3/9/11- 115lbs

I was down to 111 and felt good. I would like to get back down to 110. I went for my 2nd walk this year. The uphill part of the walk made me see how out of shape that I am. My 2 year old granddaughter is no longer living with us and the weather is getting somewhat nicer, so I am getting back into the exercise mode.

Time for me to join in this thread. I've lost the same 50 pounds too many times to count...and I've gained 20 lbs since last fall so time to get serious yet again.

Highest weight ever: 208
Current: 172
Goal: 135ish

Thanks Moe. I had lapband surgery 5 years ago so you'd think I'd have this weight thing licked, but it is definitely not a panacea!

That's a relief. I've been "triple-dipping" in dance class a few times to burn some more calories...that's 3 classes in a row - 2.5 hrs of dancing - pretty intense and fun to push myself! (Yeah, I know, watch for injuries...I've only done it a few times.)


Highest was 139# (2007)
5'4" Target range 116 - 121#

Week Weight
1/5 214.2
1/12 208.4
1/19 206.4
1/26 202.6
2/2 198.2
2/9 196.2
2/16 194.6
2/23 191.6
3/2 189.4
3/9 189.9
3/16 186.0
Goal 183.0

Diet Tip: A great way to lose weight is to eat while you are naked and standing in front of a mirror. Restaurants will almost always throw you out before you can eat too much!


Wife & I went snow skiing at Copper Mountain, CO., last week for a couple of days. We had sunny weather, short lift lines, interesting end-of-day hot tub aquaintences and good restaurants. And, continued with the weight loss!

Seems like with a lot of losers Grats to all!

Using prior Saturday's WW weigh in. Started WW at 205.4 in mid-August, 2010

1/12 190.4
1/19 188.8
1/26 188.2
2/2 187.8
2/9 186.2
2/23 185.8
3/2 184.8
3/9 184.6
3/16 183.6

I always use last Saturday's weigh in but I wish I could have used yesterdays (182.8). We spent all day Wednesday driving 200 miles each way to take out my mom for her 87th birthday. Nice day but 3 meals eaten out so I'm sure that will send the weight up for a few days. Not sure if it will be down again by Saturday.

Boy, I checked out of the forums for a while there, didn't I? But I'm glad to say I'm back and finally under 200 lbs.

Really starting to feel the challenge of losing, now. It's hard to take off and easy to put back on. I've been in the 202 - 198 range for two months now. But I keep at it and remind myself (daily) of how far I've come. That helps.

Congrats to everyone out there who's still slogging away at it!

3-23-11: 186, the more I exercise the more I eat. note to self - cannot lose weight if I consume more calories than I burn off.

Man, it's tough reporting that one...uggh. I have been happy maintaining around 123, but 125 scares me. Too much eating out. Hard part is, I'm making new friends lately, and they are inviting me out to eat. This is tough!

Have been eating and drinking up a storm but luckily I'm more active on vacation than I am at home. Have been diving two tanks every morning, riding bicycles around the island daily and walking everywhere we need to go.

Two weeks in England and 4lb increase already. We are now settled into our rental house, having furnished it, so now maybe I can get back to eating more sensibly.

I seem to have reached a plateau between 186 & 188. I'm not feeling bad about this current weight although I'd like to average closer to 185. I'll just keep at my current food intake and hope summer with more physical activity does the trick. (I'm not giving up my nightly beer(s)!)

That plateau will get you every time. Excellent work to get to a plateau just above where you want to be. Keep on doing what you've been doing and you may well find that you'll edge down over time.
