Sunday weigh-in: 210.5

That makes it official that, since purchasing my scale in mid-January and posting in this thread, that I've lost 50 pounds. I'm confident I've lost more than that, because I was working out and dieting for two weeks before that, but we just won't know. I will keep doing what I'm doing.

Someone turned me on to Orgain clean protein shakes, which I've been having as part of a light lunch over the last week. They taste good, aren't gritty, and don't have sugar.

Congrats, Big Boss! :yay:

I've mostly been just hovering between 6 and 8 lbs away from my ideal weight. I'm hoping eventually I'll break through the plateau, but I'm also pretty happy with where I'm at, so I'm not gonna push myself too hard.

Sunday weigh in: 208.5. Still on this train.

honestly, if you're holding steady, worrying about those six pounds or so isn't important.

Sunday weigh-in: 203.4. Slow and steady is winning this race. As much as I'd like to claim victory now, I need to keep this up through the summer. With 200 closing in, the next goal is to get between 170-80 and then I can lift off the gas.

Sunday weigh in: 201. Sixty pounds and counting. Would have liked to say 200 but yesterday's cheat day was a big serving of pad thai and spring rolls for dinner. Keep on keepin' on.

Hell yeah, Boss! :yay:

I lost 130 lbs in college and finally seeing the 1 as the first digit was so satisfying.

I've been hovering between 193 lbs and 194 lbs for 2 months. I'm okay with it for now, since 185 is my ideal weight and I'm really close to that, but I've switched to 16/8 intermittent fasting to try to jolt my metabolism out of this plateau to get those last measly few pounds.
