Still here. Went up slightly today. Oh well. I had a really quick drop though, and I've been eating healthy, so hopefully I won't stay long.

I have a cold going on that's pretty annoying. I slept a lot today. The rest of me is still pretty weak, but at least my mind wants to be doing things now.

Still hopeful to leave for good soon though.

Awesome job and emoticon I am down another pound today so moving into the third floor. But I have been moving up and down these same floors for months. I am determined to get past the plateau and move on out of town. Hopefully we will both move on out of town soon!! My goal is to be out of here by May, so I have two more weeks to get these 3 pounds good and gone!

Been stuck in 220-ville too long!! I made a brief trip to 210-ville a few weeks ago, but keep ending back in 220-ville. Big plateau for me between 224-220. I am going to have to work hard this month to break free!! Come on swim suit weather!! I love swimming laps.

Wow! the day has finally arrived. The scale read 219 lbs. this morning. As I have mentioned several times before it means a lot to me to get out of 230 & 220ville. I've only been in these two villes for 1 1/2 yrs. I did manage to slip into 210ville for a short time a yr. ago. It really is time for me to move on down the road. I am locking the door behind me & never coming back. I am so happy today that I'm leaving this place forever! The time to say goodbye to 220ville has arrived! I am looking out the lobby window & here comes my moving van. What a beautiful sight! emoticon Bye 220ville! emoticon Wishing all that come after me good luck in your weight loss journey. Arrivederci 220ville! emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Leslie, I hope or should I say I know I will see you soon in 210ville. The warmer weather is right around the corner & the weight will start coming off by leaps & emoticon emoticon bounds!

emoticon Leslie. how are things going? I'm just hanging around down in the lobby looking out the window! It might take a few days or maybe a few weeks till the moving van comes. I've tried to be careful with sodium. I could gain 4 to 5 lbs. like nothing with water gain if I'm not careful. I just want out of here so much I can taste it!!

I think I can! I was just looking at the calendar & we have exactly one week left in March. I was hoping to get into 210ville by then. Even though spring is officially here it's been so cold. I know the warmer weather is right around the corner. It will be time to shed those winter coats & hoddies. I am trying to lose as much weight as I can before that happens. I feel very self conscious the way I look now. I know once I lose another 6 to 8 lbs. I will feel much better about my appearance. I know that might sound a little vain but how we look & feel has a lot to do with how well we lose the weight!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I wish I could say the time has come but I have to wait a little longer. emoticon I got on the scale this morning & it read 220 lbs. So I guess I'm moving to the lobby. I finished packing all my things & cleaned out the apartment. As I looked around the empty apartment their was a hint of sadness because I have been living in 230 ville & 220ville for so long now. I know it's time to move on down the road because my body keeps reminding me the longer I procrastinate in losing this weight, the harder & longer it will take me to see my goals. My next goal once I move into 210ville will be 216 lbs. That is my half way point. then 200ville. From their one of my biggest goals, Onederland. emoticon To be honest I really don't know the last time I weighed under 200 lbs. May twenty yrs. ago? I really haven't given it much thought what my goals will be once I'm under 200 lbs. One thing I do know once I lose another 30 to 40 lbs. I would like to start a exercise routine to tone my body. I'm sure I will really need it by then. I don't think I will ever get rid of any loose skin but that's the price I must pay for letting myself get so big. emoticon I just sold my apartment so I have to remain in the lobby till I can call the moving van. This last lb. to lose is going to seem like an eternity! emoticon

