I had to get on that scale 3 times this morning!! I have been stuck for weeks and hadn't lost any weight since 4/5..Today I get on the scale and I am down 3.5 lbs which put me at 198.5. It has taken me almost 8 mnths to loose 29 lbs but I never gave up and continued to press on and LOOK where it got me. I am so happy this morning!! I have not been under 200 lbs in over 10 years!! I started MFP back on 9/25/12 at 227.5 and now I am at 198.5...There have been soooo many weeks in the past that I wanted to just give up but because of ALL of my MFP friends pressing me on that never happened. I am sooo glad I found MFP and if it takes me another 8 months to loose 29 more-I am in it to WIN it! My profile pic shows that it is sometimes not always about what the scale shows because there were several weeks I lost nada. PRESS on!!

This is great; I don't know you at all but I feel PROUD of what you have achieved! Persevering can be so difficult but it certainly has paid off! I hope that you continue to lose and feel better every day.

Great job! I always lose fast for a few weeks followed by flat weeks. It is frustrating but I try to visualize my body rearranging itself inside. First it is pulling the fat out of the muscle (picture steak) then flushing it out. Transforming fat into muscle, etc. There is a lot of work to be done inside before the results show on the outside or the scale! Good luck with the rest of your journey!!

Congratulations! You are a big inspiration to me. I am in the same boat as you. Started around the same time (8/2012) and have been a very slow loser. I've lost 36 pounds but most of it was from Aug 2012-Dec 2012. It's been very hard to lose from Jan-May. I had a 6 week period were I lost nothing even though I was training for races and running often. Even though I didn't lose any weight during that time, I really noticed my clothes getting looser and had some of them tailored to smaller sizes.

By the beginning of May, even those tailored pieces were too big. So, I finally splurged and bought a bunch of new clothes last weekend! Even though I get discouraged since so many of my friends are losing actually pounds and I'm not, I know in the back of my head that I'm shrinking. Even the fact that I can actually run 5K's now without stopping means I'm much more fit than a year ago...in which I could barely run a block. I am glad to hear your story and it motivates me more to not give up and keep going. I cannot wait to be in One-derland, as you say!! 19 more lbs to go!
