I finally am out of the 190s and 200s for the first time since I was 4 months pregnant! (189.6) My son turns 2 next month and during my pregnancy I gained a whopping 80 pounds topping out at 265. The first 50 came off within a month (preeclampsia made me bloated like no other!) The next 15 pounds came off over the next year and then I was stalled until I started working out 6 days a week and counting calories 5 weeks ago. I'm only 4.6 lbs from my prepregnancy weight, which was my first goal. I feel on top of the world. I still have another 34 lbs to go to reach my final goal, but this gives me hope that maybe I can do it :)

I am hoping to be out of the 190's real soon. I'm about .4lbs from it right now. How tall are you?

I'm so excited for you!  I am a few pounds from my first goal - weighing under 200.  And that would be the first time under 200 in a couple of years.

I'm 5'8". You are sooo close! I was at 190.6 for 2 agonizing weeks all cause I made some bad eating choices for a few days! I can work out no prob but eating is the hardest part!

5' 8" here also. Big big goal is just to get down to what I was before winter, 170. My most comfortable is between 145-150

I was down to 167 when I got married so after I hit my pre pregnancy goal that's my next goal. I haven't been below 167 in 7 years, and it was really super hard to get there. If I can get below that I'll be amazed. I screwed my metabolism up really bad in my teenage years with eating disorders and I swear that has to be why it is so hard for me to lose weight!
