Just hit target weight!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everybody! Just hit my target weight today. Started off at 183 pounds on 01 Jan and am down to 149. (My goal was 150 and that seemed an impossibly optimistic dream then). I dont even want to eat rubbish as it would have to be logged in MFP - I thought I'd have a blow out when I got here but really dont want to put any junk in any more... (probably a contradtion vis a vis my diary but at least no takeaways, fries, or fast food at all this year - I have developed a soft spot for low cal choc mousse and snack-a-jacks tho ;-)

I'm greedy and have just reset target to 145 will post the befores and afters pics when i get there - 6 pack weight i think. In the meantime, am in week 5 column 3 of the 6 week 100 push up challenge ( http://www.hundredpushups.com/ ) and did 70 perfect pushups yesteday in the gym, took a 1 minute rest and cranked out another 50. Think I'm gonna do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED i've never done any since uni.

If anyone wants to get a bit stronger and tone without spending a penny on expensive equipment then I highly recommend the challenge - it caters for everyone as there are different training paths depending on your initial test and every 2 weeks you retest). Even if you struggle with 10 dont sweat it, you build up at your own rate and can redo weeks if u like.

Anyway guys, hang in there! I've loved reading everyones stories and even the struggles are problems shared. Thanks for the inspiration and support.

    Thanks for the information. I'm going to start the push ups thing today. I really need the squats but not sure that would go well with my running. I think I'll start those after my 5 K.

    Excellent job. soon you will get to eat more for maintenance, which after dieting for a while can be difficult. Good luck

    Wow, that's awesome! I started at 180 on January 1st and I'm only down to 164. IMPRESSIVE. :) BUT, men do lose weight faster/easier. :P
