I have decided to change my page and plan. I am going to spend the remainder of this year learning how to maintain 160 lbs. When 2008 starts I will then begin losing the remaining 38 pounds that would bring me to my goal of 122lbs.

I was really hoping to lose 15 more pounds before trying to maintain but..............................I have been feeling overwhelmed which is causing me to binge and I'm hoping this decision will help me to not sabotosh myself yet again.

    When I lost 100 & decided to maintain before losing the last 30, I ended up GAINING! Be really careful to maintain the current lifestyle. Please please please do as I say, not as I did! I'm still cleaning up that damage

    That is a good plan! If you can maintain over the Holidays that is a great accomplishment! It's as good as losing when it isn't the holidays!

    I marvel at how you take control of yourself and know when to stop and smell the roses. Great plan!

    That is an excellent idea. Maintaining is probably going to be the hardest thing. Good luck.

    Excellent plan!!! You definitely want to make this the LAST time you loose weight. Better to take it slow and make sure it sticks forever.

    I think that's a very good idea and something that all of us are going to have to try at some point, we're all gonna have to learn how to maintain. Keep us posted on what you learn along the way, it may help us when we get to that stage. I wish you the very best! ...... Hugs, Kelly

    What a great plan! I am so impressed with how you're approaching your weight loss.

    Yes and I too have done that! I lost 115 pounds kept it off for a year or so and then gained 130 back! So hopefully this will keep me from doing that too myself again.

Thanks for understanding,

    I think that this is a very smart thing to do. If you are overwhelmed at this point it is good to stand back and get some perspective; the last thing you would want to do is undo your hard work. I sadly speak from experience having lost 60-70lbs several times only to gain it back. Good luck!

I'm back....................I got back last night and this morning I got up to workout and weighed myself out of curiousity and WOW one week of eating what ever and not exersizing really hurts!

The scale says I'm up 9.5 pounds!!!!!! Dont worry I'm not stressed about it, I'm going to work really hard for the next 6 days to get myself even with before I left and then I will continue working on weight loss.

Happy to be back!

    I know it's not Fat but, know I'm having trouble getting back on track and I dont want it to turn into Fat. Thanks for the Comments everyone!

    Did you eat lots of salt on vacation? I seriously doubt you gained that much fat! I'm betting you are retaining a ton of water. That should come back off quickly. Good for you for not freaking out!!!! Just get on track and you know what to do!

    Biggest congratulations to you. You must be so proud of your accomplishment and all the knowledge and health you have gained. I just admire your tenacity so much. Get that 15 off and then remember all you've learned and keep it off so you won't have to go through this again. Again, from the deepest place in my heart, congratulations on your hard work!!!!!!!

My Motivation

Thursday, October 18, 2007

My motivations when I started and made my poster was as follows:

I want to not feel embarrassed around my childrens friends at Birthday partys, school activitiys ect.....

I want to feel good on my Birthday's and my Husbands Birthdays to be able to go out and feel good in my clothes.

I want to be more active with my 3 dogs!

I want to get family photos.

Feel HOT during the summer and to be able to buy and wear new clothes (tank tops) without being embarrassed.

I wanted to fit out the back sliding door so that I could hang out in our back yard.
