At goal and holding now for 2 weeks

I think I have this down now.  I have hit my goal of 160 and have held it for 2 weeks which is more challenging that I thought it would be.  It is not that I want to eat bad foods but I find that I am still in losing mode and have found it hard to believe that I am in Maintenance mode now.

I have dropped 99 pounds in the past 8 months and have lost a total of 190pounds since my journey began.  I have started Yoga classes and have found a calling that is so strong that it makes my soul hurt at times but in a good way.

Heres to everyone on the path and hugs to all!

Stuck yet again....

I can tell that I am getting close to my healthy weight for me, I have been stuck at 167.2 for about 2 weeks and lose .4 then gain .4 the next day.  I am still striving to be down to 160 and at 5'7 and being large boned I am wondering how much longer my body will fight me on this?

Have a great week ahead everyone and for those in the weight loss battle, stay true!

On another path...

After stalling out with Dukan I have moved to a similar program called Ideal Protein and am now losing again, yay!

Today I feel

Smaller in body 
Stronger of heart
A Longing

Ok, now to get this done...

I lost the 2 pounds I gained and now back on track for the final 15 pounds.  I have been stressed with getting the house ready for showings and trying to organize and balance all of the other life duties as well. 

I have been struggling with a cold/cough the past 3 weeks and it seems to have turned for the worse again with the stress so some hot herbal tea and some downtime are in order this weekend for sure.

I have been concentrating on higher protein levels and sticking with broccoli and asparagus for my veggies which are both good for fiber and asparagus is a natural diuretic so I am sure that helped to lose the 2 pounds gained.

I have cut out the oat bran muffins for now too and now to get off the last 15 pounds and be done with this.  85 pounds lost, wow it feels good to say that number.

Blew It....

With all that is going on in prepping the house for sale we went out to dinner and I planned on salmon but I ended up eating 3 cheese curds, 1/2 slice of texas toast, 2 onion rings and then about 2 T of Bleu Cheese on my Sirloin Steak.

I didn't go over too bad but I gained 2 pounds (mostly water of course from the salt) which is ok, I will lose it again over the next couple of days.

This is a lesson in maintenance and lose the little bit that you gain before it become 20+ pounds :-)

Stagnating Again...

Between getting a cold and my body readjusting from traveling across country for 2 weeks I seem to be stagnating so time to switch things up again:  Here is my menu for the day:

2 OB muffins
1 hard boiled egg

Veggie Salad with Tuna
1 Yogurt

2 week vacation and a good loss to boot :-)

We have been away the past 2 weeks on a working vacation which took us from Minnesota to the Oregon Coast and Seattle.  We traveled by car which allowed us plenty of hours to do some database maintenace and internal improvements on the site which went very well and things should be running a bit faster for everyone and less issues with downloads.

I managed to lose 5 pounds during the 2 week period and had a couple of maintenance days which was very nice as far as a change of pace.  I didn't do anything extravagant and stayed away from sugar and processed food as usual but did treat myself to Sushi one night and a baked potato another nite and one dinner roll with no butter.

I have changed my goal weight from 170 to 160 and just 19 more pounds to go :-)
