Hi team!, I am new to the 150s but want to keep140s in mind. I may have been in the 140s as a young adult, but I did not have a scale back then. I wore the same size jeans. Work scrubs were small, but they are very forgiving. Nowadays jeans are stretchy too! Having the road signs (visual) on my homepage helped me go from 169 to 159 emoticon

Hi, Amanda! I'm glad someone else is here! I'm happy to be in 140ville too! I'm on the fifth floor (145.8 lbs) and I feel content with that for now, but I would love to lose 5 more pounds to get out of the overweight category.

Best of luck to you!
Krista

wow! the last person to post was in 2014!! That's been a LONG time ago, LOL! It seems so quiet around here. I am Amanda and I am thrilled to be in 140ville. I have been here for a little over a month now, but have been posting under the 140vill Hi-Rise apartments. I am 147.6 currently and hope to move on down to 140 which is my goal weight. I would love to be able to move further down to 135, but will be happy with just 140 for now. =)

Good luck everyone with reaching their goals!

Hey, everyone! I'm finally in the 140's :) My last weigh-in was 149.8. I'm hoping this team will help me stay focused on my goal.

Hello! I am new here. Just moved into the 140's yesterday. I weighed in at 149. I am SO happy to finally be here. I stayed in the 150's for what felt like forever....a whole year nearly!! Anyway, I am hoping the 140's won't take as long. My current goal is to get to 140, but I may change that to 135 when I get there if I feel like there is still a few that could come off. I am 5'6.5", so 130-135 would be more ideal, but I am ok with 140 if I can't get it to go any lower.

I everyone. I am at 145 now. I had a goal weight to get to 150 which is the high end of a healthy BMI area for me. I am still loosing some weight though and am feeling comfortable with that so my new goal is to get to 135 which is the mid range for my healthy BMI and see how I feel at that point.

Hi all! I am new here. I just want to be in 140-ville :) I'm currently 150 and I started at 155. My goal for now is 145 and I will re-evaluate that when I get there and see how I am feeling. I am 25 years old and haven't been 140 since my junior/senior year of high school, so I'm not sure how low is really maintainable and realistic for me. I've never considered myself to be "overweight"- I just want to lose those 10-15 pounds I gained in college and look my best...that may be 145, may be 140, who knows?!

It seems to be a slow battle, so don't be surprised if I weigh in often and there isn't much change....I promise I am trying and with consistency I am making progress! I try to run 3 high intensity interval sessions per week, hike with my dogs 2-4 times a week, and walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes 3-4 mornings per week, and strength train usually twice a week but I aim for 3 sessions. So as you can see, my effort is definitely there. I do have an office job which is a huge downside. Andddd sometimes I crave cake :) My exercise is consistent, and I enjoy it. I try to switch it up regularly. I would definitely say that food is what has kept me from making more progress thus far: holidays, social events, etc. I don't have emotional binges, I don't eat whole pints of ice cream, I eat fruits and veggies with almost every meal....I just sometimes have a big dinner or get some ice cream with my boyfriend.

Anyways, that's a little about me and why I'm here!

Greetings, all!

I just barely made it into 140-ville with my last weigh in, and I'm excited to be here. I have to admit, though, that I visited briefly about a year and a half ago but almost immediately headed back out to 150-ville.

This time I'm determined to see everything 140-ville has to offer as I'm on my wat to 130-ville. I don't know how long I'll be in town, but I want to see all the sights! I'm looking forward to hanging out with everyone, but not for too long, I hope.

Hola!! I'm Becky and I live in Costa Rica. I have been on SP for a long time, but have not made much progress after an initial weight loss. I've never had the time to really use SP or join teams (except for one) so now that I have a litte more time I thought I would see if I could build up a little momentum and inch my way down to 130-ville. I was scrolling through these posts and Liz said it perfectly for me: "140-ville is basically my stomping ground LOL Its my "magnet" weight." So...I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and finally making it to 130-ville. emoticon

Welcome to our newcomers! May your stay be as short or as long as you wish it to be.

