5 to go.

I have 5lbs to go before I hit my 10%. I have never hit my 10% the most I have lost is 18lbs. I am at 14lbs down right now so I have 5 more to go to hit that goal. I also haven't been under 173 in 5 or so years. 173 was the lowest I ever hit at weight watchers and then I plateaued for a while and gave up.

I am queen of the plateau. I honestly never lose for more than 2 or 3 weeks in a row followed by 2-3 weeks of plateauing. My body just doesn't want to give it up! But I am not falling for it this time. This time I am going to ride out the plateaus until they break. I am done screwing around. I will keep going until I get to my goal weight. At this pace it will be in a year or two but what ever it will be worth it when it happens.

PS hopefully not longer than 2 years because we plan on starting our family then!

Hi. I never seem to lose any weight on a diet for the first 4 weeks so I know what you mean about your body not wanting to give it up! My weight less tends to go in fits and starts too - really annoying. But the only way to beat it is to just keep going.

Lyn of escapefromobesity's recent post "the bike" is really about this very thing. You have to have faith and keep plodding along with it even when there seems to be no reward, because it will come.

I'm sure you're going to break through the 10% barrier this time.

Best wishes,