I thought it might be April 1st April fools day! emoticon I got on the scale this morning & it read 218 lbs. emoticon I knew something was wrong! I guess I didn't step on the scale evenly. If you don't, it throws my scale off. Maybe for Christmas this yr. I will treat myself to a new scale. I will admit 218 lbs. looked so, so, nice even if it was for only for a brief moment! Anyway, the scale was down a lb. Weighed in at 221 lbs. this morning. The next move is the lobby then I'm out of here for good. Their are times I drop 2 lbs. at a time.(that's not happening to much any more). Boy, would that be nice to drop to 219 lbs. I would skip the lobby & move right into 210ville. emoticon Another thought that seemed so nice is that we have 8 days left till April. It would be so nice to be out of here by then. I truly don't think my body will co-operate. I think it's time to put my apartment up for sale. As I mentioned I started packing my emoticon Now the wait begins. emoticon I will try my best to be patient. I will keep moving & make good emoticon food choices. Hopefully, very soon it will all come together & I will be able to say goodbye to 220ville for the last & final time! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm down another lb. The scale read 222 this morning. I know I shouldn't get to excited because tomorrow the scale could be emoticon 3 lbs. You know how that goes! The fact still remains I am excited. emoticon As I've said several times these two villes(220 & 230) ville drag me down. I feel so depressed in these villes. I don't know if it's because I've been living in them for around 1 1/2 yrs. but whatever the reason I am so ready to leave here & never return. I have 3 lbs. to go & that could take three weeks or more! emoticon My body doesn't co-operate sometimes or I should say most of the time! I've been down to visit the lobby & started making arrangements for putting my apartment up for sale. As I 've said before I'm not putting my apartment up for rent but selling it because I have no intentions on coming back!! emoticon I started packing my emoticon so when the time does come I will be ready to move on. I guess now it's a waiting emoticon game. I will try my best to be patient. I will keep moving & make good emoticon food choices. Eventually (hoping very soon) it will all come together & I will be able to say goodbye to 220ville for the last & final time! I am going to be so happy when that day comes! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Way to go! And thank you for the saying..good thing for me to remember before eating junk. Haven't been doing very well the last couple days....need to get back on track as I don't want to head out of 220_vile the wrong direction...never want to see 230_s again.
Keep up the great job ...Back.on track today but afraid to see what the scale says now.

I was scared to get on the scale this morning because those 3 lbs. I finally lost after 2 weeks might return. emoticon I was a happy camper. emoticon The scale stayed at 223 lbs. I'm starting to see the lobby in a distance & my next ville. It might take another 3 or 4 weeks to move into 210ville. Who knows but you have know idea how happy I will be when I move out of here! emoticon . I can't wait to get out of this ville & move on down the road. I've been living in this ville off & on for about 1 1/2 years now & it's time to move on down the road, PERMENTLY! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Finally after 16 days the scale dropped below 226 lbs. I'm not going to get too excited because tomorrow it might be right back up again. I look for things that motivate me & I just read something so simple but it is just what I needed to hear." Keep moving and make good food choices. Eventually it will all come together." That is what I'm going to do. This really made me stop & think. Even if the scale isn't moving as long as you know in your heart you are trying your best it will come together eventually. It took 2 wks. for the scale to start dropping. Just think if I wasn't patient & didn't preserver I might have gone right back to 230ville again. emoticon Wow, does that make you emoticon and think! emoticon It is so easy when the scale isn't moving to say the heck with it & go back to your old ways. A couple of chips here, some sweets their & before you can sneeze your back to 230ville where you tried so hard to leave. emoticon I promised myself I am not going back to a ville once I leave! As I said before the weight is coming off very slowly this time since I've been back on track. That has put such a scare in me that I made a promise to myself that once I leave a ville I will not return. I have spent the last year & a half between 230ville & 220ville. I am so ready to leave this ville you can't even imagine. One of my short term goals is to reach 210ville by the middle of April at the latest. I hope my body will co-operate! emoticon emoticon

emoticon Leslie, I hope things are going good for you on your weigh lose journey.

Way to go on getting back to 226! Don't worry about the past...keep moving forward.
I had a bad day yesterday...gave in and had a bunch of junk food...pop, chocolate, Wendy's....ooops. Back on track today. Am a little over a pound behind you...hopefully that will come off soon. Haven't been to the gym this week ... I usually go first thing in the morning but guess I haven't been able to adjust to daylight savings time yet....getting up at 6:15 right now just seems wrong. Doesn't help that I have come down with a cold...my first in over a year. Hopefully I can kick that soon....will eat better and maybe that will help.

