Everytime I read one of your post's, I think there is a girl with her head on right. Small goals are a great way to get to your ultimate goal.
I hope your goal is to be happy, healthy, and at a maintainable weight.
Took me 17 months to lose 160. The last 20 took as long as the first 80.
Totally don't want to own my numbers this week. Chinese food + birthday party = ugh.
TW: 165.4 (wow, I'm actually down from last Monday, that's surprising.)
Next goal: 159.5 - half the weight I used to be!

Sometimes I don't post on Monday Because I don't like the number and Wednesday has always been my 'official' day. But I liked today's number, so here I go... LOL. Back in my maintenance 'zone'... now to maintain it.
Have a family wedding this weekend and am determined not to go off the rails....
Highest ever: 420+
Bariatric consult: 383
Last week: 170
This week: 167
Maintenance zone +/- 165
For a 'bad week' up .6 is not that bad. This a mental battle too, and sometimes we just need to regroup. Be kind to yourself and move forward....
Getting back to work meant that I was good as far as exercise is concerned and while I struggled with my vitamin routine the first few days I think I've got that worked out.
I hear you on the clothes too, my sister has been throwing bags of clothes at me (14-18's), and ya it's so strange to look at them and think no way but then I'm zipping them up... crazy.
Made it into the 220's for my 5 month surgiversary on Friday which was super exciting and I'm amazed how close I am to my low weight. My next goal is 220 (low weight), followed of course by getting under 220 and the next significant one is getting under 200. You summed it up perfectly Erin... what life is this?
Hope everyone has a great week!

morning weekly weighers!
the scale didn't move very much for me this week, but that's ok. It's still a decent loss. And bonus: my mom has been obsessed with me trying on her clothes when I visit haha. This weekend, she got me to try on a pair of dress pants... in a size 16!!!!! I mean, they were waaaayyy too tight to wear, but I actually fit into them. What life is this??
goals: next goal is 228, which is 150lbs lost.
then, under 200.

I can relate. My feelings are less jealousy and more embarrassment. I am embarrassed that I let myself get that large and stay that large for so long. I think about if I had contained myself in the 200s I would have a much easier path and not all the loose skin I have now.
Like someone else said, I basically ignore the people that start around 250, they get under 200 in 2 months and act like they have completed a magic trick.
Starting as high as I did, at 370, and trying to lose 200 pounds seems like I am just in the losing phase forever. I am actually getting tired of it. I would like to build a wardrobe again. I can't get attached to any clothing or shoes because soon they don't fit. I know these are good problems to have but after almost 2 years I am over it. I just want to get to my goal weight, or just chill where I am.
I can never get used to my new body because it is still always changing. I'm over it.
