Default I achieved my target weigh this past weekend!

Woohoo! Yup, finally got under 155lbs. I've been trying to hit this goal for the past 3 months and finally did it this past weekend.

Maintaining this is the next challenge

You suck. Just kidding, you don't suck, YOU ROCK, I'm just jealous as all get out. Good luck on that maintaining thing. And well I think if you're going to brag and woot, you ought to throw up a few before and after shots. Whose with me on that one?

Congratulations! Yes, I agree with almeeker, before & after shots are so much fun to see. Would also like to hear about changes other than appearance.

Love hearing about successes, thanks!

Yes, I work out, joined a gym back in March'09. I used to go 3-5x a week, but have since tapered it back to 3x a week and I'll do resistance training w/ machines & free weights.
I also started increasing my cardio on the tredmill & ellip back in January of this year. Once my legs & knees started to feel stronger, I started to jog around my local park before I would go to work. My goal was to start running 5k events and I just recently ran my fourth 5k race (last weekend) and I started running 5k's in July.

I've been at a plateau for the last month or so and decided to really focus on a consistent calorie deficit (between 500 to 1,000 calories) and try to cut back on carbs and really cut back on beers.....I love my Heinekens (although I went overboard this last weekend).
I'll also turn on my activities so ya'll can see my workouts.

My other mini goal is to get to 10% body fat by this October, which is still few weeks away, I just hope I can maintain my weight till then.....

I'll post some before & after pics later.

Awesome job, sw07! Congrats, and good luck on that last final goal with the body fat %. It's a daunting thing adding those calories back in for maintenance; just pay attention to your body and you'll do fine.

hi congratulation on your success.
when i reached one of my weight goals i then started to make performance goals such as cutting down my 5k times or increasing my max lifts. everyone has different motivators and i find these performance based ones work better for me.
