S/C/G: Restart: 154/145/130

Default

This thread is perfect for me! Weighed in at 142.6 this morning and hoping to be out of the 140's by the end of the month!

As for ultimate goal, that is a toughy. I read what you posted, Emma, earlier about not really knowing what your end goal is and I am the same way. Ideally, 125. Realistic? Prob not. I am honestly happy in the 135 range, but I'd like to get to 130 to give myself some wiggle room. But, I also dont want to get to 130 then go overboard and think I can eat whatever. It is definitely a juggling act.

Here's to seeing the 130's sooner than later!

Hi - I've been away from the board for a while now. Mostly because I'm thoroughly frustrated. I just bounce around from 142 to 146. A new month is here and I haven't made any progress.

I'm getting Beck Diet Solution from the library. It shouldn't take long. Anyone else familiar with it?

So - just wanted to say hi to everyone!!!

Hi all!

I'm more than ready to kiss the 140s goodbye....one last time!

Weighed in this morning at 145. In a couple weeks, I could be 130-something. Must stay away from all sweet temptations and consistently work out.

We have a little 5'6", 145-pound club going here.
I weighed at 146 today but I didn't weigh first thing. I have been holding at 145 for many days now. Time to start moving down!

I committed to losing 5 pounds this month, but really I want to see 139.X. There is something psychologically so freeing about "being in the 130s". I'm not as optimistic (for myself) that I can be in the 130s in a couple of weeks. I have changed my set weight such that I tend to drift to the high 140s/low 150s when left to my own devices It takes me so long to lose weight.

But I am optimistic that once I ever get back in the 130s that I can maintain there because I have developed much more consciousness about healthy habits.

Crimzon, I the Beck Diet Solution! It is the only way I managed to get back into the 130s twice in the last few years. I bounced back up due to severely bad habits. If I had stuck to Beck I think I could have reined it in before I binged my way up to nearly 155 pounds.

Here's to the summer of kicking the 140's butt

I weighed 143.8 or 143.2 pounds today, depending on which scale reading I take. Of course I like the lower one better but this is just water fluctuation and will probably bounce up tomorrow.

The end of the 140s is in sight... hopefully by the end of this month!

I wish I was better at enjoying each victory. I was so happy to hit 149 after so long in the 150s but already I have forgotten that feeling ... 142 pounds is a cutoff for me, the point I gained up to when I first started gaining weight 8 years ago. Anything above that is just horrifying to me (you'd think I'd be used to it after EIGHT years but nope, still horrifying).

I remember being ecstatic last couple of times I hit 139 pounds. But that quickly diminishes and becomes the slow, slow slooooooow slog to try to get to the lower 130s. I am going to try to appreciate each loss more on this current downward journey.

Hi All,
I'm new here. Excited to have found this group.
I weighed in at 143.6 this morning and want to be out of the 140's by mid June.
Fingers crossed.

Blondi, I'm a member of Orange Theory Fitness as well!

Love the program, but hate the lack of movement on the scale. Been going there since April '14. Hurt my hip muscles a bit, so in Physical therapy right now and taking it easy. I will go back, but once I reach goal weight.

Have you been able to lose weight on their program? I didn't, but got toned quite a bit. Would really like to be slimmer/ less bulkier though.

Yep, looks like we have a similar struggle! I'm never happy in the 140s cause it's not the 130s! It's such a weird mental game.

Granted I've gained a bunch of weight in different relationships where I got a little too comfortable. Soon as I decide to get back on track, the race to the 130s begins. It's crazy...I may be insane...but it's always the same drama! Here's to hoping this is the very last time I ride this emotional rollercoaster!

Weighing in tomorrow morning. Please scale gods be kind.
