I have been flirting with 220 for a week or so. Haven't broken it yet, but I suspect that I will sometime this coming week. The trend is downwards, even with the occasional up-tick. As I still weigh myself daily, I see all the numbers, not just the over-all trend. Some say that's not a wise thing, but I appreciate doing it. It keeps me ever-mindful of what I'm doing. Not to the point of obsessiveness, but simply focused on what I'm doing, and that's very helpful to me.
I do need that, and I admit that I do. Old habits are hard moles to truly whack, and I still have troubles or challenges with stress eating and/or eating later in the evening. For the latter, I've taken to eating dinner rather late (7:30-8pm) so that even if I get snacky, I have the reality of having just eaten (what is typically) a largish amount of calories, and simply can't conscience eating a bunch more, so it's a motivator to not eat again. Combine that with being (typically) really tired from the physical labor of the day, and I'm asleep on the couch before I want to eat again. Sleeping through the munchies is helpful.
I'm still working on what my final "goal" weight should be. I'm thinking 170lbs. 160 is still sort-of inconceivable to me. In the end, it's not really all that important. The trend continues, and that's all I really care about.
