    Default I Made My Goal Today !!!

    Hi, Buddies
    After exactly 2 years 3 months, I have lost 90 pounds and made it to my WW goal.
    I am so happy about this-excited to go into a New Year NOT having to lose weight-the first time in probably 15 years !!!!!

    I have a personal goal weight to work on now, and am looking forward to setting new goals for getting fit and staying healthy

    WW is AWESOME !!!!!

    Congratulations! That is just amazingly awesome. And thanks for sharing your moment with the rest of us. It is so inspirational to see folks reach their goal. I started out at over 250 lbs and my weight loss has been very slow (about a pound a week) and sometimes it just feels like I will never make it to goal. Was it hard to stay motivated during those two years? Did you ever lose your mojo along the way? How did you deal with that?

    Congrats again!

    This is my journey, and I won't let a little pebble in my pathway become a boulder. I'll just kick it out of the way and keep moving forward!

    Hi, Ribs
    A pound a week is awesome !!!
    I am SO grateful that this took a long time. Really. I have had the time to REALLY change my thinking and doing. I have made new habits that would be hard to turn from now. Had this been a very short journey, these new thoughts and behaviors may not have become what I am sure will be a permanent way of life for me.
    A year after I started on FLEX (and lost 57 pounds), I plateaued for 4 months. Drove me nuts-and I was beginning to get discouraged. I had been afraid to switch to CORE for so long because I did not have the confidence in myself to control my eating too well. Finally I decided I had better change something- so I switched to CORE last January, and 38 pounds later, here I am, at goal. I had plateaued again from this past July- November. Then, something finally clicked-the idea of REALLY thinking about my hunger, seeing food as a fuel to keep my body going, not entertainment or stress relief. Once I started thinking that way, REALLY thinking about it daily, the rest of the weight really melted off.
    It became a lot easier to choose healthy things, to hold off on eating, and to avoid the dangerous trigger foods for me.

    KEEP GOING.

    Thanks for answering my question Bridget. A four month plateau. Wow. I'm afraid I would just break down and give up if I was OP for four months and didn't lose any weight! You are amazing and powerful to have stuck through it. And I'm going to remember your story when/if I hit a plateau.

    I think I am also afraid to try core. Flex is working well enough for now... but its good to know that core is there in my back pocket if I need to pull it out someday. I totally see what you are saying about Core truly teaching you to focus on the hunger and not the point values of your food. I think that hasn't 'clicked' for me yet. Part of it is that my own hunger signals are all out of whack after so many years of overeating that I rely on my points values to instruct me on how hungry I SHOULD feel and how much I SHOULD eat. Hopefully over time I will learn to trust my own hunger signals and learn when to stop (still a huge challenge for me).

    Congratulations on reaching your goal...fabulous. I am also glad to hear you say that by taking a long time to reach your goal gave you a better understanding on what you will need to do to keep it off the rest of your life.

    Most people want it off NOW..
