Yup!  ROTFLMAO.gif

 

My weight loss seems to have slowed right down again, but this time around I did take measurements.  As of last week, I have lost 10cm off my waist smile.gif and 6cm off my boobs greensad.gif since the beginning of the challenge.  Pretty fricken' awesome.  I am just a teeny bit away from fitting back into my "skinny" jeans.

Oh thank heavens! I know I'm weird, but it helps to know that I'm not alone in it.  joy.gif

 

Congrats on the cm lost!  (and hope the rest of the boobage stays put!)  Skinny jeans sound awesome.

 

I'm aiming for breaking out of the 190s this week... I believe I currently weigh less than my dh has ever seen me at (and we've been together for 15 years!).  I should go shopping at the local donation center for smaller pants - either that or get suspenders.  lol.gif

It is kind of funny how weight distribution gets lost.  I sure wish it would stay on the boobs, but leave on the waist and butt first.  No such luck for me.  I keep track of measurements like bust, waist, hips, etc but I don't photograph my scale.  I have a calendar in my bathroom to write my weight on each day to see how I am keeping up.

I'm starting to feel comfortable eating regular food again instead of my diet but I got the photos back from my vacation and I have such a long ways to go. my face is still so fat in my chin is so huge. as for dieting I'm so burned out though. I have no idea how to regain my focus. frustrating. still no internet connection at home trying to use my phone

after losing 43 pounds by stopping eating at or before 5 pm, i hit a stall and didn't lose anything for about 4 weeks. now i decided to shake it up a bit and have resumed eating lightly a bit later in the day. today i had a bowl of fresh fruit, watermelon, strawberries, red grapes. 

 

i know i'm losing because my my stomach is growling again. it had stopped growling in the evenings around the time that my weight loss stalled.

I hurt my neck Thursday morning. I couldn't move it at all that first day, but I'm slowly gaining mobility now. I haven't been able to exercise and my weight has stalled at 2 lbs over my goal weight - so frustrating! Especially since I'm so so close to hitting the 50 lb mark. I'm going to try doing a gentle workout today, maybe on the stationary bike, after I take a painkiller.
And a plea to the universe: nothing else, ok?? I had the flu, tonsillitis, and a neck injury in a single week.

I'm sorry i totally missed the monday weigh in

 

193.6

 

I'm so lost and frustrated though....my weight is all over the place every day of every week.  I've fluctuated from 191-197 all over the place, without any real progress over time it seems.

 

Usually I get to 192-193 midweek, but on Mondays I'm always 195-197.   This particular number above was actually my Wednesday weight I believe.

 

I did make a major commitment to exercise though.  I joined a gym on April 18th and in the last 11 days I've been 9 times for an hour each time.  I'm alternating between 60 min. Zumba for cardio and a 60 min. weight-lifting group class each day (with a rest day here or there) and yoga is every Monday to really stretch out and reward myself for the previous week. I feel really good doing this.  It is a lovely break from my SAHM life and something for me! And my energy levels are really good.  I feel so good after I wallk out of that gym! 

 

Problem is: my appetite is a little through the roof...so eating light has become so much more challenging than it already has been.

 

Someone else mentioned the weight loss stopping or the gaining when you first start exercising.  That ALWAYS happens to me, and I always feel so silly talking about ti, because it sounds like some lame excuse.  I wonder if it has something to do with increased water intake and maybe a bit of swelling or inflammation from pushing your body to do things it isn't used to.  But the gain is usually temporary.

 

My biggest problem is aligning good eating with exercise.  i can do the eating thing on its's own and it just takes so much out of me.  I lost 25 lbs. on weight watchers without any exercise (but slowly ended up gaining it all back).  And I spent a whole summer doing boot camp before my wedding, but just couldn't commit to the eating thing because the boot camp was enough of a change and challenge.  I didn't lose anything but changed my shape and strength and felt really good.  If i could do both at the same time.  I'm sure i'd have stellar results!!

weighing in early this week due to being super busy the next few weeks.

I am stuck, stuck, stuck. 140.

149.5
inching along AF showed today so maybe that's why I stalled last week.

post #154 of 276

I ate pizza last night and my body is not happy about it.I  I'm going to the rink for an hour today so hopefully I'll feel better after that.  
 

post #155 of 276

This last week's emotional turbulence has not had a good effect on my weight.  Weighing in at 239.0 pounds. 

post #156 of 276

Last week was not a good week.  AF finally paid a visit after 2 years.  So I felt like crap most of the week and didn't eat very good,  needless to say I still lost weight which is good.  178

I ran a  Half Marathon in 2 hrs 31 minutes yesterday.  I am quite proud of that.  I kind of wanted to have a t-shirt that said 210 lbs and Running 13.1 Miles.  I think that it would be nice if people were more open about their weight and could relate better to other people.  But then again, I did not do make/wear such a shirt and it took many years for me to disclose my weight to my husband.

 

 

I took it easy on exercise this week so not to be sore before my race and my weight was up to 210 yesterday and this morning I am weighing in at 207.   No gain/loss for last week.

191.0 this morning after a weekend of eating everything in site.
 

post #159 of 276

Tell me what week we're on here?

 

At least it didn't get worse this week:

 

154.6

 

But, it's still worse than our start, and this past week I totally upped my exercise and got even tighter on my eating. I'm really confuzzled. Not giving up, but it seems I do need to set my sights on just finishing this challenge with a minus at all, never mind 8 lbs, which I'd fantasized about at the start...