Have a great day and keep up the good work! emoticon

Just checking in. The scale is finally down to where I started 12 days ago. I'm back down to 226 lbs. So that means I haven't lost any weight in 12 days! emoticon No wonder why people get so discouraged when trying to lose weight. So if I'm real careful maybe I can start marching down these floors to the next ville.

Hi Leslie. I'm glad I'm not the only one here. Wow what a great incentive you have to lose the weight. I'm afraid I'm doing it alone. My DD is on a diet also but isn't much help. I wish I could get her to join SP. Let's march down these villes to Onederland. emoticon emoticon It might take me a bit longer but that's ok. I'm so determined to see Onederland by the end of the summer. I was hoping that this didn't happen but I stalled out. I gained 8 lbs. in a few days. Can you imagine that. Who gains that kind of weight in a few days. It's my fault because I went off track a little but my salt intake was off the wall. I'm going to be more careful from now on. I gain water weight very easily especially in the summer months. I know that will slow the process in losing weight but it is something I will just have to deal with. Fortunately most of the gain was mostly water. One more lb. & I'm back to 226. emoticon I can't wait to start going back down the floors again. That will give me some incentive to stick to my diet & eat healthy! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning Linzee

Glad to see you here. I used to use sparkpeople a lot...but have not made a lot of progress and wandered away from it. I am back working on it again and starting to see the weight go in the right direction. My mind set seems to be more on track...I am able to make better choices and I too want to say goodbye to 220ville! I never want to see 230ville again!

My daughter and a group of our friends are starting a 3 month challenge...each put in $20 and there are 14 of us so would make a nice dent in a summer wardrobe if I win! Pop is my biggest downfall and I have moved it to the basement fridge so I don't see it when I get something from the upstairs fridge and it is working...in the last couple weeks I think I have only given in and had some a couple times...quite a change from every day!

I am also working on not snacking if I get up during the night. That is a real bad habit of mine and where I end up getting way too many calories because it was always pop and cookies or chips! Haven't done that in a couple weeks now either! Have dropped 5 pounds in the last 3 weeks...and planning on watching more go as the weeks go by! Really want to be under 200 by the end of the summer!

Hope you have a great day and that I can follow you out of 220ville soon.

Leslie

I guess I was getting a little over confident(cocky) & went off my diet for a few days. The scale went flying emoticon & I did major damage in just a few days. emoticon Two good things are that I did get on the scale this morning to hold myself accountable & face the fact that my eating was out of control the last few days. At least some of the weight gain is water gain. Weigh in is on Weds. for me because I participate in BLC challenge. My plan is for the next several days--
I am going to watch my sodium & calorie intake. I might even break out the treadmill. The only bad news is I have a funeral to go to tomorrow & the family is having a diner afterwards. It will be hard but I will try to make the least fattening choices when eating. I will try real hard to loss this extra weight & not get on the scale till Monday. Hopefully by then I can knock the scale down a few lbs. I don't want to get discouraged & go into a eating frenzy.

Good morning anyone, I guess I'm the only one here. That's ok because I use these villes as a weight loss journal. Plus the fact that they keep me going & motivate me. emoticon When I'm so close to moving to a new ville I get excited & it makes me want to push even harder to get out of that ville & on to the next! I wish more people would use these villes. They really do work! Anyway, since I moved in the weight is coming off by leaps & bounds! emoticon I know this isn't going to last much longer but it would be so nice if it would last till I'm out of here or close to it like the 1st floor(221 lbs.) Yesterday was a good day for me because not only did I fit back into my old blue jeans that I outgrew during the holidays but I officially retired my fat pants yesterday. These were pants that fit me when I was at my highest(276 lbs.) They were a size 20W but I grant you I should have taken a 22W. When I gained all that weight during the holidays I had to go up the attic & get my fat pants. They were the only dress pants that would fit me. That had me so depressed! emoticon Yesterday I tried on my 16W pants & they fit. They are a little snug but they fit! emoticon Also I am down 50 lbs. now! emoticon 10 more lbs. & I will be at my half way point at losing weight! I felt so depressed in 230ville but to be honest I also feel depressed in 220ville. I know in my heart once I move into 210ville I will feel a lot better. I know it will take time emoticon but I must be patient. I keep on telling myself that spring is right around the corner & I don't have much time to get back to 210ville.
emoticon till I can say emoticon to 220ville! That is going to be a very happy day for me! emoticon

