It would probably do me good to join this group, so here goes:

3/1/10 197
4/1/10 195
5/1/10 192
6/1/10 192
7/1/10 191
8/1/10 189
9/1/10 190
10/1/10 193
11/1/10 194
12/1/10 193
1/1/11 187
2/1/11 188
3/1/11 186

Let myself go last fall, but I'm back on the right track again.
Ideal weight for me would be around 170, so I have some distance to go.

I don't think we'll be able to resist not being weighed over the next 7 months so I'm expecting that we'll end up buying a scale while we are in England. Last year we were there for 10 weeks and didn't weigh in until we got back. I was 174 just before we left and 180 when we got back.

We're hoping to do better this time

Oh wow, didn't know you were going to England for 7 months. Awesome! And, uh, yeah...I'd need to buy a scale for sure - I know most don't recommend it, but weighing in every day is the only way for me to stay close to maintenance range. It's a daily battle, but worth it!

Congratulations.

I still use my WW 10% loss key ring that I got in 2003. It's a bit faded now but still a nice reminder. Do they still hand-out key rings for the 10%'ers ?

I posted this back in July:

7/7/10 255 2 months ago I weighed 241! Gotta get a handle on it...

Unfortunately, as of yesterday (and today) I STILL weigh 255, actually...255.5.

So NOW, I'm absolutely 100% positively gonna do something about it! I have to. My blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol are all too high. If I don't get my weight down, I'm not gonna be here long after I ER, or even if I am still here, I might likely not be able to enjoy it. So....I have now embarked on a plan to get my weight to where it should be, and to become healthier. And I MEAN it this time...

I'm putting it in writing.

3/03/11 255.5

Yes they do. It is very nice. I am actually a regaining lifetime member. When I became lifetime 20 years ago they gave you a keyring with a huge key on it. The key ring was just plain with the main thing being the huge key. However, within a couple of months it was all discolored and crummy looking so I don't use it. The quality of materials seems to have improved since then.
