LoganandLivsMom - It looks like we've had similar paths.
I hope everyone is doing well and ready to tackle a new month on Monday.

Hello everyone!
An update I started this thread weighing in at 225.8 on February 22nd. Today was 222.4 I'll take it! LOL When I posted here the first time I thought of what weight I'd love to be on 12/31 and I chose 199 knowing doing this slowly without starving I will not see an "ideal" weight. I have made it sort of a mantra "vision 199." It's definitely doable even at a slower pace. Good luck to us all!!

Hey everyone!
March is almost over, 1/4 of the year is already over. I hope we are all working on our goals. I sure am! I am now 220...yay!! Offically 5.8 pounds since joining this thread. My goal for the year is 199, just to say 1 for once and not 2 will be amazing!
KStrong Ten pounds to goal, wow! You are right, we have had similar paths I will see you make your goal (virtually) and know I can do it too!

KStrong Thank you!! I am working on my "mini goal" of 50 pounds. Four pounds to the big 5-0! I have lost that much a couple of times over the years. Also, I have not learned to keep watching the calories and the weight always came back. If only we all learned the first time, huh? LOL

I heard that L&L's Mom. You are doing super awesome and if we both remember how we struggle maybe we'll keep it off this time!

I hope everyone is doing well!

KStrong Yes! The old doing the same thing over and over and thinking this time it will be different! Uh...no! I would lose weight (when I was younger) very fast meaning keeping my calories too low. I would eventually feel I looked pretty good and then I could eat whatever I wanted and calories didn't count. The insanity is correct!! How is it going now? I think you are about where I want to be. My weight is basically the same. I may go up half a pound and then down back and forth. I am OK with it now. I do want the 50 pound loss but not at the expense of my metabolism! What has helped me is measuring my waist and hips. Seeing them both 5 inches smaller has helped tremendously...that and the smaller clothes.

I hope everyone else is hanging in there. Summer will be here before we know it. Lets get active and burn some calories!

I totally agree about measuring. I try to do everything once a month and my hips and waist weekly.

Hi everyone!

I officially reached 50 pounds down!!My goal for the end of the year is 199 so I am 14.8 pounds away. Just reaching the 1's as the first number in my weight is a huge deal. I know for sure it's been over 20 plus years!!


KStrong I never thought of measuring my thighs, etc...when I started. I literally just measured my waist and hips. Oh well!

I do know the size on my jeans has dropped so that helps no matter what. Going from a 24 to now 20 and even some stretchy 18's somewhat has been a great motivator as well.

Congrats!

You can always start measuring now so you can see those changes going forward. Clothing is a good backup if the clothing doesn't stretch or shrink over time.

Thanks so much KStrong! Great idea on start measuring elsewhere now. By the way, are we the only two on this post? LOL Where is everyone?
After reaching 50 pounds, I stalled and went up a pound and a half. I teetered around that and now it's back to 50. I am grateful for that and will keep plugging away at it;.

KStrong I'm still around. I'm doing okay, except for my weight loss. I have been struggling since November 2020 to get out of the 160's. I hope to get there soon. I post on my first post but haven't been commenting alot. I need to do a better job with my calorie counting. I still hope to reach my GW by the end of this Year. Good Luck, Everyone!
