    Plus, I can tell I'm in better shape. Eight-ish weeks ago I started running, and could barely run for 90 seconds. Over the weekend I ran for 20 minute straight without walking, in 85+ degree heat. Heck. Yes. That's pretty cool, too.

    You're a machine! I can WALK for 20 minutes, but I sure won't do it outside! I am from TX and I hate the heat.

    Last week's loss: 2lb!

    That means I've lost a whisker under 20lb so far. (19.9lb to be precise, every 0.1lb matters!)

    I'm 8.3lb away from "just being overweight". It's starting to feel more and more achievable!

    Hope everyone's having a good day. :)

    I lost .3lb this week. :neutral:

    Trying not to get discouraged - I stuck rigidly to 1,200 calories and deserved a bigger loss, but period weight might be masking it. I'm hoping for a better result next week...

    I thought I might end on a gain, so I suppose it's all good. Plus the 0.3 means I'm on the right side of 20lb lost to date. No need to round up. :)

    I've got 60 lbs to lose, and sure could use some nelp with accountability. This is the heaviest I have ever been, and now with the hypertension have developed early paroximal afib. Hypertension causing it, and that is what killed off my mother who ended up dying from congestive heart failure two years ago. I am not going to follow down that road anymore.

    @Iamtheoracle I'll give you a tip: a lot of people post in these forums looking for people to hold them accountable. You know what? That's not the solution.

    Losing weight is really hard. It is. To lose more than a few pounds and keep it off, you need to find your motivation, and you need that motivation to really fuel you. We all have moments in which we think 'screw it, does it really matter if I...?' and come close to relapsing into our old unhealthy habits. And whilst we sometimes give in, and that's OK, the important thing is that for the most part, we don't. To survive those moments of 'screw it', we need to have a burning motivation that is stronger than anything else.

    I'd suggest you've already found your motivation. Your heath has suffered, and you don't want to wind up like your mother. Remember that. If it helps, write down your reason for losing weight and stick it on the fridge. Whatever works for you. You just have to find a way of keeping it at the forefront of your mind.

    In all those moments when you find the journey hard, you need to focus on that motivation because it's a really powerful reason in your case, and that's what is going to see you succeed. By all means post about how you're getting on, post when you're struggling, but the accountability that is going to see you get healthier and happier is the accountability to yourself, because you know you want to lose that 60lb to stay alive.

    I wish you the absolute best of luck. I'm also losing weight for my health, and it's what keeps me going. Whenever the temptation to go over my calories is high, I take a deep breath and remember that not only am I doing this for me, and I matter, but that I'm doing this so I live longer, and that's worth more than the extra candy bar that I will regret about 30 seconds after polishing it off.

    We've got this. :)

    Keep plugging away. My weight has been up and down for the last week and a half due to my period, but today I woke up after a good sleep and the scales had finally caught up to where they should be. It's really hard to keep going when you know you've hit your goal and the scales aren't reflective of that, but if you have eaten at a deficit all week, the scales will eventually realise that. Just might not show in real time.

    Periods are the worst for messing with your head when it comes to weight loss. Rationally, you know they do crazy things to the scale, but the longer it goes on for, the harder it is to remember that.

    You will get the result you want and deserve if you keep sticking to the plan. You're doing great. Don't let the hormones win!
