HAPPY ANNIVERSARY EVERYONE!

Today is May 13 - 4 months ago was "our big day".

Highest weight: 222

Starting weight: 211

Today's weight: 169

Goal weight: 135

Today I finally fit into some expensive designer dresses and suits that I loved in the 80's and have hung onto ever since - waiting to fit into them again. Unfortunately although they fit fine they look ridiculously out of style with huge shoulder pads etc - so out they go (along with all my size 20, 18, and 16 suits) to charity.

Time to start saving up for new clothes!

I can't believe it's 4 months already! I'm very happy. When I checked the other day I was down to 213 starting at 259. I'm happy. I know I have to exercise more but that's coming. Time sure flies when your losing pounds!

Hi! I was sleeved also in January. Down 40 lbs and feeling healthier than before...need to exercise as well. Choosing wrong foods sometimes just aching to eat what I want...but I know Protein works best for me! Best of luck. Thinking of all of you... ;)

I know!! Sleeved 1/13/14, so almost 5 months now. I've lost 83 lbs., but a lot more to go.

Canovasu - I haven't lost much this past month either. But I have a bad knee and can't exercise much. I found that eating more started my weight loss again. I was only having a shake for Breakfast, then 3-4 oz. Protein at lunch and 3-4 oz. protein at dinner. I added another shake after dinner and that seemed to help.

I started working out more and increased my Protein. I fell off for a few months but I'm back on. I bought a heart rate monitor to track my calories burned during exercise. Our 6 month anniversary is this week! Congrats to everyone. I hope to reach my goals... Staying positive and motivated!!!

Hi doneganregime1!! Can you believe it's 6 months already. I'm doing well, but I guess I was spoiled by that pound a day weight loss at first. I'm down to about 2 lbs. a week now, which I guess is better to lose more slowly.

Where are you in Missouri? I'm from St. Louis originally.

Heyyyyy mine had slowed down too. Had the longest stall. Think it's broken now. Back working out and eating Protein first. Hopefully I reached my goal weight. Staying positive!!!!

I'm in St. Louis now. Born here.

I'm still stalling here, but at my 6 month checkup the doctor was really pleased. If this doesn't break soon, he won't be happy next time!!! I always eat Protein first, very little fruit, no breads/pasta/potatoes, etc., a few veggies here and there. Not sure what the issue is. I'm drinking about 80 oz. of Water a day too. I can't do much exercise because of my knee. Maybe that's the problem, but not much I can do about it.

I was born in St. Louis too...down in the city near Grand and Meramec. Then I lived out in south County on Telegraph Road before I moved to Florida.

I'm at six and a half months and have been stalled for over a month. I am way behind on the tracker app I have. Worried I'm not going to loose more than the 50 I already have.

Hello Feeling Hopeful - I was stalled too for a month, so I went back to having just 3 shakes a day and a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese. I did that for 3 days and the weight started falling off again. Try to just go back to basics and see what happens.

I might also mention that during this "stall" I was still losing inches, so I hope you've been measuring too.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
