The eight week healthy weight loss challenge - version 3.0 (starting 21/05/21) - Page 14

post #261 of 396

177.0 this week.  I am a bit surprised and hoping it is not dehydration (we have been on a heat wave over the last few days and I am nursing and workingout, so lots of water loss).  My husband says I always say that, but I feel like I loose weight weirdly - I seem to tend to sit at one weight for a long time no matter how hard I try, and then I have a random big jump down, and then level out again.  I always second guess when I have a big jump down (and sometimes rightly so!).  I am finally really making regular workouts a normal part of my life, so I am trying to focus on my workout goals and eating clean, whole foods rather than focus on the numbers on the scale as that seems to make me lass stressed about it.  But I still have so much self-doubt regardless of when I am loosing or sitting at one weight for a long time.  I hope I can get back to a happy place with my weight, but I also really hope I can get to a place where I have more confidence in my ability to manage my weight.

 

Oh, and I made it through my 4 miler :)  So, so thrilled to be running again!!!!!!!!!  Thanks to all the ladies who encouraged me to complete the C25K program, it was just what I needed to ease back into running after many years off and I am now doing a 5K training program to improve my speed/endurance aimed at running a 5K race on Sept 15th.

 

Back later with charts and such . . .

I am extremely bummed to say that I am 193 this morning. That's a 2 pound gain for the week. How much weight am I going to have to gain before I finally get motivated and get my butt in gear???!!! I did start my period yesterday so maybe that accounts for some of the weight, I don't know. Last week I upped my thyroid pills to the same level that I was taking when I lost the 25 pounds during the first challenge. Hopefully that will jump start my metabolism. I think I need to get back to the basics. Absolutely no bread or cereal. If I have the munchies out of bordom I am going to make a cup of tea. We have no propane right now due to a dead battery  so all my cooking is from the microwave. Makes it hard to cook a fresh meal. I hope I have better results next monday. I am meeting my sister on JUly 8th and I hope to be back down to 185 like I was the last time I saw her,

post #268 of 396

Happy to report 204.5.   Earlier this week I had been bummed about making greater efforts without results.

 

I have returned to running but I still have a pulled hamstring which is something I need to look into to try to help the healing along.

 

I found the menopause conversation interesting.  I am 40 year old nursing a nearly 2 year old and I have been starting to research menopause (sadly as an easy form of birth control :}  ).  People I know don't discuss that kind of thing so it seems like a mystery to me.  I had one lighter than usual flow which made me look into it, other than that I am regular like clockwork.

 

From what I read is that menopause does not need to be hot flashes, etc.  People in Asian countries don't even have a word of hot flashes.  I do like reading the 'roses' version of things.

210.6  PMSing and craving chocolate. Still managed to lose weight anyway. Yay!

post #270 of 396

178.6 not great, but I'll take it!

post #271 of 396

Desperately need to get my behind to the gym today.  I actually had a day last week when the scale said 182.0... and then it bounced. shake.gif  then a friend in town, an evening out for beverages and pool, then a wedding with a long drive to and from... UGH. Just feeling gross.  I really should know better than to eat sugar like that.  Hoping that I can nullify the bounce this week.

145.

 

I'm a little surprised at no change.... I've been working so hard and back on track eating wise. I like to think I'm gaining muscle, so that's hopefully it. I have increased all my weights lately, especially bench press.

post #273 of 396
No change for me this week. 
I feel like you, barefootmama, I stay some weeks and then drop even though the effort is constant. And totally hear you on the disbelief. I am convinced clothing sizes have gotten roomier since pre-baby (2 years ago for me). How could it possibly be that my arse fits in size 10 or 12 when I was 14-16 the last time I weighed this much? Happy either way though smile.gif

So irritated today. I've been stepping up my exercise and eating better, less junk, etc. but the scale said 193.0 (blue team) this morning- argh! I had a late dinner at a birthday party with friends last night with too much wine to top it off. Could that be what derailed me? Hoping that I'm bak down next week...
post #276 of 396

-.5 lbs

 

Going on vacation for a couple of weeks. I am determined not to succumb to my usual "I'm on vacation so I can eat..."  You'd think it would be easier since pretty everything I eat these days makes me feel awful.

 

bleh.
 

post #277 of 396
It's been a terrible two weeks for dieting and execercise. Luckily I haven't gained weight, but I haven't lost any either. I'm still at 130lbs, sorry team!
P.S. I've been at 139 lbs for weeks 4 and 5.
post #278 of 396

143. Weigh in...

post #279 of 396

157!

post #280 of 396

So the scale said 189.1 this morning. That's a 3lb loss from my weigh in yesterday. I ate really well yesterday and I'm wondering if that much bloat could mean a gluten intolerence? Any thoughts?
