I'm 35, height 5'5.5", weight was 238 lbs in March 2014.
Important milestones that I hope to cross.
To reach 224 lbs - that is 16 stone!
To reach 219 lbs - finally be under 100kg!
To reach 214 lbs - that's 10% lost!
To reach 210 lbs - 15 stone!
To reach 202 lbs - that's 15% lost!
To reach 199 lbs - onederland!
To reach 196 lbs - 14 stone.
To reach 190 lbs - that's 20% lost!
To reach 182 lbs - end of obesity, and 13 stone.
To reach 178 lbs - that's 25% lost!
To reach 168 lbs - 12 stone and close to 30% lost!
To reach 154 lbs - 11 stone.
And then: to reach 152lbs - "normal" BMI for 5'5.5" height.
Eventually reach my lowest weight of 138 lbs again (that was me in late 2007/early 2008 - that is middle of "normal" for my height, and means my clothes fit well).
I am 48 (50 ->>51 now) year old married, working mother with a teenage son still at home. I have always struggled with my weight and have lost a lot of lbs. several times but I gain the weight back plus another 15 lbs.
Even now, I occasionally plateau even when I am doing everything right- I have to learn to keep going even when the scale doesn't move. I am still (and will forever) working on taking care of me, not derailing my progress when bad or stressful life events happen-emotional eating and I have a tendency to put all of myself into others and neglecting my own needs- I am working on this.
