Trying to get to my main goal weight and I have 10 more pounds to go but it seems to be taking forever. Im trying to stay motivated and I am proud of how far I have come and how strong I have become dont get me wrong. I havent been looking at the scale but maybe once a month but Im always thinking I should be losing more. Im at a pound + a little every week loss… but Im coming down to “how much more can I lose” I guess I need some outside motivation or someone in the same boat.. anyone?

I had been dieting for way too long, like the lifespan of some dogs long. And one day I just decided to stop counting calories and focusing on eating as healthy as possible. And doing that did me so much good. I’m back to counting calories now that I feel i have my health priorities in order and when I entered my info into this site I realized I’m down to my last 9 lbs! I agree even though I’m the healthiest I’ve been all my life and at the lowest weight of my adult life it’s hard to really be thankful sometimes because I feel like I don’t see it. I would say maybe start tracking body fat percentage, it’s really so much more important than actual weight lost. Another thing that’s been awesome for me in losing weight is really appreciating health not just being slimmer. Diet is #1 so try to really enjoy eating great healthy foods and mixing it up working out-try jump rope strength training intervals it’s my latest challenge! By the way over a pound a week weight loss is amazing! Who cares if you could lose more than that a week-get into a schedule that you can keep even after the weight is gone and even if it takes a little longer you’ll probably stick to it better now and when you’re to your goal