I'm so surprised. The scale stayed the same for almost two weeks & now I'm down 4 lbs. in a few days. emoticon Try & figure that out. I was feeling so down in 230ville. I tried everything to get the emoticon emoticon but I was stuck in 230ville for almost 6 weeks. Some people would say that isn't to bad but for me it was. When I 1st go back on track my weight comes off very fast. Not this time. Their were times the scale wouldn't move for almost 2 weeks at a time. This never happened to me before. emoticon Another thing that concerned me was spring is right around the corner & you can't hide under winter coats & hoodies in the spring & summer months. My immediate goal is to get to 210ville (219 lbs.) by the spring. I hope so much that my body will co-operate! At least I would be able to fit in my old jeans that I outgrew when the holidays came around. emoticon I'm going to emoticon till I can say emoticon to 220ville.

P.S. I just tried my old blue jeans on & they fit. Their a little snug & they do make me look fatter but at least they fit!

emoticon Everyone, I'm moving in today. Everything I posted in "new in town" I'm posting here. I'm not new to this ville but so happy to be here! emoticon I've been here to many times to mention. Since I've been back on track it's been slow going emoticon this time. For some reason their are times the scale doesn't move for almost 2 weeks at a time. That has scared me! emoticon It has scared me enough to reinforce me to make the little & healthy decisions each day so once I leave a ville I won't come back! My next goal is to see 210ville by the late spring. I am increasing my emoticon so just maybe I can see 210ville by the springtime! Once I lose another 10 to 15 lbs. I will feel more comfortable & have much more self confidence especially with the spring & summertime right around the corner! I hope my body will only CO-OPERATE! I hope my stay here won't be to long! emoticon emoticon

Gah! I have been here almost three months. I gave myself a little slack around the holidays, but it is time to get on out of here. I am going to work hard to see if I can't be gone by Saturday so that I don't go over 3 months!! I am so ready to get into the teens!!

I've been 220 for as long as I can remember. I'm hoping to break the chain and hit the 200 mark sometime around February. I'm starting the couch to 5k and really trying to keep a track on my calorie count.

Anyone else out there trying anything new for them? Anyone out there tried the couch to 5k?

I've been out of the 220ville for over a month now. I'm getting close in getting out of 210ville. I quit eating gluten back in March when I weighed 227 pounds. Don't regret it at all.

I haven't moved in over a month. I can't blame it on plateuing. I just blame it on not doing what I know I need to do. I am determined that this is going to be the time I get it. This is my life, I get to choose what my future will be like. I get to be in charge of what goes in my mouth and what I do with my time. I choose to be happy and healthy emoticon

I'm still in the same area I was last week. Weekends are tough, especially when my pregnant sister is craving fried chicken and sweet tea! Her work mates have told her that we can't all look like we're pregnant, though, so everyone is taking turns going to her favorite place. I need to get back to kettlebells and the treadmill.

Sweating definitely makes a difference, even if it wasn't necessarily from the exercise. Just be sure to get some fluids! We're struggling with the heat here, but at least we have AC to retreat to. I'm down to 223-ish (analog scale), so I'm seeing numbers I haven't seen recently.

Well i got up and got on scale said 221.6 so yeah im thinking it was from all the sweating yesterday the ac stopped and the wall unit said 98 degrees in this house most of yesterday have window units but was still warm. Luckily the downstairs is underground and the kids' rooms were nice and cool so they were fine. Anyway gotta get up and start cleaning up this house before gets to hot to do anything...did about 10 mins of zumba before youngest demanded cartoons lol

You're not the only one. I'll make some progress down the scale, then for some reason, I'll pop back up (a lot!). Hopefully, I've got things under control with our recent abundance of fresh foods in the area.

