Mine is probably around 145. I've weighed less than that before but for the most part i've had a hard time getting below 150. I don't even want to dream of getting to 135 (the lowest i've ever weighed is 138.5) because i've just always thought of that as "impossible." But maybe it is possible. I just have to stick to a diet plan for longer, instead of giving up every time.

I'm glad I'm not the only one.

My body wants to be at 148. My brain wants to be at 130. When I get to 140 my body stops losing, then I give up.

Yes, I have these thoughts! My goal weight is 165 just because I remember being 164 when I was in my late teens. I also remember being 150, and also 140, so I know it can be done, but 164 was the lowest that I want to remember for some reason...it's almost as if 140 or 150 is just way too unattainable...even though I have been there before. I, too, am also scared that once I hit 169.9 my mind is going to say "ok, you are almost at your goal, so your metabolism is going to slow down now and it is going to be torture to lose the last few pounds toward your goal." I am hoping to plow through to the 165 goal and then see what happens from there...hopefully it keeps going down!

Thank you for starting this thread! It really got me thinking. Maybe there really is no reason i can't get to 135. Maybe if i continue to work hard and be patient for more than my usual 1-2 months on a diet, i can actually reach that. I am hopeful!

I seem to be having a mental block in the mid way between each decade, but just have to keep remembering that once upon a time I was 248 lbs and I never thought I could see a 1 starting my weight, but I did.
195 I didn't think i'd see the 80's but I did, it keeps going like that . . . so yeah, why can't I see that 145? I can, just have to keep remembering how far i've already come and that I know I can handle this.

So can you

Mine was 200 - I freaked out, even though I told myself not to. I was stuck on one sideof it, then the other, then had a slight regain, and now I am back under control and at 198.0 as of this morning. But my brain and heart had major issues with the number and I still don't know why. I just have to decide this wasn't where I wanted to stay and commit to a different course of action.

I am approaching my weight loss block as well. Which is 230. I know it's really high number considering the amount of weight I need to loose. I've been successful before loosing weight, got to within 10 lbs of my goal, but that was almost 10 years ago. I had gained a tremendous amount of weight due to some medications, and ever since I had my daughter, I've never been able to get below 230.

The good news for me though is that this time should be a little different. I was finally diagnosed with hypothyroid and while my meds aren't correct yet, just knowing that it's not all in my head.. that the hypo has been seriously contributing to my weight struggle has helped me be more positive and believing that Yes.. I can get below 230. And you all will be the first to know...hopefully sometime this month!

As a side note, I know what you mean glamourgirl about never having been a healthy weight. My current goal is 170 only because I have no idea what my goal should be. I do have a larger frame, and a crazy long torso, looking at weight charts that say I should be 130 seems ridiculous for me. I don't really remember what I looked like when I had gotten down to 180 (I don't like mirrors and have very few) but my mom says I looked fabulous. So I'm starting there. And when I get there..... and I will get there.... I will reassess and take it from there.

The lowest weight I thought I could maintain was 150. I weighed about 125 when I graduated from high school. After college I weighed 150, and it looked ok on me. Then after 3 large babies and eating whatever I wanted, I ballooned up to 235. Numerous times I lost weight, and each time I could get as low as 150, but then I would give up and go back to my old ways of doing things.

Honestly, until this time, I have never given it an honest chance when I got to 150. I mentally told myself that was as low as I could go. I even remember here on the boards saying that probably when I got to 150, that would be goal, and I would start maintenance. When I got to 150 this time, I knew I still had a ways to go.

Since this is not a diet for me, but truly a lifestyle change, there is no time limit on it. It takes as long as it takes. Period. I may never get to 129, and that's fine. I am actually good with how I look and feel now. However, I am a runner and for optimum running, the less fat, the better. I have every confidence, this time, that if I want to get to 129, I can. Without starving, without killing myself with exercise. My body will let me know when I should settle into a certain weight.

Don't get stuck in the old traps that have allowed you to regain the weight in the past. Tell yourself a different story. Don't say "I can't get lower than 160". Say I CAN get to whatever weight I choose, and tell yourself that every day. Make that your new mantra.

OMG. I totally did not read any farther then the first post because THIS IS SO ME!

160 is my mental weight.

I started at 215, got to 160 - gained a bunch back.
Got to 160 again. Gain a bunch back.
I can't even tell you how many times this has happened since I start in 2006 - probably AT LEAST 3-4!

Around this time last year I got to 159 - see ticker over there on the left. And guess what, right now I weigh 188.

It is beyond frustrating. Happy to see I am not alone. Every time I think, this is it, gonna get below 160 and then hello gain back 20 pounds. ugh.

I should say 160 was around my main weight for a long time before getting fatter and finally trying to lose weight.

Well, I have a mental block on a size - size 10. It's the smallest size I ever was in high school - and it's the size I am now. Everything below that just seems...I don't know, unbelievable. I have never, ever been in an adult/8 pair of jeans.

I've let myself coast in size 10 this semester. I could feel the mental block. I intend to get over the hump and into single digits this summer.

I went ahead and ordered some size 8 jeans. I think having them in my house might help me to get there!
