The eight week healthy weight loss challenge (week four and beyond...) - Page 14

Oops, double post

147.0 even. I would have liked to have done better absolutely. I may join in another round, not sure yet.

post #263 of 276

I wasn't able to weigh in this morning so I will do that first thing in the morning. I was figuring, if I lose two pounds per week on the next challenge I will be at my goal weight. My body seems to have shifted after the last baby. I am bigger at 187 now then I was before the babe at 187. For example I have a double chin now and didn't before. I thought I was imagining this so I tried on some maternity pants and they were tight. They fit normally when I was pregnant. Maybe when I hit my goal of 170lbs I will have to see if I like what I'm like at that weight. It may not be the same as it used to be.

 

I don't expect great results at the weigh in as I have slacked on my diet and excersize

154.

 

Really really mystified why my weight went up so much during this challenge, and why it was such a struggle to get it back down but still not below starting. Beginning to think I have just crossed some mystical invisible premenopausal threshold that make all my old (2 year old) weight loss techniques almost useless. I may have to switch to being someone who goes to the gym for 2 hours a day, etc. Gonna figure out my new skills and skip the next challenge - too sorry to not have been a benefit to the nice blue ladies!

My final weigh in is 181.6.  I am excited by my progress, and I am starting week 6 of C25K this week, so I am feeling better with being more active.  I am planning on doing the next challenge, and hoping to see another big loss in the next challenge :) 

 

Good luck to all who are finished with this challenge, and I look forward to enjoying the next challenge with all who are sticking around for version 3.0!!!!

Congrats to everyone, especially BFM!!  Special mention to Dantesmama too!  

 

I think I'd have to say, that even without all of the weigh ins, I reckon TEAM RED have a pretty convincing victory on their hands.  I don't see any way that Blue can beat that effort! 

 

Even though I have been discouraged a few times, and had some dodgy moments, over both challenges I have lost 9.5 kilos, which is 20.9 pounds!!!  

Also, on average that works out to be 590g or 1.3lbs each week!  It really has worked well for me.  At this rate, it will be about 13 weeks until I reach my goal.

 

Psyched for a fresh challenge, and keen not to do any serious damage during our break week! 

post #271 of 276

Congrats to everyone on finishing the challenge!  Dantesmom and bfm99 - you both inspire me!!!

 

Looking forward to "seeing" you on the next challenge. :)  Hope everyone taking a break does well and is back for round 4.
 

post #272 of 276

Well done, everyone! Can you nudge me when you start a new one? I'd love to be included. I could use some encouragement and prodding.

 

Thanks!
