    @sweeetypie1 --You're almost to the 240s! Vacations make it really hard to stay on track. My goal while on vacations or for special occasions is just to stay under my maintenance calories. My problem is that I have too many vacation/special occasion days over the summer. :(

    @mzmmh --Welcome!!

    @jeanna-- great job on the water! Hope you are feeling better--migraines are the worst.

    @cyndy-- welcome home! I also completely lost track of logging while I was in Michigan this week. Back at it today!

    @tom-- You can do it! I also need to work harder. :)

    AFM-- Spent most of the week in in SoHa, MI. So fun with lots of beach time, but I definitely wasn't eating the best foods. On the plus side, my friend and I went for a two mile walk on Thursday morning--that was in addition to all of the incidental walking--ended the day with over 16k steps. :)

    As much as I don't want to go back to work on Friday, part of me craves the stability of a regular schedule. I really wanted to be back in the 180s before returning, but I'm still firmly rooted in the mid-190s. At least it's better than the beginning of the year when I was hovering around 200. My new goal is to reach the 180s by my birthday at the end of September.

    Hi folks 🙋. I'm new to this group. I'll give a little history: Several years ago I was at my highest weight of 343. I had a hard time with stairs and pains in my hips, back, knees, heartburn everyday, and very low self esteem. I started dieting and walking, then jogging. Got down to 192 and felt GREAT! Then an emotional rollercoaster hit and I lost all motivation and fell back into the bad habits. Well, next April I will be 50. I don't want to be this heavy when I hit that milestone. I hope to be below 200 by then, with a goal weight of 165. So, here I am.

    Starting weight - 313.3 on 7/23/19
    Current weight - 300.7

    Water challenge: drinking 96oz+ daily.

    I was at my biggest I’ve ever known a few weeks ago at 274.4. This is so hard to admit. I have watching my calories for a few weeks and I am now down 8.4lbs!! My real goal is to lose enough weight for my an upcoming trip to Disney in December. I want to fit on the rides without fear!! I have a long way to go but I have to do this to be better for me!

    I’ve lost 92 lbs so far, but still have quite a bit to go. Please feel free to add me, I’m always looking for more support! Best of luck to all of you on your journey! 🙂

    Hello Everyone. I started my weight loss journey a month ago. I’ve lost 12 lbs but still have 100 to go. I really feel alone in this and to be honest I’ve never done a diet long enough to ever lose more than 20 so I’m doubting myself a lil bit. Excited to be starting over n here with everyone else. Best of luck to everyone!!

    @dustyspal -- Welcome to the thread! I'm turning 50 in about 6 weeks. :) My ultimate goal weight is somewhere around 165 as well. I made it as low as 183 a few years ago and maintained that weight for a couple of years, but a shoulder injury followed by a terrible case of bronchitis (that lasted about 10 weeks!) derailed my exercise routine and I gained back about 20 lbs. Now I'm slowly (glacially) working my way back down.

    @NurseKALM -- Welcome to the thread! I had a really hard time sharing my weight when I first joined this community. However, this is a safe place where you will find non-judgmental support.

    @JessT1299 --Wow--92 lbs. is a great accomplishment!

    @patticakeketo -- Welcome! This group is a great place to find support and encouragement to keep going when you feel like quitting. I've been posting in this thread for years, and the accountability has helped me when I'm feeling defeated by an injury or plateau. Are you doing keto? I do much better when I limit carbs and increase my protein, and I've been toying with the idea of going full keto. Just curious how you like it and if you use any particular program, app, or website.

    AFM-- My last weekend before school starts on Friday was pretty productive. Yesterday, I vacuumed out the interior of my car and shampooed the floor mats. Afterwards I mowed my lawn. Today, I cleaned out my linen closet and went to the gym. Plenty of water both days. :) I was slightly over my calorie allowance yesterday, but at least I met my protein goal. Today, I'm still 26 grams away from my goal, but I still have almost 300 calories to play with, so I'm going to try to make it.

