Breaking out of the 120's! Anyone else?
The 20-Somethings section has a bunch of support threads for those who are getting out of the 200's, 150's, etc, but since most of us who are at lower weights are either short girls or close to reaching goal, I thought I'd open this one up here. So... is anyone else trying to get out of the 120's?

Hi Bama girl, I broke the 120's a couple of months ago but it took me a while to do that. Checking my weight loss log today I noticed that I started the year at approx 135, today I am at 115.5. It took me around 6 monhs to loose those 20 pounds. I pushing to go down to 110 now but I feel pretty good at this weight...
I started the C25K program a week ago, trying to get some type of workout that I can enjoy as well a reasonable amount of calories (I am so bad with the strengh training..:()

Good luck with your final push!!!

I'll be joining you all after my baby is born! My prepregnancy weight was 129, I'm currently at 132 at 19 weeks. Wish me luck! My ultimate goal would be about 115 lbs.

Aw, awesome! Good luck with your pregnancy!

Well, aloha! I think this is a great idea for us short-er feathers.

I'm at 123 at the mo. Got down to 121.4 in May. Soo close. This was during exams so there was no going out for dinner/drinks. Which is why I crept up in June/July.

Also, while I was at university, I had a gym membership for 40 a year. Now that I am back in London it's (at least) 40 a month. Grrr. Getting a bit bummed out because I loved my little exercise.

But I found that I can go for free swimming at the community pool, because I am currently unemployed. Has anyone found swimming helpful in the quest for weight loss? I've heard it is very good for toning.

Also I start an internship in a couple of weeks, so I think that not being available for drinks every night/constant snacking, should maybe bring me down in weight a bit.

My 'goal' is 120, but for the purpose of this I'll say 119 ;)

Thank you for starting this thread! I'm generally more of a lurker but I'm plateaued around 122 right now and would love to break out of the 120s ASAP. I've lost about 20 lbs so far and I've noticed the lighter I get the harder it is to shed the pounds!

The problem is, I'm training for the cross country season at college which starts in the beginning of september so I'm trying to balance eating enough to have the energy to train and losing weight. Doing okay so far, but I'd love to speed things up a little bit. Might add a few extra miles to my run today....we'll see.

I WISH I was breaking out of the 120's :) My dream/ goal weight is 118!

bama girl 07-27-2010 01:11 PM

Weighed in at 126.4 this morning... I'm so ready to see that magical 120 number!

How's everyone doing today?

The Wii Fit always tells me that 119 is my ideal weight. But getting there seems so impossible! It's sort of an ultimate goal for me, but I'm not sure I can actually reach it.

Kellost, anyone who has managed to lose 80 pounds can do anything she sets her mind to. I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

Agreed! I'm so impressed with your loss, and you should be proud of yourself! :)

From the looks of your ticker, 119's only 6 pounds away! I know how you feel about it seeming impossible, though. I cannot imagine myself below 120... but it's a healthy weight for me. It's kind of surreal.

kellost 07-28-2010 12:16 PM

Thanks, guys! I actually had to adjust the old ticker upward, because I caused some damage on my recent vacation. LOL. But, maybe I can be out of the 120's by Thanksgiving or Christmas? That might be a sort of realistic goal.

120.4 this morning....ugh so close

dilynnlew 07-28-2010 03:56 PM

I had lost 40 pounds and was maintaining at 115 from last October thru April of this year. THen I started gaining lit bits at a time, 117, 118, 119, and now, this summer, while off work from school I have been hovering in the 120-124 zone.
I weighed in at 123 yesterday AM. Would love, love, love to get back down to 115!!! It seems like the impossible dream right now!

caribbeangirl02 07-28-2010 05:35 PM

dilynnlew, I truly believe that if you did before you can do it again. Perhaps it would be a good idea to take in another type of exercise routine (e.g. biking, jogging, swimming) whatever you might enjoy.
It might help you shake up your metabolism as well as give you a new challenge,as well as to make your weight loss less boring!!

Good luck,

Caribbean Girl
