@simpleandchic: You have done a FABULOUS job of losing weight and keeping it off. And I totally understand where you’re coming from 100%. Two years ago I lost 33 lbs doing Weight Watcher’s. I have managed to stay relatively thin by loosely abiding by the guidelines of WW’s. But since I started working third shift I managed to put back on around 15 pounds. Not to mention I lost my motivation to work out.

So now I have started back working out 6 days a week (at home doing dvds and the treadmill) and have started counting my points strictly again. I feel like working the hours that I do makes it slow going, but I will not give up!

I love food as well. That’s why WW’s is good for me. I can still eat what I want and I learned portion control and that I can still satisfy a craving with a lower calorie, healthier choice. And if I REALLY want something bad, I can sacrifice for that too ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve lost about 8lbs in the last 5 weeks. And I really want to push it just a bit further! Hang in there, we can motivate each other!

Lady, I understand what you are saying as far as that slippery slope goes. Way easier to nip the problem in the bud!!

I know you are looking for support for losing weight, but to be honest i think you look your best at your current (or wedding) weight…you are beautiful and look gorgeous in all 3 pics, but to me you look nicer in your wedding pic than in the pink dress pic.  Just my personal opinion though, rock on with the weight loss if thats what you want to do!  Good luck!

I just wanted to take a second to commiserate because I’m 5’0″ too, and I know how much difference a few pounds can make. We’re so small, there’s nowhere for it to go!
I’d like to give you props for taking care of yourself though, and I just wanted to throw out there that I’ve seen your wedding posts on here a few times, and I’m always so blown away by how gorgeous you are and how beautiful your wedding was!

I’m with you!!! I’ve decided it’s time to start buckling down to lose those last 5 pounds! I’ve also lost a substantial amount of weight but I really want to get down to my goal. I work out a lot too which doesn’t always help because I’m almost always hungry!!

@ScarletBegonia:  Agreed.

I hate to comment and disagree with the OP but I find the “nothing tastes as good as thin feels” is a slippery slope all its own.  Nothing tastes or feels as good as healthy food when you’re hungry! 

@simpleandchic:  You look fantastic in your wedding picture (your arms look amazing, and way stronger than in the skinnier picture), and unfortunately we can’t make our bodies in whatever mold we want.  If fitting your butt into a certain size jeans means looking unhealthily thin in your top half, then maybe your body is just not meant to be that size when healthy.  That’s part of why it gets so hard to lose those pounds.  You are in amazing shape – make sure you’re giving your body enough food to kick that much butt.

@simpleandchic: I know you were looking for some thoughts on how to stay motivated, but can I say that you’ve motivated me instead? I’m 5ft too and I weight a bit more than you at your heaviest, but looking at your pictures now, makes me think I could get myself in a healthier shape too.

And honestly, I think that you do look healthiest in the picture of your closest weight now.
