I've been dipping in and out of the 160s for half a year. I'd love to be out of them for good. I gain before and during TOM but have trouble losing it afterwards, and by the time I do I'm regaining again. Lather, rinse, repeat. The last time I lost weight was November but I've more or less plateaued for even longer.

You could try weening yourself off of sugar. This is what helped me. For drinks I quit soda cold turkey and cut back on juice almost completely. I started adding less and less sugar to my tea until eventually I could drink it plain and drink lemon water instead of lemonade.

For solid foods just try to have that one reasonably portioned sweet thing for the day if you absolutely have to have something sweet, but as a compromise you should drop some other high carb food. Like if you must eat a candy bar then you can't have bread later and vice versa, that sort of thing. Try to eat a sweet fruit over a processed food though.

You don't have to have your sugar all in one sitting. You can take that one thing and split it up to have throughout the day. You can also make your own treats instead of buying them pre-made and cut back on the amount of sugar in the recipe. When I bake I cut the sugar by half. After a while you'll start to prefer things less sweet in general. I started to notice a hint of sweetness in things like vegetables, and sugary things are so overly sweet that they don't taste as good.

Thanks, K9. South Beach Diet phase 1 is 2 weeks of eliminating all sugars, grains, starchy vegetables and fruits. The reason for this phase is to eliminate your cravings. It takes a lot of determination, but, boy, did I enjoy my first piece of fruit after the first 2 weeks!

Welcome circa83! Hope you can move down and out of the 160's this time!

Inching down slowly. Hit 167.0 this morning.

161.6 I'm starting to get comments at work about my weight loss and it feels good to have some positive feedback.

I'm adding in 160.8 because a few hours later after I went back to sleep, that's what it was

Congrats everyone and see you soon in the 150s thread!

Congrats to everyone working so hard to get out of the 160s, and to those who have gotten into the 150's!

I just made my mini goal of getting into the 150's by March, a month early! This morning the scale said 159.2. Moving on over to the 150's thread.

Good luck to all!

I've had 3 days of poor choices and the scale reflects it for sure! I'm up 3 lbs--basically back to where I started (170.6).
Weight loss is NOT linear!

rachelinala - wow! so close!

merowi2 - hope you had fun skiing yesterday! That's got to have burned lots of calories!

midnight12 - congrats on moving down to the 150s!

K9 - hope you kick that sugar monster soon and start seeing the scale move down!

165.8 this morning! I dipped down this low about a week ago, but it didn't stick. Maybe this time it will!

well, I was awol for three weeks after a car accident. I broke my wrist and was pretty banged up and I'm feeling well enough to get back on the wagon. I'm up a bit, to 167, but have decided Feb is the month that I finish with the 160s!

OMG leopard! I wondered why I had not seen your posts in a while. So sorry to hear about your car accident, but glad to know it was not a really, really bad one. Hope you mend quickly! Glad to have you back

I'm waiting until tomorrow to weigh myself. Fingers crossed. I am thinking it'll be 160 point something and hopefully by the end of the week I can cross over into the 150s. But I'd love to wake up and be 159 tomorrow morning.
