14 pounds down!

whalomgirlwhalomgirl Posts: 35Member Member Posts: 35Member Member
It's really amazing to me that I am losing weight! I weighed 193.5 at the beginning of July, and started using MYFITNESSPAL to monitor my calories. It seems like magic that the pounds disappeared, and i always think the scale is lying. No one has really noticed yet, but I know that I am doing a great job....because my jeans are getting loose. It's such a great feeling. There have definitely been humps, days that I have messed up or binged a little, and unsupportive people....but I really feel like i can overcome all of it. My mini goal is to reach 160 by halloween and wear something really cute to reward myself. Just wanted to share...and I hope everyone else is feeling as enpowered as i am!

    way to go! :smile:
    I was amazed at how fast the first 10lbs dropped when I first started. It was just realizing what I was eating, and starting to exercise more, but mine just seemed to disappear too. Now I am at the last 7lbs and it is going slower, but I am still losing. Keep up the good work. :smile:

    Isn't it great? Good for you for getting healthier! Just remember to stick with it when you hit a plateau. They can be frustrating. But , this DOES WORK!!!

    Good job! You and I were in the same boat! I have lost 38 pounds, and feel AMAZING. Even though it seems like no one is noticing, I know you probably do. There will come a point, when all of a sudden, LOTS of people are noticing. Keep going. Do it for you. You deserve it!!

    :smile: :smile: Thats great!! You have done a great job! I too am in 192 range and I was wondering how many calories you are eating a day and in what ration e.g lower carbs and higher protein. How much did youa loose each week? I am looking for tips from other "winners"
    Keep up the good life!
    Cheers