I have been here (by choice) since January. I've been trying to maintain my weight after a 30 pound weightloss last year, and have succeeded with that mission. I've stayed about +/-3 pounds from 148 for the past 10 months, so I'm ready to start losing a bit of weight again. My goal is 15 more pounds, and then I think I'll be struggling to maintain for good. But here goes. Today's weigh in: 147. I'd like to see myself succeed at losing a few pounds before the new year, even given the temptations that lay ahead in the holiday season. Hoping to be out of 140-ville by my birthday (late February)!

I truly hope to not be here for long but, you never know! Anyway looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hi there,

I'm very happy to be entering 140-ville! I haven't been in this range in over ten years. Right now my goal weight is 140. When I get there, I'll talk with my doctor and nutritionist and see if I should stay there or go lower. The healthy BMI range for someone my height is 124-148, so 140 is kind of in the middle.

I've been a member of Overeaters Anonymous for the last four years, and during that time the weight has slowly come off (with a break for a healthy pregnancy). I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism last year, so getting support for my thyroid has also helped.

I haven't seen my nutritionist for a while, so most likely I'll be changing my food plan in the next month or two, now that I am at a lower weight. We'll see how that goes!

Grateful to be on the path to recovery from compulsive eating--one day at a time.

Hi everyone... My name is Deby...

I have been on SparkPeople a few years ago...
I rejoined this past Aug. @ 162... originally 155 was my goal weight
I realize now... that 155 isnt it... I am looking at 140 - 145...
I came to group early as incentive ... I am soooo close...
I will be letting my body tell me if I am to leave 140ville...

Wishing everyone all the best...

I haven't been here since last year when I got to 130 ville. Unfortunately I have been gaining two and then losing one.....etc.

When I inched up to 150 ville I finally got back to tracking nutrition and calories and have lost a couple pounds, enough to get back to 140 ville, temporarily I hope!

Hello! Hello! (Jumping up and down!)
I can't believe I'm here!!!! I may be jumping the gun, but I'm moving forward and not looking back. 149.8 this morning! I've lost 70.4 lbs and am working on my 'last 10' lbs. Honestly, I don't care how long it takes - I'm just thrilled to be saying I'm working on my last 10!
So glad to be here and look forward to getting to know you folks!

Let go of the emotion and break it down to a simple yes or no question! What do you really want?

Actually, I'm just entering 140-ville (149.8 this morning), but I'm so happy to be here for a little while! 150-ville held me captive for 6-ish weeks, and I've just committed to running the Chicago Half Marathon, so maybe with my pumped up training schedule, I won't be here quite as long!
Any other runners out there? We can do it!

hi, sparkers. i just entered 140 ville last wk! i waited for few days just to be sure it wasnt water weight...etc. very excited to make my way here. one sweaty ounce by one sweaty ounce at a time. i put in so much effort to earn my rite living large in the 140 ville. yay me. :D

SP helped me tremendously to stay focused. for that, im so grateful. My goal is to leave 140 vile by 1 wk of apr for my bike race. might be a bit aggressive, but, i think it is doable. with all the bike training i do...!

ok, so, its official. in the 140 ville! yeeehaaa.

Lilisuperhero here. I'm currently making my way out of 160-ville (hopefully this week, only half a pound to go), so I'm technically here illegally. But I just became the mayor (team leader) of 140-ville because this is eventually where I would like to live, and I want it to be a thriving community when I get here. Nice to meet you!!

Hi everyone! I'm Liz. 140-ville is basically my stomping ground LOL Its my "magnet" weight. I recently got into 150-ville for the first time since after my pregnancy in 2009. I lost a lot of weight last year and then gained it all back plus 10 lbs! That was scary. It took me awhile to get back on track from all the self loathing and anger at myself. I've finally came to peace with myself and am back stronger and with more knowledge than before. Ive gone back to the basics and am not in any hurry. I can do this again! I joined this team because I heard from another sparker that these teams are alot of fun. So I will try and become involved and do just that.

