Default Goal! 197 to 134.5

Well, I weighed in this morning at 134.5, which is just below my goal on here. My secret goal was actually 130, but I also got my body fat percentage measured with calipers today, and it came out at 18.1. I had decided to aim for 22-24%, so I'm going to listen to the people around me and decide I have lost enough weight for now. I can always lose five more pounds in a few months if I decide to do that. So......GOAL!!!! From size 14 jeans to size 4 or 6 jeans! I can run three miles in under 30 minutes! I can do all kinds of things! It's time to celebrate!

What a fabulous result. I'm impressed.

I like the idea of stabilising your weight for a while. Going down really low too fast will cause a rebound. What happens is that your body starts to rebel and sets off the hungry hormones. You can develop a ravenous appetite which you can't ignore and pretty soon you are back where you started from. So stabilise your weight here for a while. And when you start reducing again, do it slowly. And if possible small stages at a time, stabilising each new low weight for a period of time before going down further. I think you have to retrain how your body thinks of itself for the want of better words.

I have noticed this sort of scenario in myself but i have also read about it in an extended article which collected scientific research on weightloss and why people failed and why those who did succeeded. I wish i could find the article for you.

But for now treasure your achievement.

Wow! I'm impressed. I started at around the same weight, and I'd be happy to hit 134.5. Thanks for showing me that it can be done!

OMG, amazing!! What a wonderful story to start off the year. My goal is also around 130-135, so you are keeping me motivated.

How long was the journey? When did you lose the most weight? Very interested

Yay, congrats! Well done! This is very motivating to me because your start and goal weights are so similar.
