Welcome to the team!
And I can relate...I've been lingering in 230/240-ville for quite a while myself!
Maybe we can leave together!
Enjoy your stay!

I have been up and down in the 230s for over a year. It is not my highest weight but I haven't been any lower than 233 since I had a stomach flu last January. It isn't were I want to live so it is time for me to head toward the 220s.

Hey my name is Celeste and I'm just really getting to 230-ville. Right now I'm starting off at 237.4, but I'm a little frustrated b/c I've been here for 2wks....maybe it's pms, lol. Hopefully my stay will be short & sweet once I get the ticker moving again emoticon .

Hi Everyone,

I've been stuck in the 230s for a while now, but hoping this will only be a short stop along the road now that I've found a bit of motivation. Look forward to chatting with you all as we make our way down the road.

Hello everyone,
I just entered the interstate today. I'm excited to be here, it's been at least a year since I have traveled along this highway and I'm hoping it's a short drive.

Hi! I'm Andra and for some reason I've been here longer than necessary - I got the 40 pounds off and the 230's seem to be my home...so I'm fighting it, I saw a 229.7 last Monday but this week I'm at 233 so I will have to revamp my plan AGAIN and hopefully say bye-bye soon!! Good luck all!

I'm here! Finally, for real this time :)

However I'm on vacation, so I just hope that when I get home in 3 weeks I"m not back in 240-ville!

So far so good, I have kept it up. My goal is to maintain or lose 1 lb a week while I'm traveling.

Hi everyone.. I am back again.

My name is Pat and I have visited this town several times this year. I actually worked my way back up to 250-ville and it has been a long trip back. This time when I leave town it will be in the right direction.
