That is sooooo awesome. I'm sitting here feeling very happy and proud of you and yet also a little (or a lot maybe) jealous. I'm hovering at 32, and somehow this is now a goal of mine. I just can't wait to be "40 pounds overweight" rather than "obese", I think I have about 12 pounds to lose before I can say that. So what are you doing to reward yourself? Mani-pedi, a new red dress, monster truck rally tickets?
congrats farr1022!!!!! it is awsome!!!!
i also experinced the same thing, just losing about 5 lbs has dropped me from obese to mildly overweight, i just look at it and love it! still so far from my goal, but it is still a victory!
got 24 lbs to go to reach my goal and for some reason, it seems alot more acheivable than it did last week!
My next big goal is 149.9 lbs, because that will officially move me out of the "overweight" bar and into the "healthy weight" bar. I'm at 155.6.......
The scale at the gym consistently weighs me 5 lbs heavier than my home scae, so I get to break those decade marks twice. I post the friendlier home scale numbers, of course The trainer's even said that scale is off, and the new bathroom scale agrees with the one that met an untimely demise.
These victories aren't meaningless, they're what keep us going. Put on your red dress and rock it like RuPaul at that monster truck rally ROFL.
If I keep starting over, eventually it will stick, right?
Current weight: 140
Goal weight: 135
Okay, almeeker, you have me laughing again like your response last week...Farr1022 is a guy and the mental pic in my head is hysterical!!!
Congrats to you both on your terrific losses and hard work
Yes, I know he's a guy, but when I think "losing-it rewards" I just automatically go to "mani-pedi, new red dress". See, I did throw in "Monster truck rally tickets" for the guys this time. At least I didn't suggest he go and buy some new bras or pantyhose.
almeeker, I noticed on your little signature line that your goal weight is 120. I'm just wondering how you picked that number and how long you're expecting that journey to take. (Congrats on how far you've come, by the way.)
I was at 205 when I started to make a change and never in a million years would I have said "I think I'd like to be 120 pounds, now let's get to it!" From my eyes, that seems so unattainable. Heck, I figured if I could hit the 150's I'd be doing great. Now that I have, I'm inspired to keep going and seeing your goal makes me wonder if I could do that. Guess I'm looking for words of inspiration, but I don't want to set goals for myself that I might never reach (but maybe that's just limiting myself, too?). Just consider this questions from the curious!
