The last ten are like a boomarang for me. I get rid of them and they return -- a never ending cyle:( But my motto for this year is 2010 and never again. Today I am 8 pounds away from my goal. It's definately a fight -- but one I intend to win! emoticon

Hi, BZOOTY! Yup, those last 10 lbs are hard to get rid of, but they WILL come OFF! Everyone is correct about changing things up. I could not for the life of me get the last few pounds off--in fact my body would not let go of the last 3-5 pounds. UGH!

Take your time--don't think about the 10 1bs--think about the 1-2 pounds you will lose per week. These Spark friends are right; you need to change things a bit. I did a new program...Chalene Extreme! Once your body starts getting used to something new; change it up! I was seriously tracking my food and eating better. The diets don't work; find ways to eat healthier by planning out something tasteful, but healthy to eat. I also eat every 2-3 hours mainly because I need to eat. I get so hungry because I have become accustomed to eating smaller meals, so I get fuller more quickly. Oh, sure I have days where I eat like sugar cookies (well, just during the holidays), but boy, do I pay for those days with Turbo Jams. Even my kids know that I shouldn't be eating junk. I asked her for one of her McDonald's french fry and then she told me that it I would have to do at least 5 Turbo Jams to offset the calories! emoticon

I'm actually reevaluating my goals for the year--fitness and life and see what measurable steps I can make to get there. :)

You can do this!

HUGS!

I have been working on my last few pounds for a while now. I did MTC in the end of Sept/Oct and lost 4 pounds then and so far time around my eating has not been as good.

Them last ones are difficult but changing it up sure helps.

Me too! When I stopped my workout routine I lost the last 4 lbs that I couldn't break through otherwise. I got lots of sleep, ate less than usual (I wasn't as hungry when I wasn't working out) and Voila, plateau broken!

Switching things up in a BIG way is the secret!

For months and months I could not get rid of the last 5 pounds until my goal. I was watching my diet like a hawk, running my booty off ( 2 half marathons and other races) and still nothing. I got really frustrated and just accepted that my body was meant to be 5 pounds higher than my goal. Then in September I went on vacation to Paris (got engaged!) and a couple weeks later to Vegas for a few days. During this time I eased off on the exercise and was eating a little bit more. By the time my vacation was over, and I got back into my usual routine, the last few pounds came off. I think my body needed a break and a change from how hard I had been pushing it.

I'm workin on it!
8 lbs to go and 8 weeks til New Years.
My plan is to eat clean and journal everything that I eat (staying between 1200-1500 cals). Also, I'm on level 2 now of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I'll be doing that 3 times per week for 3 weeks, then seeing if I can bump it up to level 3!
Good luck everyone else. :D :D :D

I know exactly what you are talking about BZOOTY! I have been dealing with the same thing and it is very frustrating.

You have to change your routine because your body will get use to the same thing and the same resistance too!.
I know that worked for me when i had lost alot of my weight and my body would bounce between 132 and the 140 untill i changed my routine and increased the resistance .
Try that and see how that works for you .

To be strong and focused in all i do .
and never say never.
Also i can do anything through Christ our Lord and Savior Amen Thank you
JESUS!!
I also tell myself i will control the weight the weight doesn't control me!!

I'm down within 10 lbs of my goal and my body does NOT want to budge. My BMI is on the high end of the healthy range, and it seems like my body is just happy where it's at. But I've got old clothes I know that I can wear again once I get rid of these last 10 lbs.

So all of you who got rid of those last ten, or are making it happen right now, what are your secrets? From diet to exercise, I'm all ears. Thanks!