I weighed in today & the scale read 218 lbs. so I guess I'm out of here. This is the quickest I ever left a ville. Their are a few reasons. I came in on the 4th floor & some of the weight loss was from water retention. My eyes are focused on Onederland now! Here comes the moving van. Adios, Au Revoir, Arrivederci. emoticon

They say "never say never" well I'm back! emoticon The good news is I came in on the 4th floor(224 lbs.) so hopefully my stay won't be too long. In the few days I've been here I'm already down to the lobby. When I leave this time I refuse to say I'll never be back. I am going to say, " I hope I never return." Our BLC-25 starts on Wednesday. I just started back on track & this challenge couldn't be a more perfect timing. The bad news is I'm having trouble with my knee which will means less calories burned each day plus I am going away for 5 days in the beginning of May. I hope I don't put on the weight in those 5 days. I think I'm the only one who could pack on 5 lbs. in 5 days if I don't watch it!

The day has finally come to leave. The scale read 219 lbs this morning. That was a beautiful site! The weight has been coming off a little slower now but the key word is patience. I've been back here several times & some of the people that were with me are now in 160 & 170ville. If I am to be perfectly honest with myself it does make me emoticon That could be me now in 160ville! They are the people that had patience with themselves even on weeks the scale stayed the same or went emoticon a lb. I am not going to beat myself up but what I am going to do is focus on moving to my next ville & Onederland. Who knows, maybe I will ring in the new year 2014 in Onederland. I wish all who come after me the best of luck with your weight loss journey & remember to have patience emoticon & above all don't give up.
What I have learned from this journey is to have patience with yourself, don't get discouraged, & above all keep pushing to your next ville.
Here comes the moving van! Bye 220vile!

emoticon 220ville for the last time! Arrivederci, Au revoir. emoticon 220ville

I'm back. I weighed myself. To be very honest I was scared but I just had to know. I was shocked that the scale read 222 lbs. It doesn't make any sense. When I was watching what I ate I was struggling to lose a lb. every 7 to 10 days. I am so, so happy! emoticon emoticon

emoticon Sparkedperson for the comment! In the last two weeks I had 3 family birthday parties to attend. The 1st was catered with all delicious fattening foods which started me emoticon hill. I have recovered. emoticon I didn't go real crazy the last two weeks eating unhealthy foods which I sometimes do when I get off track. I was hoping to be out of here by August 18th (one month) but it didn't materialize. I'm not going to beat myself up over it. Today is a new day, a fresh start & I'm going to make the best of it. I am afraid to get on the scale. I will muster up enough courage to get on the scale tomorrow. I was going to try getting out of here by the end of the month but depending on what the scale reads I might have to settle on Sept. 6th or 13th as a dead line to be out of here! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dumped another pound this morning. That puts me at 223 lbs. 4 more pounds to go till I'm finally moving out of here. These last 4 lbs. are going to seem like an eternity! I know I'm not going to be out of here by the 18th, that would be a month but I have made myself a promise. Once I move out I'm never coming back. I was thinking that when I lose these next 24 lbs. I will be in Onederland & that will give me the incentive NOT to come back. emoticon emoticon

After 8 days I finally lost 1 lb. emoticon I'm not going to get out of here in a month! Oh well. All I can do is emoticon I was using the food tracker for almost a week then stopped. I am going to start using it again today! I have my 2 granddaughters birthday party on Saturday. It is going to be catered with all kind of fattening food. No healthy food at all. Do I just go off my diet for the day or try & watch what I eat by making the best choices their? I have 3 days to decide. I have been really struggling to get out of this ville. I don't want to delay moving on to my next ville but that is what I'm going to do if I pig out on Sat. Even if I watch what I eat I'm still going to go over my calorie limit by a lot for the day. emoticon

emoticon The scale wasn't moving now I'm down 3 lbs. in two days.(225) I've been tracking all my food & staying in my calorie range. emoticon So I guess using the tracker is working. I did notice that I will drop 2 to 3 lbs. in a few days & then nothing for a week or more. I am going to do everything I can to get to 210ville where I will feel more comfortable. emoticon emoticon I can't wait till that scale reads 219 lbs. It will be a very happy day for me! emoticon Now I feel that their might be a slim chance that I can get out of here in a month.

