choosing by cheating this weekend on carbs. My TOM is due the end of this week so I don't plan to be back where I was until around 9/11 or so...

I will def be more on the ball since I'm visiting family for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I'm going down too. Still holding on to some TOM weight, but I should see a whoosh by the end of the week. I went to the gym last night and tried a bootcamp class on a whim. It was really fun, although I find the group classes hard because I get too distracted by the mirror activity during the cardio sets and I have two left feet and zero coordination, lol. I will do the class again, maybe once a week to change things up.

Hi everyone, so the 3 lb gain from a few days ago seems to have come back off. I was 165.8 this morning. Crazy, not sure if it'll stick, but I was happy to see it.

I'm finishing my 30 day shred this morning. Strangely I feel a little lost. It was pretty hardcore for me, not being in very good shape and I'm really proud of finishing it I think I might buy another DVD from Jullian Michaels. There is one called Ripped in 30. I guess the structure of the first one was a good fit for me.

I'm going camping for labor day so who knows what that'll bring in regard to the scales.

Having a hard time staying on track with my diet; i'm almost out of food (!), no money til the 3rd, and waiting on a care package from family out west. Granted, it's mostly highly processed, sugary stuff, but it'll hold me over for a few days. Probably bump me up few pounds, unfortunately, but I guess it's better than starving. :/

I did it. I finally cleared the 160's. I'm calling it because I weighed in at 158.0 today!! See you guys in the 150's!!!!

I know it's hard and you might feel like u are stuck in the 160's forever, I even started to feel that way, but don't give up.

Sunny DC right behind you - weighted in at 159 this morning

Getting out of the 160s was a B%$#!. Had to tweak my caloric intake and eating habits.

I'll still check in here from time to time....Turtle, Tiffkuhn and Sirius keep it up.

Still yo-yoing in the upper 160s. I had a lot of food-based celebrations in the last couple of weeks, and trying to get my head back on track for losing. I have main alot of gains at the gym though, so I am happy about that.

congrats cosmic and sunny d. Early September was definately a killer in terms of weight loss. I'm glad that I have held in the 165-166 range the past two week. Started weighing food and exercising again. Today will be three days in row, so I feel much better about myself. Hoping to see low 160s by the end of the month.
