Well, the holidays definitely caught up with me. I'm up almost 3 and a half pounds, which you feathers understand is a lot. I've updated my tickers to be honest and am starting back on plan immediately. All holiday goodies have been thrown out and I am going shopping for healthy staples today.

I also rejoined weight watchers, which I'm hoping is worth it. I figure if the $65 dollars keeps me motivated than it was well worth it. I was intrigued by the new plan. It's weird how almost everyone gets the same number of points. It seems like a lot to lose on, but we'll see how it goes.

I've been running more and getting back into yoga. I've had issues with eating too many carbs when I'm running, so I need the weight watchers to keep me in check!

I saw 125 today despite the three day food fest and not caring how many calories I ate. I guess it was my body's way of thanking me for all the hard work I put it the rest of the week. Looking forward to getting these five pounds out of the way relatively soon.

Became sick over holiday break at home (still feeling queasy) which meant not much exercise... BUT I did go skiing once and had a bike ride another day, so not the worst possible two weeks. Stayed relatively on-plan with eating -- proud of myself for not having more than one small cookie or equiv. a day () and lost 2 lbs. Not anywhere near out of the 120s yet, but looking forward to it! Here's to a healthy new year for all of us

I am hereby reaffirming my determination to get down to 120. And since I seem to bounce around by at least 2-3 pounds between days, that actually means getting down to ~118 in order to avoid "weight creep" up to the low-mid 120s. Wish I could claim weight loss over the holidays- not a single pound since early December. Time to reboot myself!

I FINALLY broke my plateau!! This morning I was 128.6 I've been absolutely stuck between 131-129 since late November. Hurray! It took some serious buckling down, hitting the gym, and all of that. But, to find a new low on the scale makes it all worth it. I'm so happy.

Down .6 pounds from last week. Not 6, but .6. I know you lose weight more slowly the closer you are to goal, but this is going to take a long time!

But I'm closer to 119! Still not sure what my final goal is, but glad this is my last 'decade' to get through. I definitely don't want to go below 115.

Floating around between 125-128 this week, need to get serious. I'm setting 122 as my weight goal for February 10, which is when I go to Korea.

129 today, gang! I'm finally eligible to start tracking this thread legitimately!

My Valentine's Day goal is 125, and I am DETERMINED TO GET THERE!

Hey guys!

My weight on Monday was 129.4... hoping for 118/119 by March 8th (when I leave for my last Spring Break before graduating from grad school and entering the real world!).

Mini Goals for V-day are 123/124 and amping up my cardio routine a bit! I can't wait until it is warm and I can run outside...

I haven't been in the teens since my sophomore year of high school, it will be GREAT to see that on the scale... though I will be happy with low 120s if it is accompanied by some serious tone in the thighs/butt/arms. :-)

Good luck to everyone!

I've been bouncing around
123 to 126. It's getting quite frustrating.

Good luck!

Still holding at 129. I'm doing a very specific eating plan this week and next, and I'm sure I'll see results in a few days once my body has realized what I'm doing to it. LOL

I probably won't reach my Valentine's Day goal of 125 until a few days after, however. That's making me a little bummed.

Today my Wii told me I was down to 127, and the Wii does not lie. My bathroom scale, on the other hand, tells whoppers all the time. I was very happy to be 3 pounds clean of the 130 decade. Now I feel like it is an easy slide to 125...and then 119, my happiest weight! It is not far away.

I know I can do it because I have successfully quit soda, which I NEVER thought possible. I am in awe of myself. Without that additional 600 calories a day, and without the giant sugar crashes, I am feeling great and dropping weight steadily. Hooray! I WILL be ready for my honeymoon in March!

I went rock climbing last night and this morning I ran 5 miles. I am unstoppable.

Ten pounds lost---it is official!

I'm hopping on this bandwagon...my weight has been driving me bonkers, as I'm sure you all understand. I'm 5'4" and feel my best at 120, with my "red alert" upper limit at 122. I have been at 124.5 for a few weeks and am infuriated so I'm shaking things up. Luckily I like exercise, so that's good. For the first time ever I'm trying a lo-carb approach and boy is it hard...very lo-carb. They say your body needs to be tricked and I am praying it'll be tricked into fat-burning mode...any advice is welcome!

Struggling to stay in the 120s. Something awful has happened with sugar and I feel like I'm completely losing control.
