april 25 - 240.6 - 239.6 at 1st weigh in 2 seconds later 240.6?????what the heck, on well still lower- BMI 37.6
april 27 - 239.6 - yes two days under 240 238.6 on sat, fluctuations are due to weighing in too often, but i can't help it!!!!
april 28 - 237.4 - 2 pounds from 50 lost!!!
april 29 - 236.4 - lost another pound(started six word diet yesterday - not easy eating 100 cal every 90 minutes during reciatl week, but i'm working it out - only paln to do six word diet for a few days to see if it works, don't want to plateau - ONLY 1 POUND FROM 50 lost!!!!!!!!)
april 30 - 235.6 - I DID IT 50 POUNDS!!!!!!!! can hardly believe it, this is fantastic, and two weeks ahead of schedule, we'll see how far i get by may 12th, i know i will level out, cann ot continue to lose a pound a day, anomally i know but i'm still super phscyed!!! anyway pressing on now only 50 pounds from original goal and 70 or 80 till final GW(we'll see how 165 or 155 look, not totally sure either one is attainable or maintainable but now i do believe that everything is possible thanks to sparkpeople!)
may - 235 and stoll holding been here for 6 days have not budged - tom came to visit, also we had family in town, recital stress, and a birthday cake for my baby, but i also ran 3 miles on thursday, and 4 miles non stop today, stayed in the calorie range but ate a lot of crap, feeling run down and tired, but still truckin along, hope when TOM is gone i will lose some pounds - definetly feeling bloated and swollen, so maybe that's why the HOLDING pattern?
may - 12 (GOAL 235) - actual - 235.2 - 2 weeks of maintaining with my sister in town, recital week and traveling to denver eating late at night, gin and tonic, red wine nightly and rich yummy food in smaller protions...also worked out every day on vacation - so not bad...kicking back into gear immediatly!
May 17 - still 235 need to start watching portions more carefully and get back to eating every three hours having family in town and deveating from schedule has really been a problem...do not want...will not backslide have to remain in control...trying to eat like everyone else does not work for me...nedd to remember MYTIMENOW!!!!
June 4 - FINALLY 229, i am officially under 230, have been losing a little bit over the last few days, plateau...family...travel finally eased up and i am getting back to a good routine...need to try harder to stay on track as summer continues...wedding is in @5 weeks, want to lose another 15- 20 pounds by july 15, am going to bust a#% to get there, FINALLY success after over a month of sitting at 235. WO HOO!!!!!!
june - 16 (GOAL 225) - actual - IF gw will be at 1/2 way
Did not make it (233 at weigh-in, have been fluctuating between 227 and 233 for about two weeks, need to work the plan better and switch up the program i am definetly in a plataeu....YES FREAKING OUT 1st goal missed but not giving in...going to fight harder....also have added a lot more weight training so trying to realize that affects the weight, clothes are getting bigger so i am making progress in the right direction
June 23 - 229 going down
june 24 227.4 - (9 am weigh in) finally getting somewhere
june 25 227 - I think it may stick under 230!!!!!!
june 28 - 226.6 - weighed way late at 9 am usually weigh at 6:30 so i may actually be at mid june goal 225, going to keep pushing, really want to make the 215 goal by wedding...had actually hoped to surpass the goal originally, maybe 210 or 200, but that was unrealistic, and i hit a MAJOR plateau almost two months now with NO SIGNIFICANT lose, but i am getting smaller, more and more people are starting to comment that i look great and have lots a ton of weight...nobody noticed before, and my clothes are definetly getting roomier, even the 17 junior shorts fit without a muffin top.
july (GOAL 215) -223 actual - went to calfornia for a month, worked out hard, te well but at bad times, splurged alot but ate better foods at smaller protions had a great vacation, but still in major plateau, trying new exercise to jump start the loss, gaining muscle, still trying to budge the scale
august (GOAL 205) - 226 - actual - still working out, need to reign in the eating, get back to 5-6 small meals not 3 with no snacks in betwwen, adjsuting to new smaller me, trying to be kind to myself!
sept (GOAL 195) - actual
oct (GOAL 185) - actual (original goal, but discovered BMI still out of healthy range, so redid my GW, we'll see haven't been this weight since 1st year of college)
nov (GOAL 175) - actual
dec (GOAL 165) _ actual (weight when I met LEE, and I had just lost 30 pounds on Starvation diet when we started dating, don't even konw if this is actually possible but i'm gonna give it all I have....this is still 30 pounds heavier than my supposed "IDEAL WEIGHTof 135, please....like that could even be possible, i was 155 when i was 14 and in fantastic shape i cannot imagine i could or will ever weigh 135, i don't think that would even be attainable for my body shape and style, but only time will tell what 165 looks and feels like, maybe i will have to reasses my GW...frankly i doubt it)
feb - my birthday - goal day hopefully 165 or close!!!!!
this is assuming 10 pounds a month lost, probably will be slower but i was hoping that with increase in cardio, and maintaining correct intake I would be able to acheive 2-3 lbs a week, will see, I got close from march to april and that is when I just started walking and was doing about 2-3 miles, now i'm up to 7.2 plus added band exercises.

I was reading your page, are you still eating less than 1500 calories a day? If so, that is not good and is probably why you're not losing the weight like you want. I know for a fact if you're 226lbs that you need more than 1500 cals per day. I would stick with 1500-1700.
Freedieting.com is a good website to check out. Click on their calorie calculator, fill in the info accordingly, and let it give you a range (similar to SPs). You can also get a nutrient breakdown once you've figured out how many calories you want to stick with.
Seriously though, I'd stick to 1500-1700 per day. Just a fair warning, in case no one has ever mentioned this to you, the more exercise you do, the more you have to eat!