Hi I'm Periwinkle and I've been on this journey since March 29, 2012. Down 46.5 pounds so far (officially). Unofficially, I just arrived at 149, but my weight-in is on Wednesday, so that's when I will have really arrived!

Happy to be here!

Hi everyone! Just arrived this morning, after a 2 month stay in 150-ville. I'm hoping my stay here will be shorter... I'm all of 5 ft tall, small framed, so my ultimate destination is the 110's.

I am so happy to be almost here! I left here last December and then struggled and failed until I went back to tracking food and exercise on Sparkpeople again!

It is great to be back home, though my ultimate goal is 130 ville!

Also new to 140 ville. I hope to get to stay! This is my ideal range, though my ultimate goal is to be 135. Hopefully that will happen soon but for now I'm happy to be out of the 150s, though I'm not terribly far from them. Gonna work my way down to the lower floors and stay there if I can.

Hi All,
Finally made it into the 140's after being on a plateau in the 150s for 6 months. Phew!! On the plus side, I haven't been in the 140s for the past 17 years. So I am just thrilled to be here.

My frog tracker keeps jumping around from 142 to 146. Decided to move in to the condo and start a strategy to get to 130-ville. Right now with all the cookies floating around I guess I could at least start exercising daily. 2012 will be a good year and 130s will be great.

Right now I am between 149 and 150 but am hoping to get down to 145 by Christmas. Hoping not to be here past Valentines day. But meanwhile it is nice to meet people who are in the same boat as me.

Well I've been in the 140's now for about a month and am getting frustrated. I have stuck between 147-149. I guess the good part is that I haven't seen 150 in over a month! I am not giving up though!

I am 24 & my struggle with weight loss began at age 17. I have never been extremely overweight (with the exception of being pregnant, but that doesn't count haha), but I am tired of being tired and not feeling well.

I am 5'2" and I am 144 pounds (as of yesterday) I am not really concerned about the number so much as how I feel about myself and my overall health. I really hope that my family and I will acquire healthier eating habits.

Good luck everyone!

Hi all! I've been bouncing around the 140s for about a year now- occasionally making it to 138 or so before quickly bouncing back up. I'm ready to leave the 140s behind me for GOOD!

Hi, I am Sally. So happy to be here in 140-ville. Went through 160 and 150 villes in about 35 days each and hoping to travel through this town at the same rate although it's been ten years since I was in the 140's my final goal is 132 which is what I weighed when my kids were little.
They are now 22, 23, and 27. With all of the great resources and friends on this site, I know I Can Do It! Good luck to everyone on your travels! emoticon

Where's the streaking emoticon? Cuz I'm so happy to step foot in town, I feel like doing something CRAZY. emoticon

Heh. Don't worry, I'll spare you that! But seriously, I have not weighed in the 40s since.....1995? 1994? In other words, a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY long time. And to be honest, my end GOAL is in town, so I'm not really planning to "leave 140ville" at all unless I get the bug to see how much more I can lose. But i'm pretty happy. Been on Spark now for 4 YEARS this month and I'm more physically fit than I've ever been in my entire life. Wahoo!!!!

Hi all!
I blew through 150-ville and now I'm hanging here. I'm about 20 pounds away from my final goal and it still feels really far. Any advice or suggestions are always welcome. Good luck to everyone in this group in you endeavor to get past this team, and for those who are here to stay, congrats on your achievement!

Hi All, My name is Ruth, i started off as 163, lost 20 lbs, stopped exercising for about a year now, due to the fact that ive had evening classes (was a studying & working mom of a 2 yr old). Ive been in 140-ville for a while now , thankfully i did not regain much of the weight (only 3 lbs) so now that my studies are over, i wish to get back into the game. I am quite fed up of 140-ville and i ready to leave!!!!! Good Luck to all of you! :))

