Welcome, GoldBerry! I noticed that when I was weighing daily I was more conscious of my food choices and actions throughout the day and was losing weight more consistently.
maciascl, I looked into the squat challenge you mentioned and noticed the other challenges there as well. I am thinking of joining you. I'm going to do the squat and push -up challenges but I don't think that I'll be able to do the sit up one (I vaguely remember reading somewhere that they are bad for my prolapse, but I can't remember where so I'm going to err on the side of caution). We also have a chin up bar in the garage, and I was going to look at that program too, but the webpage isn't finished. Maybe I'll just follow the principles from the other challenges and just make up a pull up challenge for myself after I complete the other two challenges. I just think I need a more tangible goal activity wise and this might fit the bill. If I rotate back and forth between the two challenges that means I will have something structured to do every day (except Sundays) but will still be giving the muscle groups a rest in between.
I did week 1 but then I stopped. I have issues with follow through However I think the squats messed up my back. I am just not strong enough yet. I am going to start again next week but I may drop the squats for now. Either that or I will follow the same pattern but do lunges instead.
I seem to be back down to a regular 168 again. I'm doing better with my water but I'm eating horribly. I am so hungry lately. DS seems to be nursing more so that is probably why. If I could get myself to exercise regularly I wouldn't worry about my eating as much right now. I also haven't taken my vitamins or thyroid pills in a few days so that I could really test if they help or not and I feel aweful so I guess they really are helping. Starting tonight I will be taking them regularly again.