    Hey gang.... wow... nice to have new people on the thread! Welcome and congratulations for making the effort to get healthy! It's a big step and I applaud everyone for doing this.

    AFM - We all have our ups and downs - emotionally. Currently I am on an emotional down which makes the scale want to inch up. Just can't seem to get my mojo in gear just yet. My current plan of attack is to take in ½ day at a time. Drink water, keep carbs down and keep moving. I'm great in the morning... not so much in the afternoon/evening. I restarted my current journey last September... so I feel I should use this coming Sept 1st as my next goal date. It's always good to look ahead. Wish me luck on this part of my journey. In turn, I wish you all success on your journeys! Together we can do it. Let's make progress, shall we?

    @cyndy-- I've also been struggling to stay on track. I get really motivated for a couple of days, and then a social event pops up and I use it as an excuse not to keep to my goals. We just have to keep at it--we can do this!!

    AFM-- So I know I just went to Iceland for my big 50th birthday celebration, but my sister really wants to go to Ohana Festival in CA at the end of September. I finally let her twist my arm, and we just booked our flights and VRBO today. We will be there Sept 28-30--the 30th is my actual birthday, so I guess I'm just going to keep celebrating. I'm pretty excited and am going to use this as a motivator. It's just over 6 weeks away, so if I can lose a pound a week, I will just be in the 180s for the trip. :)

    Serial starter checking in. I've seen this thread over the years but I'm not sure I ever posted in it. Was recently 'scared straight' by worrying high blood pressure symptoms, so am jumping right into a 180* lifestyle overhaul while I wait for my Dr. appt to come up.

    Probably my most dramatic beginning on this journey, but I intend for this to be the last. At some point you run out of chances, and I'm gonna try and tempt fate any further lol

  • skinnyjeanzboundskinnyjeanzbound Posts: 3,892Member Member Posts: 3,892Member Member
    @dustyspal -- Congats!! 15 lbs is awesome!!

    @RaevsReality -- Welcome!! You've got this! One reason I originally started in 2011 was high cholesterol. I was in my early 40s and already on statins. I swear they made me gain weight, though I know research on that side effect is spotty. I had gained about 50 lbs and decided enough! I went off the meds and started MFP. Lost 60 lbs. My cholesterol is still borderline high, but even on the statins it never got below 200. The only think that ever got it down to the normal range was an extremely low carb diet, but I can't sustain that. After years of monitoring me (on and off meds) my PCP has finally conceded that my high cholesterol is hereditary. As long as I keep it in the low 200s, she doesn't harass me to go back on the drugs.

    AFM -- Today was a very good day as far as food goes. I hit my protein goal and still have some calories to spare, and that was without any real exercise. Tomorrow is my last day off before school starts on Friday. Trying to begin the year with a positive attitude, so I'm not going to complain about going back to work. I may change my tune after Friday's inservice day. LOL

    I know from experience if I really stick with my calorie goal of 1500 net, I will drop weight, so my vow is to make sure that I do that. If I want to indulge in a drink or lunch out with friends, I need to make it fit my calories for the day. Friday will be the first real test, as I know we will all go out for lunch and drinks after work. They usually provide breakfast, but it's often all danishes and bagels, so I will bring a hard boiled egg and greek yogurt in case there are no healthy options. That way I don't have to worry as much about where we go for lunch, and I can enjoy a guilt free vodka and soda. :)

    @janae-- Welcome, and congrats to getting off to a great start!

    AFM-- I'm on day two toward my short-term goal of being 6 lbs down before my Cali trip on Sept. 28th. Met my protein goal and under calorie goal again. Currently working on 16 additional ounces of water to meet my 80 ounce daily goal.

    My plan for tomorrow is to bring some healthy snacks (hard-boiled egg, greek yogurt, protein bar) to get me through inservice. Then, I will pick something healthy at lunch so I can enjoy a beverage. :)