Good news. emoticon The scale finally moved down 2 more pounds. Down to 226 lbs. I have been using the food tracker faithfully each day now & it seems to be working. I was really starting to get discouraged. emoticon I meet another sparker who lost 190 lbs. She told me that the food tracker & exercise were key to her loosing all that weight. But the food tracker was the most important for her.She called it her life saver! I knew I've been eating healthy but a guess I was eating a little to much. I don't know if I will be out of here in a month but I will emoticon . By the way today will mark a 50 lbs. weight loss so far. emoticon

It has been 7 days now & my weight has been bouncing between 228 &229 lbs. emoticon After reflecting on the situation I've come to the conclusion it's not what I'm eating but the amount I'm eating that is causing me a problem. I'm going to kick this problem in the butt before it gets out of control. Yesterday I decided to start using the food tracker again. Even though I have been watching what I eat the amount I eat is another story. Sometimes we think we are not eating much till we start tracking, measuring, & weighing everything that goes into our mouth. The results can be shocking! emoticon I always had success with loosing weight when I was using the food tracker. I decided to start using it again even though it can be time consuming. More like a pain but using it does show results! emoticon emoticon My weigh-in with BLC is Wednesday so we will see if I can get that scale down a pound by then!

I weighed in this morning & am down 1lb. (228) I am still happy even if it is only 1 lb. At least I'm not on the top floor. It is so easy to visit your old hi rise when your their. I've been on track since June 5th. I lost a lot of weight at 1st now things are really slowing down. I hope I can get out of here in a month. I don't know if it's doable but I'm going to keep pushing till I'm out of here. I feel very down when I'm in 220 or 230ville. Both mentally & physically. It's hard to believe that I was down to 202 lbs. a yr. ago. I was so close to Onederland. I can kick myself for going off track. I am going to continue going through these villes even if I am the only one here. They give me the enthusiasm I need to keep going. It's not too hard to lose the weight 10 lbs. at a time. When I don't use these villes I seem to go off track. I don't want that to EVER HAPPEN AGAIN! emoticon emoticon

I'm back! emoticon This will make my 5th visit here. As I've said it seems I have spent most of this past year between 210 & 230ville. I will be a happy day indeed when I see 200ville. The weight is coming off a little slower now so I really don't know how long it will take to get out of here! I will just emoticon till I'm out of here! emoticon

Well, thought I would be leaving this area today, but scales didn't agree with that thought this morning. Yesterday I weighed 220.0, but today it decided to add .2 pounds to that! Maybe tomorrow?

This is officially my last post before I leave here FOREVER! emoticon I guess I said it all in my goodbye post. I still had to write something in this post to make this final. I've been back here 4 times! I sure hope I learned something from all the times I've been back. Personally when camping season comes around this coming year I'm not going to use that as an excuse to eat everything & anything in site. After looking back & doing a little reflecting that is where I usually go off track. The holidays are also a little scary for me. As I said before even though I'm the only one here it still helped me being here. When you have a lot of weight to lose focusing in on losing the weight in 10 lb. Increments is so much easier! emoticon I look forward going down each floor at the hi rise & moving to my new hi rise. emoticon The only thing I can say for all those that will come after me emoticon you emoticon . It took me 4 tries but I am now officially leaving for the last time! Good luck everyone. See you in 210ville! Here comes the moving van to take me to my new hi rise. Arrivederci, Adios, GOODBYE FOREVER TO 220ville!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I guess I'm still the only one here. I'm down to the 1st floor as of this morning. I can't wait to leave. I was 207 lbs. when I went off track in March. It seems this time it is a little harder losing this weight I put on since March. The only thing I can do is emoticon each day. I keep telling myself that I will not come back here. This is my 4th time back & it WILL be my last time. It is going to be a one way street from now on. I refuse to come back here. It will be nice to see 216 lbs. again. That will be my half way point.(60 lbs. lost) emoticon

