Congrats yoyoma on staying below 130 even with your "indulgences"! I'd say that means you're firmly in the 120s.

I'm at 130.6 lbs today, but I've been here before so I don't expect to move out of the 130s in the immediate future. I've started following the workout plans in the New Rules of Lifting for Women so I hope to see some fat loss in the coming weeks due to that. Is anyone else doing that program or tried it in the past?

Congrats yoyoma! 120s locked in!!!

EHRH- So close...we have the same goals and height!

I went down again this morning, which never happens. I'm definately in a whoosh, so I'm mentally preparing myself for the long plateau ahead. Sigh. That's how it works for me, though. I started my official weight-loss journey on May 15th, and today was pretty special b/c I have lost exactly 40 pounds since then. 54 since the start of the year, but 40 since I've been actively changing my life. :-)

I am dead-tired and my hips are so sore I can barely move. I did this crazy run with my hubby Friday night, after doing Zumba that morning, and my body is NOT happy. Bleh. Back to my regular schedule!

big congratulations chickiechicks, 40lb since May is huge!! You must be getting heaps of compliments and attention!
Don't worry about the body complaining - it's good for it to suffer a bit every now and then!

I left the 130's again this morning after almost a week of un-deserved gain, so i'm being a thread-whore and hedging my bets, and posting here and in the 120's thread too!!!

I was 129.4 this morning and 130.8 last night. I'm not going to move my ticker, but I am going to count my night weight for the purposes of this board.

I'd really like 129.0 to be my high weight. I'll have to lose a few more pounds to see that happen.

I got a shock today. I weighed myself this morning, having not done so for 3/4 days. I discovered that I now weighed 126lbs.

So I'm going to be moving over to the 120s thread. Hope to see you guys there too soon.

Mane,YoYo and Ange-We'llmiss you skinny-minnies! SUPER CONGRATS!!!!!


My weight is up a smidge, but I'm still POP. But I'm tiiiiiiired. I feel like I'm coming down with something. Blah!!! Grumpy week, and my Kindergartener is surely going to drive me insane sooner than later. He is my sweet, logical kiddo. Very rule-oriented. Well now he is in Kindy and EVERYDAY tells me how much I dont' know and that, "Kids don't do that..." or "NO one wears THAT..." and "I can't put my lunch in my backpack...NOBODY EVER DOES THAT!!" I want to claw my eyes out. LOL I'm happy that he enjoys school, but he knows everything apparently. (eyeroll)

Is everyone out of the 130s! LOL I'm jealous!

Hovering back and forth between 133-134 here. I know I am at the dreaded stall, probably for a couple of weeks. I know that isn't terribly long, but I have lost pretty steadily for months except for random 2-week periods along the way. Zumba today!

I'm still here ChickieChicks! My weight is actually going in the wrong direction. I've been on plan for the last week and I started "lifting heavy" so I'm hoping it's just my muscles retaining water. I'm up about 2-2.5 lbs. How much did others gain (temporarily I hope) when starting to lift?

Congrats to you ladies who have "graduated" into the 120's! Wooo!

AFM, I'm UP 4 lbs from the end of September! We just got home from a (very indulgent) 9 day vacation, so I'm feeling bloated and gross. I hit the gym today (first time in two weeks!) and stayed on plan... hopefully I'm back down soon.

I'm getting a bit frustrated as well with my current stall/slight gain. I'm up a couple pounds, which I'm hoping is from my new weight-lifting routine but who knows. I'm staying strictly on plan for two weeks and then writing a big blog post about what I ate and all and asking for input from anyone. I think that will help break me out of a bit of a rut I'm in with my food choices.

Of course I already went off-plan on day, like, seven, but it was only in calories and not in carbs (IMO carbs matter much more, at least for me).

I hope that when I write that post you all will give me some feedback! I value the featherweight point of view.

I'm still settled/going up a bit.

Been really good with my eating with the exception of last night, when I had a very fried cheat meal for dinner (which is probably why my weight is up today, and this was the first time I'd weighed myself for almost a week due to having no access). I also started level 2 of the 30 day shred yesterday, and feeling sore from that. Will be interested to see what my weight is on Monday when I do my official weigh in again Clothes are fitting better though, so I have some confidence even though I'm frustrated at the 135 mark.

After hitting 133 on Oct. 2nd, i am finally back to 133. My scale REALLY WANTED to go to 132.5...it flickered....but sheesh.

Still truckin', but I have been bad lately about eating too many processed foods. I need to be better and I know the scale will move again.
