I don't know if you'll make it or not by then sometimes, as you get closer to goal, things do tend to slow down...
How long did it take you to get to your current weight? I'm sure it can be done because I've seen posts where people lost 80 pounds plus and hit goal after six months.
I think it is a myth about the all shakes thing. All the meals have the same calories/fat/carbs more or less..
It's possible upping up your exercise a bit from what you are doing now could help...
You can do it. That is 2.5 lbs per week. Yay! We leave in 2 weeks for Mexico. Hoping to be down 6 more lbs..
Where are you going in FL? I use to live in Palm Beach...
Tomi, my best recommendation would be to have a goal of staying 100% OP for 120 days, and letting your body lose at the rate it wants to without added stress. And then have a great trip no matter your weight!..
Freya - I think you're spot on with this advice! It is possible to do...... 2.5 pounds per week is possible. But, I'll be happy with whatever weight loss I can manage. Yes, staying absolutely 100% on program is the only way to get maximum loss from here on out! I just hate the thought of not being at that "magic" number! dang it! If I hadn't fiddle farted around the first 17 weeks - I'd be much closer to my goal than I am now. Live and learn!.
I have until monday to see if I made it under 180!..
Krista! Only 2 weeks! you must be getting very excited! I'm pulling for you to get that 6 pounds off! You can do it!.
We're actually going to Orlando and spending a few days at Disneyworld - then off a 7 day cruise to the southern carribean! then back to Orlando for a couple more days - maybe visit Universal Studios and go on all the big roller coasters!.
Just me and my hubby! 2 weeks of solid couple time! In our 10 years of marriage, this is a FIRST! and I'm sooo looking forward to having him ALL to myself!.
I'll be either at goal, or really close and I'll figure out when I get to that point if I'm going to stay on program, start transition or just go with the flow and be really careful while were gone. I wouldn't mind if I gained a few pounds while on vacation - cuz I know Medifast will help me get it off again. But, only a FEW. I'm not even wanting desert type foods anymore - the greasyness makes me want to gag! I think I will be pretty content with fruits, vegies and lean meats! The ships always have plenty of healthy stuff to eat..
I'm getting excited!..
I think you can definitely do it. But, like Freya said, enjoy your trip no matter what. Regardless, you'll be many pounds lighter in 17 weeks! Hope you have a great time!!..
