Hey all!

I've been lurking for a while and decided to join you guys to keep me motivated. I'm so glad to finally be in the 130s! Just this morning, I hopped onto the scale expecting to read 141 but I miraculously dropped to 139.8! It's only .2 less than 140 but that "3" really made me happy. Let's hope that number doesn't spike back up...

Anyway, I'm excited to go through this journey with you all!

Congrats Jenny!! As you see I'm at 141 and hoping by the end of the week to be at 139. My goal is to lose 2 pounds a week. Hey you are in the 130s and that is something to be proud of. I'm getting excited to see that I'm getting closer and closer to my goal and if I keep with everything by mid-May I should reach my goal, right in time to show off my new figure and MAYBE have the courage to wear a bikini..

globetrotter74, thanks for the support. I'm in the same boat as you - my ultimate goal is to reach a comfortable weight by mid-May so that I can feel confident in a bikini. I also run competitively, so since official training starts in the summer, I'm trying hard to lose the weight so that I'll be faster.

Welcome, Pepino and wfonseca3017!

This morning's weigh-in was 139.4 lbs. Phew, it looks like I'm staying in the 130s for now! Unfortunately, I weighed the same yesterday, but I'm hoping it's just water retention...

Whooosh to 132.8! Obviously a lot of my first weigh-in was water, but yay!

Holding steady at 132.0. I'm going to kick up the exercise this week and see if it knocks these last 5 lbs loose.

Hi everyone!
I'm coming back after 4 months of being away!
I wasn't able to get out of the 130's, so I took a break and I am starting fresh. This is the hardest part of my challenge so far.

March 27 - 139
March 28 - 138.5

I've been at 139 for 4 days now, so I'm going to say I'm officially in the 130's!!! When I started this journey the thought that I would ever weigh less the 200 pounds was a complete fantasy - the fact that I'm in the 130's is surreal.

By the way, I will be totally cheating in this decade because I just scheduled skin removal surgery for 4/18!!

Wow, congratulations on the 100+ lb weight loss, CherryPie99!

After a few fluctuations, instead of weighing myself every day, I think I may do it every other day or just twice a week. Seeing the scale number move up is a bit frustrating, and weighing less frequently will give me a better idea of where my weight is going.

Wow CherryPie what a great story and you are an inspiration to those out there who think they can't do it.

I don't think skin removal is cheating it is necessary for you and most definitely you will go down in weight.

I'm almost there in the 130s but will wait until after TOM is gone and weigh myself next week..

Doing everything right...just waiting for the scale to show it.

CherryPie - You truly are an inspiration. That is so exciting you are going to have skin removal surgery! I wish you a quick recovery

New unofficial low this morning of 130.9. Tomorrow is my official weigh in though, so this doesn't technically count, and I kind of like to stick at the same number for a few days before I call it, but this was pretty exciting.
