Tala: Goal clothes work well for me because it lets me see that I am losing inches in a very visible way. I love the feeling of fitting into a pair of pants that I couldn't wear a month ago.

ange: I haven't heard of it, but may have to check it out. Maybe I'll pick up a few additional tips.

Snowmama: That is amazing that you are almost completely out of the 140s. I believe you when you say it is hard to lose more. You're a fraction taller than me, and I seriously doubt I will EVER get into the 130s, or that I would even want to. With my build, I don't think the 130s would look very good on me. My point is that I assume you are working on those very last few stubborn pounds and those will almost always be very slow to come off. Keep up the good work.

Ange8 What do you have going this weekend? We like your maintaining posts – we all hope to be there soon. ��

Beeps Late night snacking – that’s a great good habit goal. That was one of my first habits and it made a big difference. What’s your April goal? I’ll join you in good habits for the month.

Newlyn Sorry to hear about your health troubles! My friend just had a gallstone flare up on vacation and they scheduled him for surgery. ☹ I hear the pain is really intense and limiting. I hope you’re feeling better.

Lacerta You have done so well on your journey; your commitment is impressive. Here near the end I’m not sure where I want to end up – I’m sure it will be similar for you too. Especially with your increasing activity and body changes, it’s just hard to know until you’re at the next milestone. Thanks for the encouragement!

Tala Welcome! It’s great to see movement once you commit to losing. I would highly recommend actually tracking every calorie – you might be surprised where you are at the end of the day. And even healthy foods can be high in fat and have an impact on loss. My brother was thoughtlessly eating almonds as one of his go to snacks and couldn’t figure out why his fat/muscle ratio wasn’t changing.

Total Loss for Week Four: 1.4 lbs.

Final Days
29: 138.8

Three days in the 130s – it’s really real! I’m about 8 lbs away from my goal (I think). I’m not 100% sure where I’m going to feel most comfortable, but in my head getting back to a size 2/4 and around 130 was my plan. But it’s not set in stone. I’m a 4/6 right now and I feel pretty good. I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing and see what happens. At the current rate I’ll hit my goal sometime near summer.

I’m working on a vacation plan for mid-April and we’re going to take family photos (my daughter and I). I’ve been avoiding professional photos because of my weight and looking back I’m sad I did. Such a dumb thing to do.

Any advice on destinations? I’m looking at islands in the Caribbean or Bahamas, but would love to hear about places/trips you all have enjoyed. We still haven’t been to Australia and it’s crossed my mind more than once…

----------------------------
Total Loss for Bonus Days: +0.2
Total loss for Entire Month: -0.6

My current measurements (to the nearest .25 inch) are:
Neck: 13.75 -> 13.75
Bicep: 13.25 -> 13
Forearm: 11 -> 11
Chest: 42.25 -> 42.25
Waist: 37.25 -> 37
Belly/Hips: 44 -> 44
Thigh: 25 ->25
Calf: 16.75 -> 17

So that is within the margin of error and I showed no loss of inches this month either.

But hey, I didn't gain anything either, so that is a win and I'm counting it as such. April is going to be better.

The last half pound was mostly dehydration, I'm sure. But either way I made my goal for the month!
