    that's awesome....i'm happy for you! i can't imagine how you feel. i think it's a good idea to keep goals once you've hit this one just to keep you on track. so many people gain their weight back once they reach their goal and get comfortable. i think that's a good plan to avoid that!

    Tarheel-I am 5'6" and was 135 at one point and looked terribly anorexic...so I figure I need to aim for something sustainable and healthy..I set my original goal at 155 because I have not seen anything under 160 for 10 years. Not even an OUNCE under 160. That was what I weighed February of 2007, I just couldnt get under it. Well I started a fairly sedentary job and lost site of goal and ended up gaining like 21lbs. I was at 181 in March of this year. Pretty depressing. But at the beginning of March, for my birthday (I am a march baby) I bought a 6 month gym membership, and started really exercising. I didnt really see any weight loss but I felt better and my clothes fit better. Well I called my DR one day and asked him if he could please give me something to help me lose the last 25lbs that I have struggled with and he gave me 2 months of phen. I started it at the end of April. I took it 2 weeks on 2 weeks off and lost 18lbs in 4 weeks! I was THRILLED. Then I didnt really take it, then I couldnt because I was having my ankle surgery. I only this week Monday started taking it again to give myself a little boost since I am leaving Saturday for Vacation in California. But all that time I wasnt on it I maintained really well. So I am very confident that I have learned that I will slip up, but not to let it get me down. Plus everyone here, all my phrends have been SUPER support and inspiration to me so I know I can do it this time.

    Maintenace is what scares me!

    Stilltryin, we both started at about the same weight & have the same goal. I'm 5'7 & 155 lbs looks best on me, but I am still continuing to lose weight. I'm no longer counting calories but I am still conscious of what I eat, which is probably the reason why I am still losing. I am 151.4 today & yesterday & I am really satisfied with that, but another part of me would like to see that number read 150. When I stopped taking the phen in early April, I still had almost a month of pills left. I may need those to help me with the maintenace later on.

    You are doing fabulous & goal is right around the corner!

    that is PHENTABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

    it is nice to have that five lb "wiggle room" ...my WW leader taught me to have a number and when I reach taht number to go nuts, which is usually five lbs over goal....if you try and stay five lbs UNDER goal then gaining a lb or two doesnt' do such a headjob on you.......

    Maintenance is the hard part, but you have proven that you know what to do..I'm really happy for you...

    good luck!
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    That's great. I too have set a goal a while back and it is very slow going, but your loss has inspired me to keep going. May take longer than most, but patience will have its rewards.

    Congrats....6 lbs to go is wonderful! If you decide to go to 155 it will give you some flexibility when maintaining without causing a panic.

    Default 6lbs to go!!!! OMG

    Well everyone, I hobbled onto the scale today and I am at 161!!!!!!

    That is officially 6lbs from my original goal that I set for myself back in August of 2005 when I first started to "diet". It has been a bumpy road and I have fallen off the wagon, sometimes for months, sometimes for weeks, and even days at a time. But overall I have managed to get back into the game and keep moving towards this goal.

    I am thinking I *may* change my goal once I hit 155 and move it to 150 that way I am still constantly aware of my weight and I am still "working towards something". But any changes at this point will have to be in 5lb increments since I am close already, I do not want to go to low. At 5' 6" with a larger frame 155 is in the upper healthy range, so I may aim to get to the middle of it....time will tell.

    Thanks for all the encouragement and support. I appreciate each of you!
