  • Trust me when I say this: NOBODY WANTS TO TAKE THIS AWAY FROM YOU!!! :-) You experienced what we like to call the WHOOSH™. You can be great for days in a row, sometimes even a couple of weeks, but you don't experience any weight loss. Then one day you wake up and... WHOOSH™! You drop a bunch of weight that you aren't…
  • Slow and steady. I'm going to keep riding this wave. I think I'm very close to my final weight goal. I'm going to start thinking in terms of what I'm doing AFTER I reach my weight goal. I have not returned to heavy lifting since I hurt my back, but I will (soon). As far as numbers go, I want to see if I can keep my lean…
  • These are the moments. Thinking something is "okay," being horrified once you actually "look." Realizing through these experiences that there's a reason why you have been gaining weight is GREAT. Because, once you know, you can decide to do something different. Change can be a slow process. You'll make old/stupid/habitual…

  • Thanks @jerier I feel the same way. It's nice to be around some like-minded people. I love this group!

  • @quiltingjaine I appreciate your fanaticism. It helps balance out all the energy trying to push me in the opposite direction. Thank you!!!

  • I didn't realize until a few minutes ago that I'm more than 50 lbs down from my heaviest weight (January 2015). When I see 190 again, my weight will be lower than it's been since high school. Life is working, and I'm just going to take another moment to thank everyone here for everything. This place has allowed me to sit…

  • @brightresolve Thank you for your kind words. The feelings are very mutual!
  • Missed you too @quiltingjaine ! Sounds like you did well on your trip. Panda is definitely off the list.

  • Every day. Some people keep a Word or Notepad document that they cut and paste. I quote my previous day's post and cut off the tags.
  • You narrowed down the moment, and that's great. The next step is figuring it if there's a specific trigger, whatever that might be. Or a habit. Or a feeling. Or a thought. The more aware you become, the more likely you will have a chance at choosing a different path the next time. Which reminds me if something I tell many…
  • I think you have a great point here. You're definitely being too hard on yourself. At some point in your experience you might even enjoy a day when your weight stays the same (when you didn't expect that to happen). You've embarked on a journey, and you're doing great. Enjoy your "streaks" (like this one) when you lose…

  • @KLM4k I just find my previous post and hit the "quote" button, then remove the quote headers.
  • @DebCountsAll Right?!?!
  • @mz144 Try my scale trick. Weigh yourself tonight, fully clothed, preferably after dinner and before you go to the bathroom. Be the heaviest you're going to be that day. Then weigh yourself as normal in the morning.