Still here. emoticon I had my 2nd eye surgery yesterday. Once again I can't be to active because of surgery. I was hoping to leave here by the beginning of Nov. but it might be more towards the middle of the month. I made a promise to myself that once I leave here emoticon it will be for good! emoticon I've been back so many times that I'm starting to lose count. I'm down to the 2nd floor. These next 3 lbs. I have to lose before I see my new high rise is going to seem like an eternity! I'm going to emoticon till I'm out of here! emoticon

I'm staying focused on 210ville. Personally I will feel a lot better when I reach 219. (210ville). I hope I can be out of here by the beginning of next month. I will keep on pushing till I see 210ville. I had eye surgery yesterday which means I can"t be as active & in a few weeks I will have surgery on the other eye . Because of some limited mobility right now it might take me longer to get out of here than i anticipated. emoticon emoticon

I am going to try to lose as much weight as possible because the holidays are right around the corner & I tend not to do well at that time.I am trying to keep my focus on 210ville which will bring me that much closer to Onederland.Once I enter Onederland I don't ever want to leave! emoticon

Jane,

Good to have you back. Congrats on getting the house to yourself. Glad you have time to focus on your goals now.

Harletheart -- Paleo is going great. It's such a simple way of eating. I just did a meat and vegetable scramble -- that's mostly what I'm doing these days. Sometimes I'll do eggs with a few vegetables or maybe some feta cheese in the mornings. I found a Paleo-friendly cheesecake recipe, so I'll pull that out as a treat now and then. I usually take 1/2 day on Saturdays and Sundays to eat what I want.

I'm already halfway through 210-Ville. It's so hard to believe that I'll be looking at 200-Ville in a month or so. I'm going go go survey the land...

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

Hi everyone! so excited to see others here,
After a month away from spkppl and watching what I am doing I am firmly back in the middle of 220ville. I was so close, but had a couple of trips this month and then could not bring myself to recommit!
I have done so now.
I have had three swimming lessons this week, Last night i swam for 30 min continously.
and on an even more exciting note. my last daughter from my first marriage has a fulltime job after college, and is moving out on sat, sept 1st! after 12 years together for the first time by second husband and our son together will be living on our own the three of us, without any of his own or my own children. which is an exciting time for us!
one of my biggest goals has been accomplished. I wanted to raise my 2 daughters to be strong, smart and who went to college, get a better job than I ever had and get out on their own, having their lives and starting on a wonderful path for themselves. They have both done it! I am a proud mama!

Harletheart -- 23 lbs. is not tough to lose. Don't let it overwhelm you. I would recommend checking out the Paleo lifestyle. It's helped me tremendously with cravings and plateaus. Much success to you!

I used to have a goal that no matter what I would never go above 199, and I made it down to almost 180 last summer. Since then I somehow blossomed to 223. I am missing the 100s and can't wait to get back. It seemed so easy to put on the weight, but my body is definitely feeling it. It's a horrible feeling to hurt and be so tired. I know I need to make some lifestyle changes slowly and find things to keep me excited but I struggle with this. The last couple of days I've noticed that if I eat an only cooked meal, I feel exhausted and super hungry even though I just ate. If I eat a salad even with grilled chicken on it, I have so much more energy. I don't know if this is how it will stay, but something I just noticed in my search for why my stomach feels like a black hole once I start eating. lol

My weight's bumped up over the last few days. The weekend wasn't great for me. I thought I did pretty well yesterday, but I still went up a lb. Ready for more forward progress...

I will check out the book, Thanks for the tip.

My end goal weight is about 146. I am only 5'3" so even at 146 I am high normal almost overweight in the BMI scale. so once I get to it I may need to look at health factors and gain a bit or lose a bit more.

I was 246 when I started, I was at a dr appt and the nurse weighed me and I was shocked, I could not believe it! it was more than I was at 9 months pregnant. and I decided then to lose 100 lbs. thats how I came up with 146.
