    I’m 1.6 pounds away from the 200 pounds. Which will be almost a 25 pounds lost total. If I can get another 25-30 pounds off before april that would bring me to 170-175 and I would be happy.
    I’ll start retraining back soon, slowly due to the limit i have on food. Even if I don’t really limite myself. I had a oven baked potato with a steak yesterday which is stricly forbidden in my plan. But if I don’t allow some threat sometime I’ll be crazy by 1 month. 25 pounds since mid august in 3 months and 2 weeks is pretty good... it’s around 8 pounds per month. 1.5/2 pounds per week.
    4 months 10 days left before our escape.. so that’s mean only 3 months 10 days left on my diet.
    I can do this.

    Hi guys. Great job..I'm holding steady. I started Nov 22 2017 and have about 9 lbs off..this is the point tho when I plateau. .
    In the past I usually only had 10 or 20lbs to lose it seemed easier to take it off. I don't start to exercise until I get my food under control and I plateau so as soon as stop losing I'll start exercising. That's my plan.. ;)

    Well I'm finally at the 200 pounds mark. 4 months till TTR so I'll go for another 20 pounds off then will time to start eating normal and readd food.
    I also had 2 slice of bread with nutella on.
    It was good and it's the only way I don't break out.

    15 pounds lost on diet in 2 months and 10 pounds before for a total of 25 pounds or so.
    Now that I got my food under control I start to do a little bit of cardio.
    30 min of treadmill ( as of now 60 % walking 40 % running )

    Hello everyone.
    Fell out the wagon during holidays but not as bas as I thought.
    Only gain 2 pounds and I have been really bad.
    95 more days before our trip .
    I’m plateauing at 201-202 pounds and unable to go under I just want to wake up amd be at 199
    My coach told me to not train and if I want to do some excerise she recommand to walk / light jogging only and I would loose some fat.
    Oh well, I need to finish my exercise room as well so might do that this weekend and start on a good streak on monday.

    After my April May trip to Temptations 10 days and then my Vegas trip for 4 days and four days in between with the family gain 7 lb I've got till September to take it off but I think the harder I try to take it off the scale doesn't go down when I wasn't looking at it the scale went down so I think cutting my portions and a watchful eye on my carbs and sugar and some exercise anything can be possible

    Yeah...same here.
    Why is it so easy to put it on...and so much fun but hard to take it off...and not so much fun?
    And I really enjoy the gym and working out.
    The old sayings of “you cannot exercise your way out of a bad diet” and “abs are made in the kitchen” and “a good looking body is 80% diet/20% exercise” all seem to be so true!

    Just saw a friend of mine on Father's Day and his doctor told him he was borderline diabetic and that was the straw that broke the camel's back for him and he cut out all starches and all sugar and he's lost 30 lb not going on any liquid diet or anyting I'm definitely trying to go that way I just keep thinking about the bikini I know it's nobody knows you nobody gives a s*** but I kind of give a s*** when I look in the mirror don't want to look pregnant LOL so what helps me is I look at an unflattering picture which I have a few of me that I don't like and it helps me want to diet also I tried to exercise but after A Hard Day's Work I don't always hit the gym

    No it is Lisa posting and I am my worst critic when it comes to losing so I have 90 days from today and I've already cut my starches and half and lowered my sugars don't know if I can exactly take them all out

    Congratulations on quitting smoking, been there done that and cold turkey does work. A few extra pounds gained is way better than smoking. We have also been in the working days and nights seniero when the kids were young, this will only make the time your together that much better.

    We have done it more than once, the quit smoking thing. The first time for me was when cigarettes went to $1.00 a pack, I said I will never pay that much for a pack of cigarettes. Fast forward 20 ish plus years later this dumb ass started smoking cigars, remember what I said about cigarettes, I then got the wife hooked on them too, what better way to be ok with something get your significant other envolved with it too. It will never happen again. Now we have to pay for the medications we will need for all our other previous bad habits.:mad:
