I can't believe it! After gaining almost 7 lbs. over the holidays & working my butt off (literally) to lose it again, it was within reach to be able to be out of the 200's by my birthday this Tuesday. Sunday mornings are my "official" weigh in time & whatever it says on Sunday morning is what I add to my tracker. I have been so excited to be going on vacation next week, laying on a nice sunny beach in January & being almost 40 lbs. lighter. I was even more excited when I stepped on the scale a few times during this week & I was under 200 lbs....I was going to do it....I was going to be out of the 200's for my birthday!!! But it was not Sunday morning yet....and it had to be "official". This morning I woke up eagerly looking forward (for a change) to step on the scale & "officially" be out of the 200's. I stepped on the scale & it read 200.0...WHAT???? I couldn't believe it!!! I stepped on again (in case it was off a little bit...haha) & it read 200.0. I only needed ONE ounce to put me under 200....ONE OUNCE!!! I had to do it...I had to enter 200.0 lbs. on my tracker. Don't get me wrong....I am grateful for the 1.8 lbs. & the inches that I lost this week but now I am going to have to be really, REALLY good while I am on vacation & I don't think that I am THAT disciplined...especially when you are surrounded by people catering to your every whim. I will do my best to have fun AND make smart choices but I think that ounce would have motivated me more...wish me luck!!! emoticon emoticon

    I understand the frustration of trying to get under 200. It was almost as if my body was fighting against it when I was there. I actually was down to 180 or so for awhile. Whatever you do, do not give up. It is only a number. Remember it's how you feel that is more important. My diet coach ofen reminded me that when I was stuck at a certain weight it was probably because my fat was converting to muscle and how your clothes feel (looser with more muscle and less fat) is more important than the number on the scale.
