Default NSV today!

I have been feeling like I wasn't doing something right lately. Since Monday I have weighed exactly 216, without the scale moving daily. (It normally goes up and down by .2 each day) Anyway, I have just begun going on fast walks and slow jogs, so I couldn't figure out why I was staying the same. (Though I know healthy eating for weight loss and exercise for fitness). So, despite feeling bloated, and unmotivated today I decided to try on a pair of pants someone bought me two years ago (when I gained all this weight). For most of my life I was a size 12, and for my height I looked pretty slim. But after having my son in 2009, I blew up to 251 pounds. The pants that I was given were size 16. I have been wearing a 20-22 since 2009. Today I tried on the 16 and they were almost too big! So I did a happy dance It made my day much better.

That's great! It shows you're losing inches, and that affects how you look more than the number on the scale! How long did it take to get to 216 from 251?

Thanks everyone! I feel so much better, so I look forward to the end result! I am sure you all know the feeling!

Mountain Mamma, I started trying to lose weight last year and would lose 5-10 and gain back within a week. So, I decided to start counting calories in July of this year. I used MyFitnessPal to track what I normally ate in a day and the amount of calories was soooooo high! Sometimes I would eat fastfood for breakfast and lunch, and dinner. Two hamburgers at a time and still not feel satisfied. It was due to a lack of determination, willpower, and just plain stupid! Ha. After I realized how much I was eating, I decided to stay in between 1200-1400 calories a day. The weight has just fallen off since then. It took me 8 weeks to get to 216. I know that is extremely fast, and it scares me..but I know that I have to maintain my weight once I reach my goal. I am determined this time, and feel confident that I can do it. ESPECIALLY with the support on 3FC!
