The eight week healthy weight loss challenge - Page 13

post #241 of 347

Wow...the halfway mark already? 

 

Congratulations, Milk!  It sure does feel  great when those clothes start getting too big, doesn't it?

 

BB, I second all the advice here.  It really seems like too few calories for your activity level.  I know it feels odd to eat more to lose weight, but it works!  I hope you tried lots of wonderful stuff at the food bazaar!

 

Sorry AF showed up, Trekkingirl.  The first PPAF always feels like a holiday has come to an end.

 

Rae, I've also been doing the 30 Day Shred, but I only do it every other day.  It was NOT a pretty sight the first time I did it!  It gets much easier very fast, so that after 7 workouts, I can easily keep up with Level 1.  But I'm terrified to go to Level 2!

 

AFM, I weighed in this morning at 129.6!!  The first time I've been in the 120's (just barely) in years!  Something seemed to click this week with the weight loss...I just wish I knew what it was!

 

Go Red Team!!!

171 this morning so not much of a loss but some. I am travelling this week. Give me the strength to eat lots of salad!

I had a bad stretch during the week (V-Day involved 3 days of sugary things and poor food choices). But, it sort of felt like I needed a break from being so hard core and then I made up for it with some intense workouts and it still worked out to another 2 pound loss for the week. Thrilled with that. 

 

 

January 2011: 256

(tried half heartedly to drop some weight and did but not a lot)

October 2011: 246

Started a committed effort to drop some weight

November 2011: 236

December 2011: 229

January 2012: 225 

(began this challenge at a time when I had 2-3 weeks of not dropping any weight and was frustrated)

 

Week One: 217!

Week Two: 215

Week Three: 213

Week Four: 211

Total lost during challenge: 14 pounds!

 

 

First goal: 206 by March 1st

Second Goal: stay under 200 for 2 weeks (my dh and I made a plan for me to go clothing shopping when this happens!)

Third Goal: 185 by Mid-May

 

 

My goal for 206 by March 1st might be tough since that is 5 pounds in the next 9 days and I have been doing more like 2 pounds in 7 days. We will see. Feeling really good overall.

Buzzer, I hope your surgery goes well.

 

Trekkingirl - the first PPAF is always a huge bummer!

 

Lovetolaugh, congrats on reaching the 120s! That's awesome!

 

Pacificbliss - a loss is still a loss! Good luck traveling.

 

Wow, are we really halfway in already? We should all be really proud of ourselves for sticking with it!

 

I weighed in at 170.6 this morning, down 3 lbs. 6.6 more lbs and my BMI will officially be out of the overweight range, although I will still have way more fat than is healthy. I am doing the Slim in 6 program from Beachbody and I took my "before" pics and measurements when I started a few days ago. It was not pretty! horrors.gif

Way to go, Claybear!

post #246 of 347

117.2  this morning so only .2 loss. I started spotting this morning so maybe it's hormones this time. It hasn't been that long since my last AF, but I've been working on night weaning my ds, so maybe it's resetting my cycle. My rings are tight too so probably retaining water also. I'll just step up on drinking water this week and hope I see a bigger drop next week.

Congrats to everyone on their weight loss! smile.gif

post #248 of 347

In the beginning of the week I had lost another 4lbs and was down to 192.5! But then AF hit and sadly I gained it all back. This morning the scale read 196.7lbs. I'm pretty sure that's what I weighed last week. Hoping for better results next week.

post #249 of 347

Down to 165 ! Yea!  Hopefully it will keep going down.

post #250 of 347

I measured my hips and waist a couple of weeks ago and just measured them again today. I lost 1 1/2 inches off my hips and 2 1/2 inches off my waist.smile.gif

post #251 of 347

wow that's great! Wish I had done that. I know I've lost inches because my clothes are looser.

Thanks! smile.gif  It was encouraging for me to see, since I'm losing weight so slowly, and this morning only saw a .2 loss.

That's great Amandamarie.  I was just thinking this morning about people who take photos to measure their weight loss too.  I kinda wish I had have done that.

post #254 of 347
A day late because I'm super-forgetful, but 152.
post #255 of 347

Sorry for the late post ladies.  I am at 199.4 as of yesterday - a slight change from last week, but I will take any change at this point.  Here is to hoping this is the start of moving forward!  So tired of the scale not moving!!!!!

 

Go Blue team!

post #256 of 347

I suck .  I'm  back up to 119.5.  I'm sorry!

post #257 of 347

Do you mean 219? If you weigh 119 then that's really great!

post #258 of 347

My formal exercise for this week: an hour long Yoga class on Monday (really enjoyed), 45 minutes of cardio on Tuesday, (rest on Wednesday) and 20 minutes cardio and 20 minutes of strength training today. I'm debating about whether to take tomorrow off from the gym. My 13 month old has been doing pretty good but he was a bit sniffy when I picked him up. One of the workers just loves him and said he was playing then when he saw her he started towards her and was crying a bit. I'm thinking if I encourage an early morning nap then maybe gym time could be between naps....

redface.gif:eyesroll LMFAO!!

I haven't weighed that for a very longtime, doesn't even register on future goals, yep 219.5. Wouldn't a 100 pound loss make the pie chart look crazy lol.

Hahahha!! I would like to see the pie chart like that.

 

Speaking of which, I am late with the pie once again.  I shall be back :)
