I have no idea why my ticker says 304 except the one I see says 138.6kg rather than lb and every where I input say lb, so I put it down to some kind of weird ticker glitch and don't sweat it emoticon

Have an awesome day

I always end up feeling like there are better and faster ways to lose this weight... but the one thing I am proud of on this journey is that even though I tried different plans, the one thing I've done the whole time and lost the majority of my weight with was just counting calories. I ate whatever in moderation, tracked everything and lost weight. I never got caught up in how many carbs, cutting out certain foods and all of those things... I didn't want to lose weight in a way that I wasn't willing to stick with. Like I didn't want to go on a temporary low carb diet, or paleo or this or that, and then "go off it". I didn't want to do anything that I couldn't view as a lifestyle and that's why the calorie counting with things in moderation was the way to go for me. The way I've been losing is the same way that I'm going to maintain....but then the longer I do this I start to think "what if I just lose the rest of the weight this way (any different plan) then go back to what I was doing to maintain"... I think I am just always trying to figure out what the better way is... and I need to remember that whatever way I can stick with, that is also healthy is the best way... and there isn't just one right way to do this.

I also find it so hard to try to count calories and something else... like when I was watching my sodium I'd end up frustrated because I'd be out of sodium but still have calories or whatever... so I think trying to count calories and carbs would end up overwhelming me too. I think I need to have faith that what I am doing is working... it just stops working when I stop doing it LOL. emoticon We can do this, one day at a time! emoticon

You are so right, sooooo many people stuck in the 180's. I did see that diet break thing which sounds fabulous. Although I think I already did that the last week or so on accident LOL!! I have been starting to hope that my body has been near this weight for so long, it'll forget about the 80+ pounds I lost and it'll be like a fresh start. I can hope can't I? LOL!

I saw one girl said she ended up changing up her carbs... she did under 100 for 2 weeks and then the second 2 weeks had them up to 120 and she lost 11 pounds for the month. I am always so interested in trying certain stuff... but I never know if they are for me or not. I do love carbs LOL. Maybe that's part of my problem ha ha! :)

That is so true. Do you know what I find interesting... is the 180's really aren't that bad! I feel ALMOST normal at this weight... and that might have something to do with it. I am still overweight of course and carry a LOT of extra weight in my stomach... so I know I don't want to just say "forget it, I'm at goal", because I'm not. But I don't think I feel the urgency to lose the weight like I did at my highest weight. Odd... something else for me to think about lol. :)
