Big Mamas October Support Thread
 
Here goes the monthly thread for The Big Mamas...

This thread is for the mamas who have a long road ahead of them... Naomi started this thread because she felt that the Big Mamas face different struggles when working on weight loss. We don't just need to lose a few pounds to feel happy, we need to drop large portions of weight to be healthy and active!

Feel free to join me and the other ladies anytime!

If you feel comfortable give:

Your name
Starting Weight
Current Weight
Short-Term Goal (ie. "X" by valentines/March)
Long-Term Goal
Weight Lost to Date
Weight Loss Plan

I know it is a little intimidating to give your weight, but I really feel it is important to "say it out loud", so if you can, say that number for the last time and watch it shrink!

This thread is for the Big Mamas...women who are about 50-70lbs or more over their healthy weight (or were at the beginning of their journey). Join the ladies and I as we work our way to a healthier us!

Your name Laurel
Starting Weight 185 (195 the month before I "officially" started)
Current Weight 155
Short-Term Goal 155 (into the healthy BMI!!!) by October1--MET!-- Long-Term Goal 135lbs or 50 lbs lost
New Short Term Goal- Break into the 140's by Thanksgiving.
Weight Lost to Date 30lbs
Weight Loss Plan Eat to keep blood sugar under control, track food using Myfitnesspal, add in exercise again.

Only frustrating thing is that when I went to grab my stats from last month, I've only lost one lb. 1 stinking lb in a whole month! It sure isn't coming off fast. I've been really focusing on upping the water today and I did a 10 min. core workout today. It's not a lot but it's a start. I have noticed my tummy getting flabbier again so I need to start working out again. I think it was tighter 5lbs ago when I was working out than it is now so I need to get back to it.

This stinks. I've been stuck at 172 for a few weeks now... What gives?! Every lb I try to take off is getting more and more difficult! This is so frustrating. I know I'm getting really close to my healthy BMI so I'm wondering if that has something to do w it? I've also been doing more strength training but I can't imagine I've built up that much muscle to make me keep the same weight these last few weeks. Grrrrr....

I gained 4 lbs doing nothing last week, so do not feel bad. I ate healthy and went right back up. You would think I ate a whole cake. I lost a few ounces to get back down a bit, but I am struggling to see the scale go back down.

You could be at a stall weight. I can sit at 167 indefinately at times. It drives me crazy.

My body loves this weight too. My stomach really seems to want to hold onto its fat too.
