Last 10-15 Club

Options
Hi all! Is anyone interested in my group/challenge? I am needing motivation to lose my last 10-15lbs. Would love to share tips & inspiration on what works & what doesn’t..
If you’re in let’s make some brief introductions, please indicate the following.

Starting weight (heaviest) 199
Current weight 144
Goal weight 130-135
Current plan: WW & MFP (calorie counting)
Short term goals: I would like to be back to my wedding weight on my Anniversary in May. (Was 133, 1 year ago)
What worked for me back then was calorie counting plus keeping my carbs around 100-150/day plus Rebounding daily or every other day. Nothing beats the motivation of getting in your wedding gown. I can’t seem to find that motivation now. So I’m looking to buddy up with some pals here!

    I do well for two weeks, then bad for two weeks. My wedding is in less than 8 months so I'm working with the motivation of looking good the first time in my wedding gown! Would love a motivation accountability buddy.

    I used getting back into my wedding dress as a goal and did it! It was so much fun getting it out periodically and seeing how much further the zipper went compared to the previous try. It also gave my then 7 year old daughter several opportunities to try it on. The best motivational idea ever!!! I never had a goal weight, just a goal size. Best of luck!

    Hi all! & Welcome!
    Shall we do weekly weigh-ins on Tuesdays? (I hate Monday weigh ins lol... ) I weigh in daily typically, but we can just report in weekly.
    Hope everyone had a great weekend! I did not track on purpose as we went on a weekend trip. On a plus I booked over 20k steps yesterday!
    So I’m not expecting to lose, I’d be happy with no gain!
    My goal this week is to hit the rebounder 3x, and the gym with hubby 1x!
    Have a great start to your week all!

    Count me in!! Currently following WW and just added in MFP. I lost 45 on WW but as I got close to goal, my progress stalled and I've gained 5 back since Jan. Need to get it back off and lose the last few lbs to be at my personal goal weight. Hoping MFP tracking will help.

    Weekly weigh-in, I'm at 150.3. It's what I was expecting. I know I lose weight at turtle speed, so my first mini-goal is to be at 145 by April 30.

    I'm in my last 10 lb. of loss, too, although I probably won't be weighing in weekly as there is already a weigh-in group on here (Fridays: community.myfitnesspal.com/en/group/118368-weekly-weigh-in-group). But I need motivation, these last few pounds are harrrd!!

    I want to join! I’ve been hoping to lose the last 5-10 since October but the scale won’t budge! I walk or jog 3-5x week 60 minutes, get 10000 steps in and ski/bike on weekends. Gotta stop snacking on the pretzels! I’m just so HUNGRY!

    Hey, I've been dancing around the last 10-15lbs weight loss for a while and gained a bit when I lost motivation. I currently have a bit more than that to my final goal, but my temporary goal is 15lbs away.

    I have a trip across the world to see my friends and boyfriend at the end of April, and I'm hoping to get close to 140 by then :)
    Add me, I log every day and love seeing what other people eat as motivation that I'm doing well!

    I’ve been hovering between 228-231 for about a month. I haven’t changed anything. I know the formula works, so I’m hesitant to do anything differently. I’ve decided patience is the way forward. Add me if you like. (I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t frustrating as hell tho.)

    Goal weight 120
    Current plan: MFP & going to the gym 5 times a week. I'm pretty good about avoiding as much processed food as possible but I do allow a cheat now and then.

    I kicked myself into gear in late January and have lost 5 pounds gradually. I can't put myself through a huge calorie deficit because I like to eat. This is on purpose so I allow my body to adjust to food choices and smaller portions slowly enough that in the end it's normal and I can do it on my own without MFP.

    My goal is not to be a super model. I'm 5'3 and because I'm short, any excess weight shows fast. I've been 120 before and was pleased with what I could fit into and how healthy I felt.