Hi! New to town, just moved to 140-ville last week. I started losing weight, again, on 1/17/11. My starting weight was 200 lbs, and I have now lost 52 lbs. I've lost weight before, only to gain it back, so this time I am going to be all about maintenance! I feel positive that this time I will be able to maintain the weight loss, because this time I worked to change other parts of my life too. I started eating healthy, watching my calories and working out 5 - 6 days a week. But I also started going out with old friends, and that has made a huge change in my life. I have a support system now, a way to deal with stress - other than food. I feel stronger this time. Anyway, I set my goal weight for 130. (thus the name change to Kat130) I am willing to be flexible on this though. If I look good, feel strong and I'm happy at 135 lbs than that might be where I stop. If 130 doesn't seem quite right, I could try for somewhere between 125 lbs and 129 lbs. At my height, 5"4, I should be anywhere in the range of 120 lbs and 135 lbs. So I'll just see how I feel after I lose another 13 - 18 lbs.

~Kat~

Ditto to Newmac--I hadn't seen the 140s in...over 6 years. I've lost over 30lbs this year, and am planning on reaching 135 soon, but I don't know if that will be my final goal weight. Originally I just wanted to reach 145, and I did that a little over a week ago! One big motivation for losing weight is an upcoming trip back to my hometown--Most of my family hasn't seen me in over a year! Also, my mom, dad, and sis have all been dieting (my dad is down to his 20s weight!) so I don't want to be the fat one :)

I'm very excited to be in the 140's for the first time in years. I've lost 41.9 lbs since 1/3/11 and definitely want to make it to 130-ville. Not sure what my final goal weight will be because I'm concentrating on getting into great shape and will go by that rather than a number.

Wishing us all success in reaching our goals.

Hi Everyone!

I am Missy, and I just arrived in 140-ville this weekend. I am very excited to be here. I know I will probably live here for at least the month of June, but may be here for the summer as I have a lot of vacations planned and maintenance in 140-ville would be my goal as I enjoy them.

Hi everyone! I'm Rosie, and I'm happy to say that my time in 140-ville has been relatively short...and now I'm all packed and ready to head on to 130-ville!

I spent a WHOLE lot of time in 150-ville. It was when I hit about 155 that I decided I needed to get out of "town"...and I found SparkPeople, my saving grace! I spent April in 140-ville, and at my last weigh-in, the scale read 139.5. emoticon I'm hoping that my next weigh-in will show that I'm moving solidly into 130-ville.

Nice to meet you all, and keep up the excellent work!!

Hello all! I have been in 140-ville for about two months, but I'm okay with it, coming from 160-ville.. However, I'm trying to get to the 130's and made it to the low 140's two weeks ago, and I get to 139 and 138 and back up to 140. I'm not doing anything different, so I'm hoping it's just muscle mass I'm gaining. However, I'm okay with the low 140's, but hopefully I'll be leaving here soon. Good luck to all! emoticon

10 in fact. I found everyone very supportive back then. I stayed in 130 ville for such a short time at the end of 2009. Didn't get to know it very well. Plan to get back by the end of 2011

Do what you can, but never forget that letting go is very different from giving up. Of all the things you can make in life, remember you make all the difference in your life.

Hi everyone. I weighed-in at 149 this morning and am happy to be here in 140-ville. Woo-hoo! I do hope to move on to 130-ville at some point, but to tell the truth I'm not in a big hurry. Steady progress through this town will be fine with me!

Yesterday morning I hopped up on my scale and clocked in at 149.6 pounds! Woo hoo! It took me twelve weeks to get through 150-ville... but I finally made it through and here I am! I'm probably going to be settling in here for three months, but then I am heading out again to find my final home in 130-ville! So glad to finally be here :)

Hello! I joined a little early....I hit 149.9 this morning, lol but as is typical for me on this journey, I usually go back up a couple of pounds before I come back down. Even so I decided to think positive and join this team. My original goal when I joined SP in January 2010 was to get to 150 but now that I'm there I've decided I can lose another 10 to 15 lbs.

Hey!! I was never able to leave the 140-ville for the wedding and now I have gained a few pounds since then as well and I want to hopefully get down to the 120-ville!! Standing only 5 feet tall, 120ish will actually be within my healthy range.
