I've been going to Art of the Catwalk [fitness studio in Tallahassee] for about two months now, and I am finally feeling better about this plateau situation. After three weeks at Catwalk, I finally broke 160 and went to 159. Now this morning my scale reads 162, but I've learned that sore muscles=water weight retention, and after all the work I've been doing, my muscles are definitely sore! In order to depend less on the scale, I started measuring myself again...sure enough, since starting Catwalk I've lost 1/2 inch off my hips and waist! Considering I hadn't lost any inches since October and this happened after only a couple weeks at Catwalk, I'm stoked.
My energy levels are up, and since most of my fitness classes are dance-style I don't really think of it as dragging myself to the gym. For the past two weeks I've been going to 5 classes a week.
No worries guys, I updated my fitness tracker so that I am still eating the proper amount of food =]
I'm really excited to see where my body is in another couples weeks, and don't worry, I'll keep you guys posted!!

So 50 lbs later, I am generally happy with my new body and my new life style. I haven't had a chicken finger in over a year [i used to eat them several times a week!]
I drink water and tea instead of soda, and I exercise regularly.
However, it's been six months since I lost weight. I am ten lbs away from my ultimate goal, and I can't seem to get to it.
I rarely overeat, but after a horrific semester both educationally and emotionally, I went home for christmas break and spent a month being lazy and eating all the holiday grub. I put on 7 lbs.
Coming back to Tallahassee I immediately started tracking my food again and have dropped those winter lbs, but that leaves me around my stagnant 160.
I'm getting desperate. To be so close to my goal and not get even a lb closer is disheartening.
I'm trying to be proactive instead of simply throwing in the towel. I am incorporating more fresh veggies in my diet, and eliminated icecream from my diet completely. I am still tracking everything I eat, and I got a membership to a dance fitness gym and have started taking 2 classes a week.
I really don't want to use supplements to lose the weight, but I'm not sure if i can stand waiting much more =[

So, the fruits of my labors finally seem to be paying off!
The scale is steadily staying on 192 lbs now!
Which means two super exciting things:
My BMI is back in the 20s
This is the best weight I've had since the fall!
I've also bumped my cardio up to about 6 days out of the week, and I'm planning on jogging more and more regularly. I eat crazy better now, and I've discovered a love for cooking, shopping, and going to the fruit market.
I thought all of this was grand, and then while I was packing I tried on two pairs of shorts that I hadn't been able to fit in months....
they're tight, but they definitely fit!

I've never weighed this much my entire life. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong before, but after a week on this program it is clear to me. Almost every meal I had included some sort of fried item, and on top of that I stopped going to the gym completely. While I was back home I looked at old pictures of myself, in some of them I weighed about 160. Ironically, back then I used to think I was terribly overweight, and now 160 is my goal weight.
I was feeling good about losing my first ten pounds, but then last night my last pair of jeans [that still fit] were ripped open when I gracefully stumbled over myself. So now here I am, without a decent pair of pants. There's at least six pairs of jeans in my closet but I can no longer fit in any of them. It's such a small crisis, but even though I've lost 10 lbs the lack of fitting clothing makes me feel like I just gained 30.
