Congrats Amazing Job - Keep up the great work healthy girl!

While it's true that yours and my current weight would be high to some people who cares!! Seriously! If you're anything like me living for so long in an obese body 226 must feel GREAT to you. I know while I'd like to lose more weight (and will) I could be fairly happy even at 200lbs if that's all I could do. People who've never been obese have no clue on how hard it can be and what an amazing freedom it is to get rid of the bulk of that burdon! Make you a new person doesn't it?

Rock on cf!

I agree with you that only I can change my self and no one else can. I have to be accountable for myself.

I just recently read your story after doing a Google search on how to lose 150 lbs. I weigh 280 give or take. I was a thin child. Like you, always active. I was underweight, if anything. I started to gain weight in my mid 20's. 10+ years ago I went to WW and lost 50 lbs in a year. At that time tho, I only weighed 254 at my highest and got down to 200.4. I look fabulous weighing 200 lbs. But I want to be smaller than that. I started eating crap again and thinking I was hot **** because I had lost the weight. But, slowly I began to gain all the weight back. I hate running in to people I know or going to parties where I know I will see people I know or friends of my husband. I cannot stand to have my picture taken now when I used to love it. I was a ham. My hubby is great and supportive as all get out but he wants me to lose weight. But he also knows how hard it is. I think it is a struggle for us ladies and I think it will be our whole lives. Like an alcoholic or drug addict, it will be something we will be a struggle with on a daily basis.

Awesome and inspiring story-- thanks so much for sharing with us. You might have put off sharing such a nice story for one reason or another (such as took a while to type etc) but you accepted NO MORE EXCUSES and put fingers to keyboard-- you are wonderful

Default Help

Hi,

I started my weight loss journey about 2 months ago. I work out everyday and I'm doing less than 1600 calories a day. I'll also fast intermittently and have only twice let myself have something I know I shouldn't (a taco salad and 2 cracker barrel biscuits). My diet consists of boiled eggs, peanut butter, a bagel, Cesar salad, lots of roasted veggies using olive oil, healthy choice TV dinners, and slim fast. I'll occasionally eat chicken or steak, roasted. I also eat whole grain bread, drink roughly 64 ounces of water a day, and some diet green tea.

I'm losing weight and I'm all in mentally and physically. I work out everyday. This includes walking 3.74 kilometers, weight lifting, planks, crunches, you name it, alternating days. I've lost about 40 pounds but I have 140 more to go.

What I need help with is I weigh myself often and it keeps fluctuating. I can't seem to get below 290 and I'm struggling with the belly fat. Any suggestions on how to step up my game? I want to be down to at least 200 in the next 12 months, earlier if possible.
