  • 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!
  • That.Is. AWESOME!!! Watch out for Secret Swan!

  • Awesome work!!!
  • Congrats!
  • That is wonderful! Congrats!
  • Good job! Congrats
  • Congratulations! Isn't it wonderful to not only be lighter, but be able to do more and feel better?
  • Congratulations! good job!
  • 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.
  • Congratulations! That's wonderful!
  • Congrats, nice work!
  • 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.
